Homestead
Our Homestead

I spent most of my life as an inventor, corporate executive, entrepreneur and high tech engineer. I worked on everything from super secret National Security projects to innovative Silicon Valley high tech devices. I have a lot of the original patents in the field of nanotchnology. At 45 years of age, I got tired of the rat race, and retired. My wife and I moved back to West Texas, where I grew up.

I split my time between being a Missionary, a High School Teacher and a prepper/homesteader.

Over the last ten years we have been building our homestead, and enjoying the peace and joy that comes from a rural lifestyle. This blog is about us sharing some of the things we have learned in developing our homestead.

    1. Small world.

      I have twenty something patents and am always thinking of new ideas. Lately I spend most of my time working with young people, and missions work.

      Thanks for your comment.

  4. Dear Sir,
    While I was searching for something new to learn, I found Arduino, and got very interested in it, specifically to teach the same to my 10 yrs old Son – Alex, who is very much fascinated about the working of Robots.

    While surfing the net for Arduino, I came across your lessons on Arduino and found them very useful and easy for step-by-step learning. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    Then I visited your web-page and felt impressed to know about your thoughts and life, specifically for enjoying the peace and joy that comes from a rural lifestyle in your own homestead.
