Like chess, movies, walking, fixing laptops, beer...old now but used to like all types of individual sports: swimming, martial arts, yoga, long distance running, triathlons, scuba, climbing/hiking...like to be out in natural setting, have a green thumb to. All the injuries I thought healed years ago are coming back. Have Master of Science in Geology and worked in petroleum and later environmental science back in the 1980s/90s before the lawyers got involved. Started chess when I was 8, just as something to do...quit at around 14 when lost interest....picked it up again when I was a about 50, started and ran a OTB chess club for about 5 years in Florida, got tired of running it and passed the responsibility on to someone else but keep playing as a member. Would like to start another OTB club but can't find any local members here in Litchfield County, Connecticut....just moved back here a few years ago from Florida after a 21 year absence.
