Beer, Wine and Database Programming. What could be better? I'm an recently-retired engineer who was involved in computer systems for a major oil company (although I'm now enrolled in a two-year Brewmaster program!). Through work, I got very involved in database programming, both mainframe and PC. I wrote the monthly Access Answers column for Pinnacle Publication's Smart Access for almost 3 years until the magazine was bought out and stopped publishing new material, and was a regular contributor to Advisor Media's Advisor Guide to Microsoft Access. I'm the co-author of Access Solutions: Tips, Tricks, and Secrets from Microsoft Access MVPs (with Arvin Meyer), and have also been technical editor for a number of different books.
