    Just the man I need to ask! We have two large pieces of Plexiglas I had cut as inconspicuous gates to keep our dogs out of a couple rooms. Over the years they have gotten some minor scratches. How do I polish them? Thanks!

    Born in Detroit. Followed my parents to San Diego - I was 10 at the time and didn't have much say in the matter. Stayed through college - dropped out in the early 70's and moved to rural northern CA. Taught myself to be a surveyor and got licensed. Taught myself to be a civil engineer and got registered. Retired as a City Public Works Director at 55 a few years ago and moved to Portland OR. Absolutely love it here.

    Randy: I signed up to cook, waiting on final details from Nancy. Hopefully we will have a strong showing of our growing number of Chicago area eggers.
    John from BGE has been doing a great job of setting up dealers around here.

    I spent a saturday on Lake Martin a few weeks ago while visiting some friends in Wetumpka. Very nice place down there. I kept looking for Eggs with some smoke billowing out the top while running around the lake all day.

    I was born and raised in a very small farming community about 35 miles north of Kansas City.

    After several years in law enforcement, a hitch in the Army and finishing grad school I settled with my wife in Buford, GA, about 25 miles NE of Atlanta. She is a true southern belle from South Carolina.

    I am a co-owner of and chief operating officer for two inter-related businesses, one is in consumer finance and accounts receivable and the other is a law firm. I am not an attorney. My background is in database modeling, statistics, and forecasting. I guess that makes me a math geek.
  • This is so much fun!! Great to see that others have really interesting careers and lives.

    I live in St Augustine, FL but am originally a New Englander. Most of my family still lives there. I'm married to a true southern gentleman from TN and we have a 20 year old son who is attending college but still lives at home. I work part time at a local Ace hardware store, which doesn't pay much but the employee benefits are awesome. (We are a BGE dealer ;) ) We own a rebar fabricating business, but I don't get much involved in that. My passion is breeding, training and showing amazing Arabian horses.
