Company Business Trip

I work in the IT department for a great company. I like working for them even on the rough days. Rough days can be brutal. However, this is not a post about the rough days. I was able to attend a Face to Face meeting at Omni Amelia Island Resort in sunny Florida. Fantastic! I […]

Stepping down as Scoutmaster

On Thursday, December 9, 2022, Troop 660 presented me with this beautiful wooden plaque and compass as a farewell gift. As many of you know, I’ve been involved with Boy Scouts as a youth, and with my son, Quinton. I’ve been an adult leader for the last 12 1/2 years and I’ve been fortunate to […]

January 2020 Challenges

I’ve earned the January Challenges for Apple Watch.

Happy 50th Moon Landing Anniversary

The first moon landing, Apollo 11, was on July 20 1969. Apollo 11’s crew was Neil Armstrong (Commander), Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin (Lunar Module pilot), and Michael Collins (Command Module pilot). To celebrate, I’m listening to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and will follow up with some documentaries about the Apollo missions. Maybe I’ll […]

Fixed Power Windows Switch 2007 Silverado

Last year I purchased a 2007 Silverado 4×4 to use for my Boy Scout trips and some other truck related things. My Silverado has over 101,000 miles and is in pretty good shape. However it needs a little work. Three of the four power windows switches were not working properly or at all. I was […]

Music While Driving to Remote Office

I had my iPod play all my music on shuffle on a 5 hour drive to the Virginia Beach office and several songs from the Lord of the Rings soundtrack played.  It felt like I was on a quest, carrying this new test notebook computer to test a new Active Directory (one Active Directory to […]
