Hi, and welcome to my HubPage...

A little about me... I'm a UC Bizerkeley alum, Go Bears... I have taught history in Waipahu and Barbers Point, Hawaii, managed  international land and air freight terminals in San Francisco and Oakland, and eventually owning  a winery ( Cadlolo Winery ) in Escalon,California. I am also a proud former Marine.

In 1989, while playing in a golf tournament in Rancho Mirage, I was paired with Telly Savalas, the lolipop-sucking TV detective, Kojak. After 18 holes and a couple of Ouzo's, I found myself providing personal security for Telly until he became ill with prostate cancer in 1992  ... Telly, I luvs ya baby...RIP. 

I've been many things in my life, none more fulfilling and joyful than being a father.....I live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, Northern Arizona...

I was married to a genius. She did some of the original code for IBM in the 60's and 70's, was a private contractor for Pac Bell in the 80's and 90's, and taught computer science at Yavapai College... I was in awe of the woman. ....I have no idea what she saw in me...I lost this beautiful human being to pancreatic cancer in 2015...

I joined HubPages primarily to read and share poetry, however, my interests are eclectic and you will see me commenting on many different hubs.

Live as if you will die tomorrow; Learn as if you will live forever...M. Gandhi
