About me …

Well .. let’s see. This is the part most people hate. Discribe yourself …

The obvious:

  • I am tall – (that means over 6′ 5″)
  • Facial hair – (this should be a hint that I am a guy)
  • Brown hair w/ some grey & Hazel eyes
  • Married w/children
  • I’m 42 – (I guess I will need to update this each year?)

The not so obvious:

  • I run Linux and Mac OS X on my home PCs
  • I have a 95 lb female German Shepherd Dog who still thinks she’s a puppy
  • I like to take photographs
  • I am a Christian
  • I am happy – honestly I am

I’m not much of a self-promotion expert. But I’m trying. I live in the booming county of Warren in the state of Ohio. I go by Lerxst while on-line (as do 100 or so other people). Everyone asks … who or what is a Lerxst. If you are a fan of Rush (the band) then you would recognize the nickname given to Alex Lifeson, by Alex Lifeson. His bandmates often call him by his nickname, “Lerxst”. Lerxst also appears in a subsection of La Villa Strangiato (an instrumental based on images of Lifeson’s famously vivid nightmares) from Hemispheres, titled “A Lerxst in Wonderland.” The section features lengthy tremolo guitar soloing. The other band members have nicknames as well Geddy is Dirk and Neil is Pratt (or sometimes called The Professor). I’ve been a Rush fan since … like 1977/78? I guess that’s when I first heard them. They had a song called “Closer to the Heart” on their Farewell to Kings album. I bought the 45 and wore it out. My first concert was a Rush concert. Sept 1, 2007 was my last concert seeing them and D2’s first concert ever! We are going to see them again this June 30th as well. So now you know a little more about me … but I’ll add more later.

  1. Thanks for visit. (I detox with 2 tbsps cider vinegar to 2 quarts filtered water drunk all day. More if needed. Plus my usual spirulina tablets.) There are many detox ways I use the KISS system and do it one day here and there.

    Teenage girls always scream especially when at pop concerts. I did and never knew why as I hate the sound.

    Shadow looks wonderful. Amazed she didn’t get over excited 🙂

    I stumbled upon your blog while doing some surfing. I’ve been typing in “Far Hills” and “John Jackson” just to see if there is any web chatter out there. I was led to a post you made at the X3blog which led me to your page.

    I’m also a member at FHCC and I’ve been struggling with all of this for months. I just wanted to say I’m glad you stuck around, and you sound like the type of concerned, involved person we need at FHCC more than ever.

    I’m with you…while I’m sad about what’s happened…I’m glad our church is no longer hostage.>BR>
