If I remember seeing your IG account, it looks like Katie's account got fixed. Flickr for me is the same. I have all of these photo services and places to put them - iCloud, Google, Flickr, IG... For the most part, I use Photos on my iDevices, but go over to Flickr when I see KevinAZ or Vahid post something over there. I like the immense amount of storage you get on Flickr, but I also get your points with the Yahoo pending sale and their overall mismanagement of their company.

Chex cereal is my guess for this week.

Oh it's pretty bizarre. Those filers are insane. But I like your first few snaps so far. Nathan as a puppy is pretty adorable. I've been on it for a while, but I take breaks from it every so often just cause I forget it's there most of the time.

The last couple of years, it's been injury (plantar fasciitis on my left heel). But before that, it was just how I walked over the years.

I watch all 6 (now 8 going forward once Rogue One gets released on Blu-ray and digital) of the SW movies at least once a year, including EP II and EP III. The story tie in with Anakin/Vader to EP IV is what gives me that edge on how the movie flows. Empire Strikes back gets watched on average, 3 times a year. And I've seen TFA 10+ times since I bought it on Blu-ray and digital.

Should have stayed with Elmo. Now I see there's no eye brows (which are normally part of an Angry Birds character)

Yeah, my thoughts exactly on this play out. C-3PO and R2-D2 are in it for the long haul.

When you have a setup that works, you stick with it.

Love the photos you took. And Nathan's Heart Reaker shirt.

I need to go see this movie really bad so I can post my thoughts.

From the "no surprise here" comments I've left on previous blog posts, my spirit animal is a penguin. I even walk like them sometimes (ask my wife or daughter, they will agree)

Your list is almost identical to my ranking. Replace 6 with 9 and you have my ranking of the SW canon.

Anything with Alan Tudyk in it is awesome. He's done so much over the years.

At first, I thought that was an Elmo shirt Nathan is wearing, but upon closer look, it's an Angry Birds shirt.

As Becky said above (and I mentioned on Twitter), Office Depot is where I got my last 2 bottles of the standard glue (both Elmers and store brand)

Wow. that's a long book. Wishing you lots of luck. And cool on the book reading in January. I'm close to 4 finishing 4 books (been distracted reading, meaning I read a little from each one, chapter at a time).

I'm going to guess Rey is the last Jedi. And I hope the story contains a good amount of intro and lead up to that. Of course, what does this mean for Luke? That's the curious mind here working.

I like this post a lot. My favorite line above "this blog post, for example" I work from home at least 2 days a week now and I have serious distraction issues. My wife is out of the house by 9:30am every morning. I've already got 1 meeting down by then, with an average of 2 more throughout the day. My distractions are thinking I can do something house related for a few mins, to keep me from sitting too long at my home office desk. That happens more often than it should, but I still tend to have better focus at home than at the office (co-workers find all sorts of time and energy to come into my work office often). The screen on my 6S Plus makes using Pages a lot easier. I rarely used it on my 5S and actually removed it because it was so difficult. I don't use an external keyboard on my phone (although I have that same one you have there hooked up to my Apple TV), mostly due to using my MacBook and my iPad Pro 9.7-inch having an external keyboard paired to it.

That label description is confusing. Someone didn't proof the labels much during the clarification process.

Wow. He's absorbing a lot about the villains, with a focus on the Batman series. No surprise here, but the Penguin has always been my favorite villain.

Last week's had me thinking your wings that you made. I love Cool Ranch Doritos. I might have to macro view my food more often now, for a future Macro Monday. This week's is a worn piece of wood, like from a fence or old bench.

Happy Birthday to Katie. I like that TBT shot in Vegas.
