Biography of Richard McClellan
I was born in the USA and served in the U.S. Army. I have traveled the world including Japan, Korea, Portugal, Italy, Canada as well as most of the lower 48 United States and Alaska. My favorite place is the Azores Islands in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
My hobbies include poetry, genealogy, crocheting, and knitting. My interests are motorsport, baseball, football (not soccer) , and basketball. I used to pass time playing billiards,8-ball and 9-ball, but due to health had to give it up playing competitively. On education, I graduated from college with a Bachelor's Degree in Electronics.
In 2004, via my employer, I filed a patent called Container Inventory Management & VMI System Enhancements [ADM File Ref. CRP.5.US00; K&L File Ref.040387], by Kirkpatrick & Lockhart LLP.
I hope you can find the time to enjoy some of the same things as me. Poetry is a nice way to clear the mind while exploring new places within their soul!

My star, so bright to me,
keep shining, keep shining,
shine your light on me,
for I have lost my way,
You are the warmth of the sun,
the life-giving rain,
without my shining star,
I have lost my way,
