Q: Who is Menelaus?
A: It's me...no really, it is. Don't you recognize me? Menelaus is a handle that I have used for the past 8 years and has always stuck. It started back in college when I was reading Homer's Illiad. The red-haired lord of the battle cry seemed to fit the personality so I went with it.
Q: Who is Hobbes from Hobbes' Lickable Link?
A: Hobbes was my labrador retriever. I needed some sort of graphic for the links section so I decided to feature him. Hobbes unfortunately is no longer with us after developing osteosarcoma, a very deadly bone cancer in dogs.
