I married Cinda in 1982.  We have one son, Taylor, born in 1989. In addition our family consists of a beagle, Cleveland and two Siamese; Toro and Wasabi.  We've lived in the Hermiston area since 1982. Enjoy time with family; biking, golfing, working outdoors and travel.  Seems I never have the time to read everything I'd like.
