I row competitively (against people my age), was a regional autocross
champion ~10 years ago, and was on the rifle team in college. I watch
college football and basketball and pros occasionally. I read some sci-fi
and sci-nonfi, but not as much as I used to. l just turned 60. I'm in IT at
Oak Ridge National Lab. I play bass in a "dad band"--we play one or two
gigs per month and recorded a CD available in all the usual places online
(Shelter Road Band - Shelter Blues). I wrote a computer book a long time
ago (The qmail Handbook) that is still selling on Amazon and other places.
I drink a fair amount of beer, whiskey, and wine, and retired from
homebrewing a couple years ago. I live on 31 acres in east Tennessee. I
have three kids who all have master's degrees and three grandkids.

That hits the highlights.
