Who is the GASman? 

You may think this isn't the most complimentary name for a blog.

So apart from the fact that these are my initials, why GAS?

Well, firstly it's also an abbreviation for Greetings and Salutations - and I hope this will become a suitably friendly corner of cyber-space.  In the Irish language, it means someone who is "astonishing or entertaining" - perhaps this is something to which I aspire rather than how I choose to describe myself.  Lastly, it's a verb: "To talk, sometimes excessively".  Some would say this is an extremely apt description of the blog's author!

Anyway, I hope it will be a place that you visit often.
