Who R U?

A while back Garfish mentioned he lked the idea of getting to know some of us better.As no one has started a thread like this before I will take the plunge.I have been involved in and read many heated exchanges here in AudioGon.I hope no one attacks me for this thread saying "who cares about you,this is audio" Anyway,Im 45 and live in W.N.Y.I have never been married but have a music loving 11 year old daughter who lives with me.I have been a nurse for 20 years.Before that I was a Navy Corpsman for several years.I recently became engaged (first time) to a beautiful 30 year old music loving woman.At my age a 30 year old is a keeper and I have never been happier!! My other interests??Im into vinyl,who has time for anything else??
Hi Frank! If you're not already a member (can't tell from the handle) I'd like to invite you to join the NJ Audio Society (part of this is selfish, I'd like to force you to host a meeting so we can hear those systems!). Welcome aboard! Whereabouts in NJ you from, if I may ask?
I am 21 and have been doing hifi for about 10 years now. I got hooked when my father bought a B&O system (yes, I know what you're thinking) and I came to understand that there were stereos made by companies other than Sony. I just graduated from college and am a software engineer with Hewlett Packard in Ft. Collins, Colorado. I used to be really active on Audiogon but left for a while when the board got shut down, but I am glad to be back. My hobbies are music, movies, reading and trying to explain to people that Bose is not the end-all in stereos.
nhorton: welcome back to the 'gon from a fellow coloradan. if you're interested in attending some openhouses in denver to hear some of the best components available, send me a private email and i'll get you on "the list." -kelly
I am a 59 year old semi-retired restaurant developer from beautiful Spokane, Wa. I have been married for 15 years and have three kids that are 10 12 and 14. I have only been involved in this hobby for one year, but I can see how addictive it is. I am amazed at the amount of knowledge that is avaliable on this site. I hope to be able to contribute a little more when I become more knowledgeable. Looking forward to the CES show. Best regards to all. Rivercitylad
