I retired about a year ago after 34+ years as computer chip designer with IBM. I enjoy hiking, bicycling, wine-tasting, traveling, sight-seeing, music, and reading (mostly non-fiction).
I was fortunate some years ago to have an assignment in Italy, where my wife, two daughters and I spent 2 and a half delightful years and became fairly fluent in Italian. (I can still dredge up a little in a pinch). I'm currently studying Spanish.
