ROBonYEDDA@YAHOOl.com Wisdom comes from Study, Travel & Life experiences! MY YEDDA CONCEPT IS: Good questions deserve good answers; Poor ones deserve a quick/poor answer. Dumb or silly, deserves same ... and the occasional but inevitable Idiots are best just ignored.
About Rob:

 

I work from home, consultant on my time schedule and leaving a lot of time for recreation and relaxation. Yedda is just a digression/break from it from time to time. My work has been in different fields, thus I am well versed in numerous fields TRAVEL: Traveled most of the USA and some out of country; extensively in the East and West Carribian. Love Alaska, New England, Mountains of NC and VT and out west; spent one year traveling 27 states in motor home, plus much more motor home travel, that was one trip. FAMILY: Twice married, now single and not unhappy about that most of the time; I like my freedom and independence and dating.  My children are raised, professionals and self sufficient.  We are close but they do not live in my immediate area, but in same state. I consider duty to child rearing as our most important duty and family life as very important generally. EDUCATION, WORK & EXPERTISE AREA: I have substantial and varied academic and career/business backgrounds. My many and varied interest include: substantial knowlege/experience with:  law, economics, political science and politics, healthcare, psychology, sexuality, sociology and creative writing (fiction and poetry).   HOBBIES & INTERESTS: Reading, writing, travel, canoeing/kyaking and boating/beach activities (and sex) are my main means of relaxation. ENVIRONMENTALIST: ILove the mountains, the woods, the oceans, the lakes and rivers ... change of seasons and snow. I love animals and wild life. I spend part of the year in Florida and part of it in New England (or No. Carolina) and love the snow and the fall colors in the latter. From Florida to Vermont to California and Seattle/Vancouver (and all in between including the Rocky Mountains and parks and all the sites out there) ... from a lot of travel, sight seeing and experiences, I have learned a lot about people and places and I am intellectually curious and "stimulatable" ... so I absorbed a lot of what was to be discerned in my travels. ABOUT WOMEN: I've had my miles of travels in that regard too. "Can't live with em; can't live without them." Traits I like most in women are: sense of humor, open mindedness, intellect, openess and honesty; It's reciprocal, i offer all of that (and much more, of course) ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE: I am very altruistic in many ways and I like helping other people as much as I can and I have helped a lot of people (including strangers) over the years; I don't do it for any recognition, I do it as a humanitarian thing--just because its the right thing to try and lend a helping hand to others when you are able to That is the thing about Yedda I like best--I can try to share my knowledge or talk (post) to people to try and help them and I can do it quietly and anonomusly. I also don't waste much time proof reading, editing or spell checking ... fast typer and just let it go for Yedda and email etc. Just a return on time ratio approach. I am not trying to make connections via Yedda, but put an email address out there, on my profile, so if someone I reply to wants to reach me they can (as I might never see their reply comments on Yedda otherwise).

The harder I tried to figure out where to start, the more confused I became. lol So my husband says,"why don't you go to someplace on the web that answers questions?" I figured it was a long shot, but tried anyway. WELL let me say Rob you are great. You seem to be pretty smart, as well as well traveled. Thank you so much for your help.

Bugsy says:
"Rob.....I read your yedda concept regarding good, poor and stupid questions. I approach Yedda the same as you. When I am stressed out I enjoy answering the stupid questions with stupid answers. I use AOL and used to enjoy the chatrooms but now all of them are full of filth and bad language. I am happily married and liked to go there just to chat. Anyway, I read your biography and it is nice to meet someone who genuinely feels the same way I do about Yedda. Keep on keeping on .....Bugsy"
