    Ex US Naval Officer and Data Communications Manager for AT&T, I am now retired. Twice married (That helps explain all the kids.) Hers, Mine Ours, Adopted, and when the money to make the lawyers rich ran low, we started taking in waifs and foster kids.

    I found raising children to be the most rewarding thing that I did in life, so I raised a bunch. Learned how to be a youth sports coach and referee and official driver to all the kids sports games. I became a story teller and from those stories wrote a few books. One of them has been a best selling Novel on Amazon Mobi Pocket (E-books) for two years now.

    Mobipocket - Ebooks written by JOE NEUBARTH. Read them on your PC, Palm, Windows mobile, Symbian, Blackberry, or PocketPC.

    I am not a great writer, having taken no English courses in college. I just tried to write the story down as I remembered it, and it sells in spite of my lack of formal training. That surprized the heck out of me.

    Wow that's a big carbon footprint. Is there an ozone hole over your house?

    I do not expect to be reading much from Joe, folks.

    I could be wrong, of course, and if I am please accept my apologies, but it looks to me like Joe is a very good self publicist.

    Could be, but let's not make judgements before we know for sure. I had the same feeling myself.

    Welcome. 30 kids, I'm not sure if you have my respect or my sympathy..:lol:

    You must have a big heart.

    As for your books selling, the author of "Gone With the Wind" didn't have any formal training either, and there were a lot of mistakes in her book, but look at it today.

    I imagine you have a lot to say, what with the experience with 30 kids and all.

    Do any of your kids have special needs?

    Hope you enjoy it here.

    Sheila
