we're now actively planning a further move out to The Villages.
To that end we're painting the exterior and interior of the house

pages from a reunion with High School friends that happened at the
end of October. I also added some very old photos from a hiking

Roger has finally
admitted to himself that he is retired... and is enjoying it. His
girlfriend, Birgit, keeps him just as busy as ever though. He worked
for WhereNet for 15 months before leaving in April 2008 as WhereNet
was being acquired by Zebra Enterprises.

problems. After a year of being a bum and taking some time to travel
a bit, he went back to consulting for a couple of local engineering
firms. The most significant was WhereNet Corporation where he spent
a total of about 18 month spread out over 3 years. WhereNet builds
a line of high-end RFID tags and triangulation systems to track
them and Roger worked on several different projects that they needed
additional manpower to complete. If you know of opportunities that

You can see
what each of the local family members have been up to here,
but I'll use some space for a few general family comments.
My uncle, Lawrence
Samdahl, died early last year and his wife Jane a short time later.
Some of you have seen Jane's paintings in my home; she was an excellent
artist. Lawrence was almost the baby in the family, second only
to Gordon who died many years ago from complications of diabetes.
It's no secret that aside from my own folks, Lawrence was my favorite
and I miss him tremendously. We shared a love of the mountains and
camping that is becoming more and more rare.
