I'm John
Hey look, it's John Rice!
Yup, that's me and this is my web site.  This page is a link to what I was and what I am and what I will be and possibly what I shouldn't be but might be anyway.   It will have pictures of me and machines and people and animals and drawings and even some stuff that I'm afraid to put my lips on.  It will have poems and lyrics and short stories and discussions and maybe a recipe for chunky corn divinity, a Halloween favorite.  I've done lots of music things and artsy things and computer things and electronic things and ate a lot of things and have even been nibbled on a few times myself. So that's about what you can expect to see on this site. To sum it up, one of the first ever responses that I received on the internet was "John, you're an idiot." signed The Worlds Greatest Drummer.  So there you have it.  ( of course the joke is on him, the proper spelling is 'eedeeot' )   Enjoy,  JLR

This page is fairly old but still under construction, basically because I'm a slacker.
