This page is part of my first attempt at a home page (bear with me).

It finally looks like all that reading about is starting to pay off (and boy did I read). It all sounded very confusing at first (still does), but after much practice, I'm gettin' it (a little).

I am learning as I go, slow & steady, one thing at a time.

As far as this "All About Me" page...well, I can't possibly tell you everything there is to know, but I can give you a pretty good idea of what I'm about, where I'm coming from and where I'm going.

I'm old enough to vote and drink, but not old enough to collect Social Security. I'm a Native New Yorker (and love it) but I have lived in a few other places up & down the East coast. I spent enough time living in Northern Virginia, Central West Florida and The Massachusetts/NY border as well as West Central NY only to realize that I am happiest and most comforable when I reside 40 minutes from NYC and 10 minutes from the Atlantic.

Ahh...The Ocean...That's where you'll find me during the summer every chance I get. The beach is the best place to go to relax and have a great time. Give me a small cooler, a comfortable lounge chair and a portable radio. It's the next best thing to Heaven as far as I'm concerned. Listening to the waves crashing, hearing the sounds of content children playing in the sand, watching people walk by looking for treasures that wash ashore are among the things my days at the beach consist of. I can walk along the shore, soak up the sun, and enjoy the breeze. Woah, I love it.

(insert me here)

Wanna Know More...?

OK...Here's More....

I'm employed full time doing a job that I'm really not satisfied doing. (Yeah, Yeah, & the rest of the world). The benefits are OK and the 401K is growing. I get a couple weeks vacation each year and have a good relationship with a few of the immediate people I work with, but there's something missing that makes it harder & harder to drag myself out of bed in the morning to go there.

Oh yeah, I remember what it was..."I get no credit for the work I do and get an embarrassing paycheck every Friday.

I listen to people babble for hours and very few things ever get resolved. The "higher ups" use words like "Issues", "Closure", "Comfort Zone" and "Challenges".....Hey, why can't people just say what's on there mind in a simple way.... If there's a problem, just say "there's a problem"...All of a sudden, somewhere during the late 90's....people are discovering they now have "Issues"(and their not talking about magazines). Company Executives need to realize that's it's the people below them that keep the business going. And that's the BIG Issue. Everyone likes a little appreciation.

I'm sorry for venting (another 90's word), but when I start to really think about it, my head starts to shake with confusion. Basically, I'm just not content with my position. My talents are being wasted. I'm a great communicator and hooked on honesty and there seems to be so little of that left in the corporate world. Oh well...such is this thing called Life

UPDATE 10/4/99:

I left the "Corporate" world and took a job as an Office Manager. My stress level has significantly decreased. I am making more money and get recognized for my efforts. I'm treated like a Human Being instead of a number and have the benefits I need. I am comfortable with the decision I made, as the Company I work for is honest and reputable.

As long as I am giving you an "Extra Special Glimpse" into my life, I might as well tell you that I'm simply saying what's on my mind...exressing myself and my opinions. Afterall, isn't that what makes this country the great place that it is?

If you find this offensive in any way, "Get Over It" or "Click On Outta Here". These "opinions" are in no particular order. I am merely voicing my impressions of life as I see it

"We are not here to see through one another. We are here to see one another through."

Narrow minded people (and you know who you are) really embitter me. You go through life wearing those internal blinders that keep you from seeing what others are all about. You're quick to condemn any person who does not think, dress or act like you.

Hey, Wake Up! Shit Happens to EVERYONE!

It's just not happening to you TODAY.

Try wearing the shoes of a Homeless Person, a Pregnant Teenager, an Abused Child or an Addict. Try being Unemployed, budgeting Food Stamps, having no Medical coverage and relying on public Transportation. Go through life with no Credit, little money or a physical challenge.

The Narrow Minded wonder how a person could act the way they do and are quick to judge & point a finger. But instead of reaching out, they turn their backs. I say... "To Hell With All of You".

Things happen Everyday, Everywhere, to Everyone and it's not anyones fault. I have not yet met an "Untainted" person. We are all struggling with something.

Try to take a moment to understand where another human being (not just like you) is coming from. Broaden your horizons just a little.

In "My World" the Benefit of the Doubt is extended to all. Only then do I form an opinion. Gettin into Heaven (if there is such a place) is not about 102 different Religions and/or Gods. It's about taking care of each other, not judging people based on first impressions, being a good listener, extending youself to others, and being honest. But most importantly...It's about "Doin' The Right Thing". I believe all the "Gods" feel the same way.

I sleep good.

"Minds are like parachutes...They work best when open."

OK...Now I'm on a Roll...

What is going on with today's youth? (not all of them, but enough to be concerned)

What's with the BIG pants? Must they wear clothing large enough to harbor a small ship under? Must the "designer" boxer shorts always be showing and must they complete the look with a pair of sneakers that can set you back a weeks paycheck? There's nothing wrong with a "relaxed" look, but hey, it's outta control.

The pants keep gettin Bigger Bigger Bigger. I can't help wonder who (or what) started that look. Some of these kids are down right scary.

And it's not just the BIG pants. There's the black makeup, the body piercings, the ultra mini skirts and platform shoes you could walk accross water with. And let's not forget to mention the multicolored hair, shaved heads, dragon lady nails and body tattoos. I'm all for expressing yourself, but are there no limits?

It's scary to imagine who the President will be in 20-30 years. I'm guessing it wil be a Devil Worshiping, Gangsta Rapping, Pot Smokin product of a Dysfuntional Family who didn't get enough attention or Discipline as a child and as soon as they screw up, they will blame it on TV, Movies, Peer Pressure, Music, and of course Society....Anyone or Anything but themselves.

Parents...PAY ATTENTION to your children.

If you don't know what they are doing...find out! Meet their friends, learn their iterests. Get to know who they are and show them you care about them (words are not enough). Talk WITH them not TO them. Spend time with them. Be honest with them. Be honest with yourself. Let them learn "good" life lessons from you or they could learn "bad" life lessons from someone else. Keep them from being a "Statistic".

Well....For the most part.....that's me. Oh, I'm sure I could go on & on....but I'm saving the "Good Stuff" for my book.

I suppose one of the most important thingsI left out is that 10 years ago I survived Lung cancer. It was a scary, horrible time in my life and I'm thankful I'm here to talk about it.

I'm putting the "Cancer" story on another page in the hopes it will make everyone who reads it realize how important life really is and how quickly it can be taken from us.

Thanx for stoppin by...Please come again!

Would ya like to see the face behind the opinions?
