I dipped...

Quick and Easy Button Design For about the last six years I have been known in Sandy UT as the Badge and Button Man, my initial self employment when I arrived in the USA for my last great adventure. In that time I have experimented with various programs for designing buttons ~ some intuitive, som...

Lunchtime serendipity A delightful late lunch today at the Pei Wei Asian Diner at 10373 S State Street in Sandy UT. I like shrimp (prawns to me) and they do them nicely with a coconut curry, vegetables and brown rice. It certainly hit the spot with enough leftovers for me to make a great dip late...

Zipping right along there Day 40 of my 100 Day Attack sees me with new habits. Business, health, mental focus are all showing definite signs of improvement.

A rodent's tale As much as I searched my photo library for a suitable graphic for today's blog post I have come up empty. We are in the nature category and a lot of imagination may be needed if you, too, are in unfamiliar territory.  Having been raised in a land of fascinating marsupials where od...

That changing corner lot in Sandy UT The NW corner of 9000 S and State Street in Sandy UT sometimes sits vacant with its surrounding wire fence. Then it can become a hive of seasonal activity. It can be a pumpkin patch at the end of October for Halloween, a tract of "live" Christmas trees during ...

We are certainly enjoying summer in Sandy UT. Sunrise (over the mountains of the Wasath Front) arrives prior to 6am and sunset it not until past 9pm - 15 plus hours of daylight to get everything done in that summer suggests. First and last light makes daytime even longer as late arriving vehicula...

Badge and buttons, buttons and badges... My buttons match my moods and the seasons. You will rarely find me without at least one, on bag, lapel or hat. It depends on the message I'm trying to get across when I choose what to make and what to wear. Like my cards, because I do the manufacturing, I ...

I look for gold, but along the way... Utah is mineral and gem rich. During active prospecting times, gold did not run out ~ people just stopped looking. 19th century writings of prospecting and mining in Utah are a "goldmine " of information, indicating the extent of the wealth. Utah is home to a...

Earthquakes in my life   My readers: you will realize that I may have a strange hobby for a Real Estate Agent. I like to observe earth movements (earthquakes) in my locality.
