What's New at
After a long hiatus Tim has returned to writing. Why? Because it brings him happiness. A new section under Travel chronicles Tim's "Pursuit of Happiness" that Thomas Jefferson included as an "inalienable right" in the Declaration of Independence.
September 18, 2019 - Browsers like Firefox, Chrome, and others have changed how they display older web pages. As a result, many of Tims Life pages appeared "broken"; they lacked a uniform style, were missing buttons and some images. All of the pages are fixed and should be displayed normally. If you find any that have issues please let me know.
The original 2005/2006 Branford Bike online catalog is back on the web and officially part of Tim's history. Browse the 250+ page catalog to read about what was hot for pro bike riders in 2005. All the original tech articles were preserved.
When Tim started to write articles for his blogging site, TimsLife.com, he created static pages coded in HTML. Gradually the pages were upgraded with new HTML code and are now being converted to static PHP. Php pages load faster, are easier to update, offer greater user interactivity, and are search engine friendly. All the PHP coding was completed as of April 2nd, 2019.

Page 41 of the fire and rebuilding story continues with "Winter is Wonderful in Montana" in the winter of 2009/2010. I wrote this in February of 2013 and will do my best to add more pages before the warm spring weather lures me out of doors and holds me fast until the autumn snowstorms.
I am still alive and doing well! Thank you to all who emailed and asked when the next Tims Life pages were coming. Soon, just after I finish my taxes in early April.
Two years ago I started a new business. At first, I built websites but soon branched into selling books. Business is brisk but snow still blankets the ground here in the high mountains of Montana. So I will have time to add a few new pages to Tims Life and bring everyone up to date. Thanks again for visiting.
