About Me

First of all, why nu2gov?

Playing games online with strangers I go by the handle nu2this. The main reason I went with this handle is to remind myself that no matter how much I know, there is always something to learn. I hope I am always New to Everything I do because being willing to learn and grow is a valuable part of the person I have grown to be.

I have lived in Brewster Minnesota my entire life.

I have worked on a family farm helping pick crops and hoe fields.

I have picked rock and gone bean riding.

I have filled and emptied grain bins.

I have cleaned out boot pits.

I have worked in retail.

I have worked in gas stations.

I have worked on assembly lines overnights and on swing shift.

I am the father of 5 wonderful boys along with my wife Erica. Our boys are aged 23, 19, 16, 14, and 3. Our house, as you may be able to imagine, is filled with a lot of excitement. Our family loves to spend time playing board games and video games together. Our game closet has become a sort of treasure trove of different adventures for game night. Between playing Monopoly at the kitchen table, to playing the new hot game on PC, we have a lot of fun around here.

One of the greatest joys I have is working in my garden. As any farmer can relate, about half way through winter I am chomping at the bit to get back outside and get to growing. There is just something addictive about nurturing a whole host of plants that you can use to feed yourself and your family. All it takes is a little know how, some patience, some planning, and some love.
