"yes" is Young Entrepreneurs Society in Orange MA,  where I was serving thru the Americorps program when I signed up for a free email account.  2 is a number, which is homonymous to "to"   and Matt is my name. I've had that email account about 15 years, and am "yes2matt" all over the web.

I am a high school physics and biology teacher, and an observing administrator commented that my classroom was a 'frenzy' of activity.

One of our life goals was to own a small acreage with house out in the country that was completely mortgage free.   We always would say "Some Day" we will own this.  We purchased own home with 12 acres in Nov. 2009.  In November 2013 we were mortgage free.  We have a sign out front made from an Osage log that says "Some Day".

So, our apiary is named "Some Day", which I guess means bee killer based on the last couple of winters.

I was reading Stephen King's The Talisman at the same time I needed a name for another forum in the distant past. Travelin Jack's journey across the continent resonated with me as my family lived in a lot of different places while I was growing up. So, I became Wandering Man.
