Like millions of others, I have decided to start a blog. Big news! So let’s start with an introduction (many of you will recognize this, but hopefully some new folks won’t).
Personal bio: I’m approaching 60 years old, am married to a fantastic person, have 2 awesome (and grown) daughters, one amazing granddaughter, and 2 terrific pugs. I am very lucky indeed in this regard.
I earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry and worked in the biopharmaceutical industry for 30+ years. About a year ago, I was presented with a choice; either work at least 3 days a week in another state (or move there), or take a severance package. I chose option 2. My last day of work at that company (which I won’t identify here, though again many will know) was April 05. Possibly more on this topic later. But it does leave me with time to write.
I love to read. I’m learning le francais. I like sports, meteorology, economics and economic issues, politics, music (mostly old stuff), and I hope to write a book or books eventually.
I’ll have more substantive posts in the coming days. Anything and everything is in play. Many of them will be opinions. I don’t mean to offend, so please feel free to respond and to disagree, but do it in a reasonably civil way. Let’s talk and not argue.
More to come soon.
