We’re here to provide reviews of products and services that we feel bring value to the community.

OK, so what’s been happening with us?

As you know we founded Code Amber back in 2002 to bring awareness to the Amber Alert system. At the time there were Amber Alerts in only 13 states and hardly anyone knew anything about Amber Alerts or what they were for and how it works.

That was then and this is now.

The Amber Alert system has matured to the point where not only do all 50 States have them but Puerto Rico, Guam and several other countries now have robust Amber Alert Systems.

Our work with Amber Alert is done.

And that’s a good thing.

The emotional and physical toll of dealing with some many horrific tragedies involving children really did a number on me and Paula. I ended up in the hospital for three weeks and I almost did not get out alive. I did though and now, after a couple of years of recovery, Paula and I are off to new adventures.

We now live in Florence on the Oregon coast. The header image is a place called Thor’s Well near Cape Perpetua north of Florence.


This is a video of 50 Foot surf just south of Sunset Bay. It’s a big seal rookery when it’s not getting pounded. You can actually see one high up on the left end of the big rock. Watch full screen if you can.


This is the same day but I shot it from a little farther south looking north to the big rock. Both videos were take with my iPhone.

We hope you will come along!

Please feel free to recommend products and services for us to review.

Thank You,

The Big Ralph
