Thanks everyone!

 

A little about me - Married for 35+ years, 2 kids and 3 grandchildren who are all in the area. We moved after building a new house 1 year ago because of my wife's new job and we wanted to be close to her work. She is a Pastor in Fitchburg, WI. Yes, I get the irony of me being a tax collector (retired) and her being a pastor. Hobbies wise astronomy of course, pheasant hunting with my yellow lab, biking, hiking, travelling (been to Scandinavian countries a number of times), volunteering at my wife's work, and spending time with my 3 granddaughters.

 

Languages wise I know some limited conversational Swedish and ASL (American Sign Language).

 

Steve

Welcome Steve, and thanks for helping out!

 

You'll find that the Questar crowd is, by far, the most troublesome on the site. Not! :lol:

Welcome aboard, Steve. Like yourself, I’m a bit of a newcomer to this forum. I have found it to be a delightful community, and I’m happy to say I’ve met some really incredible people.

Steve,

Thanks for accepting the wand  of online caretaker for the  Questar legacy on Cloudy Nights.  May you, through Mr Bieler’s generosity, continue to perpetuate this fine CN community.  So many good folks with a common passion

Steve,

 

Thanks for volunteering to moderate the gang.  My guess is that the job is somewhat easier than herding cats, but I have no real data or experience to back up that assertion.

 

Cheers!

A bag of Hennings Hatch pepper cheese curds and a tall draft Spotted Cow to wash it down to you Sir!
