Here's an update in no particular order, except as things pop into my head (a process which seems to be taking noticeably longer these days).
My family moved to Pottsville PA in the summer of 1967, leading to one of the great disappointments in my early life, not graduating in the AHHS class of 68. At Pottsville I continued my illustrious high school wrestling career, adding "worst wrestler in PAHS history" to my existing title of "worst wrestler in AHHS history". I graduated from Lehigh University with a degree in biology, the beginnings of a lifelong interest in college wrestling and absolutely no clue about what to do next. While contemplating my next move I worked as a roofer and lunch wagon driver. Roofing/construction turned out to be a useful life skill but lunch wagon driver - not so much. Fate, in the form of a newspaper ad for a QC Supervisor, intervened leading to a 35 year career in food products Quality Assurance. I retired in 2009 after 30 years with Nabisco, finding myself again with no clue what was next. As before fate intervened, this time as an ad for a Introductory Standup Comedy course at a local college. I took the course, continue working with the teacher and began performing in local comedy clubs. I also do corporate functions and produce comedy benefit shows for charities and philanthropic organizations, so if you have one of those pesky comedy emergencies, now you know who to call. Hard to imagine? Check the video link and see what you think. .

Along the way I managed to find a wonderful wife and have two marvelous sons who are pursuing successful careers in medical research and computer systems. Who knows what's next, but I'll certainly let everyone know if they need to tune in the Comedy Channel. ;-)

Nov. 2014 Progeny update - we now have two wonderful grandchildren, Lucia age 2 years and Oliver age 2 months. This will come as a great disappointment to other grandparents but Lucia is the cutest and smartest granddaughter in the world. It's a little soon to tell about Oliver but we hold out great hopes.

September 2015 Oliver update - approaching age 1, Oliver turns out to be the most laid-back and amiable kid imaginable. Everybody wants to hold him which he seems to enjoy. At my younger son Andrew's wedding last week, Oliver spent most of his time picking up older women at the reception. ;-)

Some of my favorite bumper stickers:

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case - coincidence, I THINK NOT!

My comedy channel - Fox news
My news source - Comedy Central

...... and on which day did God create the fossils?

I'm not a member of an organized political party - I'm a Republican
