I've got plenty of business sites, but none for me on a personal basis. So, here it is. If you ever wanted to know anything about me, my family, stuff I've done, or other things ticking away in my crazy brain, here is the place to do it.
Not that I think anyone really has a great desire to know me better than they already do, but if you are surfing the internet late one night, you might find something here of interest or to amuse you. Anyway, thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy your stay.
This is a growing site, very incomplete right now, but I work on it a little at a time as my hobby, so hopefully, every time you visit you will see more and more worthless stuff. It reminds me of my Erector set that I had when I was a kid (remember those?) .
I loved making things with it. Well, this is my adult Erector set. Ray

It is heartbreaking for a father to deliver this news, but, my daughter Karen passed away Friday, Aug. 16, 2019 with Renee and me at her bedside. The end was peaceful compared to the intense pain from cancer that had consumed her body in the weeks prior to passing. Her husband Ben was wonderful throughout, making sure she was cared for properly.
