Ben celebrated his 4th birthday at the Seattle Children’s Museum with friends and family on Dec 13, 2014. He had lots of fun and got some great gifts. He and his friends ran around the museum, or perhaps walked quickly when the parents could make that happen.

New counters!

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

We just got new granite countertops and did some miscellaneous cabinet work on the kitchen and I thought it would be good to add some along the way pictures. I still have some drawers, shelves and doors to finish, but the new granite looks great.

Brave new world

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

It is a marvelous thing to talk with both my sons on ooVoo at the same time and work on web page design and hosting. Perhaps a little confusing at times, and it works much better if we all use headphones so we don’t hear echos of our own conversations. It seems almost like star trek without the floor to ceiling monitor and the intergalactic translator. I have ooVoo on the laptop which leaves both screens of the desktop available to check out web pages and such, but it is really easy to forget which mouse runs which.

What fun!

Chicken Coop

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

My next project has been decided… we need a new chicken coop to house the chickens which should be arriving tomorrow. I got my practice in with the doghouse, which I built according to a plan that I got on the internet. Next I will have to find a suitable plan or modify one to our liking. I have seen plans that had wheels so you could move the coop around the yard so the chickens can get fresh grass and bugs from other areas of the yard. We may or may not use that style. It is appealing to keep them from pitting out one area, but I am not sure I will ever get around to moving them much. We also looked at coop styles at the Farmers Co-op. There were some nice ones there.

New widget

I have added a new widget to the blog page, thanks to my son Zach, so that I can keep track of my progress on updating my web page. It will be a good visual reminder to me on my progress or lack thereof.

Rainy Friday

Friday, March 14th, 2008

It was a cold day, a cold damp day in the northwest as a hard rain from the Southwest pelted the ground.

It was a good day to work in the shop.
