Miscellaneous

Nickname - Frontier, given to me in college because of my problem solving skills with little to no resources, usually pertaining to the outdoors.
​Cancer - At age 36 I had skin cancer with level 4 malignant melanoma (not good, this is the bad stuff!) 2x6 inch section of skin  removed from my shoulder down to the muscle.  Since then things have been good.  Now I try to stay out of the sun and wear a hat. Too much life guarding and seeing who could get the darkest tan.   
I don't watch or follow sports.  I'd rather participate, plus I don't have time to keep up with them.
No caffeine for me, I gave it up when I had the cancer scare and I don't miss it at all.
Tried out for "Survivor" three times, no call backs - bummer!
Been on TV news four times - for good reasons.
Ordained Minister - I get to perform marriages!
