    INTERESTS
   
My wife and family are the joys of my life.  I also enjoy reading, mathematics, a little computer programming, baseball, Florida native plants, cycads, and palms.
I've been told I make great chocolate chip cookies. In my spare time (hahaha), I like to visit the Florida Keys.

Great site for palms, cycads, and seeds:  http://www.rarepalmseeds.com/index2.shtml

Solve the Quadratic Equation (I built this site on a free server -- tripod)

Excellent site for baseball statistics:  http://www.baseball-reference.com/

One of my favorite writers, the late Charles Willeford -- good site.

Florida Native Plant Society
