odd picture of me
Howdy. My name is Ken Hinds.

This is one of my college yearbook pictures. I went to Rice University, and they let us submit whatever picture we wanted for the yearbook. There were always lots of interesting shots.

Here is a later picture of me, attempting Ghanaian tribal dances at the demonstration during Diversity Day at work.

I live in beautiful San Diego, California, USA.
I'm a retired computer programmer. Now I do volunteer work tutoring math at Teddy Roosevelt Middle School and READ San Diego. Here is a picture of me at school.


I have been working on my genealogy for a while now, and have found a bunch of my ancestors and distant cousins.


I'm inordinately fond of a little puzzle called pentominoes. pentomino solution


Doesn't everybody have a page full of links?


Check out my page with what I consider the 10 Best Albums of Various Years.


I drive a Mini Cooper S convertible, and also an MG Midget that I bought brand new. I've driven it for more than a light-second now, and had it restored a few years ago. I really like to take it when I go camping in the National Parks. There's nothing like having the top down while going through Yosemite or Arches or Yellowstone or

my car at Valley of Fire
Valley of Fire State Park.


Quote of the month:

We have abundant reason to rejoice, that, in this land, the light of
truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and
superstition, and that every person may here worship God according
to the dictates of his own heart. In this enlightened age, and in
this land of equal liberty, it is our boast, that a man's religious
tenets will not forfeit the protection of the laws, nor deprive him
of the right of attaining and holding the highest offices that are
known in the United States.
-George Washington, 1st US president
