Watermelon 5K – Independence Day

Got up early and drove north of downtown to the City of Winter Park for the Hunter Vision Watermelon 5K. There were over 3,300 runners and we all got free watermelon! I increased my run/walk interval to 3min/1min and it felt great. Beat my previous 5K time...

Oakridge Gun Range

Haven't been out shooting in a few years.  Picked up a box of shells and went with a few friends to see how much edge I have lost.  To my surprise I seem to be at least as accurate as I was when I was going regularly.  I'm not really great, but I can still hit the...

NC Telecom Update

Well, the judge in the NCT bankruptcy case ruled that our reorganization plan and auction should move forward as presented in our motion.  He apparently did not buy the argument that the parent company or current management (moi) allowed our personal stakes in the...

Green Mist

Took a pic of our outhouse with my iPhone and used the x-ray filter in the Vihgo app. Makes you wonder what I had for breakfast eh?

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

Just fruit.

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...

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...

Long Overdue Update

Tons of photos! Lots has happened in the past couple years. Left Florida and moved north to New Jersey. I recently spent some time fixing a bunch of issues with this blog and figured I would post some photos.

First misty morning.

2nd New Foal This Year

I just realized that I didn't post a pic of the new colt born Sunday May 3. The photo below was taken when he was 7 days old.  His momma was a maiden mare and both baby and momma were challenged by the whole nursing thing.  Baby didn't know where the teat was or what...

Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas from Willow Street, Port Monmouth, New Jersey Drago is actually a very friendly boy who is trained well. In the photo above he was just responding to the "speak" command. He is passing along best wishes to everyone for the...

Fall Weather

Summer was mild, then we had a cold snap in early October with freezing temps, but since then it has been a beautiful fall season.   Let's hope for a normal mild Delta winter.

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...

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:

The sky. Right now.

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...

Just updating…

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...

Epcot

Epcot

Took a trip to Disney Epcot, haven't been there in 20 years or so. Had a great day just walking all around Bay Lake visiting all the countries. Lunch at Tutto Italia Ristorante in Italy and dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse in the Yacht Club Resort. Beautiful...

HTML Work

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...
