I live in Newfield/Ithaca, NY; I arrived at Cornell University in April, 1992 immediately after finishing my PhD at the University of Manitoba in Canada. Consulting projects with General Electric Power Systems in Greenville, SC and Aircraft Engines in Cincinnati, OH took me out of Ithaca for a couple of years. Ithaca is a great place to go hiking with all of its gorges and waterfalls and local State parks, but I miss Greenville,SC, which is close to the Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains; the weather is a little warmer and Myrtle Beach is a lot closer.
I have two great kids - Zane and Max - who keep me motivated. Zane is at the Univ of Utah now working on his MSc. Max is at Alfred University - studying Engineering.
They are both Eagle Scouts; Zane's Eagle project was related to Newfield's vernal pools and Max followed this up with his Eagle project and website.
Here are a few of my favorite pics.
I have been working on my house slowly. Lance finished my bathroom and helped me with the mantle in the living room. I finally put the porcelain door knobs on the bedroom doors. I am working on putting tongue and groove cedar on the living room ceiling now. I just have a few pictures here.
Here are a couple of my favorite poems.
