I have been married for 47  years, have 2 beautiful daughters and two granddaughters that I dote on.  I love to fish and spend as much time in the backwoods of Idaho seeking my quarry and enjoying the beautiful solitude. I also used to teach astronomy for the local community education board. I have been a volunteer soccer coach and certified referee, a basketball coach as well as a swimming coach/judge.  I am also in the Big Brother/Big Sister organization as a mentor. Chess has always been a wondrous game for me.
