2006 TGB Scooter for Sale

:: Tags: For Sale

My wife has finally decided that she no longer has a use for her 2006 TGB Sunset 440 Scooter, so it is with much pleasure that I am posting this item for sale, not only on my blog, but also on the vehicle trader ads. She originally bought it brand new in 2006 after spending several weeks in Bermuda running around the island on one there. Needless to say, darting around the island on a scooter is not the same as navigating major city traffic in downtown DC. I’ve had to do some minor work on it to keep it up and running, but all-in-all it is in really great shape. Photos and detail are below, but I’m sure it will go fast to someone in our local area.

FOR SALE: 2006 TGB Sunset 440 Scooter / 1876 Original Miles – $750 obo
Scooter Spec’s:  49.3 ccm (3.01 cubic inch) / Single cylinder, two-stroke, 5 HP, Oil/Air Cooled Engine. C.D.I Ignition and Electric Start. Street Legal in all 50 States in the USA. Clean ‘Bill of Sale’ & ‘Document of Origin’ in hand.

Journal Posts Are Down!!

:: Tags: Computers, WordPress

I am going to be doing some maintenance on my online journal and websites to try and bring them up to industry standards. Unfortunately this may require that I take the entire server off-line for several weeks while I update the OS and all the modules. I will try to build-up a temporary server to put in place while I rebuild my primary server, but I’m not sure if this is an option yet. I’m still trying to figure out why some of my earlier journal posts (all the ones with library images in them) are not working in single post mode. Stay tuned… more to follow!

: I know it’s been a while, but I’ve finally gotten around to moving my websites and content to a new hosting server that has a current OS. This means that I will be able to start uploading new content and adding the two years of back-dated journal posts that are missing from my blog. I will also be looking into redesigning my entire website to be a little more modern and more compliant with today’s larger than life monitors… more on that to follow.
This past Monday, I pulled the plug on my personal Web Server, which has been up and running and providing excellent service since 2005. The OS had reached end-of-life more than a year ago and I couldn’t update the modules anymore, so it’s time for a major rebuild and fresh OS. I’m still not sure if I’ll put this unit back in service, but it will be nice to know that I have a fresh backup server sitting in the basement should I need it.

July 4th Fireworks

‘Dylan and Julie waiting for the DC fireworks show to start’ – Arlington, VA

Living just minutes from downtown Washington, DC has both it’s advantages and it’s disadvantages. One of the advantages of being so close to the city is having the ability to go to major events like the Capital July 4th Fireworks show which they put on at the mall every year. We’ve gone downtown to see the fireworks on several occasions, but the crowds really aren’t are thing, so most years we just opt to watch them on television.

Another option is to find a tall building in Arlington, just across the river from DC and watch them from the rooftop. This year, since the weather was so clear, we decided at the last minute to drive over to the Ballston Mall parking garage and see if we could see the show from the top parking deck. The fireworks were a long way off, but it was still a good show and it only took us 5 minutes to get home afterwards.

‘Aerial View of the Tucker’s Point Golf Villas & Residence Club’ – Bermuda, HS

We had such a fantastic time at Tucker’s Point this week! The weather was perfect, the food was great and the beaches and pools were clean and warm. I had a chance to take a lot more photos this week and decided to see how my iPhone camera did with some landscape, sunset and evening photography. I’ve posted several of the photos here for your enjoyment, but for all of the pictures from the second half of our spring trip, just use the link below.

Bermuda – Spring 2018

‘Dylan looking out over the ocean at Tucker’s Point Beach Club’ – Bermuda, HS

Last year, for our early summer vacation, we decided to change it up a bit and spent a week at Atlantis in the Bahamas instead of our usual Bermuda home. It’s always nice to try something new from time to time, but we are creatures of habit and if there is one thing I know for sure, it’s how much we love our little island paradise… Bermuda. So once again this year we decided to travel to our favorite getaway spot and home away from home Tucker’s Point Club, Bermuda.

For me this trip is not just another vacation, it also happens to fall on Fathers Day weekend, which makes this little annual trip of ours all the more special. Spending the week with just my wife and son on the beach in one of the most beautiful places on earth is truly the ultimate Fathers Day gift!

Cycling Classic Kids Race

:: Tags: General

As promised, here is a short video of the start of the Arlington Air Force Cycling Classic kids race. It’s totally apparent that the kids race has become a big event here in Clarendon. Because of Dylan’s age, I think he might only be eligible to race in this event for another year or two.

‘Dylan and his friend in the staging area for the AFCC kids race’ – Air Force Cycling Classic, Arlington, VA

Every year the Air Force Cycling Classic comes to Arlington, Virginia and every year my son puts it on top of his list of things to do. Personally I think the main reason he likes the event is because his good friend from across the street does it, but regardless I happy that he chooses to ride in the kids race. This year he will be racing an a new Redline road racing bicycle that was a birthday present from his Uncle Mike… I’m not sure it will make him faster, but it sure is a cool bike. I’ll post a video of the race later when I get a chance.

As we all know, my son Dylan is a huge fan of outdoor adventure camps and ropes course at Go Ape Adventures is one of his favorites. Here are a couple of pictures from Dylan and Haley’s day out at Go Ape.

So guess who just won the NHL Stanley Cup Championship? That’s right… these guys… The Washington Capitals!!! I was born and raised in Northern Virginia and have been a native my whole life, so it should come as no surprise that as a hockey player myself, I’m a life long fan of my hometown team… the Capitals! It feels like I’ve waited a life time for the Caps to find the right chemistry to make a true run at the Cup, but as early as January this year I knew we had something special happening on the ice. Here’s a shout out to all the players, coaches and staff for the Washington Capitals… Congrats Boys!! WE ARE ALL CAPS!!!!

Doug & Julie’s NYC Trip

:: Tags: Evening Out, Family, Travel

‘Julie & I enjoying a nice relaxing train ride to NYC’ – 174 Northeast Regional, Amtrak

This week Julie and I took the train up to the Big Apple for a family business dinner and some meetings the following day. It was a very nice trip and well needed getaway from the normal everyday grind. After a nice dinner with the family at Toro on 10th Avenue, we returned to our hotel (the Conrad) and went up to the roof top bar for drinks. Talk about a nice view… and the cocktails were pretty good too!
