Son. Brother. Proud dad to three sons. “Pops” to my adorable Grace Elizabeth.  Kentucky Colonel.  Rabid bourbonophile. Keeper of the gates of hardfacing and life-long welding devotee.  Alpha Geek – thus the new web site. Unabashed fan of the Oxford Comma.  Trivia lover and classic rock savant who often forgets what he had for lunch.  Slightly CDO (which is OCD with the acronym in alphabetical order as it should be).  Glad to be living on this side of the sod.
