welcome... me.. just a sinner.. a listener, an observer, a thinker, an admirer... I am an Orthodox Catholic Christian interested in computers, electronics, automation, soccer, life, love, Truth, The Holy Church, The Holy Trinity, The Holy Bible, ethics, morality, philosophy, religion, spirituality, and pro-life.

The Holy Orthodox Church in America received me into membership by Chrismation by Fr. Rev. E.A. (Simeon) Weare, memory eternal, in the parish St. Nicholas the Wonder-Maker in 1992.
