I love my Hill Topper electric bike kit

I just got my Hill Topper electric bike kit. This is a drop-in replacement for the front wheel of just about any bicycle. The hub of the wheel is an electric motor that plugs into a battery (I opted for the lightweight lithium option). It is also connected to a button that you attach to your handlebars. Hold the button down and the motor will help spin the wheel (but you should keep pedaling)....

We moved to Texas!

We moved to Texas!

Becca and I finally bought a house! We’ve moved to San Antonio in the far north central area last Tuesday, in the Bulverde Village subdivision. We think the location is phenomenal: 15 minutes from the San Antonio temple, 2 minutes to a Super Target, 15 minutes to church, 20 minutes to a major airport, 15 minutes to two different malls, and to top it all off we are on the end of a nice...

Unfortunately, that isn’t a very healthy lifestyle, and I realize I need to start exercising or I’m going to have to start asking my wife to open jars for me. My solution to this issue is to tie my exercises to the health of my business. I’m still thinking through all the...

2011 Goal Update (December)

This is my twelfth monthly report on how I’m doing with my goals for 2011: Build a dining room table. Build a piano keyboard desk. Build something. I know what I want to build. I have the plans. I have the shopping list. But, sadly, I didn’t have/take the time to do this. Launch twelve new websites. I failed. My December website was bigger than I could finish in a month. Okay that...
