It all began far too long ago, smack dab in the middle of the 80's ... according to some, the death of music, with which I heartily disagree. I have lots of annoying tendencies, hopefully balanced by the ability to laugh at most anything, especially myself. Yes, I'm conservative, yes, I'm a traditional Catholic, no, I don't care what you think so don't bother trying to change my opinions. I've thought about them long and hard and people ranting and raving at me only makes me angry. I have a temper which is only matched by my desire to be nice to people when possible. I tend to throw myself into things, and once I get going on a project it's dangerous to try to get me to stop. My dad is German-Dutch, my mother is Filipino (among many other things) and I am proud of my variety of heritage.
