Fall ’06

Well, a lot has happened since my last post.  The Fudgey Duck closed rather quickly, primarily due to landlord/tennant problems.  Its just as well, I'm happy to not have a business to keep Sandi away from home every day.  We may re-visit it later, but...

Brisket for lunch!

Went to the Central Florida BBQ Blowout at the Oveido Mall parking lot today. At this humongous two-day barbecue competition/celebration, more than 80 teams – both professionals and backyard amateurs – compete hard for the win, and visitors get to taste the luscious...

The bridge at Confluence Park

My daily walk/run takes me through Confluence Park just a few miles from home.  This swaying bridge is in the wooded section and crosses over the Uncompahgre River, just about where it joins the Gunnison River. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbQJt3-M0E0 [mappress...

We have a new baby!

After waiting 11 months we finally have our new baby pony.  Even before leaving California we tried to get Zanna pregnant but had little success with artificial insemination.  The original stud just didn't have good swimmers I guess. Well, last summer we...

I took this pic yesterday morning.

About an hour later my best buddy Panzer ran out of the house while I was loading stuff into the U-Haul. He wasn't gone but a few minutes. I ran down the long driveway to the road but I was too late. A loaded gravel truck had just gone by; didn't even stop. He was the...

Fly fishing

Went to a local spot outside of Hotchkiss with Sandi, Jimmy, Eva, Jeff, Leta, Justin & Dakota. We fished 4 of the 8 ponds and caught a variety of cutthroat, brown and rainbows.

Night shot iPhone 6 Plus, grainy but nailed the shot.

  I really like ProCamera.  It is easy to use but has depth, allowing lots of control including separate exposure and focus points, shutter or ISO priority and bracketing.  I'll be trying some even darker night shpts soon. Adjustments in Lightroom 5 include crop,...

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...

Rode my bike to Work!

Had our first day of warm weather (65 degrees) so I decided to ride my bike to work. The Library is about 8 miles from home, but the first 7 miles is on the Henry Hudson Trail. The last mile or so is on surface streets but the traffic isn't too bad. It was dark coming...

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...

Fall at the Park

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

Thanksgiving, a time for family

This holiday season has started.  The weather here in Delta is just about perfect for fall, crisp with a chill that reminds you of what is on the way.  I'm going into this season with anticipation of Christmas without hospitals, in good health.  I am so grateful to...

Zoo Lights

Sandi and I spent the weekend in Denver finalizing the NCT auction.  We had great food.  One night at Mizuna and one at McCormicks.  The Oxford Hotel got us complimentary tickets to Zoo Lights and provided Town Car transportation.  Not only were the light displays...

I Want One Of These (redux)

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...

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...
