Hi.. I'm Ron. I'm not sure what to say about myself that is not already obvious from the content of my site. Of course I love books of all sorts and will happily spend hours in a bookstore, especially if they have a place where I can sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee too.
I also love astronomy. I always have. Many years ago I thought about pursuing it as a career, but as often happens, I was distracted and ended up as an electrical engineer instead. I thoroughly enjoy electrical engineering, but the astronomy kept calling to me, so now it's a hobby.
I also love the outdoors... backpacking, skiing, scuba diving.. anything just to be in the outdoors. I guess astronomy kind of fits into the same general theme... a sort of intimate connection with the world around us, so it's not surprising that these are my loves.
Okay... that's a start. I'll fill in some more details later. In the meantime, I welcome your comments about the site. You can contact me through feedback.
I hope you enjoy your visit and find something you can take with you, whether it be information, insight, or just a smile....
