"I have no ambition in this world but one ... and that is to be a fireman. The position may in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which a fireman has to do believe his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring; even of supreme sacrifice."--Chief Edward Crocker New York City Fire Department 1899-1911

03 MAY 2008: People have been on me to update this site. Ok, I finally did. Over the next few weeks I am actually going to take time and bring this stuff up to date. So everyone can now get off my back! The big news is that I have returned to Virginia, gotten my state EMT certification, have a great job, and am starting to enjoy life as a military retiree. More news to follow.

Welcome to the home of my many Diversions! Or as they have been called, "DAVE'S COLLECTIBLE NIGHTMARE!" or "NOW TELL ME AGAIN HOW THIS HELPS YOU RELAX?!"

Ok it is news but kind of old news, is that I am now a Volunteer FF/EMT here in the great Commonwealth of Virginia! Yes, I have finally figured out what I want to do when I grow up. My mom is happier than I am about this. Why, I have no idea.


The other big news is that I have discontinued police patch collecting! I am now concentrating on

So please contact me if you'd like to set up a trade. I might be a bit slow to respond but rest assured, I will respond!
