Although I am slightly older than dirt, my wife of 48 years still keeps me around. We have 3 children and 4 granddaughters. We homesteaded one square mile of trees in northern Alberta, Canada in 1982. I have made a living in the home renovation industry for 40 years, and we have built 4 houses. I have been writing for about 20 years-construction articles, magazine columns, soundproofing articles, and politically incorrect social commentary.
