    Everything is on Youtube; Even the Bathroom Sink

    by  • November 23, 2013 • General • 0 Comments

    Today was a day for odd jobs around the house. The biggest jobs were replacing some taillights in the old Honda and unclogging the sinks in the girl’s bathroom. Removing the traps on the sinks is pretty straight forward. However, our house has PVC plumbing which is getting older and brittle. In the past,...

    After three days of driving, I arrived back home in Redmond around 4:00 PM. The first couple of hours today, from Missoula to Coeur d’Alene, were the most spectacular of the trip. I passed through mountains and valleys with rushing streams. I could easily envision folks fly fishing in those streams catching big fish....

    May Day

    Today is May Day. A day traditionally devoted to festive celebrations for ringing in spring. However, in Seattle, May Day is also Protest Day. Unfortunately these protests have too often turned violent leading to investigations of alleged wrongdoings and unpreparedness by the Seattle police. This has even lead to the creation of Seattle’s own...

    Another Blog

    I haven’t been writing a blog since I left Bluetooth SIG almost a year ago. During that time, I have accumulated a lot of observations which I need to get out; thus another blog… To keep things interesting, I’ll mix new observations with the older onen.
