The Creation ...
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
And the earth was without form, and void;
and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light and there was light ...
I am a resident of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
I was born at Yokosuka U.S. Naval Base (near Tokyo),
Japan on March 13, 1956. My father is retired US Navy
and therefore our family has lived in various locations
during my early years. I have one younger brother, Mike
who is married to Linette (photo). After my father retired
from the Navy in 1976, our family settled into Hayward,
California which I consider my home town and state.
I am a retired Lockheed-Martin employee (July 5, 1978 to
April 29, 2011). In my post retirement years, I currently
work locally at nearby White Sands Government Facility.
In my spare time I  design web pages, enjoy backpacking
and fishing, travel to various historical places and play chess.
