To provide an escape from the daily pressures and stress experienced by scores of thousands of office workers, executive and white collar workers, home-makers, as well as laborers in the manufacturing, construction, and service industries.
This web-site does not help those who despise engaging in self-improvement, higher education, philosophical thought, development of the individual potential or the increase in knowledge and understanding for its own sake.

The main theme of this site relates to the development of a selfless attitude towards all others, regardless of race, sex, or religion, a striving to help others when its in our power to help them, learning to exercise our innate responsibilities towards those that are less fortunate than ourselves, and being grateful for those opportunities and blessings that we have received.

I hope that this site will help the viewer to: (1) take his/her mind off the immediate pressures of the job, (2) to feel more relaxed after a brief hiatus at this web-site, and (3) feel less burdened by the daily pressures of the job or environment that seem to bear down on us all.

About The Author:

I have been employed by the U.S. Department of Justice as a CPA and Auditor since 1991. My duties as an Auditor have included audits of Department of Justice Boards, Offices, and Divisions to determine compliance with Government regulations and effective management of resources. My main job now consists of auditing Government contractors to identify overcharges as well as possible fraudulent activities. Prior to becoming an auditor, I was a member of the United States Air Force for a period in excess of 20 years. I served in various states such as Texas, Illinois, Georgia, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, as well as in the RVN and Germany. Upon retirement I was hired by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and worked in both California and Virginia before transferring to the Department of Justice. I have a 13 year-old daughter and a large extended family in the mid-western United States. I was born in Utrecht, The Netherlands and immigrated to the United States in the mid-1950s and now reside near Alexandria, Virginia.
