Here are some odds and ends projects- a new page started April 2015- under construction
will use pull down tabs for easy access
Creation Windows in the Federated Church (now Waitsfield United Church of Christ)
I conceived this idea, and painted the water window for Murilla’s baptism. I then recruited the Sunday School to paint four windows, and asked the congregation to contribute handprints for the sixth window.
Masonic Lodge Waitsfield Vermont building preservation
I have been involved in various aspects of renovating this 1845 former general store
Acting in Scottish Rite Dramas, and Drama Director for Central Valley
A few photos from various degrees
Or the singing 22nd degree
Moose Lake Club– my grandfather’s 100 year old fishing club in Northern Wisconsin
Rayfield Equipment- VO2 Max Testing

Computer hardware interfaces, software, exhaled air mixing chambers, and spirometers.
Used worldwide in many research applications.
I worked on using soap bubble foam as an insulator and visual curtain inside double pane glass windows. Began as a high school state-level science fair project look at soap bubbles and minimal surfaces. Because water soap foams have moist air inside, I have been looking for a way to produce and control a dry air (better insulator) oil-based foam.
Rick’s Bread- looking for a name for my bakery business.
I started baking with Tassajara Bread Book while in grad school. When Holliday and I got married, a cousin gave us a bread machine as a joke gift. After ten years of bread machines, I graduated to wild yeast hand-made breads, and donated bread to food shelves, community suppers, school events, church coffee hours, Thanksgiving baskets, and other good causes, including my family. I take my baking on vacations and have made bread in our Wisconsin lake cabin, Chautauqua Institute condo, British farmhouse, mother’s beachhouse, and brother’s ski house (8,500 ft altitude). I taught Cub Scouts to bake bread for community service. In 2015, I started selling my bread at a Farmers Market, baking not just for love, but for money. So far it’s OK.
