I started on Trip Advisor (bad site) and changed to TravBuddy that was much better; bad luck when TB closed.
I was not a chemist, but a chemical hazard specialist. I retired from the State of Texas facility in Galveston to 100% disability in 2005. Then I moved back to my home area in East Texas.
I live on the small Walters Tree Farm outside of Nacogdoches, Texas USA. I am retired to be a simple farmer and traveler. Retirement is a tough job, bur somebody has to do it (LOL).
