WHO IS BILLY MAC?

I've gotten alot of questions as to who I am and why I don't have a profile etc..etc...SO I decided to give a little profile here. I will be working on a personal blog in the weeks to come which is one thing I've always wanted to do...not that I'm that interesting but I have some stories.
Some personal information is that I'm a father of 2 boys living in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. I am currently in the sales industry working for a distributor in New Jersey. I am married to my fantastic wife and her fantastic mother lives right next door. Don't worry...be happy. I struggle with weight problems and have recently started to exercise and watch my calorie intake on orders from my doctor. I am down 18 pounds so far and want to get down to 160 pounds. I found a great site called DIET.COM and was reading through it and as I investigated it more started to realize that it was geared more for women...Still a good site to get info. I'll stick to the Mayo Clinic web site for now :)...As far as hobbies I like to spend time with my family and music. I am a classically trained trombonist who loves jazz and played for 10 years in 2 party bands called Full Deck and the Blackjack Brass and the one I left a few years ago when my second son was born was The School Boys. I got to play for the opening of the Philadelphia Convention Center...Former Mayor Rendell's 2nd Tern Staff Party and clubs up and down the east coast. My other hobby and passion is writing and blogging as you can see. I had a famous aunt who worked in the early years of television with Candid Camera and had her own show called Marge and Jeff and through her got to meet some famous authors and people...most notable would be the Rockefeller's where I had lunch at the estate and got a behind the scenes tour of the mansion. I also met Joan Rivers and author's Frank and Malachy McCourt (who come with us to the Rockefeller's).
So that's a quick summery of myself. As I said I will be getting together a personal blog where I have lots of good stories to tell...my opinions of personal finance and the stock market (I even discuss penny stocks) and lots more! Hope that covers everything for those who asked.

I learned about your site through Skittles. You have a very interesting site. How nice that you take time to say good things about other blogs. Keep it up!

I also found your link on Skittles blog and I wonder how you had the idea of going through blogs and "critize" them ?? and on what basis ?

I never looked at blogs until last August and started to read them and thought they were a great idea and way for people to express their creativity...so I thought it would be neat to have a blog that actually reviewed blogs and help to promote them.
