Favorite Memory of High School:

Tuna on half a pizza roll with iced tea. Butter on half a pizza roll with iced tea when funds were low.

Favorite Song of the period:

It was a great musical period with groups like the Who, Jethro Tull, King Crimson and Emerson Lake and Palmer, just to name a few. The concerts at the Filmore East gave me some wonderful memories! Of course one of the classic songs was James Brown's 'Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine'.

Plans for retirement?

I am living the dream.

Comments:

After graduation, I spent a month in London and then 3 months in Israel working on a kibbutz. I returned to NJ to deliver pizza, play in a band and go to college. I went to Europe (with Robert Lyons) to hitchhike around for 4 months and then returned to NJ to deliver pizza, play in a band and go to college. I spent a year living with my band (Nikita Boone) in White Meadow Lake and during the day I drove a school bus taking autistic kids to special schools in Princeton and New Brunswick. After that I went to the UK for four months to hitchhike around and returned to NJ only to move to Tucson for a couple of months and then up to Phoenix where I married, got a job designing machines, and had a couple of kids. We got tired of the heat and moved to Connecticut, which was great. We moved back to Phoenix for family reasons and then over to Texas where I worked as a designer on the Superconducting Super Collider. We moved back to Connecticut and then after that, California. The kids were out on their own and I got separated and after a couple of years I met my present wife online. She moved from the UK to California, and things were good, but we decided the UK would be a better place to live so we packed up and moved here, to a village near Cambridge.
