Here is how you can contact me. Please keep in mind three elements:
I am living in a sling-shot fashion presently. I live in a hotel room near Arnold Air Force Base, Tennessee where I work; I also live under the extremely good graces of Liz and her wonderful family in South Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota and have been doing so for a very long time, off and on; and I stay as much as I can with my brothers at the "Homestead" (my parents' former home) in Radcliff, Kentucky. This just means that I can't entertain you in my home office right now.
Liz's family and my own communications issues constrans me. Please limit your voice calls to between 4-9pm Central Time weekdays/Saturdays and between 3-9pm on Sundays. That is the BEST TIME to reach me via voice.
I live for the most part within the CENTRAL TIME ZONE (-5 from GMT). For those of you on the east coast, that is one hour BEHIND you; for you on the west coast, I am TWO hours AHEAD of you. Those of you in Europe or Africa, I am SEVEN hours BEHIND you.
Keeping those parameters in mind, here's how BEST to reach me.
Electronic mail is the BEST METHOD of reaching me. You may reach me at one of the following email addresses:
