So what’s with the name? Pubs, seems to me, always have cool but sometimes weird names. This is really an amalgamation of many different ideas. First off a boar is known for its’ stubbornness and ferocity; and even though not that awe inspiring, it is a formidable foe. A winged one at that sounds mythic. I can just image hearing a story in a Victorian era pub from an old hunter coming back from the darkest Africa or India, and if you buy him a pint he’ll tell the tale of the one that got away was so fast he had wings. To stay on the myth theme, out of Greek mythology there was Chrysaor, who was the offspring of Poseidon and the Gorgon Medusa. It is sometimes said he is a giant or a winged boar. His brother was Pegasus. So who wouldn’t want to grab a pint at the Winged Boar Pub?
What is this site to be? A Renaissance Site. I have too many interests and need to merge them into a united front. Movies, TV Shows, Music, Electronics, Computers, Books, Comics, Games, Cars, Travel, Photography and Cooking; I like it all. Writing publicly is my fear to conquer. To have someone read what you have written is to have them looking into your soul, and I need to escape from my self imposed reticent prison.
Hello, Welcome to the Pub! My name is Blaine Houger and I like working with Apple products, and am ACMT and ACTC certified.

I did my time in kitchens and still relish in cooking and inventing new recipes. To top it off I have traveled and lived around this wonderful world of ours.
