Welcome, NYGayBear!

Howdy!

Thanks for checking out my page!  I have all kinds of ideas of wonderful things to share with you about who I am, what I like, what makes me angry, and why its hard for me to kill woodchucks even though they are destructive little bastards.  I love hearing about folks stories and what sorts of things make them tick so feel free to share.  So, rather than me list, or go on ad naseum about what/who I am......just drop me a line and ask a question or two.

Yeah, I'm still trying to get it all figured out so I can make use of it all.  I love it so far.  Good to hear from you.  We just got hit by a "blizzard" the other day, and it stopped the world here.  Now we have a feeling what it's like to live up there.
