Same here. My mom had excellent grammar, and I picked it 
up from her. As a result, I never learned the rules. I could 
talk good without them.
I would say "Neither Barry nor I are going to agree 
to that," or "neither Barry nor I am inclined to agree."

To me, neither/nor is treated like either/or, and 
verbs after "or" take the case of the closest noun, 
or whatever you call it. (Dave Barry's Mr. Language 
Person might call it a Nominative Predilection.)
