I am a Southern Gentlemanl by birth and heart. I am your Redneck, Southern Cracker. That DOES NOT mean that I am prejudice of those who are different then I am. I believe in a lot of the Old Southern ways of life.......God, family, friends, chivalry, manners, etiquette and all the things that made living in the Old South enjoyable. God Bless the South! Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born, it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, nascar, country songs . It's being hospitable devoted to screen porches, moon pies, Sun Drop...and each other. We don't become Southern--we're born that way. Some times people may say "oh your southern" like its a bad thing well I'm here to say i love what i am and dang it im proud of it.


 I am a Kentucky Colonel, and the Colonel of the largest civil war 1861-1865 christian-family oriented group in the state of Kentucky, I am a best selling author of local history events, and the local expert of the Battle of Barbourville,Ky.
