About mePlenty to tell unfortunately not much of what I can tell will be of outside interest. I love history evident by my library. I have a website that is somewhat in the historical way by reuniting individuals with their ancestors photos ( link below). Very happily Married,with 4 sons now grown 10 great ( like in wow!) Grandkids . Principal Scientist for a Major Food Company . Travel as much as affordable and when I have the time ,Spent 10 days in the UK in 2008 visiting haunts of Henry Brooks Adams , fell in love with England and plan on returning soon. Self styled a Fun Loving Foody as I am a Food Technologist who has been lucky enough to travel much and experience "Food" from many perspectives , Like I said before I love history and I chase it , in the past Henry Adams ( See my blog http://www.deadfred.com/blog/2008/05/16/whens-tea-time-in-england/) . Presently chasing the Bloomsbury Group , I find them very interesting in thier pecular-ness especially the peripheral people like Lady Ottoline Morrell , Vita Sackville West & Vita's husband Harold Nicolson,Raymond Mortimer ,Dora Carrington, Ralph & Francis Partridge. Their relationships are not really what I find the most interesting as much as how much their personalities effected their contemporaries , you and I plus today's society and much how they differed from society during the late Victorian and Edwardian eras.

About my libraryNot all of the books listed here are in my household library , some , just a few, are in my head having read them over the years. But each of these cerebral copies are as much a part of me as the ones I can still reference off of the household book shelf
