Power’s Back On

Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted to my blog. Sorry, things have been crazy around here with all of the girl’s sports practices games and social events, Leigh and I haven’t had a chance to catch our breath. We had a pretty strong storm go through Rhode Island and Southern New England on Sunday night (10/29/17) with 50mph winds and with a strong gust of 80mph at Conimicut Point in Warwick, RI.  There was quite a bit of storm damage, mainly to trees.  With this said, power was…

It Doesn’t Get Much Prettier Than This

Well… It’s been a while since I have posted a blog here. Between work and family, it has been incredibly busy and I have procrastinated writing a post, my bad. I have started a quest to shed the extra pounds that I have been carrying for these many years.

This is April, Right?

It is April isn’t it?  My calendar says that it is Spring.  We woke this morning to 6″ of heavy wet snow here (only 1″ was predicted.).  The Weathermen are also predicting another 3-5″ of snow for Monday morning (4/4/16).  I know that I really shouldn’t complain after the mild Winter that we had this year, but enough is enough. Local Little Leagues are starting to practice and many have their Opening Days scheduled for this upcoming weekend.  The State of Rhode Island DEM is also opening the 2016 Trout…

It’s Getting Cold

Autumn in New England is like no other place in the world. This is the only place where you have to scrape the ice off of your windshield in the morning, drive to work with the heat on in your car and then on the way home, have to have the air conditioner on… Temperatures greatly vary here during the month of October. One day it can be 70° and then you can wake up to 20° the next morning. We are currently in that trend right now. Last week,…

My Wishlist

For those of you know me, I proudly categorize  myself as a Technogeek.  I love technology.  Anything new and cutting edge, I am interested. On Father’s Day, Leigh and the girls got me a quadcopter with a camera on it.  I had been looking at them, and had wanted one so I was very happy to receive this as a gift.  I started flying it and I instantly got hooked.  This is the coolest gift that I have ever gotten. Here is some of the video that I have taken…
