Peter, February 2020

I started this website back in the late 1990s as a way for friends to keep up with my activities. The site has expanded since then in many ways beyond the few, simple pages of content I began with. I've met a lot of great folks from all around the world because of this site, and look forward to meeting many more.

The web in general has grown and changed considerably as well. Static personal web sites such as this one have mostly been replaced with interactive blogs, and other online social media and social networking sites such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.

As a senior web based business applications software engineer, I watched all of this development over the years with great interest, seeing what a remarkable change this was for building communicative relationships on a huge scale. When I started this site, not only wasn't that possible, it was unheard of.

But I had, and still have, no interest in broadcasting my activities to the world through these social media venues. Rather, I simply chose to continue with this basic, straight forward format.

The businesses I have, and have had, as referenced here are not social media type entities, anyway. They're simply activities that I engage in. Clients find me either by stumbling onto (er... that would be referred to) this site, word of mouth, or through standard marketing and advertising methods.

This isn't a web blog with interesting things being written about. It's just a way for me to record the ordinary things going on in our lives, as well as a central listing of the other activities I'm engaged in. I enjoy writing, and so this was more of a relaxing escape for me from my busy work life, and now a relaxing enhancement for me in retired life, than it is to provide witty entertainment for casual visitors.

I'm sorry, but many times I get far behind in creating and posting the detail page and corresponding pictures that go along with an event entry. Bear with me as I try to keep up with these postings....

12/02/22: Getting Christmas Tree
This year we headed over to Neva Dun Farm to get our Christmas tree early. Ever since the day after Thanksgiving the roads around here have been buzzing with folks going to the different tree farms. So this year we decided to head over early.

This year it was all cut your own tree. When chatting with Ken, the owner, he suggested we hike to the back side of one area of the property where there were some special balsam mixes. We got one and the smell was so fresh. And the tree lasted bright green and moist all the way into the second week of January when we took it down.

12/17/22: Major Winter Storm
Wow! Did we get slammed 12/17/22 with a major winter storm! Unbelievable! A foot and a half of heavy snow followed by almost 2 days of high winds driving torrential rains that dropped at least 2 inches. The runoff was so bad that we got 6 inches of water in the basement that took a couple of weeks to dry out.

We had a really great time with Marissa, Gary, and Mia bringing in the New Year with another wonderful visit to the 'Winter Wonders' in Eliot, ME, and then back to their house for dinner and a movie.

01/08/23: Really Interesting Dinner
Sue handed me a recipe for 'Cuban Chicken With Citrus Avocado Salsa'. It sounded really interesting, and so I added all of the ingredients to my list. It was a fairly quick fix, and the flavors... well, it was spectacular, and nicely complemented by a nice bottle of William Hill Sauvignon Blanc. We'll be doing that again.
