This is a very good
question... something I will attempt to answer here. Unlike
Life, The Universe, and
Everything, I cannot

So, I am going to attempt this a unique way; I am a product of my environment --
so seeing how I grew up will reveal a lot about me :-)
name is Glen Anthony
Graham. Yes, my initials
are "GAG"- my parents once had a sense of humor! For some reason, they decided

Heaven forbid... if I am in a goofy mood and find myself trying to name a son, I
may choose something crazy like "Samuel Lawrence Ulysses Graham" - SLUG!
The Early Years...
I was born March 22nd, 1969 - a chilly afternoon in Lawrenceville, Illinois. I am the youngest of 5: Carl is 33 and a lawyer in the JAG corps. Ralph is 38 and writes software to launch rockets... does that make him a Rocket Scientist? :-) Crystal is 40 and does computer training. Ron is 47 and is setting up a travel service, specializing in "off the beaten track".
I'm half Norwegian, and 1/4 Scottish and Irish.
We moved to Litchfield,
Michigan, when I was quite young, and then onto Evanston, Illinois (outside
Chicago) when I was 5. It was here I started school- Kindergarten and the first
2 weeks of 1st grade when our family was transferred to Egypt...
