Summary (if you haven't read enough of my posts this will get you up to speed)

  • I'm usually a bit direct, fact oriented, and pretty much to the point in my forum responses.  I have to work at being warm and fuzzy so it is not an oft occurring trait here.  I do like being helpful so that helps soften me a bit I guess. 
  • I have a pretty good background with building and fixing most things so I fall into handyman mode most of the time, though I am often seen cleaning bathrooms and sweeping duck poop off the dock.
  • DW and I used to run a B&B (3 rooms) that was seasonal while both maintaining our day jobs. (it was her idea)
  • I have an interest in old tools and woodworking. The less electricity the better.
  • As a former Physics teacher I am often prone to educational ramblings  Eye-wink
  • As the owner of this site I try to create a place for innkeepers to put their feet up and share with others.  Fortunately this site is home to many great and spirited people who give the site its true value.
