What is there to say. I am 40 years old at this time. I was a flop at junior high wood shop, but because I am a tightwad, I've been slowly accumulating tools to help me remodel my house. Plus I've been watching Norm on New Yankee for some time. One day I found that I have all the tools I need to start doing some simple projects. So I did.

I work as a software engineer in the NW 'burbs of Chicago. Those of you who have small children may have had my software operating on your kids at one point in time.

Peace and shalom to all who read this...
