About Me

Welcome to my Blog!

I'm Dave Eaglesham, a recently retired person, with nothing better to do than try new things and express my opinion about them.


My interests include astronomy, woodworking, photography, camping, fishing and travel. As I prepared for retirement, and since my retirement, I've been frequently asked if I will find enough to keep me busy. Based upon my list of interests, what do you think?

I haven't been in my observatory for some time now. I think it has been over 6 months since I finished installing my new pier. It seemed like whenever I found time to head out and get everything aligned, the weather wouldn't cooperate.

Once again I am building a new web page. I neglected my previous web page for so long that the Joomla software became outdated and hard to update, Plus, in my experimenting over the years I installed too many extensions that were not supported by their developers. That made it very difficult to filter out the junk that had accumulated. So as a result, my new page.

The template is a design I created using a program called Artisteer. Most web design "experts" would likely scoff at my use of Artisteer, but I find it an easy way to start with a basic template and modify it as I go. Plus, it allows me to keep it simple.
