About Me

My photo

Did Socrates say "Know Thyself", or was he misunderstood, as all are. Show Thyself is all we can do. The knowing is unknowable.  

I am filled with joy.  It can't be helped.  

Became a Farmer, Builder, Musician, Tank Commander, Librarian, Lawyer and Minister. I have failed at many things. And now retired.  Filled, just filled, with Joy.

The X PRIZE Foundation

Dr. Peter H. Diamandis made a personal wish with global implications. Founder and chairman of the X PRIZE FOUNDATION, he set up an organization that rewards tangible scientific achievements: For example, manned space flight (awarded Oct 4, 2004), fuel-efficient vehicles, rapid human genome sequencing, and nanotechnology.
