    Hi

    One of the engineers I work with asked about getting a picture of one of the other engineers, who also has a ranch. He provided a similar picture. So, two of us have pictures of ourselves, but you really can't tell who we are. Given the NSA, it felt relevant to post it here.

    Mine is a photo of me, about a third of the way up the ladder on the middle smokestack of the RMS QUEEN MARY, at the 2010 Art Deco Festival. Given the amount of beverages consumed that evening, we shall not discuss the ill advised decision to climb the stack in the first place.

    Scratch thatーI just changed my avatar and am no longer a flying pig. Although I may or may not be a swine. Depends on who you ask.

    Currently, it's a slice from a record cover that I did for a friends' band.

    The significance of mine is of such a very deep and personal nature that it would be much too emotionally taxing to divulge at this time. Sorry.

    Ah, well, it's not actually me although I have a habit of wearing my shirts buttoned all the way up minus necktie. Shirts just don't look right unbuttoned to me but I find ties a bit constraining (but I do wear them for certain occasions).
