Twitter Friend of the Week

I absolutely love the idea of promoting one another when we can! As a result, I have a project called "Twitter Friend of the Week." Each week, I'll showcase one or two of my Twitter Friends so that you can "meet" them.

This week, my featured Twitter Friend is Cap’n Billy of Pirate Parenting. Cap’n Billy is BY FAR the most unusual Twitter Friend I have. Here's what Cap’n Billy had to tell us:

What is your primary business?
Merchant vessel acquisition

What is unique about you or your business?
I have a hook and a peg leg. I like pillaging, plundering, rum and long walks off the plank.

What is one fun thing about yourself that most of us don't know?
I'd tell ye but I'd have to kill ye afterwards.

Do you work from home or an outside office?
I work from a ship-board office.

What is your favorite computer application?
Anything I can pirate. Arrrgh!

What is your favorite food?
Salt cod and hardtack

If you could be a super hero, what would you be called and what would your super powers be?
Ye don't need superpowers when ye have cannons.

What one piece of advice would you give someone who wants to get into your line of business?
Raise yer crew by going to a tavern late at night. After the rum's gone, they'll be more likely to follow ye.

What is the follow link for one of yourTwitter Friends who you think everyone would benefit from following and why should we follow them?
@darthvader

As you can see, Cap’n Billy is extremely unusual. I mean, how many of us get to say we know a real live pirate?? Check Cap’n Billy out on Twitter at @pirateparenting.

You're welcome, Roy!

Sheldon, I'm hoping that his parenting style is more tongue-in-cheek than serious.  The exerpts from his book are hilarious!  (I'm considering "walking the plank" as a new disciplinary action in our house.)

Thanks Carolyn!  I'm doing my best to keep up with demand.  I think it would be really cool if other people featured their Twitter Friends too!

I'll tell ya, TLW.  When I first came across this guy, I immediately thought of you and thought that you two would hit it off perfectly!

Renea,

Did not catch that you are on AR. You followed me on Twitter. Have enjoyed you twitter feeds. As for your other post - potty training. I am past that, but have a 7 month old grandchild. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks for the follow.

Richard
