This is a simplified version of our website which I put on-line in mid-April, 2020.
Hi! We're Rick and Mei-O (pronounced Mayo,
appropriately enough, just like the Mayo Clinic) Shabsin from Rochester, Minnesota,
(home of the Mayo Clinic). We maintain this website just for fun, using only a simple editor, Photoshop,
a digital camera (nowadays, usually my Google Pixel phone), and a scanner. It's served off a DigitalOcean
On August 2, 2013, I retired from Celestica, a global technology services company headquartered in Toronto,
Canada, where I worked at their Rochester, Minnesota, site as a Software Engineer/Senior Application Developer.
After 29 and a half years of designing and coding manufacturing and engineering-related applications, I plan
to remain retired! Since I've been retired, I've done a bunch of volunteer work, including my favorite project,
being the stage manager
for the Rochester Symphony Orchestra and Chorale.
On March 31, 2020, after 17 years, Mei-O retired from her Rochester Public School District job in
Student Nutrition Services at
Sunset Terrace Elementary School.
