My name is Patrick DeBoard. I'm a retired home repair and remodeling contractor.
I live in upstate New York, in Adirondack Park. I'm surrounded by mountains and forests.
My interests are writing fiction, the environment, hiking/orienteering, observing animals and birds.
I have been published writing non-fiction, describing construction projects and companies for the public.
I have heart disease, and have about 50% heart function. However, I am following Dr. Dean Ornish's Program to Reverse Heart Disease, and it is helping. I walk 6 days a week, eat low-fat vegetarian diet, practice yoga to relieve stress, and tell everyone about my disease, for general support and encouragement.
I'm available to help with gNewSense, but will wait until i'm more familiar with the software myself before pestering people about wanting to help.
