About Me
I am a 51-year-old guy who *was* totally addicted to the net, especially chatting!
 
But then along came Linda Lee Komes Turner, my wife and the love of my life. We were married on Saturday, August 9, 1997.

I am a program coordinator for NAACLS - the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences in Chicago.

My hobbies used to be photography, tennis and running my own computer BBS. Those kinda fell by the wayside with the advent of the Internet!



My 15-Second Brushes with Fame

Although I'm now at NAACLS, I used to be in the newspaper business as editor of a small-town weekly. (I'm talking years ago, folks, as the pictures you'll see if you click on the 'incredibly bored' link will indicate.)

As a result of that newspaper job, I got to meet a few people I never otherwise would have met, including three future Presidents of the United States (Ford, Carter and Reagan). I've only got a picture of myself with President Ford. I had a picture taken of myself with Jimmy Carter but was developing it myself and a lady at the newspaper office walked into the darkroom as I was loading the film onto a developing tank reel and ruined the entire roll. Sheesh! And I had the opportunity, but no desire, to be photographed with Ronald Reagan.

There were a few celebrities from the entertainment and sporting worlds with whom I got my picture taken, as well. If you're incredibly bored, you can click here to take a look at me with some famous folks.
