Well, it’s about time I re-launched my web site. It’s been a few years, but I decided this morning that today is the day.
So what is my site about? Anything and everything — from amateur radio to stupid YouTube videos. Let me warn you now though, you will most likely come across something(s) that offend you. Deal with it.
Thanks for visiting
