Hi, my name is Rick Beres.
Kim was kind enough to invite me to post here, and I thought it might help if you knew a little about me.
My two children and wife (of eleven years and counting) live in Magrath, Alberta and they’re kind enough to let me live there too – if I behave myself. I was born in Lethbridge and raised in Magrath. And to answer the question that I’m sure is burning inside you, I am not a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints. My wife and children are LDS though, and I’m sure you can imagine how happy my in-laws were about my wife marrying a non-member; but all that is water under the bridge, as they say.
I work in Lethbridge as an IT Manager at the largest law firm in town (insert shameless plug for North & Company here), and have various hobbies related to graphics, design and computer programming. I am a geek.
I enjoy a good discussion on most topics, especially social policy, politics and the eccentricities of members of the LDS faith.
That’s me in a nutshell.
I’m looking forward to contributing to this blog.
