Bob Novell's Nook on the World Wide Web
About Me
Page Last Updated: July 15, 2011
Page was created.

My first name, legally speaking, is Robert but I go by Bob and when someone addresses me as Robert, I always get a vague sense of being in trouble. I guess at least one of my teachers in Elementary School (which we call Grade School) used Robert when she was "correcting" me.

The only person who calls me anything other than Bob is my youngest sister, Pat, she has, and still does, call me Bobby for as long as I can remember.

As to Pat being my youngest sister - I don't mean she is younger me, she is actually older than me. My only siblings are my three sisters and all of them are older than me.

I was born in the year that vaccine that the first polio vaccine was created. The king of England died during that same year and Elizabeth became the queen. It was also the year that BOAC began the first commercial jet airline service, using the De Havilland Comet 1 which seated 36 people.

That is more than enough information for you to find out my birth year.

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. I lived from birth to age 13 in north St. Louis city. Then we moved to Moline Acres in north St. Louis county.

I attended Eliot Grade school and Riverview Gardens Junior High and Senior High schools. I graduated on June 6, 1969.

I have always called Elementary school "Grade school" and I guess everyone else around here as also. Perhaps it is a mid western thing but I do know it is a St. Louis thing.

I am married to Sharon, a wonderful person.

We have no children but we have some cats. We do not treat them or think of them as human but they are individuals with their own personalities.

I've been working with computers since 1972 - yes, back when the only computers were "mainframes" and the mini computers produced by DEC, HP, etc.

My last position with a corporation was as Sr. Systems Programmer for one of the largest bank holding companies in Missouri. I was actually the entire Systems Department and as such, I was on 24 hour call. I started carrying a pager in 1976 so that they could reach me if I was not at the office or at home. It was better than missing a call at 9:00 PM and finding out about at 12:00 AM when I got home. With the pager, they could reach me as soon as I was needed and I could get the problem resolved soon enough to at least get a few hours of sleep. Back then, about the only other people who carried pagers were doctors. In the 1980's they became very common and now have been replaced, pretty much, by cell phones.

Well, I'm going to close this, I may come back and add to it at a later date.
