The Orlando Eye

The Wheel at Icon Park opened on May 4, 2015 and I finally went to check it out! My flight time was scheduled for 4:45 (tickets online in advance), but I received an email about an hour ahead saying it was 'not in operation' and that I could make use of my...

Our iPhone 3G S Warranty

On release day Sandi and I both got the new iPhone 3G S models and they are great.  Last week, after having the 3G S only 10 days or so, we were playing Scrabble together over WiFi in bed when all of a sudden the entire left one-third of her screen inexplicably went...

Changed from Running to Cycling

Well, it happened. This year I discovered that my body just doesn't handle the impact of running any longer. I've been using Runkeeper to track my running and walking activity since July of 2010. In that time I've tracked over 500 runs for a total of 980 miles. It was...

We may be moving…

Although we have listed the house for sale in the past, the market momentum has increased here and delivered a buyer.  We have a good, firm offer and the closing is set for July 2.  Of course we immediately went looking ourselves and we found a nice place in...

Just an update

Spent a bit of time updating the pics pages and moving the site as a sub-web of my weatherweather.net site.  I've always been interested in weather phenomenon and after leaving Bakersfield it dawned on me that I'm finally living in an area that actually HAS...

Holmdel Park & Bell Works Ride

Longest ride to date. Left around 1pm and headed to Holmdel Park. Only took about 45 minutes. After cruising aropund there a bit on the wooded trails we rode to Bell Works, just over a mile away. What a neat place. Grabbed some coffee and headed home. Nice 3 hour trip.

A New Baby Colt

Sandi acts as the breeding and babysitting facility for our babies as well as her brother and sister-in-law. This fella is from Dollie, one of Jeff and Leta's mares.  No name yet.

Corn Field Maize and Artwork

Crop circles are taking on new shapes here in Olathe, CO.  The DeVries cut an amazing maze into their cornfield using GPS mapping, creating a huge picture of a farmer on a tractor.  The labyrinth is open from now until Halloween, but for one night only it will be...

Are Ya Bored With Cycling Posts Yet?

After several days of rain it finally warmed up a bit (48°) so I took a long ride to Sandy Hook Gateway National Recreation Area. Total of about 21 miles. There were some Kite Surfers in the cold waters on the bay side. [video width="1920" height="1080"...

Obtuse Bronze Sculpture

I can't tell what this statue is all about. Is she being arrested and going to get frisked? Or is she preparing for position 78 in the Kama Sutra?

Panzer and Dad. Ride in the pickup.

4th of July Flag and Fireworks

I took the following photo from our back deck using my lowly iPhone 2MP camera.  It shows the fireworks from the lake about a mile away with my backyard flagpole in the foreground.  Just a bit of shadow/highlight adjustment in Photoshop CS3 and it looks OK.

Cedaredge Apple Festival

One of the carnies showing off the Euro Bungee.  It rained.

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...

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...
