Thanks for the welcome, I'm glad you enjoyed my blog! I haven't been able to write in it for a while, but I've got a few posts in the works and will start back up soon.

Mr. McKay,

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm quite pleased to have found AoM, not only as a manliness-seeker but also in part as an effect of my job. I live in Japan, where I teach English, and Japanese "manliness" is very similar to the stereotypical American frat-boy machismo, all coarseness and false intimacy. Luckily, true manliness, and gentlemanliness -- if that's a word -- is never out of place. You do fantastic work here, and I'm glad to be involved.

Regards,
Travis

Mr. McKay,

Thank you for asking, I have been getting the daily updates for quite some time and love this site, but have just now signed up for this forum.

Watchmaking was something I decided on long ago when I was sitting in the Engine Room of a Submarine which surprisingly is very noisy and hot. I was trying to think of the most quiet job without just pushing papers around. Fixing watches popped into my head and when we got back into port I looked into schools and at the time there was one in Lancaster, PA. When I got out of the Navy I attended that school and have fell in love with watches. It turns out working in the Power Industry pays so much better so I still do that, but having two skills especially one that you can still manage late into life without breaking your back is a wonderful thing. As long as the ole peepers hold out.

Thanks again for being so welcoming on this site, but it comes to no surprise to me as I already know what gentleman the members are.

Respectfully,

Phil

Hey thanx for the welcome. My bro told me about the site, and I've read a couple articles over the past couple months. The saddleback giveaway was too good to pass up.

Well My family has always been into gardening and we noticed one year that a lot of our crops were failing. So we did some research and found out it was from a lack of Pollination. My Dad then decided to enroll himself and I in a Bee Keeping course. (He all ready knew a little since my Grandfather (Who is from St. Lucia) was a bee keeper.) So at age 16 I was one of the youngest in North Carolina to pass the State Bee Keeping Exam and now I keep Bees with my father as a hobby. We harvest honey and wax making small things such as Chap Stick and Candles. Its some pretty cool stuff! For example did you know that male bee's Can not sting!

Thanks for the welcome Brett. I have enjoyed your website for awhile now and have really envied a friend who has a Saddleback brief case, so I am trying to take full advantage of the giveaway. Cheers.

Thanks for the welcome! Yeah the quote is from "Wind, Sand and Stars". I highly recommend it, it's full of stuff just like that.

Well hello Brett! Mr fellow Okie!
I would love to contribute to your site. I have been seriously considering my own blog - yet, I don't feel I can fill pages and pages. But, as a 50 year old guy, I've been through lots of cultural stuff and had many heart ot heart discussions with other men. Add this all together, and I think I fit into your universe pretty well.

Would love to get to know you a bit better. Regards!
Regards

I wanted to get out of Southern California, see new places, and experience a cold winter. I chose Marquette because when I visited the campus something just clicked and I liked its philosophy of building the "whole person". From that first visit, I found that is was the college meant for me.
