End Times 1981-08/05/2020

The Coyote Guide has been read over 300,000 times. Reading it sent 3 families to live in the exact same location as I and my family did for 5 years. It started as an experiment. My buddy, now past away, helped in a big way. His name was John Shuttleworth and he was the brains behind Mother Earth News. I keep good company:-) Now...much in the electronic book is long gone, but the biggest parts, including the dozens of video taken in the 1980's are still quite valuable. I am not a survivalist. I just survive. These days there are lots of survivalists out there and they have championed my works. You can't go wrong with FREE.

Since I am related to many  of our forefathers back to the early 1600's my mother wanted something to give her the proof that she needed. I spent 2 solid years working on my family genealogy. We use the 3 proof method and from signers of the Declaration back to the Constitution we have grandfathers and cousins. I do qualify to be a Son of the American Revolution and Sons of the Civil War however I don't have enough hours in my day to do too many things. Have fun with the genealogy.

Over a period of 1966-68, my wife and I were computer programmers. I took computing in 1965-6 at the behest of my father, who working for DARPA, helped create this internet. Our very first system made 35,000 dollars in 1981, essentially making me the first publicly sold program, which allowed computers to talk. Along with programming I managed to become the Sun Newspapers lead photographer. Jane ran the dark room. Additionally we ran an apartment building of 27 suites in East Cleveland Ohio, Mayfield near Coventry. This is what was called a hippie neighborhood on weekends. As if there were spare time, we opened a taco restaurant In Cleveland Heights. Before all the above, my wife and I were a folk singing legends at La Cave, opening for what were to become big tickets items.
