Welcome to Our Home on the Web!

Page down and check us out; perhaps we share similar interests. Our text is "link friendly," connected to sites we especially enjoy. We hope to update at least monthly, with material a little livelier than this intro!

As for us, we live just northwest of Atlanta; our mutual interests include science fiction, science fiction conventions, watching dog obedience and agility competitions, the literate and entertaining Babylon 5 and Remember WENN, James Burke's Connections and The Day The Universe Changed, the classic BBC series The Good Life (aka Good Neighbors), Whose Line is It Anyway? (both versions), almost anything broadcast on the History Channel, Food Network's Good Eats and Unwrapped, HBO's magnificent From the Earth to the Moon, the original Star Trek, the best television game show ever, Jeopardy, and travel (when fiscally possible!). We are peripherally involved with the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company, have become senselessly addicted to our Motorola Androids and and collecting DVDs, and have yet to figure out where the time all goes...

Stats About James

Biographical Stuff
An "Air Force brat," he was born in Tokyo, Japan and has also lived in Hawaii, exas, and Alabama, but eventually his family settled in Warner Robins, GA. His greatest dream, to become an aviator, was precluded by nearsightedness; his interest in aviation and the space program continues in his plastic modelling and model rocketry hobbies and he'd still like to have a pilot's license. He spent four years in the U.S. Navy as a naval aerographer (weather forecaster). A dog lover and recent budgie convert, he also enjoys cooking; his specialties include stir-fry chicken and beef.

They Who Really Run the Household <g>

Willow
Willow, our Pomeranian mix, was rescued from the Cobb County Animal Shelter in May 1998. We know only her approximate age, so have designated March 17, 1998, as a good birthdate. Her heritage is fuzzy, like her mostly brown coat <g>, but from the tufts of hair over her eyes and around her mouth, plus her behavior, we're pretty sure she's part terrier, probably Cairn, maybe Jack Russell, Norfolk, or Border; she also has a mostly white left foreleg, three white toes, and a white blaze down her neck and chest. She fetches and eviscerates her stuffed monkey (the one named after the director of programming at AMC), and loves to chew and romp almost as much as she loves her daddy. Judging from her early performances when left alone, she was in training to sing Mimi in La Boheme; she still yowls if a door gets between you and her (cat ancestry? <g>). And, yes, she is named after Alyson Hannigan's character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Schuyler
Schuyler is our budgerigar; she is our first hen. Just in case the pet shop was wrong, Linda picked a gender-neutral name; we can say she's named after Earl Hamner's hometown, or "Sky" King, or Schuyler Grant (Diana Barry in Anne of Green Gables and sequels), or even Schuyler "Skye" Aubrey. She is mostly white with black stripes, a white spot on the back of her head, and blue draped like a scarf around her shoulders and blue "knickers." Even though she has been with us a year, she still steadily resists any efforts to tame her—we call her our "wild child"; strangely enough, however, she is a good traveler, begs for goodies like mandarin oranges and oatmeal, loves attention, is desperate to play with the cell phone, and is comfortable enough here to launch scolding tirades from a high perch and bang around the St. Francis medal fastened to the bottom of the cage. And thank heaven, she likes the Zupreem fruit pellets.
