encourage and edify them. It is built upon the

conviction that simplicity is best, to quote his late father:


"I like to keep it simple." - John Dykes 1926 - 2002

written Word.

For anyone who should be interested in identifying me, here is a bit of data: Raised in Riverside and then in Idyllwild, California. Graduated from Hemet High School, Hemet Calif. Served two tours in Vietnam, and one in Korea, and was a Drill Sergeant at Fort Lewis, Washington. [C-3-1].
