Just A Girl, that is showing that every one of us that you can make a positive change in the world around us.  Just A Girl that I am so very proud of. Just My Girl, Kaydee Rose. This morning a photographer and a reporter from the Bend Bulletin stopped by the house to hear […]

My friend Jay Nicholas has authored many amazing books over the years, but just recently launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help launch his biggest project yet – The Salmon Fisher’s Journal. The Salmon Journal is an intricate story built around the Chinook. The reader will learn much about fishing technique here, but the author’s infatuation with […]

I boarded the Iceland Air flight from Copenhagen late on a Monday night, and during the entire trip, the jet chased the final Gold Laces of light in the West. The sun had yet to set in Iceland when I landed just before midnight… a crazy thing to experience, and I was immediately thankful it […]

Time has been rolling by quickly as of late.  My daughters finished up 3rd and Kindergarten.  Summer started ( late due to snowpocalypse ), and we have already been on some great adventures. And of course I haven’t been musing about them enough here on the blog.  So here are a few quick snapshots from […]

Flip flops, beer cans, […]

Vacation homes are always an adventure.  This past week we stayed at a place on the Oregon coast outside of Tillamook in small bedroom community called Cape Meares.  The area has an interesting past – it is near an old resort community named Bayocean, that was eventually washed away by the mighty Pacific.  The location was […]

Yesterday I went to visit some Old Friends ( <– you really should open that in another tab and give it a listen ), with one of my best friends.  Smith Rock is a magical place – not certain how else to explain it.  My first years living in Central Oregon I spent countless hours at […]

From time to time I post things to this blog on accident.  Reason being, I’m fortunate enough to work alongside 500+ amazing people around the world to make WordPress and other Internet things a bit more awesome each day. Right now I’m working on the post editor and crafting many test posts. So to apologize […]
