    We are working like crazy these days.  From cutting tree limbs to doing yard work for a lady in Angola to our own yard work to fixing TV’s to picking up “stuff” for the church garage sale.  The list goes on and on and on.

    So far this summer I have had little time to sail Little Yellow, an American Fiberglass sailboat, and this is too bad.  I thought I would be lazing around when I retired but this has not happened.  The days fly by and merge into years.  It is amazing how we identify ourselves and the things we should do.  I used to think my dad sort of wasted his time cracking hickory nuts and now I find myself sort of in the same mode doing things I like to do.  It has nothing to do with money but pure satisfaction is the byproduct.

    When I was much younger I spent my time climbing the ladder.  When I had reached my level of maximum incompetency, I slid quickly back down to the thing I truly identified with and that was technical arenas.  I spent the rest of my career trying to learn the ever expanding knowledge base of electronic device and components.

    Now I still and programming device and building them too.  My favorite latest work area is Raspberry Pi – I have been building lots and lots of Raspberry Pi devices – and I have made security cameras, media centers, digital radio converters and many other items of interest.


    Today was a church day and afterwards I took a short nap and now I am in the Technical Room writing and planning how to incorporate a managed switch into my scheme of things.  This will include a raft of security cameras around the premises.  Oh what fun I am having and I have learned The Secret that we watched last night on Amazon.  I would recommend that everyone watch this 1.5 hour movie and it may become one of the new elements of your life too.  Moore later.
