I love to laugh!  I enjoy hiking or boating with my dogs (portuguese water dogs), playing poker, backgammon, reading, traveling, great music, and when possible...... a fine single malt scotch paired with a great cigar.....

I love the competitiveness of chess. Unlike most other games there is no "luck" factor. My success (or lack there of) is due to my own decision making and is not influenced by the roll of the dice or randomness of cards. I enjoy the stratagy of attacking and defending and the complexities of involving every piece on the board.....

Watermelon In Easter Hay is one of my favorite Frank Zappa instrumentals

In my opinion this song illustrates the unbelievable complexities of Zappa's music
