My name is Ralph Koppel
I have created this blog to share my thoughts on politics, philosophy, and leading a fulfilling life.
If you are first viewing this blog, I strongly recommend that you view my guide page and start with my introductory posts and my posts on philosophy They will give you an idea of what I am trying to do that will put future posts in the proper perspective. They are fairly short and won’t take long to read.
I received my B.S. in Accounting from the University of Arizona. I started my career as a CPA but soon decided that I liked computers much more than I liked accounting. I went to night school for four years to receive my M.S. in Management Information Systems. I have been working in computers for over thirty years now.
I have been the minority owner in two businesses that were sold. I currently work for the company that bought my last business. I work from home which I love.
I am very involved in the stock market and investing. I am currently studying Chinese. A few years ago I earned a black belt in Tae Kwon Doh. I also enjoy juggling and volleyball. I love to dance. My favorite type of dancing is contra dancing but I also enjoy square dancing and ballroom dancing.
I have been married for over thirty years and have two adult children.
