Some few of you may know me but let me take this time to introduce myself. I go by the name of Kodi usually on the net. My real name is Hank or Henry, whichever you prefer. I was born in West Virginia (jokes are appreciated, I love them) but my family lived in Va. WVa was just nearby and that was the best hospital. Rural....trust me. Family moved to Maryland when I was two so steamed crabs are pretty much in my blood.
Grew up here and am still here more years later than I care to think about, even though I hate the winters. I met my wife, Patricia, 20 years ago and she's been the absolute best thing to EVER happen to me! I say that for the ladies out there to just show that men think about these things too. I did have a first marriage but I won't go into that.......bad......very bad. Happy now though!
I started cooking when the first marriage ended and found that I liked it. I'm now hooked on the Food Network and all things like that. And I have to say that while I'm no chef I am quite a good cook, ask my wife.
In addition to cooking, which relaxes me after a 9 hour day staring at a computer screen, I enjoy reading (science fiction, fantasy, horror, science fact....quantum physics facinates me), motorcycles, guns (yes I'm one of those guys....we're not all bad), comic books (I have about 5000 of them.......never quit since I was a kid), movies, beer (home brewer off and on for over 10 years) and martial arts.
My wife and I have one daughter who is out of the nest with her own offspring (grandfather status bothers me not at all) and we have one dog. She's a Norweigan Elkhound who is 17 years old. We had a Husky named Kodi who died about 4 years ago........and yes that's where I got the name. Sad time then. Oh yeah at one time my wife had over 60 frogs. Exotics from all over the world. But that's another story.
I work in the area of engineering/drafting/design so I'm somewhat of a science guy but it's offset by my motorcycle/gun interests. A "philosopher cowboy" I was once called.......I liked that.
In a nutshell that's me and that's my 2 cents.
