  1/6/02-rb  Happy New Year!  We partied at my house... had fun, got drunk, oh yeah and I left my job for bigger and better things.  Check it! The site isn't completed yet but it'll give you an idea of what I've been up to.


  11/4/01-rb I thought this was really cool...



  10/15/01 -rb  Through the month of September 2001 I attended an art school called Anderson Ranch.  It was strange to be so far away from home through that tough time in our country's history.  I talked to several friends back here in Seattle while I was away.  They all said I was better off in Aspen Colorado than any place else.  Still, I felt kind of sick sitting in such a beautiful place when there were so many physically and mentally hurting people.  We managed to get things under way at the ranch for the second and third weeks of the class, I ended up really having a wonderful experience, one that I would love to do again.  My instructors Sam and Brad were such a great influence on me, both of them I will never forget.  Check out some of the pictures here


  6/15/01 -rb  ACK!  It's been way too long since I last posted on this thing.  I've been really busy working on getting my business together.  If you hadn't heard I'm opening my own business at the end of this year called Urban Steelworks.  I'm building a page for it right now and trying to figure out where I'm going to locate.  There are a ton more details but that's all I can say for right now, I'll keep you posted as I get closer to the grand opening. 


  3/25/01 -rb  Greetings, I fixed the incorrect picture location on the home page so you can navigate around the site from there. Not that there's much to navigate through, still, I liked the button bar I made and I wanted to use it for something. =)

I've been doing some landscaping on the retaining wall in my front yard.  I'm adding some steps and a walk way to the front door.  It looks like hell now and my neighbors think I'm crazy but when it's done the yard will look a lot better.  You can check out some of the pictures here.


  3/24/01 -rb  If you are actually reading this post you figured out how to access the page.  Umm da... I'm having a problem uploading from work so I can't fix the image problem on the greeting page.

Mir and it's fiery de-orbit.  You can check out the movie here.


  3/17/01 -rb  Living in paradise.  Earthquakes, droughts and a forecast of power shortages are the norm it seems on the west coast of the United States.  I think we really need to get a grip on just how much power we waste each day.  For the most part the power shortages are from the effects of El Niņa, La Niņa and by a major influx of people moving to California, Washington and Oregon.  The weather effects of El Niņa brought a lot of rain to the northwest in 1997; in the following years La Niņa brought heavy rains, and cold temperatures to the southwest while bringing rain shortages around the northwest.  Since Washington, Oregon and Idaho rely mostly on hydroelectric power, the low water levels have driven the power administrations to release a large amount of water in the reservoirs.  To make matters even more depressing this action has worsened the plight of the northwest salmon population, depleting the amount of water in the rivers at the time the salmon spawn.  Just a little reminder that life isn't as good as it seems folks.

It is our responsibility as citizens to conserve, conserve, conserve.  No matter where you are from take a look at your life and see where you can possibly save energy in your household and business.  Seattle City Light has a conservation campaign to conserve 10% of our power over the next year.  Check it out.

Rob <----- gets off his soapbox.

Groovetech has fixed the earthquake video link.


  3/8/01 -rb Umm, did someone say earthquake?  Here in the northwest we experienced a 6.8 magnitude quake on Wednesday, February 28th.  Not much happened at the shop but at my home, a wonderful piece of glasswork fell off of the mantle shattering as it hit the floor.  =(  My heart sank as I walked through the door and didn't see it where I had place it just the week before.

I received an e-mail from Groovetech with a link to their DJ cam when the earthquake hit.  You must have Real Player installed to view it.  Check it out here:  Damn the link doesn't seem to work any longer.  I'll keep it up for a bit and see if the folks over at GT get it fixed.

Oh yeah, Happy Birthday Guram!


  2/9/01 -rb   I've updated the web pages a bit adding some site navigation links should help with finding your way around a bit easier.  Sorry the pages take so long to load up, I don't have enough space to add low resolution photos for the thumbnails to my server.  I might have to have to pick a domain name and get my site hosted at some point.  Anyone have suggestions on a cool service provider?  Also I added another section with more pictures of a biking trip John and I took part in.  You can check them out here.  Finally, I hope to be adding the "Links" and "About" pages soon.

I've been busy in the back yard clearing over grown trees and weeds you can check out the web cam to see a shot.  I don't always have it running but on a nice day like today I'll fire it up.
