I am glad that I cleaned up my backyard on Saturday. I woke up to snow this morning. The weatherman had been predicting snow for Sunday - it came just a little later than I expected. I drove through a small blizzard at Lake Point. As I went west it cleared up and there was no snow at the plant. It is, however, markedly colder today. I was glad for the moisture. The warm days started all the plants and trees growing and budding out. But it also dried up the soil and I was considering turning the sprinkler system on to water the yard. I don't like to do that at this time of year because it can still freeze at night. So this precipitation should take care of it for a few more days.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
