A few people here know and I'm sure others have figured out that the handle Feral Man was a new persona for this blog specifically in an attempt not to drag any of the old baggage from years past from around the tubes to this new and exciting venture we have embarked upon.

Sandy's path in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut, providing power to

The predicted “superstorm” forced millions along the eastern seaboard of the United States to prepare and thousands more to evacuate coastal areas as the Category 1 hurricane appeared poised to make landfall late on Sunday.
Just a quick hit this morning but I did leave a tune down under
