I'm a DIY (do it yourselfer) and I always thought it would make a funny show to have what really happens on a project.  If you watch this old house, they always have the right tool at the right time and exactly the materials they need.  I had a leaky toilet that turned into a year and a half bathroom remodel.  Of course, they have an army of peons to make sure all that stuff is researched and they can take the scene a few time to get it right.  But for the rest of us, we have to muddle through to the answer.

That was what got me to thinking about a blog.  A place I could post my journey from start to finish on various projects.  From redoing a room or building a shelf to trying to get my various tech gadgets to do what I want them to do.  I'm not an expert or exceptionally gifted at anything, but I'm pretty good at a lot of things.  I chose "the generalist" since that seem to fit.  Also, trying a search for "common man" in the blogosphere.  99% of the hits are right wing political.  When did the GOP become the party of the "common man"?

Anywho, that's what this is about.  Me trying to make sense of my world and finding an answer or two from others who are a little less than exceptional.
