I am into all kinds of music genres [with the obvious exceptions, of course], enjoy high quality music formats, especially good quality analog. Hardware includes tube operated devices with other clean hardware in the music chain. Would like to get into the internet world of high quality music downloads but knowledge base and funds are limited. I would like to be able to learn how to download quality formats into an ipod. I have learned how to convert lp's to lossless cds using a lexicon outboard soundcard and windows media player and they actually sound better than the store bought cds in many cases.
I just became a senior citizen this year.
I also like to workout, mountain bike and fish. Enjoying creating things by hand, ie pastel pencil drawings and woodcrafts.
Xmas of 2010 my family and I are doing winter sports in Waterville Valley in New Hampshire. That will certainly be different.
p.s. That's me with my daughter Emily setting on my lap on the right side of my profile picture. My wife Susan is on the far left. The rest of the picture features my brother-in-law Bruce [an Englishman by birth] and my nephews. My sister Lisa French Walker took the picture.
