Re: New "get to know you" question
I live in Las Cruces, NM (Not Mexico), USA. I'll be 40 in January and
have lived mostly in NM, but also in Denver, Orlando, Tampa,
Riverside, CA (was called Sunnymead back in 70s). I have worked in 12
states and been to many more. I got my BSCE from NMSU in 1995 and did
one year pursuing a MS in structural engineering then a year towards a
biology degree before I decided to get a job and make some money. I
am a licensed Professional Engineer (civil, structural and
construction) in NM and work for my best friend's wife doing
engineering and construction for private and government clients.
I listen to music and watch a lot of tv and movies with a collection
of over 800 cds, mostly classic rock and blues, about 800 or so dvds
and a growing contingent of blu-ray discs...yeah, I have hit the $5
bin far too frequently! I like working on remodeling projects,
shooting, hunting, motorcycles, 4x4s, electronics, photography,
pyrotechnics, woodworking, metalworking, traveling, etc... I am a
shooting instructor for the Appleseed Project.
I still play D&D and other RPGs with friends from high school and
college every once in a while. And while I need to catch up on a few
of Ray's newer books, I have yet to read one I didn't like. Magician
is still one of my all-time favorites, along with The Hobbit, The LOTR
trilogy, The Stand, Faerie Tale, etc.
