I was wandering through my folders and hard drives and realized that I have so many have as just bits in the machine. This is a shot when I visited Butte, MT while I was working in Helena on a project. The folk festival was going on and I was able to catch some great […]
I’ve been trying to sell our car for the last couple weeks. Its not as old as this one was in 2010, but 2010 is the year I bough it. Dealerships won’t look at it even though it is in great shape and has very low mileage. It will make a great car for someone, […]
One good thing that happened in 2020 is more people working from home. A reason I don’t think I could get a job is the fact that as a freelancer I can stop work a bit early on a random Thursday to fire up the bbq and grill burgers on the kamadojoe.
Check out this little guy, full of attitude.
This was the second day this week I started the day wandering the park, another amazing day.
This is another throwback to 2010 on a beautiful October trip to the Bowl and Pitcher in Spokane, Wa.
This is picture I took way back in 2009. I think it still holds up.
Yesterday Lorraine (@ihearthestia) tweeted a short thread about Montana which immediately brought back my time there. My very first hydro project, and my first project in Montana was at Mystic Lake, MT. The penstock (big pipe) ran from the lake to the powerhouse along the side of the mountain, about 3.5km, and then dropped into […]
The first flowers in our yard are poking through.
Earlier in March we had a couple amazing days where we thought spring was here early. I took the baby for a nap/walk and saw bunch of people enjoying the beautiful day. Then we had a dump of snow on the 19th, the last day of winter. It was for the birds. Spring is here […]
While slow roasting a pork shoulder is not as time intensive as a brisket, but it does take all day. I’m glad I was able to get it on the Kamado Joe around 9am. Now, off to the office.
On the walk around town to help the baby get a nap in I hear some sirens, turns into a lot of sirens, so I get out of there quick. They just went to sleep. There was a small fire and a lot of trucks, but everything was under control quickly.
A bright sunny day, after many days of wind is exactly when I’d expect the power to go out.

This was taken at the Ronald Reagan airport in DC in 2018. I was there for a Smart Grid Conference. I went again in 2019 and haven’t been back since, maybe 2022 will see me travelling for conferences again. I miss people.
And in case you can’t tell, it’s full of pineapple.
I’ve been looking for a new EF or RF lens for my new camera, preferrably used, but it is a pain dealing with sites like Kijiji and Ebay. That’s all, just annoyed that I can’t get people to reply back, and when they leave ads up well after the unit has sold. The EF-S lens […]
