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....

07/06/21: Sunday Dinner Fish On The Grill!
It had been such a beautiful day that Sue thought we should grill out. She had stopped at the fish market, and based on a recommendation from the owner had bought some snapper cod.

Ready to hit the grill!

Interesting, and it turned out just great, complemented with a nice bottle of white wine.

07/07/21: Early Dinner Out
Because it was such a beautiful Summer day, Sue and I decided that we'd get out of the house, and go out for an early dinner.

Yup, this is nice.

07/10/21: Kayaking on Gilman Pond
After heavy thunder storms yesterday, Saturday 07/10/21 broke out into a bright sunny day so we went kayaking on Gilman Pond in Alton, NH.

We had a nice lunch that Sue had packed up for us, resting our kayaks up against a fallen tree in the shade of other surrounding trees hanging out over the water from the rocky shore of the pond.

07/11/21: Beautiful Sunday and Great Dinner
Sunday 07/11/21 proved to be another spectacularly nice Summer day, and a terrific backdrop for my on-the-fly Sunday Dinner Party For Two!
