It Didn’t Explode!

It's the time of year to burn the fields in preparation for the new hay season.  I have a bit of pyromania in my blood so I always look forward to this task.  Armed with my LP tank and weed burner attachment I set out burning the field south of the house.  All went...

Airplane or crop sprayer?

Edible from our garden

I didn't know that artichokes bloomed like this!

iPhone 3G Jailbreak pending…

Link: blog.iphone-dev.org.  I'm waiting impatiently for the dev team to release the jailbreak for iPhone 3G.  Looks like it is still a few days away.  While the new 3G has access to all the apps in the iTunes App Store, there are still a lot of programs...

Recent Rides

Over the past week or so I've done a lot of riding. Rode to work at the library, back to Water Witch coffee in Highlands, to and from Camp K Nine, and to the Keyport watefront. 

Mid-June update

As I mentioned, tomorrow I go in for my 2nd surgery.  I'm looking forward to it and getting my intestines back to normal.  The worst part is having to stay in the hospital bed for 7 days. We are in the middle of our first hay cutting this year, don't know if we will...

Pumpkins, Bats and Owls

We stayed up until about 2am making cookies.

Happy Easter!

Just a quick note to say Happy Easter to everyone.

Epcot

Took a trip to Disney Epcot, haven't been there in 20 years or so. Had a great day just walking all around Bay Lake visiting all the countries. Lunch at Tutto Italia Ristorante in Italy and dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse in the Yacht Club Resort. Beautiful water...

Fireside at the Veitch’s

We all had a great meal the other night.  Appetizers of shrimp and scallops followed by ribs.  Sitting by the fire is a tradition that never fails to bring out good conversation and warm feelings.

Apple Watch – Shop Apple Watch

Maryland Blue Crabs

Before: After:

Bette discovered TV

After 6 years Bette has decided that she likes watching NatGeo and Animal Planet.

Home to the Peacock in the previous post

Beautiful water feature at Magnolia Park.  I went to a bluegrass festival there last weekend and the views were nice, but the music wasn't to my taste.  Not your typical Bluegrass, more like toothless swamp folk singing colloquial lyrics about life.  

iPhone v3.0 Software Announced

Scheduled for release in June or so. Major new features.

Holy crap, what were they thinking?

Area transportation for seniors is a laudable goal and most communities seem to have implemented something. Some contract with a local bus company to help get seniors to their doctor appointments while others establish their own systems. When I lived in Meeker, CO...

Nature Is Beautiful

Unless otherwise noted, all photos are taken with my iPhone and post-processed with iPhone applications.  I seldom carry my Canon 20D anymore except in situations where I need to use the big 400mm telephoto lens.

Breakfast!

Long Overdue Update

Tons of photos! Lots has happened in the past couple years. Left Florida and moved north to New Jersey. I recently spent some time fixing a bunch of issues with this blog and figured I would post some photos.

The Great American Bacon Race!

Fun event, but a little bit pricey. I guess they need to cover the cost of giving away bacon at two water/bacon stations during the run, and at the bacon party afterwards. Oh, and also pay for the big honkin' heavy bacon finisher medallions.

Everyone seems to get butt-hurt so easily these days.  At least the Irish don't get offended easily. I don't see them demanding that Lucky Charms change their name or stop using the diminutive supernatural being in Irish folklore, the beloved...

Hyperlapse Video

About 7 minutes of Hyperlapse video of my 40 minute ride home from work at the Matawan Aberdeen Library. It starts off on surface streets for about 1.5 miles but the balance of about 6 miles is on the Henry Hudson Trail which parallels the Ocean, sometimes only a...
