Stumbled across bleep quite by accident, but was intrigued by the simple yet elegant usage of words. I'm "old school" science-fiction (as distinguished from 'sci-fi') background. Heinlein, Asimov and Clarke are the Trinity. Not to say I don't enjoy other writers, but those are the ones that helped form my idea of what good science fiction is. Probably gave away my age there, but that's ok. I'm semi-retired now and just do a little consulting work on the side. That could get real old real fast, but I'm looking to buy a small property where I can raise and tend some animals...just maybe some goats and chickens. Cattle are too much work, as I know from experience. Mostly I just want to get out of the city and the insane taxes here, but getting back in touch with my rural roots would be great too.
Well, just looked at my first post here and...wow. That's probably more words than I've spoken aloud in the last week. One reason I like the English language as much as I do is because, if needed, one can be down-right terse, or wax verbose...and still carry the same message. Anyways...I have a good feeling about this.
