Gentlemen,


I discovered the AoM blog well over a year ago and made it a point to pop in regularly. I find the articles informative and/or thought provoking, well written and humorous without being sophomoric or "locker-room". It hadn't occurred to me to look at the forums until I'd found the list of affinity groups contained therein. There are a number of topics of interest and I'm looking forward to digging into them in the coming weeks.

So, by way of introduction, my name is in fact "True". No, it isn't short for something else. It's a family name that has been shared by my Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather and we've no idea what inspired it originally. I grew up in the Bay Area (a bit South of Silicon Valley) and spent 11yrs in the USCG before returning home to care for my aging maternal Grandparents. I am married (2nd) to a spectacular woman whom I dearly love. We have dogs...not kids.

My interests are varied, I enjoy cycling and used to compete prior to a back injury, I'm also an avid canoeist and enjoy getting as far into the Sierra's as I can with a canoe a pack and a bit of good food to enjoy by the fire. My wife and I both love to cook and the 40 extra lbs around my midsection since we married attests to our shared ability. I enjoy fishing and hunting but do too little of both. I am lifelong and zealotic fan of the San Francisco Giants. Politically, I'd describe myself as a cross between anti-federalist, libertarian and conservative and find myself generally disappointed with both major political parties. I maintain a personal blog wherein I write about most of the previous topics based on whichever I happen to be pondering.


I look forward to learning from and about you all.

Cheers,

True

What a wonderful introduction.  Hello, True.  I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.

Hello True,

It never occurred to me to introduce myself; good idea.  Good introduction also; very descriptive.

It's been a loooong time since I've been back on the site. It's amazing the wealth of information you can find here and it's like I'm discovering it all over again.

Fanatasic intro! I'll echo Chuck, I'm pleased to make your acquaintance. Hope you enjoy the community, True! (awesome name by the way)

"Shane-- Wages are what you earn when you are on a clock. Earnings encompass other forms of income, such as rent, interest, and royalties. What does this have to do with this? Are you saying that men generally receive more income in non-wage form?"
