Hey there! I'm 43 years old, live in Oklahoma and am a Graphic Designer for a major hospital corporation. I'm married to a lovely wife whose name is Kecia, and have two daughters, Laryn - age 12 and Halie - age 16 who occupy a major portion of my time.
Why the name KuKuAchoo? The Beatles have always fascinated me because they seemed to surpass the NORMAL barrier. They just didn't play rock n' roll, they played songs with creative content...although be-it most of the songs were written in a drug induced state...they still stuck with you..."I Am The Walrus" always fascinated me as a young tyke...cause I didn't understand what the song meant except I always remembered the "KuKuAchoo" at the end--as well as in the Simon and Garfunkel song "Mrs. Robinson".
For me, the 60's and 70's were a time of change and discovery---from the glitzy to the gaudy, it was full of fun and glamour. Disco made it's debut out of which came music groups such as KC and the Sunshine Band and of course, still popular from the 60's, those crazy Monkees wheelin' around on TV in a brass bed singing Last Train To Clarksville.
My education was attained fromSchoolHouse Rock, I mastered survival from watching Gilligans Isle, learned my family values from The Brady Bunch, viewed how history really was from Monty Python's Flying Circus and visualized heroe's of the future watching Ultra Man fighting some Japanese rubber monster.
I hope you enjoy my site as you browse around the different menu's and pages. I always enjoy feedback, and will help all try to find more research into their 60's and 70's mission. Remember that famous saying in the 60's...Drop out, Turn On, and Tune in baby....
