Aluminum repair rod website upgraded

Aluminum repair rod website upgraded
I have been so busy over the last few years that my websites have really suffered. My blog has not seen any updates of my family and almost every website has been untouched. The Hidden Lair and Quality Home Locator have been growing so fast, it has taken every bit of our time to keep up.  Dustin is stationed in Japan, Devin is living in Kansas working at Cerner, Jacob is about to finish diesel school, Jessikah will be driving this year, and the younger boys, Derrick and Connor, are both in Jr High.  Dustin is not in this most recent family photo due to his station to Japan.    We are very proud of the service he is giving to all of us, but having him away is hard.  Jessikah has been babysitting more lately and has started her own Facebook page for babysitting.   Derrick Jr. has been helping out at The Hidden Lair which has been a big help to Andy and Jesse.

2017 is going to be the year of upgrades and improvements. I have several new eCommerce stores that will be launching this coming year as well as all the current websites will be upgraded. I’m starting with Alumaloy, one of my alloy websites, which will be the first of several alloys to get an upgrade.  I even have a few new alloys that will launch this year.  I plan to also upgrade my other sites like Quality Home Locator which should go live in the next month.  Quality Home Locator will get virtual tours, updated photos, and floor plans for each house.  The design will also undergo a very dramatic change, but the logo will stay the same.   Bradshaw Consulting, Inc. and Hostexa will also get a full upgrade in the next couple of months.  While all the changes will get an extensive feature upgrade we are not sure how drastic the design will change on each site.

2012 Yearly Pumpkin Carving

2012 Yearly Pumpkin Carving

I just now realized I never published this blog and it has been sitting in my draft section since October.  Every year Carmen’s family does a Pumpkin carving and last year we did the 2011 pumpkin carving at our house.  However, his year it was done at Eric’s house.  I look forward to doing this every year.  It is nice to be part of a family tradition.  It ended up being dark once all the pumpkins were carved so we took the picture inside.

 

My Bear and Wolf scouts!

My Bear and Wolf scouts!
My boys are cub scouts in pack 43 here in Mt Zion and right now is rank advancement time.  I am proud to announce that Derrick has just earned his Bear badge which includes his whittling chip and at the next pack meeting Connor will earn his Wolf badge!  As part of the celebration the pack invited The Amazing Dudley to the pack meeting and he is truly amazing!  I have known Justin Dudley for awhile and I would recommend him for any kid event!  He has been entertaining kids in our community for 20 years now.
