Welcome to our site!

Usually when we see friends we get a lot of questions about what we’ve been up to lately (you know…normal social interaction). Thanks to the pharmacy world, we usually have to cram a lot of fun into a short period of time. Like, my life revolves around my 3 day weekends and what we’re gonna do when we get to those weekends. Fun for us can be another home project, travel, or just hanging with friends. Its the travel and the projects that I like to document. Lately, we’ve been getting more questions about some of the projects we’ve done (especially the automation projects) and the places we go when we travel. So…we created this site as a place for our family to dump any of our musings, experiences, etc.

Lately you can’t turn on the news or social media without being overwhelmed by negativity and fear-mongering; I wanted a place free of the nonsense that we could develop with our interests, not what some corporate tech giant wanted us to be interested in. Plus, you can’t express yourself freely on social media any more. That is, unless you want the censorship Nazi’s to come after you. Yeah, I said that. The only rules I have here are that there can’t be any direct targeting, no foul language, and nothing that is obviously offensive. Feel free to browse. Feel free to comment. Above all, stay positive.

The Magic of Disney

Disney is an experience. You can’t not go to Disney. Once you go…you’ll understand the magic of Disney. Granted, it will also be one of the most expensive trips you ever make, but again, its well worth it. Just make sure you stay for the after show. …

Inspiration4 Launch

Only because my wife and I really enjoy watching launches…here’s the most recent SpaceX Inspiration4 launch. https://youtu.be/3pv01sSq44w For those that don’t follow SpaceX or the current news with regards to how the US is handling space flight, this launch is important because it is the first 100% civilian crew. …

Cut the cable

I hate subscriptions and contracts.  I really hate contracts that seem to reward new customers while leaving the old customers behind.  We’ve used several major satellite and cable TV providers over the years, and frankly it got tiresome to have to call every six months to renegotiate the bill.  Why …
