As with many computer geeks (professionals) my fascination with bugs has led me to beekeeping, gardening in general, and development of a community garden near my Georgia home. I also lived in Honduras – amazing insects and unimaginable gardens – and Senegal, West Africa where I became proficient in Wolof and a connoisseur of ceebu jen.
