What started out as a web site with a single topic, has grown to one with multiple interests, including history, travel, my American History and Introduction to the Internet classes at Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ), and on a lighter note, my golf game. So, welcome aboard - choose your area of interest and enjoy the ride. A synopsis of each portion of this web site follows.
Travel - Not just mine, but others as well. Take a look. My travels include vacation trips, complete with photos and narratives of: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia (with music), and Wyoming - but I'm working on the others. We've also visited the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Glacier National Park and Rocky Mountain National Park in the USA, as well as Waterton, Banff, Jasper, and Yoho National Parks in Canada. All in all, I've been to the 49 mainland states, in the summer of 2010 visiting the states I had not been to previously on my "Road Trip - 2010" with those pictures and stories still in process, so what you'll see, are pictures and notes from my personal travels. In addition, I've had the opportunity to do some foreign travel. Click on the flags to share my journeys to Scotland, England, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Chile, Aruba, Canada, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Others to follow.
History: Here you will find many ideas borrowed from others but at the same time, you may well find original essays, journals and other expressions that give some microcosmic sense of American History, in a manner that will hopefully be both entertaining, enlightening, and give pause for reflection. Read "A Navigator's Viewpoint," the journal of a WW II navigator and his 31 missions over Europe in the B-24 Liberator, the "Lili Marlene." You will also find Grenade - a short story - actually two integrated parallel stories - with the same plot set in different times and places. The fictional Mill Valley story is targeted to those who have not experienced the terror of war - to place them "inside the bunker." The Vietnam component is real and happened just as it is told. Also, there is a quick summary of why the Warren Commission Single Bullet Theory is not feasible. Lastly, you will find an extensive list of quotations for your consideration along with my biographical information.
Golf - what can I say? The best round of my life deserves its own place on my web site.
Jax 101 - originally created to assist work associates visiting Jacksonville, you 'll find information regarding hotels and restaurants.
