Details

  • Hobbies & Interests
    Besides vacations and cruising I like to play golf and dabble in cooking. I am a huge watch freak and have over 50 in my collection. For whatever reason I also collect jackets too, thus my user name.
    I am a huge WW II hx. buff, esp. the Pacific theater.
  • Music
    Mostly old school rock and roll though my tastes are broader than that but no rap.
  • Movies
    Some of my favs are:
    The Ten Commandments.
    The Godfather.
    Midway.
    Titanic.
    Anything about the Titanic I suck up like a sponge.
  • TV Shows
    History shows
    Travel shows.
    Law and Order.
  • Sports
    I like most anything but as for participation is golf.
  • Food
    My tastes are wide ranging and I always like to try anything ethnic. I love Indian food in particular.
  • Pets
    Allergies
  • Books
    I am not much of a book reader but love travel mags and suscribe to several. I have been reading "Samurai" by Saburu Sakai who was the leading Japanese air ace in WW II. Very interesting.
  • Quotes
    "I fear all we have done is to rouse a sleeping tiger and fill it with a terrible resolve."
    Adm. Yamamoto's statement after the Pearl Harbor raid. How true.
  • Occupation
    RN, now retired.
