About me

I was born in Augsburg, Germany on June 25, 1948, the only child of Sam
and Clara Wasserstrum, who lost virtually their entire families in the
holocaust. My parents came to the United States in 1949 and settled in
New York, where my father was fortunate enough to obtain an excellent
job opportunity, working for a leather bag manufacturer.

In the
early 1950's, my mother's only sister, Esther, and her husband, Solomon,
bought a chicken farm in Vineland. My father, believing that my mother
certainly wanted to be as close to Esther as possible, decided to leave
New York. Knowing how much my mother loved surprises, my father (knowing
nothing about chickens) decided to buy a chicken farm in Vineland.
Imagine my mother's surprise when my father told her that the family
would be leaving the big city, where they had made so many friends, for
the opportunity to work with lovely fowl, in modern 50's style chicken
coops, where the manure smelled like perfume. Actually, at this point I
believe my father really thought that the chickens would be doing all of
the work.

Vineland welcomed our family in 1953, and I received a
terrific education, graduating second in my high school class in 1966. I
had to give the salutatorian speech in front of about 2000 people, and
although I was scared to death, I pulled it off, pretty much flawlessly,
and even surprised myself at how well it went.
