10th Anniversary Giveaway!

On April 30th, it will be ten years since the "W2LJ - QRP - Do More With Less" blog was born.

In appreciation for all who read this blog, I am going to give something away to one lucky reader. I have a new, mint condition, unused, complete sheet of fifty United States Amateur Radio stamps, issued in 1964 on the 50th Anniversary of the ARRL - Scott #1260. I am going to have the sheet matted and framed - ready for display on some deserving shack wall. All I ask is that you send an e-mail to w2lj@arrl.net - entitled "Blog Anniversary Giveaway". Include your name, call sign and mailing address.

Any Amateur Radio op worldwide can enter. I will package and ship the framed stamps to any destination that the United States Post Office will accept.

The names and call signs will be loaded into a software program such as RandomPicker on April 30th and a winner will be determined. The winner will be announced here, and then the framed stamps will be posted.

Good luck, and thank you for reading!

Turning the page

Two weeks ago, I hit a milestone on the "road we call life". I hit the big Five-Oh.

Yep, I'm 50 now. Officially middle aged. Only 5 years from being eligible to join the AARP and only some 15 or 20 years away from retirement.

No K3 to commemorate the event. Harumpff!

Wow, there are a lot of us out there. I am turning 49 next month, and then next year, 50.....

Hey Larry, if it makes you feel any better, I turn the big two-six this year. In four years, I'll be THIRTY! GAH!

The other day, Denise pointed out I need to start wearing a hat when I mow the yard. I've thinned out to the point of getting a sunburnt head. I feel old.

Um, Larry, maybe you didn't really want to know this, but you can join the AARP at 50. I hit the five-oh last October, so I'm now officially, um, old.
But it's not so bad, other than the body starting to fall apart.
