What's new? (updated 4-26-16)
A lot of better quality photos are coming this way, with some already posted here, using a Nikon D3300 and macro lens. A great camera for the money that shoots small metallic objects very nicely.
My Facebook business page is gone .. deleted, adios, hasta la vista, sayonara, bon voyage. Initially it was created as a real time extension to the "On the bench" section of this website. That has moved to Instagram where there's much less nonsense and drama. Time is always limited and I'd prefer to be putting it into creating the highest quality cool stuff than monitoring multiple media platforms. Please join me on Instagram by clicking the little button at the top right corner of this home page. Thank-you!

I lost my best and closest friend...
Mila was my whole world. She was full of love and life. She always had to be around people and had to say hello to everyone. I raised her from a pup to be better than I and she was.
