  • Yerf Dog GX150 - Quick rebuild update

    Tuesday, April 18, 2017 - 20:32

    I feel like it's been a month since I've worked on it, but tonight I managed to put the wheels on enough to see what it's going to roughly look like. I have to admit, I'm pretty happy. What an amazing transformation this thing will have undergone when I'm done.

  • First coat of pain on the Spiderbox (Gx150)

    I got the Yerf Dog buggy frame stripped down:

  • Yerf Dog GX150 Spiderbox (3206) - My latest project

    Friday, January 27, 2017 - 09:35

    I picked up a buggy last year so I could give my kids rides around my property. It's the Yerf Dog GX150, model 3206, and was pretty banged up when I got it. Obviously it had taken a few tough hits over it's life. But the price was right, and I knew the kids would love it.

  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Review - Rubbish

    Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 15:43

    I've had my Samsung Galaxy S4 for a few weeks now, and after all the excitement of getting what was supposed to be a game-changer phone I wanted to share some of my thoughts for anyone else looking to get one.

  • The Blue Angels at the Portsmouth Airshow

    2012 Blue Angels Practice at Pease Airforce Base - Portsmouth NH

    Saturday, June 30, 2012 - 16:01

    I got out to watch the Blue Angels practice at the Portsmouth Airshow again. I work on The Pease Tradeport, so it's amazing when the airshow comes around becuase they litterally practice right over my head. It's also pretty cool when they buzz the office, becuase they set off all the car alarms.

  • Hampton Beach Sand Sculpture Picture

    Hampton Beach Sand Sculptures - 2012

    Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 07:28

    I drive up the coast nearly every day and saw this. I had to stop and take a picture. It’s crazy what these people can do with sand. Granted, it's not the same sand found at the beach. From what I gather, tons of this “special” sand is imported for these events.

  • Travellers Guide and Map of the United States

    1840 Phelps & Ensign’s Travellers Map

    Wednesday, August 17, 2011 - 20:22

    This map came out of the attic of a 19th century farmhouse. I personally found it, under a ton of other crap. It was under an eve, and probably not handled in decades. The quality is obviously not great, but the map itself is super-cool.

  • The Morning Buzz - Laura in Indy Car going through Dunks drive-thru

    Indy car pulls up to Dunkin drive-thru?

    Wednesday, July 20, 2011 - 00:00

    I’m driving up the seacoast this morning, listening the The Morning BUZZ as I usually do. They mentioned they had a “street-legal” Indy car in the station parking lot, and it would only be there for a couple of minutes.

  • Finished Stone Wall Basement

    Finishing a Stone Wall Basement – First Room Done

    Monday, February 28, 2011 - 19:25

    I’ve had some people email me questions about my basement project. Specifically, how I decided to frame walls over a stone wall foundation. Well the project is not complete yet, but I have at least one room that is 95% finished.

  • Blue Angels practice for Portsmouth air show

    Blue Angels – Airshow practice right over my head (litterally)

    Friday, August 27, 2010 - 20:23

    This is super cool. The Blue Angels are performing at an airshow this weekend in New Hampshire. Well, for the last couple of days they have been practicing right over my office. I don’t mean “near” my office – I work a third of a mile from the airstrip – they are directly overhead!
