epic photo posting skills of peace

what job do you do bro

Haha took 3 attempts and still didn't turn out right.
Im a mechanical engineer, spend most the time designing and making ways to improve all the ageing machinery in the factory. Was a self employed builder for 8 years but recently returned to this line of work for a more stable income as last few years work was thin on the ground

Yes I was pleased with the original photo as I looked tall (I'm really the other bloke not the fat old man in overalls like I said) and posted it and look like a fucking oxo cube instead

A view of what part of the world I live in. And yes I love this ocean even if there are great white sharks and the occasional salty croc in there.

Yup
I thought so because the water looks the same colour as where I live. Both are tropical places.

But on the other side of that coin, I can't get a decent bag of chips, UK style Chinese take away or boil in the bag kippers.

And don't get me started on how long it's been since some fat munter offered to fight me because she thinks I pushed in front of her in the kebab van queue.

It's not all roses.

We live in a suburb of Portland, OR. The tree seen through the skylight is one of two large fir trees in the front yard. Our neighborhood is heavily treed.

The upstairs is a little over 1,000 sq. ft. We closed off the opening between the loft and the downstairs to achieve more privacy and reduce
sound transmission. In the bedroom, we reconfigured the space to include a walk-in closet. The attached bath is a complete redo. This is where the skylight is.

The main floor is just under 2,000 sq. ft. -Too big a house for just my wife and me. The reason for the remodel is that our daughter, her husband and our grandson are now sharing the house with us. It's a big transition for us all. So far, it is working out well.

I will post more photos when there is some progress. The drywall folks are here today. Hopefully, the hardwood floors will go in next week.

Sounds great man, not for everyone, but I would love to have my kids come back and live with me when we're older (providing there's enough space lol).

Sunset from the office, you see the London Eye on the top, You might a spot a little military helicopter on the corner looking like a little fly.

Big Ben, took this one from the car window as I stopped for traffic one Sunday afternoon and the view was clear.
