Thought of the Day:
"To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine. Nothing enters our minds or determines our actions which is not directly or indirectly a response to stimuli beating upon our sense organs from without. Owing to the similarity of our construction and the sameness of our environment, we respond in like manner to similar stimuli, and from the concordance of our reactions, understanding is born. In the course of ages, mechanisms of infinite complexity are developed, but what we call 'soul' or 'spirit,' is nothing more than the sum of the functionings of the body. When this functioning ceases, the 'soul' or the 'spirit' ceases likewise." 
― Nikola Tesla, Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla

I am a 75 year old (young at heart) retired IBM employee
with excellent computer skills (OS/400 and PC),
team leadership and communication skills.

If you are looking for OS/400 security or web page design (Wordpress),  I have skills your organization can use. 
For no charge, I design web pages for non-profits with a
focus on children and education.

I enjoy work, intellectual stimulation of colleagues, and new challenges. A good job allows me to use my skills and
provides the services you need.

I live in TEPOA (Tucson Estates Property Owners Association)
  • I am active in the community.
  • I like to share the Tucson Estates story. 
  • Of special interest is the development of the 14 acres to include an independent and assisted living facility for seniors.

I work hard and tend to focus on big picture and ignore details.

At IBM, I started in the age of punched card, have transitioned
to on-line terminals, PCs, and now the INTERNET.  
I currently design and implement web pages for
non-profit organizations.

I strongly support education and have donated significant
funds to Adams State University and Kansas State University. 
I have started two charities for my hometown (Monte Vista, CO)
to enable high school graduates to get more education.

 I support academics over athletics. 

My view the role of higher education is to
train tomorrow's leaders. 

The mission of schools is not producing over-paid
coaches, athletes, and expensive stadiums. 

My heroes are Jessie Owens, Lincoln, FDR, Jack Kennedy
and several of my teachers in high school and college. 
I respect the service of veterans, teachers, and people that
help others, but work for low wages.

The role of schools is to teach students to think
and discover, not just spout facts. 
Most of my career. I had to learn new things based
on past training and experience.
