Birthdate: November 1, 1946 (67 years old)
Interests: People, music, movies, books, food, sex, the usual
Biography: Bear type older gay guy still interested in love, but maybe not so immediate as before. The fires of the heart cool as we head towards the October, November or December of our lives.
I am no longer working and I am much happier than I have been in years. I miss very little of the non-profit sector I labored in for 40 years, and I miss the few for-profit temp jobs I had not at all. Now I can be the highly influential, much-sought-after intellectual I always wanted to be -- provided I think of a highly influential much-sought-after idea. Ah well, one of the tasks of old age (which I am entering) is recognizing that some things one wanted are not going to happen and other things one didn't want are.
On many days I feel like a young man (other days, not so much) and on most days I prefer to think of myself as at least a fairly radical person.

[Aug 28, 2014 - 6:40 PM]: You don't need a rooster unless you are planning on hatching eggs. Some people think spermafied eggs are better for you. Quacks.
[Aug 26, 2014 - 7:08 PM]: I agree: start with chickens. If you can't raise a chicken, you should forget about farming. Goats are nice.
