Welcome to my home page. I've set this
up so that you can learn a bit about me. I know that sounds a bit self-serving,
but hey, it's my page. I'm sure yours is the same.
First, in answer to what's
probably your first question, yes, Rod Wood really is my name. I can thank
my parents for that. However, I constantly get called "Ron", "Rob", or
some other variation. It's a bit annoying, but I've gotten used to it.
I'm a native Texan, born
and raised there. As were my parents, and theirs,.... we go back a ways.
I'm proud of my heritage, although worry about the politics there, and
don't think I could ever go back to live there. Most folks find it hard
to believe that I am actually from Texas, since I've never had too much
of an accent, even when I lived there. Being a Texan means I tend to be
hard-headed, but a gentleman.
My birthdate is April 1,
1954. That makes me an Aries, if you were wondering. The advantage of that
birthday is it's easy to remember. But the disadvantage is that I get empty
boxes for presents, or that my birthday gets an Easter theme. It could
be worse, I could have been born on Christmas. Because my former partner
John Ball's birthday was so close to mine, I give a birthday party each
year in memory of him. I request that everyone bring their checkbooks to
contribute to an AIDS organization. I don't need birthday presents, and
there's loads of people who need help much more than me.
I am an engineer by trade,
and by attitude. That means that I not only make money at it, it's a major
part of my life. I think things through, weighing the pros and cons, before
taking most actions. It also means an assortment of bizarre time-, energy-,
effort-, and money-saving gadgets and "improvements" around the house.
Friends think I'm only slightly eccentric - but only after they really
get to know me.
I'm been involved in fundraising
for Food for Thought (the Sonoma County AIDS Food Bank) since my first
summer in Guerneville, 1991. They help women and men who are affected by
AIDS. I've produced events in local bars and at home to raise thousands
of dollars over the years. And each year I march with them in the Santa
Rosa and San Francisco Pride Parades. More recently, I've also spent time
to help the new AIDS Emergency Fund in Sonoma County.
A message of Safety
is what I hope to spread during my Drummer year. We need to bring back
the concept of "Safe, Sane and Consentual Sex" to the Community.
And to make safety part of our everyday lives so that none of us dies needlessly.
Interesting places to go on the web...
