to everyone. For those of you who don't know me, my name
is Mike Shepherd. I'm in my middle Thirties, I've been married
for 18 years to Wendy.
We make our home in Northern Maryland (United States), and
we have 3 wonderful children, all of which are boys. The
oldest is Erick, he's 11. The middle child is Timothy, he's
9. And the youngest, Mark, Just turned 6. Our little men
My Wife works from
home. Several years ago, she started a website called Tipztime.
Since then, she has developed upwards of a dozen websites
and also does some misc. Graphics work & Web Design
on the side. I work for a Major Pharmacy Retailer called
I used to be a Store Manager for them but since Wendy's
business has grown leaps and bounds, I've resigned that
position. I do still work for CVS, however, just enough
hours to maintain benefits. This way I get to spend much
more time with the Family & help Wendy.
A couple of years
ago, we built our first house on six beautiful wooded acres
of land in the mountains. Since then, we have been busy
bees making improvements. All in all, everything is going
great for us. Our children are perfectly healthy, we love
it where we are, and we are finally at a point in our life
in which we are realizing our goals slowly but surely.
As for me personally,
I feel that I'm a fairly easy-going guy. I've been told
I have a pretty good sense of humor once they get to know
me. If I had to stereotype my political views, I'd call
them conservative. I can't say that I have a Religious affiliation,
I do want to be a believer, but in truth, I'd have to say
I lean more towards Agnostic. Some other random stuff about
