=================================
From 2001:

I'm married (to Ronni Baker, Sharon High Class of 1966) with two wonderful daughters.  My oldest daughter is going to Grad School at Bridgewater State, and my youngest daughter is a freshman at Emerson College in Boston. 

We've been living in Nashua, NH for the last 22 years.  It's hard to believe, but that's longer than we lived in Sharon. 

And (I hate to begin a sentence with a preposition) speaking of Sharon, my mother is still living in the same house so we get to see the old stomping grounds quite a bit.  I did see Linda Finer not too, too long ago, and I see Carol Seward every now and then.  Carol's my brother's sister-in-law.  Other than them, I hardly see a soul who graduated with us.

I've been in the computer business for over 30 years.  I went to work for Digital Equipment Corporation after college.  A few years ago Digital was sold to Compaq and now I work for Compaq.

I've been in this big band at work (the decbigband) for almost 25 years playing the sax and clarinet.  I'm also in a Klezmer band, and we actually have a CD.  It's not on the Top 10 list, but it was great fun putting it together.  We played in DC for 10 days last summer at the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival.  What a hoot that was.

Then there's the real love of my life (musically that is), an oldies R&R band.  We play all the stuff that was popular when we were younger; remember those days....  With all that rambling, if you have nothing better to do at some time check out this web site http://decbigband.com.  On the home page, if you scroll down, there's a picture of the decbigband.  I'm way over on the left with a saxophone hanging out of my mouth.  There are also two more pictures under the photo gallery section (pics 1 & 2), also way over on the left.  I know they're kind of grainy and not too close, but that's how I look the best.

I donít know about you guys, but I find that the older I get, the more nostalgic I get, so let me know how and what you've been doing these last 35 years.
