Be careful when taking your Christmas pics!

We’re Official Apple Fanbois (sorta)

Sandi was the lucky recipient of an Apple MacBook Air for Christmas and she loves it.  I have had my MacBook Pro for almost a year and I too really like OS-X and the laptop design.  In addition we both have iPhones and we're pretty much entrenched in...

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.

Sandi is the Pied Piper

Sandi and the geese get along great. They sit in her lap and peck lightly at her rings and bracelet as she pets them. After a bit they quiet down and just relax and poop on her LOL.

Wood Stork

Spent some time at the lake at the Orlando Fairgrounds watching wildlife.  The Wood Storks were content to stand nearby and splash in the shallows, but eventually took off for parts unknown.   Below: Splashing in the water   Below: Finally got camera shy and...

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.

All the time deal with it up!

This isn't a busy site and there certainly isn't any reason for anyone, including bots, to spam my posts with comments. It still happens. Fortunately the Askimet plugin catches 99% of them and they never even make it to me for review. Some of them do slip in and they...

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...

Reached some goals…

I've been trying to lose some weight since I moved to Florida in April and I finally hit my first goal. I started at a whopping 277 and set a target on 230, which I reached today!  47 pounds shed! The trick for me was to exercise regularly. I began tracking activity...

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...

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...

Green Mist

Took a pic of our outhouse with my iPhone and used the x-ray filter in the Vihgo app. Makes you wonder what I had for breakfast eh?

Yearly Update

Just a bunch of pics to keep things updated.

We DID move!

We finally moved from the house in Meeker , we stayed there wishing we had something larger for almost 6 years.  Although we put a lot into it by adding outbuildings and recently built a barn/shop, it has always not quite met our needs somehow.  The land was hilly,...

Hooked up again

I had my final surgery on Thursday to reverse my ileostomy and I'm being released from the hospital in a few hours. Woo-hoo! All systems seem to be working fine and I'm digesting scrambled eggs & pancakes as I write this. I still have a month or so of healing of...

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...

For the last few years I've been doing pro bono web development work on and off for several German Shepherd rescue organizations, in addition to my job at the Matawan Aberdeen Public Library. There's also been a paying gig along the way that I stumbled upon. German...

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...
