About SDuheme
Joined April 2016
My name is Stephen [Steve] and I arrived on the scene in the summer of 1941.. My boyhood and early adult home was on a hill farm in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. I loved my country surroundings. Cared for farm animals and made pets of them from an early age. A floor model Zenith radio equipped with multiple bands and a speed dial was our entertainment is those times. A black and white TV arrived a few years later.

As a young man I completed a forestry program. Next was a stint in the military overseas in West Germany. Then my new bride and I established a wholesale/retail Christmas tree farming operation. We spent nearly 30 years with the business. One of our trees was shipped to Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines. Another one went to Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba.

After phasing out of Christmas trees our family spent four years living in the mountains of Eastern Venezuela. We were affiliated to some degree with a missionary entity there. The region is noted as one of the prime coffee growing areas of the Americas. And can you believe it? I do not drink coffee!

We returned to the U. S. just about one month after the attack on the World Trade Center took place. In fact, as we flew north toward JFK International Airport the wreckage of the Twin Towers could easily be spotted from our vantage point. A column of smoke spiraled up into the atmosphere. We actually flew through it for a few seconds. What an eerie sensation. An experience never to be forgotten.

Presently we're employed part time. In my case I'm looking for something more stimulating to do. The icing on the cake would be an occupation with the potential for being more financially rewarding. WA caught my eye a few days ago and I've been sitting on the fence as what to do. Do I join or not? Writing is not natural for this country boy and I have unique spelling traits to boot. Gary Horton's commentary about WA and its attributes convinced me to get off the fence and actually join. Looking forward to learning from all of you at WA.

The most important thing is to get started and stay with it. Carve out 15--20 hours in your schedule and use that time every week to advance your training.

The best and welcome to WA.

So awesome Stephen, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.
