“I exercise religiously and I do something every day. I spend time on the floor, push ups, sit-ups and low back exercises, I lift weights, box, in-line skate, tap dance, and ride a recumbent stationery bike, which I think is the holy grail of fitness as we’re aging.”

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
