I call myself Radiographer, because that's my job. I produce radiographs--photographic film representations of X-ray "pictures" of the insides of metal castings, usually produced in a steel foundry. We specialize in aerospace applications, like the F-22 Navy fighter, but we're expanding into medical implants (artificial knees and hips and the like) and parts for a carrier (a trailer, really) for the army's latest howitzer. But of course for a price, we'll X-ray anything that's legal.
In other applications, I often call myself Eutychus, after the young man in the New Testament book "Acts of the Apostles" who fell asleep during an all-night sermon by St. Paul and fell out a third-story window.

I saw zedo somewhere and added a letter. I have thought of changing it to Zeedoo, Zedfoo, Zefoo, etc.

My first bike (when I was 7 or 8) was put together by my Dad from various parts (with "bar" brakes as I recall) - when I asked him what brand it was he said it didn't really have one. We took it to the police station to register it, and on the form, under "make", the policemen wrote "nondes". I said to my Dad that must be the make, but he said it just means "nondescript". My current "nondes" has evolved over the years, based on a 1999 Litespeed Tuscany frame.

It's because I'm a Southerner and I'm so damned agreeable.

Red Zinger Classic, now defunct bike race got me into cycling from watching the promo clips at concession breaks in Colorado movie theatres. I didn't have the motor to race but I followed the American scene. I watched the field go by in Manitou Springs in '79 with a teenage Greg Lemond among them but I didn't have a clue who he was and don't recall having noticed him. He was runner up in the overall.

My favorites were Mark Pringal and "Smilin'" George Mount (pictured). When Moe Siegel of celestial seasonings sold the race in '81 it became the Coors Classic
