Below is a introduction and in the minor research categories to the right is a compilation of comments in the midst of interesting treads that can be viewed through the link backs, by myself and others. With a sprinkling of humor, personal insights into others, pearls of wisdom from / for others, and some old quotes that still work, as they happen(ed) chronologically.
Posts of the “In other online forums” added so you won’t have to spend as much time in Google so see who I am. Hope this helps…..

Man on the street for the most part, got draft notice for military service so I enlisted in USAF 1967. Trained for communications equipment repairman, went to Spain for duty as a microwave and Tropo Scatter maintenance tech. Most of the traffic on the 46L system was the weather data needed for nuclear retaliation consideration. Spent 25 months on a mountain top in the Balearic Islands, my off time I spent in Palma, conversing with tourists and members of several national Navies. Got to know well the personalities of Europeans, and international stances on value systems, expanded my prospective as a “kid from Kansas.”
Spent the first year out of the service back packing and hitch hiking around the USA, first job installing X-ray equipment in VA Hospitals, then moved to office equipment of several types. Changed to in hospital biomedical equipment tech, for 5 years then industrial medical equipment overhaul facility for another 2 years, then got recruited to join the Tool and Die prototype shop, for another 3 years while I put my 2nd wife through medical school. When she graduated (1982) as an M.D. Psychiatrist we moved back to her home town, where I worked in her practice as her complete office staff, receptionist, manager/accountant, insurance filer, and assisted with group and martial therapy, for 9 years, until her death.
Went to work as a machinist again with the local coal power plant parts manufacturing firm, raised the three kids by myself, until I retired June of 2008.
When in Kansas City (1978-1982) I developed an interest in reading the synopsis of research in the Journal of Geophysical Research, at the local research Library, and was starting to develop a driving interest in trying to figure out the logical puzzle that is weather forecasting. (So far the most interesting logic puzzle I have come across) read the research synopsis of articles from about 1955 on to 1982, copied whole articles of ones I found interesting, before I left town for central Kansas.
Working with the local NWS offices in both KC and Concordia Kansas, I set out to sort weather data by cyclic patterns as had been done for lunar phases with out good results, but by lunar declination instead. I have over the years found that the astronomical interactions of the sun/earth/moon system, are the effects that are driving the Rossby wave patterns.
I would like to be able to present the whole picture of how the long term cyclic patterns of the orbital interactions of the entire solar system, is modulating the weather and climate to produce almost all of the weather patterns that we see. I am still working at solving the interacting relationships between the variations in the solar wind electromagnetic couplings that result from the long term interactions of the solar system with the rest of the Galaxy, to extrapolate into climate prediction.
I have found inner planet cyclic periodicities that when coupled with the Lunar declinational tides in the atmosphere can be used as a long term weather forecast, with punctuation by outer planet / Earth heliocentric conjunctions driving the most severe episodes of extreme global weather.
Like the heat waves in Moscow, the floods in Pakistan, monsoons in India and Bangladesh, and the timing of hurricanes globally.
