Gene W Strasser (Stragw)

Joined 7 years ago from Lake Orion, Michigan. Last activity 6 weeks ago.




My name is Gene Strasser. There is not very much to say about myself. I have a passion for creative writing but haven't pursued it for nearly 17 years. Tried to start that novel but never finished. Even though I have written a number of short stories I never showed anyone in my immediate family until just recently. They urged me to start writing again so here I am at Hubpages.

Interested in science and science fiction. I have many other interests but I guess I am simply a generalist. I truly admire a lot of people here on Hubpages who are such specialists about their interests and their topics. I am amazed at how knowledgeable everyone is. I can only aspire to get to that level.

Also interested in fitness and have always tried to take care of myself but I have now ended up being a two time cancer survivor.

    Took this picture when I was on the train. I am sure it is the Daggett Farmhouse which means the train took me all the way back to 1754 when trains weren't even invented yet. I found a time portal. A doorway that can...

    It was my first PC. I bought it back in 1986. By 1990 I was crazy enough to own three of them. Somehow, which I can’t exactly put my finger on, this computer was a thrill to use. Why? Maybe because it was way ahead of...
