Happy Music

Recently our family tried a little happy exercise together. Fear not, there was no profuse sweating or smelly closes involved. We each pondered the question “what are the songs that make us happy”. For time and sanitity’s sake we limited the choices, top 3-5 songs. It was also suggested that we accompany the choice with […]

Printer Time

The good news is . . . I am getting a 3D printer. The bad news, well, I guess we will have to wait to find out but there is a distinct possibility that there isn’t any bad new. I can tell that some of you are incredulous but for 2 different reasons;

#1 – […]

Little Packages

Hello, my name is Bob and I am a little package addict.

It started in the mid 90s, I think it was around 1996. Amazon was new to the world, it was an oddity. Of course I checked it out but it didn’t do a lot for me at the time. If I wanted a […]

The wind tends to come from the same […]

Travelogue – Detours

We stay in the house of some good friends. It’s a block from the beach and there is a park 2 blocks away. A block in the other direction takes you to the bay where I go kayak fishing. The house has plenty of room, is nicely decorated and even has a garage where I […]

Travelogue – It’s all downhill from here

Just before we reach our destination for the night in the town of Midway west of Tallahassee we cross into the Eastern Standard Timezone and our 12.5 hours car trip quickly turns into 13.5 hours. We won’t mind going to bed early but we won’t be our usual chipper selves when 6AM rolls around. But […]

Travelogue – Florida Bound

One thing we did different this trip was change up when we got gas. Usually we get down to around a quarter of a tank then pull off and fill up. These stops may or may not coincide with a meal break. The reason we wanted to make a change is because on our default […]
