A little about me...

First, almost everyone (except salesmen, my brother and my two sisters) calls me Jake. Until the 3rd of January 2009, the day I retired, I worked for the Department of the Army at Fort George G. Meade, MD. I had a number of responsibilites, of course, but what I enjoyed most was maintaining two separate web sites. Now, of course, someone else is responsible for them..

I spend my spare time researching my family's genealogy, writing, and trying to master a number of graphics programs (After Effects, Premiere, Vegas, Photoshop, Painter and others I find interesting). I also play online poker. I've published a children's story, Uncle Jake's Hat, and recently published a collection of essays written by my mother, Look Not Down. I am currently working on a novel, Murder on the Cohansey, but only in fits and starts. Stay tuned on that ...

Some people consider me boring because I don't "do" the things others find exciting. I'm mainly just lazy! My family is all that really matters to me. I am very proud of my two sons and know they will do well in life. God blessed them with intelligence and talents most people would envy and I expect them to use those abilities to the maximum extent. I have always felt that God has a mission in life for me, as well, but I haven't found it yet. I'm still looking!
