About Jwb...

I love to read. My hobbies also include stamp collecting, sports, history and travel. My favorite sports are NFL football, baseball and hockey. I also love open wheel racing (Indy car racing and Formula 1 racing). My favorite Formula 1 driver of all time is Niki Lauda. I have lived in Texas for 32 years, but was born and raised in Louisiana. I am also a life long stamp collector so feel free to put some great stamps of your country on that postcard that you send as I always enjoy seeing stamps from other nations.

I have a college degree and two graduate degrees and work in the mental health field. I have a wife and daughter and also enjoying going on cruise ships for vacation. I also LOVE going to Disney World and Disney Land. I have three spoiled house cats (sadly, my 21 year old tabby passed away recently) and I am an avid reader especially mystery/thriller books and books about military history. My favorite writers/authors are Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Daniel Silva and Michael Connelly.

I love great TV and my favorite series include: "The Office (the first 5 seasons) "Stranger Things" on Netflix, What we do in the Shadows (Hulu series), Formula 1: Drive to Survive, Breaking Bad, Ozark, The Man in the High Castle, Game of Thrones, What We Do in the Shadows (HULU), Bosch (Amazon Prime), and good classic TV shows. I'm a big NETFLIX fan, HULU fan and Amazon Prime fan as well so "Black Mirror" and "Grand Prix Driver" and "Bosch" are just a few of the many shows I watch on those channels as well. I just finished Season two of "The Boys" on Amazon Prime and it is a wild (and fun) series to watch.

My books to recommend:
1. A Boy's Life by Robert McCammon
2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (any book by Ray Bradbury)
3. Any book by Michael Connelly
4. Any book by Daniel Silva
5. 11/22/63 by Stephen King
6. "IT" by Stephen King (scary scary book)

15. The Battle of Berlin by Antony Beevor

Any type of post card is fine with me! I love history, geography and the flags of various nations. I also love classical music. My favorite composers are Jean Sibelius, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Beethoven, Antonin Dvorak and Edvard Grieg. I also, of course, love great rock n roll including the Rolling Stones, Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Joe Bonamassa, Elton John, Billy Joel and David Gray, BB King, Zoe Muth, etc.. just to name a few. Oh, and great country/folk artists such as Lori McKenna, Emmylou Harris, Townes Van Zandt, Sarah Jarosz, Gregory Alan Isakov, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Jim Croce, Willie Nelson and Jim Croce.

Peace. The world needs more peace, more equality and more human rights for all people.
