Update on post Navy life

Posted by Thomas Weaver on Wednesday, April 28, 2010, In : Randomness 
So since getting out of the navy life has been pretty busy. I have filed for unemployment and applied for numerous jobs. I have taken a test for a job at DuPont.

But the thing that has lifted the most weight off my shoulders is yesterday I had my interview with DuPont. There was 3 applicants and we got a tour of the facility followed by a panel interview. This morning I w...

Posted by Thomas Weaver on Thursday, December 10, 2009, In : Bonsai 
I just finished setting up a homebrew automatic watering system for my bonsai tree. I am now seeing how long one small Arrowhead bottle of water will last.

The setup is job a bottle hanging upside-down  above the tree with a short length of rope going from a small hole in the bottle cap down to the tree. So far it is going pretty slow but I have to...

About Me


Hmmm. I am(was) a sailor in the US navy but I am also one of the few sailors that can actually sail a sailboat since I have one of those. I am no longer in the navy but I will leave the last line there to get the veteran vote. I now work at Dupont as a Power control room operator. The biggest hobby of mine at the present time is picking locks and I am slowly getting better at it. I am currently looking for materials to build my own welder to teach myself how to weld. I am married to Crystal and we have one daughter and we are having a son soon (or if you read this after Januaryish 2011 we a son). Yeah not much to say.
