A Little Bit About MyselfI was born on November 17, 1946 in Houma, Terrebonne Parish (County), Louisiana. Christened as Donald Paul Thibodaux. My maternal grandfather was Comeaux, and maternal grandmother was Babin, (I'm probably related to everyone who's last name ends with "aux"). My friends call me Don or "Thibbe" (nickname).
When I was seven years old we moved to Golden Meadow, in LaFourche Parish (45 miles southeast of Houma, 60 miles southwest of New Orleans) one foot above sea level. My backyard and playground was the swamp, where I spent many hours there, learning about nature and life (or death).
I graduated from Golden Meadow High School in 1964, and was enrolled at Nichols State College (now a university) in Thibodaux, Louisiana for one and a half semesters.
I have worked in the seafood industry, and in the offshore oil field industry, since I was 16 years old. On June 20, 1979, I had a offshore oil field accident, that resulted in 8 ruptured discs in my neck and back. I continue to work until April 12, 1982, when I could no longer work, and taken a disability retirement.
With all this free time I learned about computers on my own, and built several (26 now) computers for myself, family, and friends. I also learned how to repair and upgrade computers, and a little Basic programming. I am presently learning web page designing on the Internet using HTML 4.01 code with Notepad (no editor), since October 19, 1998. This is my second web page. I started it on November 1, 1998.
My goal in life is to help anyone who needs help, to the best of my abilities. My next goal is to learn Java Scripting, along with me helping new friends to the computer world, and encourage their talents.
I am now living in Eunice, LA since March 2002, a very nice cajun town.
To my 3 unborn angels, Cathy my first wife who has passed away to heaven.
2 adopted children, Donnie and Kristen,
and Kevin 16 years old.
6 grandchildren, Donnie has a son Kellan who is 2 1/2.
A daughter Emelia who is 7 months old.
Kristen has her sons Dylan who is 12.
Davin who is 11.
Ashton who is 7 1/2.
A daughter Abbie Catherine who is 4 months old.
I love each and everyone of you, with all my heart, more than you
can understand. Wishing all of you the best that life has to offer.
