Peter Rose and family

Peter Rose
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.

04/04/24: Massive Winter Nor'easter Snow Storm

04/08/24: Watching The Total Eclipse
Sue and I drove down to her friend Jen's house Monday 04/08/24 to watch the unfolding of the total eclipse over the mountains in the distance.

Without a professional cameras, lens, and filters this was all you get with a cell phone; but it was great fun!

04/09/24: Heavy Rains
Then new culvert and drainage system that we had installed late last year is doing great, but there has been so much melting snow and rain that the previous small amount of water flowing from under the barn has become an issue.

04/11/24: Pat Methany In Concert
Sue and I drove down to Portsmouth, NH Thursday evening 04/11/24 to see Pat Methany in concert at the Music Hall.

Because the Hanover Street Parking Garage was undergoing construction, we knew it would take quite awhile to exit after the concert. So, we parked in the new - well relatively new to us, anyway - Foundry Place Garage, and had a leisurely walk over to the 110 Grill where we had a relaxing dinner before heading over to the Music Hall.

Unfortunately, neither of us really cared for the concert. Chuck had introduced us to Methany's music with his We Live Here album, and we loved that. But nothing that he played was even close to that. It was more experimental guitar, and most of the music fell flat on us with its - to us - dissonant sounds.

But that's okay. We had never experienced that sort of thing, but Methany is spectacularly talented. It's just not our thing....

04/16/24: Mid-Week Dinner Party For 2
I decided to throw a mid-week dinner party just for the two of us to celebrate the start of boating season around here - actually 04/15 through 10/15. I don't have a boat, but used to - so good enough excuse for me, anyway! I fixed up what turned out to be a spectacular shrimp gumbo which we enjoyed with a nice bottle of Apothic Red Winemakers Blend.
