- About Me:
- My first experience was when my father bought me a tank when I was about 5; been hooked ever since; even helped start "The Schuylkill Valley Aquarium Society" about 1958. Just starting up again to join my daughter and grandson (who learned from me about tropical fish) with a couple of new tanks. My dog, Shadow, loves to watch them and occasionally will try to jump through the glass. He recognizes when we enter the pet store and stands up in the cart to see his fish buddies.
- Celtic Thunder, Roy Clark & his guitar (Maleguena) and the music from the 70's. Classical too.
- Jaws, Fiddler on the Roof, SciFi movies & horror movies too.
- Who I'd like to meet:
- Roy Clark & all the Celtic Thunder singers, Topol and Mac Davis, Rod McKuen and Sean Connery.
