Member of the Derndingle of Mystery and fanatic of www.lotrplaza.com When I am not exploring my passion for the works of JRR Tolkien through writing, role playing, and discussion, I am reading books way over my head on subjects that range from Quantum Physics to the Brothers Grimm fairy tales. I also enjoy tempting an ulcer debating politics and religion. After working in the IT industry for twenty years I took leave to raise my children. I majored in programming in college, and now code for fun, charity, or food. I'm not picky. For the most part I have a little to say about a lot of things.
