We have arrived in Colorado!

Well, we completed our move from Bakersfield to Meeker on November 1, 2001.  Everyone arrived safely and the people, dogs and horses are all fine.  We live about 3 miles outside of town on County Road 4, on the mesa overlooking Meeker and the White River...

Bonfire for Jeff’s birthday

Sandi and I invited Jeff and Leta for dinner for his birthday and lit up a huge pile of brush and other stuff we had gathered from around the property over the summer.  It was quite a display!  I snapped this great silhouette of Jeff while he was tending the fire....

Spring in Colorado

Spring is trying... News on the work front.  For the past few years the company I work for, NC Telecom, has been battling cashflow problems stemming from a massive $12MM loan from the feds for rural communications infrastructure improvements.  Last year the stock...

Christmas season has started

I thought I'd launch the season with a pic taken in 2004 or 2005.  I dressed up as Santa at the NC Telecom offices and greeted kids and adults alike.  Bad Santa.

Happy Birthday USA!

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...

Yearly Update

Just a bunch of pics to keep things updated.

Myrtle Beach/Missouri Trip

Took a trip and visited my sister and some friends. The weather was beautiful all week, spent every day in the ocean, 82 degree water. After leaving Myrtle Beach I headed for MO to visit Joe, Anita and Christine.  Although it rained most of the time, it was perfect...

Just me. Hi everyone!

I love my flags

Sandi got me the flagpole several years ago for Christmas but I didn't I install it until last month. I especially like the Gadsden flag. It is in our back yard.

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...

Skid Vicious has surgery

Sandi took her baby colt to have minor surgery done on his leg. He had a tendon issue that needed a slight tweak. All seems well and he is up and around only hours after waking.

Great New Email Client

And then there was Postbox. I don't usually plug software on this blog but I have to make an exception for Postbox.  I switched from Outlook several months ago and I love this alternative written by some of the key developers from Mozilla and Thunderbird who have now...

IP Change Completed

...and not a day too soon.  We spent the last half of the month replacing cards in our Alcatel and Cisco hardware and finally established a stable DS3 circuit on February 25th.  Bryan spent every night for the next 5 days updating routers while I handled the customer...

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...
