I retired in 2008 and so I have more time now to devote to several of my interests The blog here is mainly for my interests in current events and genealogy. I also like to review books and may have the occasional rant on other subjects.

Briefly I worked as a scientist and data analyst/computer programmer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you want to read about my professional background that is in my LinkedIn profile.

Being retired is great because I can pick and choose what I want to do and when I do it. I think volunteering is a big part of that. For example, I have volunteered my time as part of a team to help our township evaluated an aspect of their computer system. And then again when they wanted to re-do their website.

I also serve as webmaster for other sites. I live in Oakmont Village (Hershey’s Mill West Chester, PA) and am a member of Chapter 377, NARFE (National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association) so I take care of these 2 on a volunteer basis. I also volunteer as part of a team that has built and maintained the Hershey’s Mill website.

I am now confident enough of my abilities that I will develop, maintain, or just help others. Please contact me for details.

    I am trying to find a John Reedy, who is the son of Robert E. Reedy, and Lauretta O’Brien. Robert E. Reedy’s father was Daniel Reedy Jr., whose father was Daniel Reedy b. 1805 (Co. Kerry, Ireland)d 1875 Jersey county IL.
    I am related to Lauretta O’Brien and would like to contact John Reedy, to exchange information on our geneology. John left some information on blogs, but I have not been able to email him, maybe he changed his email address.
