    New Krabi, Thailand Photos Added

    I have added many new photos from our beach resort vacation in Krabi, Thailand to both the Studies of Stuff and Stacks of Stuff and the My Beloved Thailand sections (both are within the Travel Photo Bank). My long summer vacation is almost over . . . I go back to work on Monday . . . but these photos are nice memories for me.  I have attached a couple of sample photos here.

    Race Car Progress

    Well, I was out at my trackside race shop on Tuesday with Khun Mac and his helper for a testing session.  GREAT! All the little gremlins that had plagued my race car for the last couple of months have been repaired . . . and Khun Mac laid on an excellent tune in the MicroTech ECU.  IT RAN GREAT! I hope to be racing this Saturday night!

    There is also progress on the 1UZ V-8 engine build-up.  Go to the RACING PROJECTS BLOG section for more info.

    I spent all day last Friday with a long-handled scrub brush and industrial cleaner getting my shop floor clean! Ugh! My back is still killing me . . . but it looks great with a new coat of industrial sealer on it too. I also tidied up all the work benches and shelves.  I am ready for a new season. 

    News Flash - Sailing Away

    I'm just off of Skyping with my daughter Kirsten in Philadelphia and learned that her partner, Jason, just purchased a 57 foot Nautor Swan sail boat called the "Insurgente".  Wow!, that's a big sail boat.  They will make a few modificaations and upgrades on it then move onto it before taking to the high seas.  Amazing. Congratulations.

    Krabi Vacation

    I am just back from one of the most beautiful places in the world: Krabi, Thailand. An area on the far southwest coast of Thailand dotted with beautiful islands, giant stone obelisks jutting out of the sea, emerald green water, and palm trees.  Oh, and sea food engorgement. Five days was enough! Photos to come.  In the meantime, enjoy a full set of photos from our recent vacation to The Philippines here.

    The Centara Resort is isolated in it's own bay and is only accessible by boat.

    Lovely Krabi, Thailand.

    Sawasdee, indeed!

    Here & There

    Gee . . . having a blog is hard! You have to write things and then post them!  I have been very busy lately . . . and am busy today . . . so I will post only these four photos of what I have been up to in the last two weeks.

    I went to The Philippines for 10 days and had a wonderful time in Manila and the Taal Volcano region. I took some amazing photographs that I have added to a Philippines album in my Travel Photo Blog link.  Here are a couple of pics from the trip for now:Looking down into the actual Taal Volcano crater lake (above).

    I was lucky to have some really excellent light one afternoon at a roadside fruit market.
