|The latest goings-on.
|Moved to the Mountains
||I always I would not be in Houston for very long. Things feel together
very quickly and I found a house I loved in the North Georgia Mountains.
Bike riding heaven. I only hope my body lets be ride at the level
I want to ride... age is catching me on the hills.
||I took a trip to Spain and Portugal with my sister. Spent time
in Madrid, Obidois, Portugal along the northern coast and at a friend's
wedding in Siguenza, Spain.
Steamboat Springs Pentathlon
||I shot these at last year's race when I was visiting my sister
|I am trying to decide which of 2 places to buy. Here is a photo
gallery of the 2 places I have narrowed my interest to. Each are
completely different lifestyles: one is a bit of a fixer-upper while
the other is not at all and I would live a more urban lifestyle.
They each appeal to me for different reasons. The links to the left
take you to photos of each.
||I am moving to Houston, TX. New job, new life and new home. My
plan is to keep the house in ATL and rent it out. Here are some photos
of it I took for the real estate people who are going to get tenants.
It was a tough decision to move and there is lots to tell about the
events of the last month. But for now I have to devote my time to
moving and preparing the house here.
||I am moving to Houston, TX to start a new job and one of the top
3 things I will miss in ATL is the beautiful GA mountains. They are
heaven to ride in. Here are a few shots of the last GAP ride for
me. I was out there with 2 friends Eduardo and Steve and my sister
Jen. About the biggest hill I will find in Houston is going to be
a parking garage.
Photo Show Fun Shots
||Most of these shots are taken after the Photo show and afetr a
couple of drinks. Ellie, this is for you!!!
in the new garden 2004
||After my front yeard was relandscaped it has come in quite nicely
this spring. I enjoy just walking around in it and seeing the growth
progress. Here are some photos. Can you find the little spider?
My buddy Mike came from Dallas to visit and see the Tour of
Georgia. We had a great 2 days watching the race in th North GA
mountains. My friend Dena came to see the race with us on the second
day. It was great to see the riders climbs the hills we have trained
on for year. Here is a photo gallery of some of our favorite shots.
|Little Joe Bender's Horoscope
||Sarah's fiancée Tommy is a very creative writer with a great
sense of humor. He compiles a horoscope every week and I will be
putting it up each week here.
Tommy Hawaii Vacation
||Sarah and Tommy were sent on a surprise trip to Hawaii in early
March... and they got ENGAGED! Check out their photos here.
||On May 1st I am doing a first: a photo exhibit of some pictures
I have taken over the years. I hardly think my work is that good
but my dear sister Jen thinks it is and has been very supportive.
It is in Stonestreet clothing store in Harvard Square that the exhibit
will take place. Jen buys the women's clothing there which has become
a very successful part of the store. Her friend Bill has owned and
operated the store for over 20 years. They sell high end men's and
women's clothing. Please feel free to give your opinion on the photos
I have to choose from in this link. Feel free to send the link to
others for their input. Thank you!
|I went to Ottawa, Canada to teach a 4 day class. It was my first
time there so I brought my camera and took some photos. I ended up
having a fun group of people in class and we had some good laughs.
I taugth them PSoft and they taught me French (le le) I learned that
the French Canadian translation for Shazam is ZAPAROO!.
|Work Table/ Bench
||In preparation for making the kitchen cabinets I decided to make
a HUGE work bench. It is 4' x 8' and quite high.... about 45 inches.
I put it on wheels to be able to roll it around the garage and driveway
if I need to. It is very sturdy and heavy as hell. It will come in
very handy even after the kitchen is done. I basically built it in
a day based on a plan I made up in my head last week while travelling.
I really like doing that kind of stuff.
||A listing of written stuff. I intend it to be mostly a written
account of things I have been up to and thoughts when a page or pictures
on my web site can not express things. But who knows what it will
turn out to be or where it may go. I write in it when I feel like
it. No schedule. I think they call this a blug, which makes me a
||I was delaying the installation of insulation in the crawl-space
under the downstairs until I had the kitchen renovation finished.
This was mainly b/c I was planning on re-routing a lot of pipes and
electrical, but I have decided not to re-route all of it so the insulation
went in today.
|Living Room Recessed Lights
||I took out the ugly ceiling fan in the center of the room and installed
8 recessed lights to brighten the room up.
|Deck/ Screen in porch installation
||I do not have time to do everything, so I am having a contractor
install this for me. Work is progressing quickly.
|Christmas in Boston/ New
||I visited my sister Jen in Boston for Christmas and we drove to
New York to see our mother for Christmas... but, only after I caught
and recovered from the stomach flu. The link is a quick web-photo
album of the trip while I was in Boston. I was in no shape to take
pictures in New York.
|Skylight Installation FINISHED!!
||I have decided to cut holes in my kitchen ceiling and my roof and
instrall skylights. I'm also doing recessed lights in the kitchen.
New photos 12/28/03.
|Dining Room Recessed Lights
||As a side project to the kitchen skylight installation and while
I had easy access to the attic area, I decided to install recessed
lights in the dining room. It was a day and a half worth of diversion.
|Front Yard Landscaping DONE!
||The landscaping company that created a plan for my front yard has
finished its work and the After
Photos are posted. It ain't exactly the garden of eden but it
is better than the old weeds.

and we took some nice photos one of the days. They are accessible
