DXCC Honor Roll?

Today I received an email from Hans, PJ4LS in the Netherland Antillies, that he will be confirming our 40 meter CW qso from April 10th.

This will be my 311th confirmed country for DXCC, and should put me on the Honor Roll!

I had mailed a card to him about a month ago, along with $5 to cover postage, which he never received.

Via email, Hans told me he would send out a card confirming our contact, and pay the postage for me! What a great guy. Thanks Hans!

A Free Lunch!

Today I celebrated 15 years of working with WG Holdsworth & Associates and Iron Works magazine as the west coast ad rep, and got a free lunch to boot!

In the photo (left to right) Marcy and Wally Holdsworth, Robbin and I celebrated with a great BBQ lunch at the Dos Lagos center. Our food server even brought out a free chocolate sundae to make it more special.

It was great fun talking about our families, and all the interesting people we've met along the way!

Renovation Update...

At long last we have our bathroom renovation completed. Here are couple of shots of the new granite shower and sink areas. We also replaced the ugly "builders" mirror with a great deal that Robbin found on some wood framed mirrors, plus new sinks and brushed nickle hardware throughout.

Taking showers now is almost like being in a fancy spa!
