Establishing this web site is a great idea.

School story:

I was a flute player in the band and a basketball player. The two did not mix. The basketball players teased me mercilessly until I decided to quit the band. Their favorite retort was, "Hoadley and his sk#& flute." Bob Barns, the band leader, was pis#%*. This turned out to be a good move. Basketball was a lot more profitable than flute playing. By the way, I played the flute, because it was the only instrument that the family owned and money was short.

Favorite Broughton class:

Algebra II - I still use algebra in my daily life - even at 77 years old.

Favorite Broughton event:

Basketball games.

Many hometowns or mostly Raleigh?

Berkeley, CA. Holmdel, NJ. Morehead City, NC. Sonoma, CA. The last two tied for favorite.

Grandchildren:

6 - when you count adopted and sperm bank Grandchildren.

Great grandchildren:

None

Most beloved pet:

Nino, the Portuguese Water Dog - lives with us now and is 8 years old.

Last August 4th, on her 56th birthday, my daughter Kristen got married. Here we are dancing at the wedding. I declare, Kristen is almost as good looking as her Dad. Others have tagged this photo as the “Beauty and the Beast.”

My wife, Julie Conger, has been showing and breeding champion Portuguese Water Dogs for 15 Years. After three unsuccessful attempts in years past, her emerging super-star stud dog, Bernie, just won Best of Breed at the Westminster Dog Show. And in the Working Group competition, Bernie made the cut (top 8 out of 30 – all Best of Breeds). Attached is a photo of Bernie. That is one handsome dog.

Hi Johanna, Did you survive your 79th birthday unscathed? I hope so. On my 79th birthday I noticed a disturbing phenomenon - another body part fell victim to the second law of thermodynamic - entropy always increases. This year my right knee went bad.

I played basketball at NC State for 4 years, but my career was somewhat disappointing. In High School I was All State, so I thought that I was hot shit - a dillusion. On our freshman team at NC State there were 14 guys on full scholarship. I was a starter but just barely. During my varsity career I started about one third of the time. However, there was one very bright spot. During my Sophomore year I was a second stringer on a very good team. After beating Cincinnati with Oscar Robertson we were rated the number one team in the country. We ended up #4. I would always claim that the first string was so good because they had to play against us in practice.

After reading Billy Dunlap's 60th Reunion greetings I realized how i lost the Student Council Sargent at Arms election in 1956. John Jivatode colluded with the Russians to steal the election. I demand that John be retroactively impeached. What do you think?

Hello NBHS Class of 1957, How did your 60th reunion go? What was the most memorable event at the reunion?

I swear that this will be my last posted video. Since I will not be at the NBHS1957 60th reunion, I decided to attend digitally with the attached video. It is a bit corny, but hey - I am not an actor, nor a comedian, nor a videographer.

After the space shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986 the Roger's Commission issued a comprehensive report. One of their recommendations was for the National Research Council to study the NASA risk management program. I was on the study commission. As part of my work we developed a statistical model of the o-ring failure mode. I attach a video of me giving a speech to top executives on this subject.

From 1987 to 2007 I owned a beach house on the Northern shore of Bogue Sound near Morehead City, NC. This video shows me sitting on the patio of the beach house, talking trash to the camera, in 1991.

For the last year and a half I have been writing a memoire. It is 95% complete. To see this memoire go to the URL: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/b72k7wgeborsz6n/UzwU_i3Rpl . This takes you to a page called "Bruce Hoadley's Media Gallery." Then open the folder "Bruce's Memoire." Then open the folder "Memoire Chapters." Chapters 2* and 9 have stories about High School.

This is the label for the wine made from the grapes in our vineyard. It shows the view from our house in Sonoma, CA. The vineyard is in the foreground. The floating dog is our original grand champion Portuguese Water Dog called Joaquin The Dog.
