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...

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...

Animated Drum Crushing

This is brutal.  What you are seeing is a 55 gallon drum being devoured by a crusher.  Imagine falling into that!  Just a random animated .gif image I ran across.


Not a fan of pumpkin ale. Don't like most 'flavors' added to my beer or cigars or pipe. [shrugs]

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.

Summer ’05

Summer in Meeker is a short-lived thing, and this year it was very comfortable.  Sandi and I took several trips to see Joe and Anita in Missouri, even spent a lot of time looking at property to purchase.  In the end, nothing came of it as there isn't much in the way...

I am the chimney sweep

It's a dirty job and Mike Rowe wasn't around.

Sharpening our Skills

We're starting to visit the Montrose Rod & Gun Club indoor (and outdoor) range more regularly.  Sandi is a natural with her Glock and Combat Commander.

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...

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...

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...

Found another old pic…

Probably taken in 1996 after we moved to the house on the Kern River outside of Bakersfield.  We had the black H1, the SL500 and Sandi's Miata.

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"...

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...

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...

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...
