My name is zeke. A geek? Not hardly. I'm about the farthest thing from a computer geek. If I had to break out of a wet paper bag, I would need to search online for instructions. Aaw, that's not completely true. I can get out of a wet paper bag; it's the computer where I need my help.
I live in Brasil, in the most populous state of Sao Paulo. For fun, I write short stories, poetry, articles and post a lot of my work on Helium and Xomba. I have some nasty habits that have taken centuries to develop. They are called collections. Yes, coffee cups, medical industry pens, oil lamps, rocks and books. I love reading, watching movies, listening to music. Favorite musics include (but are not limited to) Classical, Oldies (50s, 60s, 70s), Country Classics and Easy Listening (Kenny G, etc).
I also teach English to Brasilian businessmen and women who need to know the language to communicate with English speaking countries. I majored in English, especially composition, while attending Idaho State University from '93 to '98. I love to write my own lessons rather than use the English books that have flooded the book markets of the world.
Meeting new people is one of my passions. I love discussing current events of the world, especially the upcoming presidential race. Meeting new people means an exchange of experiences, intelligences, and the opportunity to learn new facts about something, yea, anything.
I listen to a lot of Internet radio because the medium-sized farm community in which I live doesn't have a lot of classical or American country music on their radio stations. Please don't be bashful with me. Stop by and say hello, say good-bye, say something. I field questions and comment on remarks and statements.
May God bless those of you who desire to be blessed; and may our God bless the United States of America and bring her up from the depths of political devastation into which she has fallen. Amen!
