Here is one neighborhood moose that comes around in the evenings and eats vegetation on our property in Alaska. 2 years ago this moose was just a little one and has grown up so fast.One of the main reasons the moose eat around our property all the time is because we love them, talk to them and never try and hunt them ...

Let's try to Express only Love at this Time ... With everything that's going on around the world it can be very difficult at times not be in a negative mood. All the terrible news about the virus, so many people laid off from their jobs and many people being stuck in their homes for 3-4-5 weeks.I have left 3 wonderful photos (eye candy) for anyone that has been feeling down and out, a little pick me up. And let's try something in these times of despair. Whether we are home, working, shopping, with family or friends, let's try to express (only) Love. I know this can be very difficult with everything that is going on, but let's go out of our way to express Love with everyone, along with praying for everyone around the world. Love and Prayer, what a great combination ...

New Home Building Contractors License by Robert Swetz I am working on new plans for my employment and my future in the next 2-3 years. Because I am getting closer to retirement age I have decided to apply and obtain a Contractors License in the State of Alaska and start building new homes.In the next 2-3 years I will no longer be working as a glazier (glass installer) in the Lower 48. And I may also stop selling real estate in the state of Nevada and let my license go back to the RE Division.When I first start building new homes in Alaska I really don't think they will be as large as the ones in the photos I have on my post. I will start with smaller homes and hopefully work my way up to building large beautiful homes like the ones presented here.I already have a business partner from o...

My wife Lin and I were walking the beaches at Homer Spit in beautiful Alaska and came across some beautiful Alaskan Jade.I grabbed a 15 pound piece of Jade to put at the end of our driveway as were pulling in and out to keep us from driving into the ditch.I know that Jade is "Good Luck" and brings "Great Fortune" so I am very glad we stumbled across these beautiful rocks while we were walking along the beach ;o)

Another one of Vegas Bob's Prayers has been answered ... God really works in mysterious ways when it comes to prayers, and yet another long awaited prayer has been answered at a perfect time in Vegas Bob's life.What is the answered prayer one might ask? Well I am keeping this one a secret and there are only 2 people that know about this one.So that being said never give up on prayers because they might be answered when you least expect it or when they are most needed ;o) "Have a wonderful Sunday everyone"
  I would personally like to wish my wife Lin and all the other mother's around the world a "Happy Mother's Day" My father and mother divorced when I was very young and have never met with my biological mother again. Then my father remarried and in 2010 my stepmother passed away from cancer ... Bless her heartSo for now my wife Lin shall be like a mother to me and all the other mothers around the world.Thanks so much for bringing life and populating the planet earth, we couldn't have done it without you ;o)

 Alaska is my second home by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz As much time as I have been spending in Alaska the last 4 years it has become like my second home. In 2016 I spent around 5 months in Alaska followed by several weeks and months starting in 2014 until 2018.I have several investment properties in Alaska and just can't seem to get enough of it's beauty, fresh air, and look forward to my next visit.Living and working in the Bay Area in Northern California with all the people and traffic, it gets very stressful.

Beauty within Beauty in Homer Alaska ... My wife and I have been traveling around Alaska now for 4 years and Homer is by far our favorite place to visit and stay.When ever we come into town we always take a drive to Homer Spit to walk around, eat lunch and sometimes even go on a charter fishing for halibut.And when were not at Homer Spit then we are always driving along the bluffs looking at vacant land and taking in the Beauty of Homer and the bay. Well there is this certain area along the bluff where I always have to get out to take a look and snap some photos.

As I was standing there my wife walked only a few steps further...
