About this Blog

Well, I started this blog in June of 2005 with no real expectation as to what it would become.  I thought maybe I might have some interesting things to say, but it turns out I didn't (don't).  I guess some of the things I write here might be interesting to some people, but for the most part, it is worthless drivel that no one actually cares much about.

There are a select few people (relatives) who get a chance to see the Shepard Boys more than they would otherwise.  I am pretty bad about sending pictures and stuff, but at least I post some from time-to-time here.

If you are interested in Beer, you can read along about some of my homebrewing adventures.  I started home brewing in 2009 and from time to time post little tidbits on how that is going.  Or, you may be interested to see pictures and stories from camping and other outdoor activities that we do.

Occasionally, I'll post something else somewhat interesting to someone. 

If you would like to tell me something, leave a comment or send me an email through the Contact Me Form.

And, now, you can click here to go back to the blog.
