I collect coins. I have for decades. My grandfather did too. My numismatic interests are varied but in particular I am interested in coins from the California Gold Rush era and ancient Judea. I keep my coins in a safe deposit box at the bank and enjoy occiasional visits to hold history in my hands.

I have played guitar since I was 13 and to this day I find peace among the 6 strings. I love picking and strumming before the sun rises, or in my back yard as my goats munch on leafs.
