Some facts about me:

- While in Ontario, I acquired my private pilots license and flew some 440 hours (Most of the landings on lakes with a Luscombe) before moving to Ohio in 1992.
- I spent 8.5 years in Bangladesh doing member care for several families
- I have knitted 3 sweaters, love crossword puzzles, chess, hiking, travel and photography.
- Have a lovely wife, two sons, and three grandsons, who are teenagers.
- Bengali curries are at the top of my list of favorite foods.
