several hobbies, and the main problem of my life
is that I don't have enough time for them.
love horses and Montana,
particularly Bandit, my
horse. And, paradoxically, I also love New York
And as you've probably figured out, I love
computers and technology and gadgets in general.
I also take pictures,
even more so since I started the Web site. Mostly
they're just snapshots of people I don't
have Beate's artistic eye.
As for the performing arts, I love the
theater, always have since I was fourteen. We go
to the theater about once a week (see my theater page). We also
used to go to the movies a lot, but since we have
Li'l House and I work on
my Web Site during the weekends, we haven't gone
as often. Beate loves the opera; I tried it for
two years, but the part I always liked best was
the falling curtain, so I finally decided opera
wasn't for me.
I read; my favorite are intelligent spy
stories (John LeCaree, etc.), unfortunately,
there aren't many really good ones. If you know
of any, please e-mail
me. When I lived in Germany my friend Gerhard and I started to
collect science fiction magazines. I still read
it occasionally, but real good ones are hard to
As far as music is concerned, when I came to
the States as an exchange student in 1961 folk
music was the rage, and I loved it. My favorites
are still Pete Seeger, the Weavers, and
especially Woody Guthrie. I branched out into
country, and I like old-time jazz from the 20's
(Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, etc.)
I play squash, not very well, in fact,
embarrassingly badly, when you consider that I've
been at it for over 15 years, but I enjoy it.
