Also follow me on:

 I am 8 for the 7th go around (of our Sun); I will begrudgingly add that I am over 1/2 a century old. As my better-half sometimes points-out, "John has surpassed 7 for the 8th time; however, I contemplate he is more like 7 (Mental Age) for the 8th time! Will he ever reach a mental age of 11?"

I am happily married for in excess of (6 X 5) years and I am the lesser of 2 halves with three most-wonderful brats. Why are they brats you ponder? This is addressed/answered in one of my short stories. Read it...

I have completed my 2nd nonfiction book;  titled, Frames of Learning: Revelation Theory of Learning. It was published by Kendall-Hunt in the United States. It is available either directly through Kendall-Hunt @  http://www.kendallhunt.com/connor/  or from www.amazon.com 

If you don't buy it, it may indeed reach the number one spot on the most infamous N.Y. Worst Seller List! 

I love to play ice hockey and I am now a Senior Professor (so just call me "senor"). I am also a practicing psychologist... I have finally realized that I will not be drafted into the NHL as a player now that I have had my 3rd go-around at 18.  Thus, I am actively seeking a management position for an NHL team beginning in the 2017 -18 hockey season... I am hoping the Tampa Bay Lightning will employ me then... However I am willing to accept a position for The Edmonton Oilers or any NHL team for that matter. 

I must mention that now that I  have more than "tree" or four fans (I believe "tree" in Russian is 3 for you "spelling" OCDs); I still consider myself the resident expert at maintaining a low - level of fan-base; I also am not funny ("daddeo you are so not funny"). This quote is from all of our (3) brats that I refer to as TACK (Texting Anonymous Candidates) or more profoundly (Texting Anon Candidates Kick) * ouch*!

Did you ever ponder why we were born? Perhaps a significant part of your conclusion will rest on the only other inescapable part of life (besides taxes): Death. Were we born to eventually die?
