I am the chimney sweep

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

Happy Easter!

Just a quick note to say Happy Easter to everyone.

Redneck Turkey Roasting Video

The skewer kept slipping and I had to resort to using something to hold things together.  It worked well! httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vM8gfCmZBs

Losing weight and lowering BP

Regular exercise like walking 2.5-5K a day and eating right is paying off!  Goal for now is to drop 47 pounds, hope to be there by mid August.

Captive in my own home

Although my recovery is coming along fine, my mobility is limited by abdominal tenderness. I've been on the couch or in bed for days on end and it is annoying to say the least. The other night brought a beautilul sunset with bright long shadows that enticed me from...

Morning Moon

Original and square crop filtered. It was 2 degrees at 7am.

Not a good day. #zombie

Great New Email Client

And then there was Postbox. I don't usually plug software on this blog but I have to make an exception for Postbox.  I switched from Outlook several months ago and I love this alternative written by some of the key developers from Mozilla and Thunderbird who have now...

Too Friggin’ Cold!

It is not supposed to be this cold here in Delta.  We are in Colorado's banana belt.  This is a snapshot from my weather station/web site. Yesterday when I originally posted this it was -7.2.  I updated it this morning (Thur the 10th) with this -12.8 pic.

… along came a spider

Found this cutie inside the lid of a sprinkler valve box.

More iPhone stuff and NCT update

As if you were interested.  I've been running the v3.0 beta for weeks now and it is nice.  But the really exciting news is the new hardware that is probably going to be released, probably in June.  I plan on pushing my current 16GB 3G phone to...

No horses were harmed in the making of this photo

This isn't a real pic, it is actually two pics taken with my iPhone while the horses were sleeping one morning recently.  I stitched them together using the iPhone app Auto Stitch, cropped and framed them with the app Photogene, and added the lightning with the app...

Happy New Year 2008

It's official, 2008 is here and Sandi and I hope it brings the best to everyone. [taken with the online snapshot feature of my Canon Weather Cam] From a personal perspective, Christmas could have been a bit more relaxing.  On Dec 16th after 3 days of abdominal pain, I...

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...

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...

Not quite spring yet…

It's been a cold and wet winter here in Delta compared to normal.  For us it's still a lot milder than Meeker and we are enjoying it daily.  We get a lot of light snow that melts off the same day.  The temps are normally well into the 40's by now but...

Getting settled in

Believe it or not, we are still unpacking stuff.  I worked all day in the garage today and didn't make a dent. A few weeks ago I did get my weather station installed and it is operating with almost all features enabled.  I still have to hang the lightning detector,...

We’re famous! Look at us!

^^ Sandi was featured in a gallery exhibition in Denver. ^^ They put me on a gate fence just at the entrance, I drew quite the crowd. Hehehe, actually it is just a new free iPhone app called PhotoFunia that embeds your photos in a number of different and fun...

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...

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...
