Firing the Laser

Firing the Laser

So Don and I purchased a high quality, American made, 40 Watt laser cutter. I’ve had it about a month now. Back in March, a week or so before the iPad came put I picked up the most boring domain name I have owed so far – iPadLaserEngraving.com. I added minimal content since I didn’t even have the laser yet. Apparently Google likes it when your domain name is the same as a search term. The site received 1000 visits from google searches in April. I’ve now engraved 6 iPads and expect 8 more soon, not counting Don’s.

This would be helpful for individuals who...

Awesome photos from Telluride, Colorado

Awesome photos from Telluride, Colorado

One of my favorite places ever to ski and to visit is a tiny town in the Southwest corner of Colorado called Telluride. I’ve been there four times over the last five years staying around a week each time.  The town is small but very nice to walk around with many places to visit.  You don’t need a car once you are there because you can walk right to the ski lifts.  The gondola offers free transportation to the more modern and built up side of the mountain called Mountain Village. The skiing is a fabulous mix of miles of beginner runs that take half an hour to make it all the way down and tons of lovely expert terrain with enough steeps and trees and bumps to wear anyone out.  Then there is the Hike-To terrain, and even back country access and...
