Welcome to JimPady.com

The WWW Home of Jim Padykula

I started my website in 1997 (originally as www.Jimfo.com) mainly to share my interest in photography, vent about politics, and post just about anything when inspired. I had so much success removing the HOV lanes in 1998 (...OK, thousands of other angry citizens helped a little too) I decided to try for something a little harder: Removing Parkway tolls (www.EndTolls.com). That one isn't going as well. Aside from the politics, I hope you find something fun.

If you get lost, clicking on theLogologo in the upper left will bring you back here. Enjoy!
