RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

Thank you, Froggy 98!

Well, I'm going to have to take the last two days of this week off, to finish protecting my property against the fans attending FrogFest 2013. A special thanks to the Lancaster County Commission, esp. Deb Schorr, Jane Raybould and Brett Smoyer, for approving an entirely inappropriate event that will end up costing me hundreds of dollars and days of wasted time. Thanks also to all those Nebraska country fans who think a few hours of drunken fun and mediocre music is worth making other people's lives miserable.
