Site Back Up

by on Jul.12, 2009, under admin

Well, it’s been an interesting couple of days.

I got home from work on Wednesday, and then the next day I was playing slot spiele to experience the thrill of money gambling, and was checking my email.  There was a note from my web hosting service saying that my site had been locked for using too much bandwidth.  I thought this was a little odd, in that they advertise unlimited bandwidth and storage.

Site Rebuild Complete

by on Jan.24, 2009, under admin

We have now moved all posts from out old site to this new one. The task was a little bigger than I originally thought it might be, with over 1200 pages created on the new site.

Anyway, you can now find everything that was on the old site here.

There are several ways to get around on the new site.
You can use the Page menus at the top of every page:

Rearranged Website

by on Jan.07, 2009, under admin

I’ve been going through all of the posts and resetting their dates to be closer to the date they were actually last touched on the old web site. I’ll keep adding more posts until I get all caught up…

Started another two blogs today…

by on Dec.31, 2008, under admin

Since my web hosting service allows unlimited domains on my server, I decided to start two more blogs today.

www.wb0smx.net is where I can place my Ham Radio related posts.
www.rdpecken.com is where I can put our family, general, non-ranch posts.

This will allow us to keep the focus of each blog tight, and not get too far off the subject on a particular blog.
Of course, if we happen to be doing a family ham radio event at the ranch, I may cross-post at times!

Moving To A New Home…

by on Dec.28, 2008, under admin

I have been looking forward to sharing this post with you because it’s been so exciting and so many of you have been following our journey since I shared that we had put our house on the market last year. So today I’m sharing a little behind-the-scenes story of our move & new house thanks to the local long distance movers!

The way things worked out is truly amazing, oddly coincidental, and I’m still pinching myself and thanking the big man upstairs for everything falling into place the way it did. Thankfully my best friend recommended me Fox Removals a company that can help you ease the moving process.

You see, we put our house on the market last year. LAST YEAR!!!! We put it on the market a little too late I believe, just as buying season was tapering down (at least that’s what we kept telling ourselves). There were a few tours, our realtor did many open houses, but there just wasn’t any interest.

Well, the months kept on rolling by, and nothing. It was very disheartening. Some of the reasons we were told our house wasn’t selling (makes sense, but still):

lso, I was beginning to get a little anxious (ok fine, maybe a little more than ‘a little’) about where we would put the baby and baby stuff. We literally had nothing for the baby and I didn’t want to buy stuff because we wanted to MOVE! I wanted to NEST (<- it’s a real thing, I wanted to make a baby room and kept freaking out that the baby was going to be kept in a dresser drawer because we wouldn’t have anything ready).

Then, FINALLY, after one tour we got an offer, and after a few days because nothing is easy when selling or buying a house, we had an accepted offer. Then came the always nerve wracking inspection, appraisal, and paperwork.

With the closing date coming up in a month on our current living space, we now were going to look for a house. Previously we had been looking online, but not in person, because in the areas we wanted to move, the houses would sell so fast that our little hopes kept getting crushed.
