About Me
Don't write much anymore. Now I get my kicks lending a hand to the youngsters who are just beginning their journeys. I bring 60 years of experience to the site, just no great successes to speak of. Now in retirement you can find me giving reviews, the "Talk of the Flight Deck Award, and stirring up trouble at the "Dreamweaver Bar & Grill. My port is my museum. Feel free to browse. Previous Flight Deck winners are highlighted below. Pay them a visit for some excellent reading!

#2211862 by Richard ~ RL Bites!
Favorite Genres
Action, Crime, Spy, Mystery, with or without a touch of horror or the supernatural
Favorite Books
The Forgotten Realms series by R.A. Salvatore
Favorite Authors
Karen Carlisle, C.W. Hawes, David Lee Summers, Sarah Zama
Favorite Poets
Poe, Kipling; not much on poetry. Not smart enough to get the symbolism that so much of it uses to make its points. What can I say; I'm a simple guy!
Favorite Quote
"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts." ~ John Wooden.
Favorite Music
Hot blues and cool jazz.
Favorite Movies
Old ones from before sex, violence, and explosions were substituted for plot and acting ability. Folks nowadays seem to believe that the superior effects available negate the need for nuanced cinematic skills.
Favorite Shows
Looking at my list of faves, it seems to follow the movies. I think the last show I liked first-run was Law & Order. I like some of the newer British and Canadian stuff, though. They still seem to get it.
