A little bit about me

Retired math teacher by day sawdust maker by night!

I've been signed up here at Lumberjocks.com for a while but haven't contributed lots because of lack of spare time of which when I had it, I used it to make stuff. I have time again. I retired in June 2009 from the public schools I worked for. That was short lived since I taught 2-3 math classes at Heald College twice a week but have stopped teaching there too. Kept me out of the bars... ;o)

I live in Herald, CA about 20 miles southeast of Sacramento the capital where I taught Mathematics to middle schoolers for the last 21 years and 6 more in Albuquerque, NM. I was a MAC and MATCO man in between times (probably why I like tools so dang much).

I have 2 kids and two grandsons. My wife Betty, is a horse Vet and we have lots of critters...

Thanks for checking out my site,
