I like "real" people, not pretentious ones (you know who you are). I enjoy college sports, good movies, good music, golfing, good books, the America's Cup of all things, the Flying Tigers and accounts of bravery like the Alamo and the 300. My all time favorite movie is Patton, followed closely by the Magnificent Seven (perhaps it’s a tie). So coming from Maine, it is the simple things that give me pleasure.

I go to church every Sunday, which is like going to the gas station once a week and really, really filling up.

Out of Protest


She was thirty-one and I was seventeen
I knew nothing about love, she knew everything
I sat beside her on the front porch swing
And wondered what the coming night would bring

The sun closed her eyes
As it climbed in the skies
And started to swelter
The sweat trickled down
The front of her gown
I thought it would melt her

She threw back her hair
Like I wasn’t there
She sipped on a Julep
Her shoulders were bare
And I tried not to stare
As I looked at her two lips

Then she looked at me, I heard her softly say
“I know you’re young, you don’t know what to do or say
But stay with me until the sun has gone away…
And I will chase that boy in you away”

Pussy Galore: My name is Pussy Galore.

“If someone were to ask me for a short cut to sensuality, I would suggest he go shopping for a used 427 Shelby-Cobra. But it is only fair to warn you that of the 300 guys who switched to them in 1966, only two went back to women.”
Time to leave


"get up Neil, get up"- it's time to leave

Greatness has a name


and that name is Jim Clark

Clark was killed in a Formula Two racing accident in 1968 in Hockenheim, West Germany. At the time of his death, aged 32, he had won more Grand Prix races (25) and achieved more Grand Prix pole positions (33) than any other driver. In 2009, The Times placed Clark at the top of a list of the greatest-ever Formula One drivers.

I suddenly knew you'd care again
My running around is through
I fly to you, from Russia with love
