Hi all. If you don’t know who I am right now, you will in the next few posts or so. My name is Gord and I was born blind at birth with a birth weight of 2 pounds and 6 ounces. I was 3 months premature and was put in an incubator when I was cut out. To give you an idea of when I was born, the first Queen album was a month away from being released and it was 3 years after The Beatles broke up.
My main interests are: music, Ham Radio, vehicles and how they operate, hockey and I am a bit of a news junky.
My favourite bands are: Metallica, Slipknot, Queen and Tool. My favourite TV show is The Simpsons and my favourite characters are: the entire Simpsons family, Krusty The Clown, Mr. Burns, Auto Man and Nelson Muntz.
My favourite actors on the show are: well, everyone I guess. If I had to choose it would have to be a toss up between Dan Castellaneta, Nancy Cartwright and Yeardley Smith. In fact, it was her blog which inspired me to want to go for my own and she deserves many thanks for it. Check out her blog Gobbing Off on Tumbler. I read it and it is well done. Unfortunately I can’t see any of the pictures she posts.
That is all for now. I will be posting from time to time about things that I feel need to be said and there will be many topics covered which I am interested in and I hope you will be to. You can follow me on Twitter at either BlindGordie or VA3WXA. The latter is my Ham Radio call sign and it mainly has licensed Ham’s following me and the other is for everyone else.
By for now folks.
