Hi, I'm a retired Canadian whose interest in physics is part of a larger interest in everything. Except televised sports and pop culture stars. I seem to be reasonably competent at dealing with concepts but getting the right answers in mathematics has always been a struggle. To me, the sciences are part of natural history. Everything from the rocks to the stars, and the science that gives it a deeper perspective. I live on Vancouver Island on Canada's Pacific coast, with unlimited opportunities for my interests. My career was as a power plant operator with training approximating that of an engineering technologist.
