    Very cool. As a kid in Ohio, I would find arrowheads every time the farmers plowed their fields. Had a bucket of 'em back then.

    I'm a pretty big hockey fan. Go Jets Go!

    I have a number of "geek" pursuits. I love Horror/Sci-Fi/Fantasy books and comics and am also a big old school rpg fan - D&D, Call of Cthulhu, Gamma World...love that stuff! I have a real pulp leaning though - masked vigilantes, brains in jars, rocket ships and ray guns...

    also a big videogame guy. Mostly flight and racing sims...
