My name is Paul Betts. For the last 20 years I have worked in and eventually owned a Hardware store in suburban Birmingham Alabama. It has been an interesting experience. I’ve always said that we don’t really sell items we sell solutions. On any given day we answer questions ranging from how to kill a fungus in a lawn to how to stop flickering lights. I learn something new almost every day. When interesting things come up I often think how neat it would be to share them.

That is how I got the idea for this Blog. It won’t be any great literary work but I hope I will be able to share some useful information. The focus will be on do it yourself projects, small business and customer service issues. If you ever have any questions or want to disagree or add some information to anything I have discussed please feel free to send me a message.
