Hello, I'm Eddie - Welcome to diylikeme
Oh that? Diylikeme is a name I made up based on articles, videos and a blog I wrote about how to repair or get things you may need. So do-it yourself like me was born. I'm a Christian husband, father and grandfather in my hometown of Greenville, SC. At this writing, I'm heading into my mid-fifties. A family and a couple of careers gave me plenty of opportunity to learn how to fix some things and to get some things that families and businesses need. I decided to share these "how to's"as diylikeme.

I graduated from Greenville High School where I played a couple of years of varsity basketball. This was back in the day where there was no three point shot or dunking the basketball.LOL From there I went to Greenville Technical College and got a degree in Engineering Graphics Technology. That's just a pretty way to say Mechanical drafting. This lead me to meet my wife of 30 years at this writing, at an engineering company that we worked for.

The Vietnam war was coming to an end as I was finishing high school and I didn't have any desire to get involved anyway so I don't have any military background. That's a decision I've second guessed many times. So we started our family that has grown into a son, two daughters and a grandson. We worship as evangelical fundamentalist Christians. That scares some people but I see fun and mental in fundamentalist. If you're not having fun and your mind is torn up, my bible says "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."

My first career as a draftsman got me into computing. One day my boss took me out to lunch and told me that I had to learn to do computer aided design which we now know as CAD, or find another job. I learned CAD. Fifteen years later the economy was going bad and layoffs became prevalent. I got tired of moving around and another career found me. My wife was on the way to work one day when she told me that I should look into an article about government jobs that she got from a coworker. I still working that job today. Let's just say that if you fly into or out of Greenville, SC, there's a good chance you'll see me at work.

When I'm not at work, I obviously enjoy working and meeting people online. I still like sports. Especially basketball but I like all kinds of competition. I was a Dallas Cowboy fan until Jerry Jones was so disrespectful to Tom Landry. I don't really pull for any one team these days but I like the Steelers and Patriots. I was also a Tarheel basketball fan until the Dean retired.
