SCHIZOPHRENIA: Do you Hear What I Hear? DEMENTIA: I Think I'll Be Home for Christmas. NARCISSISM: Hark the Herald Angels Sing About Me. PARANOIA: Santa Claus is Coming to Get Me. PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE PERSONALITY: On the First Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me...

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...

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...

Bike Rides

So here is another ride. This is just too much fun.

I’m eating well…

Wekiwa Springs State Park

Took my camera and went to Wekiwa Springs State Park today. Walked all around the springs for a bit, then took off on a hiking trail to Sand Lake, a two mile walk. Ambled around the lake taking pictures and then returned to the swimming area. Although I didn't activly...

Holy crap, what were they thinking?

Area transportation for seniors is a laudable goal and most communities seem to have implemented something. Some contract with a local bus company to help get seniors to their doctor appointments while others establish their own systems. When I lived in Meeker, CO...

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?

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...

Time-lapse Ride From Water Witch

Ride home from the Water Witch coffee shop in Highlands. Time-lapse of about 6.5 miles, 35 minutes or so. I slowed it down for the section on the beach.

Rode my bike to Work!

Had our first day of warm weather (65 degrees) so I decided to ride my bike to work. The Library is about 8 miles from home, but the first 7 miles is on the Henry Hudson Trail. The last mile or so is on surface streets but the traffic isn't too bad. It was dark coming...

The bridge at Confluence Park

My daily walk/run takes me through Confluence Park just a few miles from home.  This swaying bridge is in the wooded section and crosses over the Uncompahgre River, just about where it joins the Gunnison River. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbQJt3-M0E0 [mappress...

Airplane or crop sprayer?

Some iPhone 3G S Photos

Took a few shots yesterday while working around the house.  Got a fine pic of our vegetable garden showing how well the corn is doing, and another of the bunny that escaped from our neighbors kids. That bunny is going to be hard to catch.

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:

4th of July Flag and Fireworks

I took the following photo from our back deck using my lowly iPhone 2MP camera.  It shows the fireworks from the lake about a mile away with my backyard flagpole in the foreground.  Just a bit of shadow/highlight adjustment in Photoshop CS3 and it looks OK.

Sharpening our Skills

We're starting to visit the Montrose Rod & Gun Club indoor (and outdoor) range more regularly.  Sandi is a natural with her Glock and Combat Commander.

Took some flag pics…

Update

Not much news recently.  As if you wanted to know, I had hernia surgery, all went well.  We have had a very mild winter so far, we're in the middle of the second warm spell which is melting all previous snow causing a 2nd mid-winter 'mud season'.  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...

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...
