Under the Influence of Books

Things that keep me busy

My "I love me" file

The following is a list of activities showing much the same kind of information that appeared in my annual performance reports in the Air Force. I used to have to review what I did each year--it was a refreshing reminder that some of my non-work activities meant something to someone. I'm not listing the work-work things that I normally would include, but work does keep me busy and we've done so much that it would bore you (we've moved several small mountains).
