Introduction
My career has involved technology and corporate management across the spectrum.  Now I'm taking time to do things I thoroughly enjoy:
  • Genealogy research and instructor
  • Radio - Amateur Extra and VE
  • CERT organizer and instructor
  • Emergency Preparedness instructor
  • Microsoft Certified Instructor
  • Business Management Consultant
  • Church Service and Community Volunteer
Vacations have frequently involved traveling to find old family homesteads, cemeteries and records.

When not delving into dusty old records or enjoying family, I'm often on air in my ham shack.
Bragging rights
Terrific wife and family

Early spring is my favorite time of year.  Here in North America, the land comes back to life after a winter hiatus.  In our locale, we use the Memorial Day Holiday as a marker for the end of the school year, beginning of summer and as a safe date to plant your most delicate flowers and vegetables.

Memorial Day is much more than an excuse to have a BBQ and family fun day in our family however.  We remember our family members and others who served in the military in the protection of freedom and democracy.  #memorialday #military #democracy

"We’re not dealing with reasonable people here, folks. We’re dealing with public school administrators."  

It doesn't matter if the shed was 100% donated or that the girls didn't want one.  Tear it down because they didn't get one too.  ie: Title IX in America.
You’ve probably turned to your significant other and wondered aloud, “Those administrators are morons. There’s no reasonable way a storage shed could violate Title XI.” But we’re not dealing with reasonable people here, folks. We’re dealing with public school administrators.

Walmart's Advanced Vehicle Concept Truck.  Turbine generator, electric motor, carbon fiber trailer.  It's a great application of these technologies.

When writing a #genealogy  personal history, even small events in our lives can bring back a flood of related details that will enhance our life story or those of family members.  

Sometimes, it's the simple memories that are rich with details of smells, sounds, laughter, tears and the tilt of the earth at that moment in time.

Be sure to include questions in your interviews with family members that evoke those nuggets of memory.  
May 1985 doesn't seem that long ago in my mind, although the majority of our family hadn't been born at that point in time. When I pizza am researching our ancestors, I commonly work with dates ranging from hundreds to thousands of years ago. I picture the lives of my ancestors based on my own ...

#genealogy #dna  America is a melting pot: Scientists map genetic fingerprint of colonization in the US - and reveal 'surprising' complexity  
A study led by Oxford University has revealed a 'suprising' degree of variation in the ancestry of modern-day Americans after analysing more than 4,000 DNA samples from 64 populations.

#hamradio   Most ham radio operators are tinkerers by nature.  We build related kits and go boxes to use both for fun and in emergencies.  Finding or creating the 'perfect' design is part of the fun of being and active ham.  

The go box designed by Robert, KC6TYD tops the list in the designs I've studied.   #hamr   #preparedness

+Indrid Cold I'll bet that there are thousands of folks who would be very interested / delighted to hear of your equipment and the ingenuity used to build and operate it with such good success.  Back in the day, most hams were building their sets from 'stuff'.  Enjoy this old MGM video about building equipment from scratch with materials at hand...      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyWlJPNLPf8

May busy month for Oklahoma #hamradio operators.

"With most of Oklahoma’s rivers and lakes running at or close to flood state, Oklahoma’s “ham’s are now watching for floods in addition to serving as storm spotters watching and reporting on severe weather and tornadoes."

Interesting things happen to folks involved in #genealogy research.  Sometimes they even encounter a helpful moose.

Fears of #federal   #martial  law as #military  #special ops set to swarm Southwest and operate undetected among civilians who've been deemed HOSTILE in massive military exercise.  Texas and Utah deemed to be totally hostile to the Federal Government according to the planners of this drill.
Operation Jade Helm will see 1,200 service members including Green Berets and SEALs and special forces from the Air Force and Marines in July.

#Genealogy - Visualize Your Family Heritage Using #RootsMapper 
I've been a fan of RootsMapper since it was first introduced.  Visualizing the native home locations and movements of my ancestors has helped me build a picture of them in my mind.  

It has also helped me plot my genealogy research strategies to find their  records, especially for those who 'hopped the pond'.  Similarities in their immigration processes emerge while viewing and researching their emigratory paths.

RootsMapper is FamilySearch Tree compatible, hence the huge Tree database supports the mapping process.   The app was developed for the Google Chrome browser and functions best in that environment.

 RootsMapper plots up to 10 generations of your ancestry based on the information in FamilySearch Tree.  

Have you used it yet?  Follow the link in the post below, log in to your free FamilySearch Tree account and watch the map grow. 

#genealogy   #rootsmapper   #familysearch   #familysearchtree  
If you've been watching the number of FamilySearch Partners grow over the past year, you know that the partner count has hit an impressive level. One of the favorite partners to help researchers envision the migratory paths of their ancestors is RootsMapper. Simply log in to your FamilySearch ...

Euless, Texas #hamradio operators step up in times of need  "The world’s oldest electronic social medium continues to be most valuable in crises.  "It’s called rag chewing,”  While the hobby is certainly fun, it can become a critical form of communication during disasters, such as tornadoes or floods."

#hamr #hamradio #cert  
A group in Euless has set up shop at the police department.
