WOOT! Celebrate! Today is National Weatherperson’s Day

Thursday, February 5, 2009 is National Weatherperson Day, commemorating the birth of John Jeffries in 1744. Jeffries, one of America's first weather observers, began taking daily weather observations in Boston in 1774 and he took the first (hot air) balloon...

Winter is here

Well, winter arrived early as usual.  We usually get snow on or around Halloween and this year was no exception.  Everyone is healthy and things are going well. The company I work for filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in October and I've been handling the process with the...

Sunset and update

I have been remiss in my posting here so I thought I'd offer up an iPhone photo for your enjoyment.  It was taken using the iPhone app called Panorama that automatically stitches together two adjacent photos.  The frame was added wit the app Photogene. On 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.

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...

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,...

Apple Watch – Shop Apple Watch

  Stainless steel and space black stainless steel cases. The display is protected by sapphire crystal. And a range of bands in three materials. Source: Apple Watch - Shop Apple Watch - Apple Store (U.S.) I'm waiting until things mature a bit, but I think the 42mm...

Sad H1N1 Vaccine Story

I don't usually add stuff here unless it relates to our life somehow, but this is an exception.  My purpose in linking to this video is not to discourage people from getting the vaccine, but to show how strange the human body functions.  Keep in mind...

Panzer and Dad. Ride in the pickup.

Spring is here

Spring came early this year.  By late March it was somewhat comfortable for a few days, and April was very nice indeed.  The mud season didn't amount to much more than a few days of melt-off and it was over.  Things turned green very early and spring is...

First Cold Spell

From our weather station cam this morning:

Just updating…

We have been working on the rental and things are going well.  We have a couple all lined up with 3 horses and a teenage daughter, and we hope to have them moved in by the 2nd week of June.  The house is on 1.5 ac and is a 3 BR 1 BA with a really nice bunkhouse behind...

#curepetcancer

This isn't to suggest that my pal Panzer was a victim of cancer, it was tagged as part of an online support photo shoot.  Panzer was the victim of his own exuberance and was taken in a vehicle accident on the road near home.  My consolation is that I was there and...

New From Apple?

While playing 'Words With Friends' on my iPhone I suddenly became aware of why apple named their new tablet PC the iPad:

Got a new camera

After 10 years or so without a good 35mm SLR I finally bought a Canon EOS 20D Digital SLR.  I'm having a lot of fun taking more photos, especially with the Canon 100-400L USM IS telephoto lens.

Bacon Topped Meatloaf

I could lose weight if I had more will power.  Well, maybe not. Dang, that iPhone take nice pics sometimes.

Prep for 5K tomorrow

  Had some weather during my carb loading...  Clouds are real, lightning and temp overlay via InstaWeather app.

More snow

Another snowstorm today, 10″ plus. Took a slow-motion video out the back window.  Click the square in the lower right corner to adjust to screen size.

Sister Visit

A few weeks ago I visited my sister Diane in Maryland. She wanted to get a tattoo and since she was with me when I got my first, I was excited to accompany her. We had a great lunch with Cosmos and then headed for Flesh Tattoo in...

34° this morning

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...

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...

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...

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...
