Computers are my hobby, my life.  I am the family and friends expert on all things technical. See the My Story page for a deeper understanding of my background.

Dogs

I love my Golden Retrievers, and enjoy taking them to the park and in the car with me.  There’s a lot of fur on my car, but that’s just they way it goes.  Currently I have Snappy (the alpha), Pearl (the little white cutie), and MJ.  Mj is my son’s dog, but she has vision issues and is better off staying with us.
