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.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Dude, Love the intro…
I was born in Patterson NJ, back when it was really nice to Live in Jersey… My older brother lives in Hillsborough. Beautiful area of Jersey.
Welcome to Lumberjocks. Look forward to seeing some of youe scale modeling. I have interest in 6 scales, G, O, HO, N, Z and the 6th lies somewhere around “it’s too short & wide for this, too long & narrow for that scale”

My Favorite quote “Oh yea, what he said”

-- -- Only God can Create it. We are blessed to see it, live it, and enjoy its beauty.

Have your say...
