I have been with the university for 33 years now, originally located in the basement of Goodyear Hall on the Main Street Campus, then at the Interim Campus located at 4250 Ridge Lea Road, Amherst, and then our most recent move to the Amherst Campus which occurred in 1986. My career here started as a keypunch operator (remember those days of punched cards) on first shift and since then have worked all shifts and prefer my third shift. This shift affords me the opportunity to watch my soap operas Port Charles and General Hospital, spend time with my nephew Brandon and attend any classes I desire.
I have taken several courses at UB with no particular degree in mind, although I do have the Millard Fillmore College Certificate of Completion in Programming for Business Applications.
I have taken some courses at Bryant & Stratton Business Institute such as Lotus, Desktop Publishing with PageMaker etc.
Mostly novels by such authors as Danielle Steel, Phyllis Whitney, Victoria Holt, Barbara Taylor Bradford and several others.
I am the contributor for indexing the obituaries for the Buffalo News, Cuba Patriot and the Olean Times Herald for the Obituary Daily Times.
I have just recently discovered that the Buffalo News now has a searchable archive of death notices since January 1997.
PC support consisting of hardware and software upgrades, troubleshooting and training for family occupies a good portion of my leisure time. Troubleshooting a PC in Fort Collins, Colorado sometimes becomes a real challenge.
This hobby started one year while I was vacationing and saw a sign for Lincoln's Birthplace and we needed a break and stopped. Since then, I have been trying to visit as many sites as possible.
