    My parents called me Hap since I was a such a happy baby, apparently never cried...

    Not sure what happened between then and now...

    Plus, I use the same on a few other forums and social media so I figured it's just easier to keep it the same

    Well I love barbecue and I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off people.

    I was privileged to sign the "pink slip" for the USS Louisville (SSN724) during my USN career (now live in Louisville) and was in need of a handle on e-bay many years ago, so here's where I landed.  I did sign that slip for a couple of other submarines as well but that's a "whole 'nother story".

    My initials are caz and I used to go by caz2000 until the moderator told me I needed to work on my name. So I added the "zy" and it was party there after. Emails, t-shirts, interviews, tv appearances. Never expected any of it to happen, but I guess that's how cazzy rolls!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
