Log joinery is scribed and tight using a “trade secret” method that uses no bolts, pins or screws! Incredibly strong.

-Reflections of Time-Photography -


“I love what I do.”

In 2004, I moved with my family to Bend, Oregon to pursue a better quality of life. In doing so, I’ve gained the opportunity to achieve my dream of becoming a portrait photographer.

I have always had an interest in picture taking. I’ve studied photography in college and have assisted with professional wedding photography – but mostly I am self-taught.

After the birth of my child, I truly realized my passion for capturing all those special moments in time. I love what I do – and I try to make that feeling obvious in my work and with my clients.

Supervised Fuels



FUEL IS ONE OF THE MOST POLITICIZED, MANIPULATED, HIGHLY VOLATILE COMMODITIES IN THE WORLD!


While we have no control over the price of oil, we DO HAVE control over your company’s aggregate fuel cost……

What effects aggregate fuel costs??????

Let’s start with slippage brought about by not having the right controls in place!

As the price of fuel increases, people are becoming more brazen in stealing fuel from employers!

Lessons from the field!

A Jacksonville, FL man who used to work at the Salvation Army is accused of helping himself to nearly $10,000 in gasoline on the charity's gas card. Keith Williams, 39, was arrested on Wednesday and accused of employee theft. According to the police report, he admitted to using the Salvation Army's fleet card to pump gas at various Gate stations around town into the tanks of people he met who were willing to pay him half the price on pump in cash.

A former police officer (not local to Bend) has been sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay more than $2,200 in restitution for using a government-issued gasoline card to buy fuel for his personal vehicle. Court records say he used it more than 150 times between August 2006 and March 2007. He was only caught after a manager noticed incorrect odometer readings for the card.

The City of Richmond VA recently concluded an internal audit in 2007 that revealed some startling facts. Apparently oversight of Richmond's government vehicle fleet is so lax that someone charged almost 45 gallons of gasoline for a car with a 16-gallon tank. That's just one of 645 instances in which someone pumped more gas at public expense than the vehicle could hold.

What could this be costing a business???


According to the National Association of Fleet Administrators, slippage is between 10 and 15% for businesses who do not have a properly controlled fuel purchasing system like that of Supervised Fuels!
