About Me Spiritual, eccentric, Care about all forms of life. Avoid hypocrites and gossip and love of ease people. Drama queens a no no. People tell me that I am a very calm person, they dont know that I can get angry in a silent manner. That is also not good - it hurts me tremendously to observe suffering. There are certain things in life that I stick with and that is my Principles and Values and Integrity. Sorry, some things are just taboo in my books. Proud to be from the old school. I must admit, I like the word "ASSHOLE". Dont socialize much, have other plenty things to keep myself busy. It is very easy for me to sacrifice luxuries. LOGIC, is my second name and common sense is my third name. You dont need a degree to understand many things in this life, just observe what is going on. Always, before you take action; follow through the consequences of your actions, if the end result is not good, dont do it!. There is one thing that I wish I could ask - why were people put on this earth together with animals?. I miss the good old days when we made our own mayonnaisse, own soap, own sauces. (I think it is coming - the economy is changing in this world) Everything became so instant and artificial.
