Profile Information

Where I Live:
Valley
About Me:
My wife, Flozilla, and I own Old World Imports in Nob Hill - consuming much of our time with the shop and Nob Hill activities and planing. Yard work and gardening have been my recent obsessions, music (playing and listening,) woodworking, and kitty petting pretty much keep me otherwise occupied.
My Website:
http://www.oldworldimports.net
What I'm Reading:
through the heart of ohio -- the history of the interurban railroad at the turn of the century in central ohio. I'm a history buff.. and the result is my dorky and nostalgic website that I created for my hometowns 200th anniversary. www.greetingsfromdelawareohio.com
