Badger state noob here

Hey Everyone,

Just dropping by to introduce myself.

I'm a married 49 year old home owner from Wisconsin. My family and I live in a small ranch home near Milwaukee.

My initial reason for coming here was to seek help/advice for a plumbing problem. I have resolved that issue already, so thanks to those who chose to respond.

I'll admit that I'm not the most handy guy in the world, and I'm deathly afraid of screwing things up to the point where I have to call in a professional to rescue me. So I see myself returning here quite often to seek advice and expertise from those who can be of help.

Just as a side note, I'm a homer when it comes to sports, strongly rooting for the Packers, Brewers, Badgers and Matt Kenseth. I enjoy playing golf (poorly) and bean bag toss. I'm a big country music fan as well.

I'm hoping to get to know all of the regulars here and expanding my DIY knowledge. Thanks for having me!!

Welcome .. Green Bay guy here, and you are not a "Homer" if you root for the good guys ... :D

and don't worry about screwing things up .. as long as you screw them up safely, its just a learning experience, remember even the "pros" learned something the hard way at one time.
