I’m a retired hardware/software Electronics Engineer.

My hobbies are now gardening, fishing/camping/hiking, woodworking, and fooling around with electronics and software.  In that order, usually, weather permitting.  In the bitter cold months, I reverse the order, because a nice warm room is way better than an icy cold lake.

I (last month, September 19th, 2013) just picked up a new hobby: a puppy.  She’s a standard Goldendoodle (“F1b” — see “Generations”), the “runt of the litter”, smart as a whip, and lives up to the reputation of the breed.  My Gravatar icon is a photo of her (“Minnie”), I took when I’d had her for about a day. We’re inseparable. If you’re looking for a Doodle or a rather exotic purebred, I highly recommend Heartland Classics (in Lyons, Nebraska).


I started this blog in late 2010 and really haven’t posted anything since.

So, I’m putting up a static front page and hopefully publishing stuff that will be of interest to anyone who’s interested in gardening, woodworking, and electronics.  All articles will be “free”. Those will include schematics (if electronic), source code (if software), and dimensions if woodworking. As far as gardening, every year is different, but I’ll share what I’ve learned.
