I enjoy the great outdoors, hunting, fishing and four wheeling. Oh yea...and the beach. I love gardening and cooking, especially with fresh herbs from the garden. I am a conservitive christian who loves God and this country and I am willing and ready to share the love of Christ at anytime. I am also able, willing and ready to discuss politics with anyone, anytime and I enjoy a good debate. After more than twenty years in the restaurant business (management and catering) my wife and I made a decision that I would become a stay at home dad for our then baby girl, and soon to come baby boy. They are now 15 and 14 and it has been one of the great joys of my life in getting to spend so much time with them (something I did not get to do with my two older daughters 31,29.) Besides the normal daily routines of being a stay at home parent, I also still do some part time catering (on my schedule - which is totally awesome) and I have developed and am working on marketing my own BBQ sauce. Beyond that, I have a passion for writing about anything and everything from religion to politics to outdoor living to sharing recipe's. I have a particular passion for writing poetry...again...about anything and everything. I enjoy sharing some of my thoughts and opinions and poetry here on hubpages. I love my kids and grandkids more than I can describe, and I am totally in love with my wife. I try to live by this creed - Life is too short to worry about things we can not change so dont. One of my favorite quotes is "Where there's life, there's hope" (Cicero).
