On building a house

Apr 11, 2006

Moss covered trees in the Olympic National Park.

We are planning on relocating to Tucson, AZ. Time for warmth and sunshine. Been in the Seattle area far too long. Moss is starting to grow on me. I don't want to become a 'mossback' as some call Seattle-ites.

So Cheryl and I have designed a house, the house, the one we are going to build in Tucson. Actually, about a half-hour southwest of Tucson in a subdivision called Diamond Bell Ranch. We've looked at hundreds of plans, online and in books, and decided to design our own floorplan. I have, and it is good. It's a U-shaped house, with a swimming pool in the inside of the U, and the entry at the 'bottom' of the U. There will be a detached garage with a covered 'breezeway' between it and the house. (Not sure if 'breezeway' is the correct term.)

Lay-off, moving, and Easter

Here I am, in Tucson, Arizona.

Well, it happened. Friday the 8th, I was layed-off at work. Three 0'clock in the afternoon I'm called into the controllers office, he and the operations manager and I. Turns out my boss new nothing of this before hand. After I was called into the office he was told to lock my computer account. That left him wondering what was going on. When I got back to my desk, he was there waiting, and asked me what was going on. He was completely blind sided by this one.

Hi and welcome! What we have here is a simple web site of stuff we are interested in, and willing to share with the world.

For example, we have posted a photo gallery of places we have visited - quite a few national parks, state parks and others.

I have information about online racing, I am in a league called GTR Endurance League. I will be writing reviews of the various tracks, hopefully one a month, or thereabouts. I have something like 120 tracks installed.
