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...

Rest In Peace Bauer

Today after more than 13 years we had to say goodbye to the 3rd of the original 3blackdogs.  Skansen's JA Bauer was a big, lovable brute that never seemed to grow up.  He was always the low man on the totem pole but took it all in stride.  A bit goofy, he often...

Nephews. 16 & 17 now!

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...

mmmm, asparagus

All along the irrigation ditch that runs adjacent to our property we have the best volunteer asparagus.  On any given day we can just take a walk and pick as much as we need for a great snack or dinner compliment.  It is so yummy.

2nd New Foal This Year

I just realized that I didn't post a pic of the new colt born Sunday May 3. The photo below was taken when he was 7 days old.  His momma was a maiden mare and both baby and momma were challenged by the whole nursing thing.  Baby didn't know where the teat was or what...

Still snow mid-May

[pe2-gallery class="aligncenter" ] [/pe2-gallery]Catching up with some photos. May 22 has significant snow on the West Elks.

WOW, just WOW

This image is not Photoshopped. Large sinkholes devour Guatemala City. A giant sinkhole larger than a street intersection has swallowed a three-story building and a house in Guatemala, as residents reel from a storm that has killed at least 146 people across Central...

Fall at the Park

Bette leads the way as we walk through the fallen leaves of autumn.

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.

Cocoa Village BBQ & Blues

The 5th Annual festival was held in the Historic Cocoa Village downtown park. ⇓ I arrived a bit early and walked the Village Shops where I found the Ossario Cafe.  Had a delightful sun-dried tomato and Asiago omelette, served with their own freshly baked french...

Fringe Festival Retro Beach Party

This boss little afternoon finds rockabilly and surf rockers colliding on the Green Lawn of the Lowndes Shakespeare Center, Featuring the Wildtones, Thee Wilt Chamberlain and Rocket 88, plus a retro bathing suit contest.  I found myself at the Stonewall Bar tent...

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....

IT Management Sometimes Sux

At work we have been working on a replacement DS3 45MB feed since December and it just seems that something goes wrong at every turn.  Now that we finally have the feed and have the new /22 net IP addresses routing properly, suddenly we find issues within our own...

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.

Famous Dave’s rocks

Here's a few recent pics to keep things updated. Replaced my old DeBot brand robot vacuum with a new Wyze  Robot Vacuum. It's faster and uses Lidar to map each room for very efficient cleaning. Next up is Drago sitting so handsome in the back yard. Lastly is a DNA...

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...
