Those of you who have visited this website in the past 20 years will remember it as the SYMBIOS pages. SYMBIOS was the name of our publishing and environmental consulting business, titled that because of my belief that people and things work better when they work together - in effect, symbiotically. Except for book sales and occasional publishing, I'm retired now. But you'll still find sections of this website devoted to my strongest interests and favorite pursuits. You'll find my "North Country Journal," about life at the end of the road in northern New Hampshire. There's a large section on my favorite bird, the California condor. A new section, "Is This Land My Land?" tries to make some sense out of the controversies surrounding government land ownership in the United States. There are pages on politics and religion (hard to separate, these days), wildlife and conservation, public participation in government processes, and the problems of small towns in America. The "Eloquence" pages are my writing-for-fun area, a hodgepodge of whatever catches my fancy at various moments. I've also reloaded my web sections on U. S. genealogy, Maritime Canada genealogy, and North American overland travel. I had hoped to update some of these pages but haven't been able to get around to it, so here they are as formerly presented.
To get to any of the main sections, click on one of the topics listed at the bottom of this page.
Of course, we still sell books. I'd be very pleased if you'd buy one or two. There are some good ones, and you'll find my prices competitive. Sales help me maintain the website without all those ugly and annoying commercials, too. But whether or not you're in a buying mood, please feel free to browse the site; I think you'll find something that will interest you. And please, don't hesitate to contact me about anything you find interesting anywhere on the site.
