Drug Rehabilitation Center

One of the first projects I did when I moved to New Mexico was the Centerforaddiction.org which was a directory of drug rehab & treatment facilities in the United States.

Why I don’t use a Blackberry. Or a cell phone.

When I left Pasadena I made a conscious choice to adapt a “slower” lifestyle. Why? Because I sensed that all that sound and fury signified nothing. Now after nearly two years here I can safely say it was the right choice.

Not a small guy

I am not a small guy. In fact while I am not fat, I am pretty big. I played football one year as a lineman in Division III so I am still pretty big. Another problem I have is that I like loose clothing.
