Greetings, About John

  • I live in California, not Los Angeles, about 10 miles away from the ocean.
  • I am a single, straight male. I live alone.
  • I have an executive membership at Costco.
  • I was poor all my life – some of my visitors remember when I used to be financially challenged (and happy).
      • I am financially better now, I became a home owner in 2012 – but I am not rich, really.
      • I am worried that my pictures will make you think I am rich, or you may think I am arrogant. But, they are only pictures.
      • Because of my background, my root is humble.  I am still not comfortable talking about my improved financial situation.  But, I am the same guy from 10 years ago.   I enjoy value meals at Wendy’s, I shop at 99 Cents only store, I can sleep on hard wood floor, etc…
  • I am not young.  I work with co-workers 15-20 yrs younger than I am.
  • I have a photography degree. I photographed hundreds of weddings.
    • For my blog, I use a point and shoot camera.
  • I also have a BS degree in Computer.  Currently, I work at a large company as a web developer.
  • I made this website 11 years ago with Drupal.  Then switched to WordPress in April 2018.
  • And finally: If you have airbnb and have some free time to spend with me, please contact me from here.  I would like to experience how people live ordinary, everyday life outside of California. I can help you with chores such as moving furniture, cleaning rain gutter, feeding animals, taking your family pictures, helping you with computers, walking dogs, going to Costco, etc, etc…  I have 30 years left to live if I’m lucky.  I want to share friendship and good memories.

I’m just a normal guy who makes fair amount of mistakes. Please don’t take things personally.  Feel free to correct me when I make mistake.

God bless everyone.
