My son Nickolas is a Bear Cub Scout this year.  He is learning to earn his own way in life as well as in Scouting.  I am helping him by posting his request for your support.

Friends and Family,

Did you know you can help me earn my own way in Scouting and support U.S. Troops at the same time? Just click here to make a $30 or $50 Military Product Donation on my behalf; you’ll find the Military Product Donation under Military Donation once you enter the site.

From your purchase, Trail’s End will ship a variety of delicious popcorn treats all over the world to the men and women serving our country. 70% of your purchase will be returned to my council, my unit and my Scout rewards.

Online purchases help us fund fun, educational activities and help more kids experience all the things that make Scouting great.

Here’s that link again:

Thanks for your support,

Nickolas Gothard

As a computer consultant, people are always asking me how to cut down on the number of spam email messages they get. I have seen cases where clients were receiving hundreds of unsolicited messages every day. That makes it very hard sometimes to get anything productive done. As I get a chance, I will post tips for cutting down on spam. Some of them are targeted at reducing the global level of spam, and some will help you directly.

This is a special post just for friends and family.  They tore down the house yesterday.  It sat empty for way too long and it was time to get rid of it before it became a hazard.

I intended to get some better footage, but I left the good camera in Mama’s car so I shot this little clip with my Blackjack II cell phone.  The video is jerky, but it is still cool to see just how easy that Komatsu PC160 wipes it out. Continue reading »

It does not matter if you support the war or not, everyone supports the men and women serving over there.  XEROX has given us a very easy way to say thanks this holiday season.

Just use the widget below to send a thank you card.  This is not an electronic card.  XEROX is actually going to print these thank you cards and mail them to our troops!  There is no cost to you.  All it takes is a minute to send your thanks to our troops overseas.

These soldiers will not get to spend the holidays with their families.  They have chosen instead to protect you and your loved ones while you enjoy your holiday festivities.

You have an extra two minutes to thank them for their dedication; I know you do!  Just use this widget and do it!  Then send all your friends and family here.  Then let your kids send their own thank you cards.

Make a difference in the life of a soldier with just a few clicks of your mouse right now!
