    Oldest of five brothers, I was the one who got away with everything. Spent thirty years as a Navy Reservist. People say I'm a little crazy. Thank God, normal people lead mundane lives. My greatest love is kids and I spend weekends working with abused kids with psychiatric problems almost always created by adult animals. I like music, mostly country and early rock. Married for forty years (my wife will be given the Medal of Honor) and have four kids, a 36 and 35 year old and two 23 year olds. The twins are a boy and girl. Including me, my wife has five. Got 5 grand kids. I'm big on amusement parks and would work for Mickey and Donald any day. I've seen a lot of the world (14 countries) and definitely miss the travelling with the Navy. I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer. I love this planet, so I'm going to stay awhile. I do believe war could be a necessity only in defense of your country and not as an excuse to prospect for oil. I believe that if there is any honesty or integrity in Washington, the guy is in the wrong city. People I most admire include Jimmy Carter, JFK and Billly Graham. I'm pro-life and anti- political correctness. I think the problem with political jokes is that most of them get elected.


Sporting Event

<P>I just returned from a most enjoyable sporting event. I watched young athletes play for the love of the game. Williamsport, Pa. hosts the Little League World Series each August. Parking is free unless you want to park on someone's property, Food prices are more than reasonable and the atmosphere is fantastic.&nbsp;The games themselves are free and they usually pass a cup around for donations. The best part is the&nbsp;kids. Sixteen different nations playing, cheering, shaking hands, This is hands down better than watching a professional business whose "employees" are paid so much that our government decides the taxpayer should build them a "workplace."&nbsp;Another thought passed through my mind (short trip). How about changing the laws so you have to be under 13 to run for office. I watched these kids give it everything they got and win or lose still display sportsmanship seldom seen in the pros. Wouldn't it make more sense to support local kids organizations by attendance and forget the major businesses whose "employees" make from three to thirty million dollars a year then have to hire lawyers, if they do something right once in a while, to renegotiate their inflated contracts. The same people who are cheering the yankee (20 errors) third basemen for his 30 million are the same ones screaming because teachers want their medical coverage intact and paid for. If they were pro athletes, no one woul question it. Anyway, peewee football starts in a few weeks. Guess I'll be attending some more "sporting" events.&nbsp;</P>

    We live in a small town in northern California, and back in the early 198O's our local Little League team qualified to play at the Williamsport World Series. You should have seen this town go wild!! They held parades, and press conferences ...those kids were like heros coming back from war! It was one proud moment for a ranch/farming community!! You brought back that memory!!

    The way it should be. What a wonderful experience. Yes, we certainly can learn so much from children. Almost seems we are doing things backwards. Perhaps we should get more children involved in our adult world. Well, we can dream. Love, Shar

    i LOVE little league baseball. i play softball..i like to say im decent at it too and i just think its the coolest thing that these kids are out there having fun regardless of the score. i saw mexico lose to hawaii by about 8 and the entire time the kids from both teams were cheesing and having a blast. they appreciate more than the pros do. they have an actual love for the game, not the pay checks. well...have a nice day and stay blessed! kristina,15
