Update from the Slacker...

So, I recently got a new cell phone... approximately 3 weeks ago. It is the Samsung Blackjack Check it out below. Now the fun begins... I've downloaded the mobile Google maps and Mobile Live Maps. My bluetooth GPS receiver is on it's way too. The next thing I am looking into it the upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.0. I've found some leaked versions, but I am waiting for the real version.

So I've been testin it out and really like it. It allows me to Sync up and get my work email right on the phone, which is good with upcoming roadtrips. The phone performs flawlessly when out of the state of Maine when you can get a 3G network connection.

Below are some of the different pictures that I have taken from various trips mentioned in the previous post. Pics will include York, ME and Indianapolis, and some furniture that we are looking at.

Overall quality is ok... in low light situations it isn't the greatest. But hey... work is paying for it.

Picture Update from Monhegan

Monhegan, Maine has to be one of the coolest places I've ever been. It is a small island about 10 miles off the coast of Maine. The ferry ride from Port Clyde, ME takes about an hour. Here are some of the pictures for you.

End of Summer already?

Where has this summer gone! I can't believe that we are on the verge of Labor Day already. It only feels like Memorial Day was 2 weeks ago. The weather started changing here in Maine just after my last post. The daytime highs are now in the mid-70's and the evenings in the mid to upper 40's. Fall is in the air.

It's been a busy 2 weeks. The past 2 Saturdays I was DJing weddings. One of the weddings was in Port Clyde, ME which is over 2 hours from my house. It was a good, relaxing, laid back reception. Last weekends wedding was more of a party atmosphere and was only 20 minutes from home.

My Sunday's still consist of diving. I have been underwater at least once, if not twice, a week in the last 15 weeks! That is pretty darn good.

September proves to be another busy month! Labor Day weekend, Saco River weekend, Monhegan Island weekend, Common Ground weekend, and now possibly Vinalhaven weekend. There goes every weekend in Sept.

Stay tuned for more!

Flying By, quiet weekends.

Man... Where has the summer gone. I can't believe it is August already! Summer just felt like it started and now it is almost over!

This weekend was a pretty quiet weekend. Friday night we went to the Thirsty Whale and watched Eric Green perform. Saturday we slept in late, got up, went for breakfast, and then for a hike. We parked cars at opposite ends of the hike. The hike was 3.9 miles from the Tarn, up over Huegonot Head, then Champlain Mtn, down to the Bowl and finally out at Sand Beach. It was a sunny day with very little clouds in the sky. After the hike we got home, showered, went out for dinner and then went to a party. Sunday, diving was cancelled so I got to go home early and fix the motorcycle. I replaced the starter solenoid and now the bike starts like a champ. I also cleaned out my truck and vacumed the interior. After that I tore into the basement. I've got 3/4 of that cleaned.

Today... is the start of another busy week!

CPAP- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. Which means, I have sleep apnea and have a new machine that I have to sleep with each and every night. While it's supposed to help me sleep better, only having it a week is making me feel more tired. The crappy part is they can track the use and if I DO NOT use it, I can lose my drivers license. BS!!!!

Here is the machine and the mask I have to wear.

DJ, Diving, and Craziness!

Wow... this has been a busy summer! Maybe I should just call it Crazy Busy!
My DJ business has been doing very well this summer. 1 wedding in June, 1 in July, and 3 in August. You saw some of the pictures from June in my previous post. This last wedding on July 14 was even better! It was an outdoor event and there were tons of people! They danced until 1 AM when I finally had to shut down the tunes. All in all a great time!

My other hobby of Scuba diving takes place on Sunday's. This past Sunday has made 10 weeks in a row that I've been underwater. IT is a good and relaxing time. Check out this Sea Anemone and me that Mike got pictures of.

That's all for this week!

The Pics

The weekend of the June 23rd, my parents met Emily's parents on the Diver
Ed Cruise.

Wedding, Diving, and the 4th.

Man it has been another busy couple of weeks. This latest round was very interesting.

The weekend of June 29th. I drove to Watkins Glen, NY to DJ a wedding for some close friends of mine. It was one long ass ride. 10.5 hours from my house to the hotel. I realized that I will not do something like that again with proper compensation for my time and travel. The wedding was awesome and everyone had a blast. It was good to catch up with Pete and Jessica since it was almost a year since they left Bar Harbor. The reception was at the Wagner Estate Winery... Finger Lake Region of NY (Wine Country). My travel down was on Thursday the 28th, the wedding was the 29th and then I drove home on the 30th. My friends have a theory about traveling.

"If the drive time exceeds the amount of time stayed at one location, then the trip wasn't worth it."

I agree with my friends on that one, but seeing it was a special occasion I could overlook it.

On that Sunday, July 1st. I went scuba diving with the seals on Little Duck Island. While I actually saw no seals, it was great being underwater.

Monday the 2nd. I started my new after work routing... running on the treadmill. I am trying to get into better shape and control my breathing better for scuba diving. So far so good. I am on week 2 and will be increasing my speed tonight.

On the 4th of July... I got up at 8AM and headed for the starting spot for the annual parade. I marched the 2 mile loop with my friends from Friends of Acadia. It was the start to a long day. After the parade, Emily and I walked around town, had some lunch, met some friends, and then watched the fireworks. We got home just after 11PM that night. All in all a great night.

The rest of the week was fun. Friday night we went to see Robin Williams new movie "License to Wed". It was a good movie with funny parts. On Saturday we headed back in to Bar Harbor. Our friend, Eric Green, was performing at the Thirsty Whale. We watched him and then went home to bed. Sunday was 8 weeks in a row with scuba diving.

Any how... I'll post some pics from all of the events soon.
