Happy Healthy Human Life RAMS Project Inner Engineer

I began my life when I was born in Lansing, Michigan, USA on February 9, 1957. Since then my life and career paths have taken many turns as a small boy with parents and family and community members who loved and cared for me, as a church and public school student relatively strong in reading, writing and arithmetic, as a God and Nature lover, as a classical vocal and instrumental music lover, as a classical piano and percussion player, as an electrical equipment control and reliability engineer, and much more. I believe in One God the Trinity (God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit), who is the Creator of the Universe, Heaven and Earth, and everything there, including mankind whom He made in His image male and female.  I have had much experience, both good and not so good, but my strongest gratitude is for the fact that I am alive and well with lessons I need to pass forward to make improvements that can help make the world a safer and better place for other good people. 



I am James Gordon Short, Jr., “Jim,” creating, editing, and maintaining this website.

I began my earthly human life project as a newborn male child when I was born on Saturday, February 9, 1957, in Lansing, Michigan, USA.

On Sunday, September 16, 2018, I found that I am not only still very much alive and reasonably happy and healthy here in San Antonio, Texas, USA, more than 61.6 years or 22,500 days later. 

During this time, I have resided in Savanah, Georgia; Salt Lake City, Utah; Walla Walla, Washington; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Sealy, Texas; and now San Antonio, Texas. 

I have received school education from Salt Lake Junior Academy (grades 1 thru  3 and 7 thru 9)  and Rosalyn Heights Elementary (grades 4 thru 6) and Skyline High School (grades 10 thru 12) before receiving my high school diploma there in Salt Lake City, Utah in June 1975.   

I learned that I had a bicuspid aortic heart valve with a murmer.

I always liked aerospace topics with airplanes, helicopters, kites, gliders, rockets and spaceships and had good dreams about being a pilot.
