I retired three years ago after 38 years working in some of the largest bureaucracies in the world. These included the US Navy (Nuclear Power Program w/Adm. Rickover 70-75), the state of California (CA State Univ., Northridge 75-93), the UN (Internat. Atomic Energy Agency 69-71 & 79-81), & US Coast Guard (CG Academy 93-08). I am now enjoying relaxing with no alarm clock and sharing the exploits of my wife and children. My wife, Valerie, was ordained as an Episcopal priest 10 years ago and is running a very effective program for women at the nearby state prison. Our daughter, Christina, had her first child (our first and only grandchild) last year and is consulting part-time for a woman’s center in Pittsburgh while assisting her husband in applying Toyota management systems in health care. Our son, Mark, just completed a year-long adventure to tour all 50 states and produce a full length film documenting efforts to further sustainability. (Check this out at YERT.com) Our son, Warren, is homesteading in Vermont, making pottery, growing a huge garden, raising chickens and bees, and producing lots of maple syrup. (Check out his activities at Meadowhawk.org.) Life continues to be interesting, and I am looking forward to sharing stories with Shaker classmates.
