No one can pronounce my last name correctly on the first try. No one. My first name is Dan and that is easy enough, although I must have some kind of speech impediment because every restaurant hostess in the world thinks I say Dane or Don. Oh well. My last name is Deceuster. It’s pronounced “dee-kuhs-ter.” My ancestors came to the United States from Belgium where my last name was once De Ceuster. Don’t ask me how that is pronounced. In an effort to help everyone learn and remember how to say my name, I created Dandy Custard. That’s right, say it out loud. Now that is almost exactly how you say my name, just drop the “d” at the end. You’ll never forget it now, will you?
Now a little about me and this blog. I live in St. George, Utah, where the sun shines 300 days of the year and I’m stuck in an office for 261 of them. I create and market websites for a living. I’m married to the absolute kindest, most wonderful woman in the world. I am a sports enthusiast, a recreational musician and a T.V. junkie. I love to learn anything about everything. I’m neither Republican nor Democrat as both sides are wholly corrupt.
I believe in making life happen, not letting it happen. I believe if you don’t know where you are going, you won’t know when you get there. I believe you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. I believe that knowledge and relationships are all we take with us after this life. I believe you can have your cake and eat it too. I believe I have a sense of humor but humor doesn’t have a sense of me.
Dandy Custard reflects who I am, what I do and how I do it. I share my thoughts, my interests and stuff I just like. Hopefully you like it too. I expect that only my wife and mother will read it simply out of duty.
