#1 - held my first cue when I was about 7 years old (1960)
#2 - single: "no" female: "yes" available: "not at the moment"
#3 - Never played it (I'm not a player. Not a groupie, either. just sayin)
#4 - My brother, Mark, was my biggest influence. He taught me how to play. I grew up with a big table in my house. For a little girl, I was actually good. I played from about the ages of 7-9. Never really played again after that.
#5 - Jimmy Reid, of course
#6 - It doesn't mean anything. It's my first name.
#7 - West Palm Beach, Florida
#8 - therapy shopping, reading, tennnis, swimming,walking, enjoying the outdoors. I just recently started taking photographs of palm tree. Sounds lame, but I love palm trees and they make for some beautiful photographs.
I'm a public school teacher, but have also dabbled in real estate investing. I'm also a patron of the arts and a supporter of worthwhile causes. I'm interested in human behavior, and I really enjoy interacting with fun, intelligent, cool people like the ones here on this forum.

Firstly, all this info is available in detail on the Beard's Interview here on 1pk.org.
To reiterate, 69 yrs, 1954, single male looking for an illiterate, runaway, hillbilly dolly. Playing 1 pkt. since 1961. Playing well since 1970. Gene Skinner was my main mentor. Favorite, Harold Worst, then many others. The Beard was a nickname given to me by Sharky from Philly at the Congress Bowl in Miami in about 1966. Im in an area that used to be a kill zone for road players, but is now peopled with nits, just like the rest of the country, and this new breed.
