I'm a research engineer at Bose by day, practitioner of Aikido by eve, a lover a food that makes me giggle ("how'd they think of that"), an occasional cook and a lapsed photographer. My wife and I live on a 3 acre "ranch" 25 miles NW of Boston along with a horse, a shiloh shepherd, 3 goats, 8 (+/-) chickens and 2 kittens. She loves to spend time with her animals and they make it hard for her to travel (actually, that's one reason that I think she likes them ;-) but I need to escape on solo vacations a couple of times a year. When I travel I don't sightsee but prefer to try to absorb the day-to-day feeling of a place. I haven't discovered my favorite destination. As a guest, I'm likely to be quiet. 'Nuff said?
