    I'm Looking Forward to This

    Gruss Gott! I'm retired from the investment business with UBS. I took 2+ yrs of German at Stanford (late 50s), due to a major in geochemistry. Next came an A.M. & Ph.D. from Harvard, then Army Intelligence. My wife and I spend February in Mexico and July on the OR coast. We've touristed in München and Wien, having attended the Hofburg Ball there, where we waltzed to Die Schöne Blaue Donau (Silvestersnacht). I'm currently plodding through "Eine Kurze Geschichte Österreichs", also a very good college biology textbook and a fascinating account of medical history leading up to the 1918 influenza pandemic, which explains why so many 19th century American MDs studied in Germany. You might know that both Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimpt were killed by this virus. I play a 5-string banjo poorly, like to hike in the Rockies and belong to two men's groups, one devoted to economics & related matters (almost anything relates to economics), the other to stockpicking. I have two grandchildren, four adult children, two adult stepchildren. One of my favorite sayings: "Always do the right thing. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest." Hope to hear from you. Mit freundlichen Grüssen, Cabobob

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele
