*City/State where you live*
Memphis, Tennessee

*Current place of employment*
Dawson's Printing, Inc.

*Job Title*
Electronic Prepress Technician

*Hometown City/State*
Memphis, Tennessee

*Favorite Musician/Band*
Used to listen a lot to all types of music, but mostly listen to WCRV
640 AM Christian talk radio nowadays. That's not to say I don't still
like to listen to some oldies now and then, but I just really don't
like much of the music coming out these days.

*Favorite activity outside of work*
Watching movies and favorite TV shows and relaxing my brain.

*Store you would max your credit card at*
Although I have pretty much stopped using my credit card, if someone
else paid the bill, I'd max it out at the Apple Store.

*Something you must do or accomplish before you die*
Don't really have that much ambition. I've done about all I want to
do. Can't really think of anything right now.

*Other occupation you would like to try*
I would like to go back to being an artist. I haven't done any artwork
in probably half my life, but for the first half of life I loved
drawing and by age fifteen I really could draw well, and even did a
first painting that I thought turned out well. I just figure I
couldn't make consistent money at it so I haven't done anything about
it since.
Nowadays, although I'm not mechanically-inclined like my dad is, I'm
interested in alternative energy and would love to be able to build my
own generator for my house and hydrogen-on-demand capability and put
it into my car. If I had that type of knowledge, I'd be able to make
money retro-fitting other people's cars and homes, or dead because I
knew too much.

*First Car*
That's hard to say. My dad bought, fixed, and sold a few cars to build
up money to get a car for me to drive as my first car. A Toyota
Corolla that I wrecked the first day out of school on summer break in
the 11th grade. Hit some trees (the third or fourth one stopped me).
Hit a DO NOT ENTER sign (that I had to pay for), jumped over a street,
over a lady's car, over a stop sign, and when I came out of the wreck
with my buddy, she said "You shouldn't be alive!". Well, my dad tied
the car's "A" frame between a tree and his truck and straightened the
"A" frame back out, and from then on I called that Corolla "Toyota
SR5-747" because I flew in that car, the radio was still playing after
the wreck, and I got to drive that tank for some more years after
that. Rugged piece of machinery.

*Personal Quote*
I used to have one: Life's not hard. It's not accepting the facts of
life that make it hard.
But that was before I grew up and saw that life was hard no matter if
you accept things as they are or not. Of course, accepting the facts
does make it easier.

*Favorite Movie*
1. The Gospel of John
2. The Ultimate Gift
3. The Notebook

*Family/Children?*
Married to my wife Dawn for the last 6.5 years. Been together for 11.5 years.

*Favorite Vacation spot*
Haven't been yet, but Amsterdam or Jamaica. I have been to Florida
multiple times and also been to the Bahamas. Great relaxing time.

Thanks Don!

Sustainable Printing Goes Far Beyond Using FSC Certified or Recycled Paper
This informative paper on deinking: demand, principles, problems and solutions also explains why printing technologies are not all equally compatible with paper recycling systems; and why just a small fraction of printed material in the paper can cause difficulties.
