Spring is here

It came about mid-month and the days have been getting warmer ever since.  We are well on our way to completing projects around the house, something we couldn't even thing about doing this time of year up in Meeker. Today I burned the irrigation ditches in the front...

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...

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:

Photos From The Past 1

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...

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...

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...

Christmas and New Years

Despite the inactivity here on the site, we did indeed celebrate both Christmas and New Years. Matt, Brandy and the boys arrived on Christmas afternoon, followed shortly thereafter by Jeff and Leta. We enjoyed a fantastic Prime Rib dinner and were joined by Jim and...

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...

Range Call ’04

I posted a bunch of photos taken at our Range Call celebration.  It is held every 4th of July (4 day event) and includes rodeo, parade, concert, dance and fireworks.  This year we hosted Steve Azar. One of the best parts is the re-enactment of the Meeker...

Sister Diane Visit Again

Another lunch date with Diane, and again at Black Forrest Taphouse. It's an easy 2.25 hour drive each way from Port Monmouth, NJ to Fallston, MD.

Yard work break #cigar

Almost July

Surgery went well, stayed in Delta Memorial 6 days.  The re-attachment of my large intestine failed the first few tries, but he finally got it together without a leak.  Because it was tenuous he performed a temporary ileostomy on my small intestine on the...

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.  

IP Change Completed

...and not a day too soon.  We spent the last half of the month replacing cards in our Alcatel and Cisco hardware and finally established a stable DS3 circuit on February 25th.  Bryan spent every night for the next 5 days updating routers while I handled the customer...

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,...

Just an update

Spent a bit of time updating the pics pages and moving the site as a sub-web of my weatherweather.net site.  I've always been interested in weather phenomenon and after leaving Bakersfield it dawned on me that I'm finally living in an area that actually HAS...
