Live and let live is what I say...I love learning about a number of different things...mostly technical subjects. Closed minded people frustrate me. There are so many things to do and experience in this life and I don't want to miss out. I listen to a little of everything, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Black Sabbath, Merle Haggard, Jack Johnson, Hendrix, Slayer, Pantera, Redman, Common, Hank Williams jr and classical if I'm in the mood. I'm a huge movie buff and i have a large collection of dvds... It helps when you work on an oil rig. If you read books and watch documentaries that is a good thing. I'm a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. I've been in the oil field for about 5 years and I'm about to start taking some extra classes so I can advance a little more. It's a rough profession and hard work but I love it. And no I;m not a roughneck I'm a field geologist. I just started with a new company and have more time off so I can actually get back into trying to find "ms right". I've worked about 84 hours a week for the last 4 years with only 1-2 days off per month so i didn't have much time for dating. I love gardening, It's one of my passions. I mostly grow vegetables and herbs these days but I do like growing onamentals. I also enjoy hunting and fishing...not so much for the sport but because the meat is so much healthier than factory grown meat. I love animals and hope to be able to get another mastiff soon. Mastiffs are the coolest dogs! I was raised around cattle farms and don't care for cows or horses...or chicken (they are filthy little creatures) lol. I like to travel but only by car or motorcycle(I've never been on a ship though I hear it's great).
