I was born in Los Angeles and grew-up in Culver City, California until my parents moved to Oregon when I was in High School.
My wife and I love to travel and meet other people...our last adventure out of area was when we traveled to the Brittany Area of France to meet with relatives. One of my great grandfathers migrated from that area and we were the first to return. I have some Swedish and Basque I would also like to investigate. My wife's heritage is Norwegian, Russian, German and Irish. LOL, we seem to get along :-)
A grandfather myself and like most grandfathers, I love my family with all my heart. I care for most people and I believe that people deserve a chance, and I believe we are all one race, the human race.
I believe that just because I believe in something, it does not make me right and others wrong, and I reserve the right to change my position on certain issues base on well structure arguments that convince me to change my mind.
I believe that the end does not justify the means to that end, so I believe that the journey in life matters...My personal belief is Jesus Christ was liberal based on his philosophy for compassion, equality, inclusion, forgiveness, tolerance, peace, and most importantly love.
