Best Bay Area Sharpening For Beauty Shears, Barbering Scissors, and Pet Grooming Scissors

I have been sharpening shears in the San Francisco Bay area, and in 14 other states, for almost ten years. I am very experienced with a gentle machine and a top notch process that makes your shears better than they were new. Call me for sharpening today!  I do the sharpening on-site, no need to send your shears away on long vacations. With me, you can have your perfect shears back in just a few minutes.

Unfortunately, in October 2020, Facebook stole my profile page, and wiped out my drone pictures page too. See the link to my article about having my Facebook account permanently banned, and just how damaging this was.

October 2020 Aerial Photography Fall Colors Tour...

I just launched a GoFundMe for my Aerial Photography Fall Colors Tour this month. Please take a moment to look at the GoFundMe page, and if you can sponsor my trip, thank you very much!


I just saw today that one of my favorite games from the Commodore 64, Jumpman, is available online here. Well actually that is my wiki notes page on what I found out about Jumpman. I couldn't get it to play, I need to go back, and try again. Since it is a wiki page I can update my notes at that time.

What is Mobirise

I use Mobirise to edit the more beautiful pages on this site, and I recommend it.  Mobirise is an offline app for Window and Mac to easily create small/medium websites, landing pages, online resumes and portfolios, promo sites for apps, events, services and products.

I have been publishing websites since 1994. Here is an advertisement I ran in 2003: 

 If you don't have a website yet, you need one. Whether it's a website for yourself or your family, or your own business, or just to learn about how to make websites so you can add that skill to your resume, it's fun and educational to create a website. And I would like you to consider my newest web hosting service, Click11. This site offers affordable webhosting plans for all size sites. Every account includes easy domain name mangement, email, web management, and free online web design software. This web design software is very easy to use, and you do not need to install it or buy it! I've created a whole bunch of new websites using only the free online design software from Click11, including:

* Click11, and an Alternate Click11 marketing site,

* Jail.US the first maximum security web lockup,

* sample personal website with mini-bookstore,

* Garnet.US another one of my homes on the web,

* Village.JumpTo.US directory of websites with JumpTo.US web addresses, and more....

I created the first version of many of these sites in less than hour.

Also, with every web hosting package, you get month advanced support, included! Want to call and chat about your web design, or need a little help to improve your site? No problem, my time is included with every package.

And did I mention I am offering free trials? That's right, you can sign up without a credit card to try the system. I am sure you'll like the system, the support, and price. Go and try it today!

This video is from a mission I flew to document a construction crane being used in the construction of a two square block apartment complex in Richmond California.

I am a commercial unmanned aerial vehicle pilot, and I am available to fly for you. Contact me.
