My latest Wikipedia pursuits are list in the box to the right.

I am interested in local history and biographies of early settlers in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Minnesota. I find the U.S. American Revolution a fascinating period of time to explore. It is astounding how much information is available today through the Internet on the colonial time period.

I am an advanced novice Wiki markup user and love learning new ways to add and format content. Thank goodness for the bots and kind users that help find my typos and spelling mistakes. I welcome your feedback.

These are a few of my favorite books and movies:

  • Lawrence of Arabia (film) by David Lean, 1962
  • Richard Rhodes (1986). The Making of the Atomic Bomb.
  • Obama, Barack (1995). Dreams from My Father-A Story of Race and Inheritance.
  • Levinson, Peter J. (2005). Tommy Dorsey: Livin' in a Great Big Way: a Biography. Cambridge, MA, Da Capo Press. (ISBN 9780306811111)
