Fixing my wiki entry

If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

          That is the way it should be.  Some bizare edits have been made.

            For example, I was born in Los Angeles County, but that has been deleted. I did live in Las Vegas, but I graduated High School from Mountain Home, Idaho. I lived four years in Alaska (the longest of any place I lived until I got married).  Not that big of a thing but perplexing.

          More strange is the fact that someone edited my page to make it look like I went to TSR while I was doing my undergraduate work rather than in the summer after my first year of law school.

          I graduated from CSULA in 1979 and started law school in 1979.  Went to TSR in 1980 (where I wrote the Expert Set -- Zeb Cooki did the real editing, *without* computers, and made the Expert Set line up page for page with the prior rules so you could put them in a loose leaf binder and swap out pages if you wanted to -- something a number of people thought would be impossible to do by the deadlines).

          2016 did have have a reprise of City of the Revenant and the Planes of Fire and Ice.  2017 had the City of the Revenant, An OD&D scenario and one other (I ran three for 2017).

           I section hike the Appalachian Trail with the trail name of "d20" and my wife uses "Happy"

         I've tried to fix the wiki page a few times, the bots always revert.
