Howdy from Texas, Folks! I am a Geezer but I like to think I rock (at least in Geezer terms). I have an oldies rock band and I'm the lead vocalist and rhythmguitar/bass/keyboard guy. The group's name? You guessed it. The Geezerz. I've had three careers: 1) entertainer for 15 years 2) Firefighter/paramedic 14 years and finally 3) RN, MSN for 14 years. I have two grown children and my second wife of 19 years. I have many, various hobbies and interests including computer marketing, writing, playing music, amateur archaeology, geography, traveling (when gas isn't the same price as gold) and golf. I love home grown tomatoes! I've got three grandsons and another on the way and I love being an American! Life is GOOD!!

I've got a couple of websites that you may enjoy, depending on your own interests. I started on a bet from a young female coworker who is really big into designer handbags. She bet me that I could not put together a successful website about bags. It took me a year but I got the best of that bet.

I'm somewhat of an expert on dieting, both from my own experiences and from my line of work. I do believe that if you keep your gut cleansed, you'll live longer and have more energy, so I took a little time and put together I got tired of so many people not making any effort to understand how and why a specific diet works so I gave them a website to help them understand it while, at the same time giving them the knowledge to understand why there is no super shortcut to losing weight. That's a fairytale and I show them why. Most people also don't understand that there are intestinal parasites in most of our bodies that cause severe toxin build-up but that these conditions can be resolved relatively easy.

A few years back I discovered that there are people out there who actually BUY websites. I started designing and successfully selling them after that discovery and it's been a blast (not to mention lucrative :-)

Have fun and look at some of my other hubs. Hubpages is an awesome environment for speaking out. I love this place!
