Home to the Peacock in the previous post

Beautiful water feature at Magnolia Park.  I went to a bluegrass festival there last weekend and the views were nice, but the music wasn't to my taste.  Not your typical Bluegrass, more like toothless swamp folk singing colloquial lyrics about life.  

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...

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...

Nature Is Beautiful

Unless otherwise noted, all photos are taken with my iPhone and post-processed with iPhone applications.  I seldom carry my Canon 20D anymore except in situations where I need to use the big 400mm telephoto lens.

Round Bales This Time

After we cut there were several days of light rain and the hay was a bit heavy,  It dried well but our neighbor thought it would be better if he used his big round baler rather than the small baler.

It’s all about perspective

Be careful when taking your Christmas pics!

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,...

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...

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...

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?

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.

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...

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...

Love this burger

Early Morning Run!

Got up early and drove 30 minutes north to Blanchard Park for the Orlando Runners Club 5K. This was a spur of the moment idea when I ran across a blurb for the run online.  I haven't done a full 5K for several years but felt I was in shape enough to do it in 2min/1min...

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...

Removed…

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...
