St. Louis, Missouri, USA
I am married (35+ years) with 2 adult children. I am an engineer and professional computer geek who chooses to continue working in spite of being retirement age. I am also a US Navy submarine veteran who spent a lot of time underwater and in a shipyard (this may have exacerbated my disease).
