Bill Waterson captured the true spirit of my childhood when he created Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin and I grew up with a wonderful imagination, and a very mischievous nature. We got into all sorts of trouble exploring our childhood. The secret they say to staying young is to have a childlike spirit, I like to think I still have a bit of Calvin left in me. I hope I'll never out grow him.
I started blogging after talking to my sweetie about journaling. Cassie told me that it was a great way to express yourself, learn more about yourself and develop some writing skills. I also enjoyed reading other peoples blogs. I searched around for different software to be able to easily publish The Man's Side of it!. I finally decided to try Movable Type. I love this program, it is easy to modify, publish and edit weblogs. I have two other blogs, Tinnocking and A View Through the Lens I also created a blog for Cassie and another one for family and friends.
I also host a recipe blog called Favorite Recipes
People say I spend way too much time in front of my computers and in my workshop. I have only one excuse, too much time on my hands after becoming permanently disabled from a workplace injury. I am a Union Sheet Metal Worker by trade and a skilled CAD Draftsman, over the years I have worked in many different trades.
I have a wonderful wife, four daughters and a son, five grand kids and a wonderful gaggle of brothers, a sister, nieces, nephews, mom and friends. I live in Browns Mills, NJ
My hobbies include Computers, woodworking, my Weblogs, Reading, Music, Graphic arts, Photography, Do-it-yourself, Cooking, Scale Modeling, collecting small animated toys and Knick-Knacks and much too many to continue to list.
