Tell us about yourself:
I just recently retired after 15 years at the last place I worked at. I worked in administrative kind of occupation. Since I started working as a young kid, I've had a pretty good variety of jobs. I loved just about every job I had. Now I'm enjoying retirement. I keep myself in shape with working out and bike riding. Also I enjoy reading, cooking, and listening to eclectic music.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
I have some geographic knowledge of the USA as I've taken several cross-country trips and had vacations in various places. Also I feel like I have a fairly great knowledge of music, especially the older (classic) rock.

In the area I live in where I don't know where there's a Senior's Center and I have looked for one.   Plus with the pandemic, if there was one, then there wouldn't be much going on anyways because events would have to be cancelled.    I have done so ...

I wish that the Let It Be movie would be released on DVD.   I haven't seen the Get Back documentary, but I get the feeling that the Let It Be movie is more authentic or more telling.   I heard that it's not being released because both Olivia Harrison...

I kind of like those musicals but not crazy about them, or it's just not my favorite.   Last night I saw A Chorus Line and I really liked it.   I wasn't sure if I would like it, but I did.   It's hard to believe last night I saw that movie for the fi...

I liked Fleetwood Mac better before their "Fleetwood Mac" album (1975).  They were really great in the late 60's to '74, when they were pretty much unheard of in the US.   When Nicks & Buckingham came along, then they became more commercialized and "...
