Chosen ‘The Best of Denver’ on Consumer News TV!

Chosen to be on ‘The Best of Denver’ on Consumer News TV!

Some of the clients I did work for recently referred my company to be featured on CNTVDENVER.COM and to showcase my company charliescarpentry.com. on cable news.

Since I have been a carpenter/ finish carpenter/ cabinet maker for almost 30 years, I like to share with you a little bit more about my beginnings. My experience really started when I was about 12 years old, and I’ve always been working with my hands building something with wood and have always been mechanically inclined. I built my own soapbox derby car and entered the National derby race 3 years in a row and finished 2nd place the last year I entered! That was so exciting and fun!

I’ve had a few different career changes over the years to include European auto mechanics, to ‘old school’ paste up artwork while working with my brother Dan back in the mid 1970’s. I also owned another company in the 1980’s performing property maintenance & management, then on to working residential and commercial construction, framing houses to building commercial buildings with large construction companies.

After moving from Southern California back to the Midwest in the early 1990’s, I started working in cabinet shops which has become a real passion of mine. Starting off as the low man on the totem pole to managing 40 people building cabinets, reading blueprints, staffing large building projects, also installing cabinets on multi-million-dollar homes in Aspen, Vail, and all along the front range in Colorado.

I was fortunate to work for a large cabinet company in Fort Collins that won the contract to build all the cabinets, locker rooms, and woodwork at the Broncos stadium and the Pepsi Center in downtown Denver.

In summary, it has been a great career as a cabinet maker! Starting from the ground level up to management, to owning and running my own business. Finally, I started Charlie’s Carpentry in the early 2000’s. The best advice I could give anyone looking to go out on their own is follow your dreams and don’t ever give up.

There’s nothing hard about doing anything except just doing it! That was some wise advice from my mom, Katie Lennon.

Good luck on acquiring your dreams!

  • (Best Way): Go to this link –> Submit my Post
  • Articles/Posts: Click on your member photo –> then click on the link on the left side called ‘Article’ –> look at the new menu above –> Post here.
  • Quick comments: can be posted in the ‘Latest Activity’ area –> go to the sub-menu on the header bar link called InterPlan | Base-Camp –> Latest Activity –> Post here.


Yes! Please do! The idea is that we can all ‘stay in touch’ privately and securely!

Many of us get married or have a ‘serious’ partner (girlfriend or boyfriend), have maiden names, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces and so on… They should ALL be invited!

But, this ‘Family Style | Base-Camp’ is intended for family. It is NOT intended for neighbors, diving buddies, the ‘Just Friends’ groups of people.

If the Custom Car Club, Fly Fishing, Home Brewing or Photography groups need a private ‘Members Only’ website, please get them in touch with @admin ASAP! I can build it for them!

Daily ‘full site’ backups are running from 5 am – 6 am EST everyday. This site is huge! It takes a lot of processing power just to run it but then it takes even more to collect the 1.2 GBs, with all of the databases, settings and code. Then compress it and store it in the cloud. 

As I continue to improve things I will do my best to stream-line the code, media and tweak the server settings for improved performance. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding during those early morning hours!

    • No, not on this ‘family discussion content’ website… There are plenty of other venues to discuss politics with other than on our ‘Family’ website.


  • The reason why you need to verify your mail address is one of the simple security methods to ensure you are not being ‘spoofed’ by someone that is not you trying to pretend to be you.
  • Also, the measure gives me a ‘heads up’ that your are joining the site and I can review your info to be sure you should be a member of our family website.
  • If I did not require this email verification step in the membership sign up process, someone could become a member and start using the website, communicating, view other private member profiles, etc. before I realize whether they are a legitimate family member or not and block them off or not.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Karate level up belt testing and award ceremonies
  • Weekly local softball game schedules
  • Local wine tasting party
  • Superbowl party
  • Bar-B-Que and swimming pool get together
  • Thursday night shoot pool group games

These are just a few ideas. I’m pretty sure you can think of other events that can be listed and promoted and NOT lost in the clutter of other public venues like FB!

No!

This is a private system and it requires ‘Membership’ to get in and participate, communicate and share information between our family.

Security


Here is an abbreviated list of the some of the security measures employed for our protection:

  • SSL / Secure Socket Layers, i.e. https://* versus http://
  • Membership management system for content control
  • Firewall scanning for malware, sql injections, known evil IP addresses, trouble makers and hackers with auto blocking
  • Automatic blocking for ‘abusive’ users and ‘sketchy’ activities
  • reCAPTCHA (both Visible & Invisible)
  • Anti Spam for all messages, posts, bots, crawlers and creeps
  • The site is completely database driven. All content is dynamically built on the fly. (this is not your average html website.)
  • Databases, posts, pages and graphics are encrypted

Okay, I will stop there before you go to sleep – LOL 😉 want more info?

Category: Security

Well, YES & NO! Sorry, but there will always be the possibility of an unwanted intruder, maliciousness and content theft.

Note: As stated in the purpose of this website should be an indication of how I feel about our security and privacy. I am going to do my best to stay on the forefront of security and technology and employ all reasonable measures to that end.

Late night marauder!

Late night marauder!

by | Jul 9, 2021 | Lifestyle, Photos, Stories

When you live in suburbia Colorado… 

I guess you have to prepare yourself for all kinds of wild life. 

Late one night we had this visitor. What a shocker! Obviously after the honey. Needless to say, the bees were pissed and took it out on me getting the hive back together. Fortunately only a few broken parts, but fixable and the hives survived. Came back the next night and knocked one of the hives over again! A teenager, so the wildlife experts said. 

Caught him further in suburbia 5 miles away the next day. What a traveler!

Family Emergency Kit Checklist

Your family may not be together at the time of a disaster so it is important to develop an emergency plan before disaster strikes. The plan should include a communication plan, disaster supplies kit, and an evacuation plan. It is especially important for people with bleeding disorders to have a plan in place in order to ensure that the same level of care is maintained in the event of a disaster.

To develop your family emergency plan, you need to be able to answer the following questions… (See the PDF at the bottom of this post.)

The attached PDF at the bottom of this post is sourced directly from the CDC. You may download and print it.
