Default Hello From David Tampien

My name is David Tampien. I live in Moses Lake, Washington (state) and I'm married to Cynthia. Between us we have 28 grandchildren and a growing number of great grandchildren. I am a business owner and investor which leaves me time to help out at the local newspaper as a District Manager. This means I work with children and their parents to insure all the customers in my district get a paper every day.

I'm looking forward to reading the threads and postings here. I will also be glad to comment and make posts.

Default Why did I join the forum?

That is a good question, websonalized. My answer is very specific... I was challenged to do it. In learning SEO and marketing on the internet I was given an opportunity to prove weather or not participating in forum activity was a valuable part of it. Not only that but was encouraged to experience the enjoyment in doing it. I was told that it would be a good way to begin interaction with other like minded people who have similar interests.

The great part is that I'm finding it to be true. In fact it's getting kind of addicting. There are so many intelligent, capable people who contribute their ideas and wisdom and I can (as long as I follow the rules) come alongside and participate in the conversation. This is good.

About the family: yes family gatherings are lively and fun with a lot of hugs all around. In fact some of the boys, father and sons, have been over at the coast crabbing. So we are invited to come over tomorrow night for what will be an awesome crab feed! :-)

Hi David, welcome aboard

That is some good advice you were given, posting at forums can be a good way to interact with others also interested in the same thing. Thank you for joining in with us.

Contact me if I can ever help you with anything here.

Hi, David!
I'm right down the street from you, so to speak, in Spokane. I'm a writer and entrepreneur and I welcome you to forum-land.

Thank you sir. I've been a freelance writer for 3 years and am also a published author. Writing is a passion. Currently freelancing and in the initial stages of planning a pediatric occupational therapy business with my wife. There's a real need for an alternate therapy for children with autism/SPD that no one is currently doing- just have to finance it... (like every other person looking to start a new project!)
