I am Mel, as in Chris's wife (and unpaid personal assistant). I am a professional wife/mother with more legal experience than someone without a legal degree should have.

I bake, make candy, work leather, work with stained glass, read, and write. I'm currently learning calligraphy as well. I spend way too much time at the kids school and I seem to be an engineer magnet.

Oh, and I make holes in paper and make large appliances explode :D

I'm just a dumb-ass airplane mechanic in Anchorage, AK who works on heavy jets (primarily 747s) for a living. When not at the airport doing overtime, or sleeping (some overlap with the preceding), I can usually be found either in front of this computer, or out in the shop working on some project. Current projects include a partially built homebuilt airplane (on hold for now), a tore apart 1959 MGA roadster, various WECSOG projects, and it seems like I am always working on something for my Jeep. I'm married, with no kids, and 2 elderly cats.

Who am I? I often ask myself the same question.

I am Kommander, Operations Director for DeltaRangerNinjaSeal the first and finest counter Mall Ninja company in the world. I am also the worlds premier supplier of assless chaps. Don't get caught stumbling around the nuclear wasteland without a pair of Kommanders superb assless chaps.

Wait, you're married and claim when not doing overtime, or sleeping, you're in front of a computer or out in the shop? Um .... dude? I know it's not my place but .... um ....

Hi, I'm Jeffro and I'm an internet and gun junky. I live on the desolate plains of flyover country near Dodge City Kansas. I'm also an overweight dumb truck driver. I used to work for the USPS, but returned to my trucking roots, as it were.

I live on a farm with a dog and a cat(named after Rooster Cogburn), both of whom wish I was at home more often. I have the advantage of my own firing range, and don't take advantage of it often enough. I enjoy just about anything that goes bang, and my collection shows it. EBRs, AKs, surplus, family heirlooms, hunting equipment, a Glock and a couple Kimbers sums it all up. John Moses Browning (pbuh) is a saint, and if there were little plastic statues of him available, one would be on the dash of my automobile.

Glad to see so many familiar "faces" here.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

I'm Bobby, full-time owner of a small IT managed services practice in (technically) sunny Central Florida. Married, no kids, 7 house-trained rabbits, and (at last count) 230 koi.

When not making customers cry, I enjoy reading, making things go boom, and explaining why someone who does IT and collects things that go boom also knows more about breeding koi than local veterinarians and fish-farmers. Oh, and making things go boom.
