All about me



Hi, this page is all about me.  My name is Harold, and that's me with my pickup at the Florence harbor parking lot.  That is the Siuslaw River in the background.   I retired in 1997 after 31 years as a postal worker.   I moved from Florence, Oregon where I made my home for just over 3 years, after spending many years in California.  But now I live in Salem, Oregon  the state capitol.   I decided it was time for a change and with friends, lots of shopping and recreation nearby I feel it was a good move.  In time my website will reflect some changes due to the move.

My computer is an iMac and have been an Apple fan for many years.   Although I know how to use a PC and did so for many years where I worked, I found Apple computers more to my liking.    I am, of course, the webmaster for The Oregon Kid site.  

In addition to computers my other major hobby is photography.  All the pictures on my web site were taken with a Nikon 4300 digital camera.   Taking pictures is the easy part, editing or changing them using Adobe Photoshop Elements take a little more work.   Sometimes you end up compromising with a photo because of the constraints of the Internet.  Photos need to reduced to a small file size so they can load quickly and easily.   So bear with me if some pictures seem a little off. 

Some of my friends have asked me 'why did I create this site'.   I have a great love for Oregon and through my website my friends, family and others can see Oregon from my perspective.   I have been fortunate enough to have traveled a lot over the years.  Many do not get the chance for one reason or another and my website and the Internet allows those to travel at the click of a mouse.

Over time some of the pages on this site will change and a few may disappear.    Occasionally a page may be unavailable for a period of time while it under goes changes.
