Without wifi connectivity, and not AirPrint compatible, it makes it a bit harder to get it to work without hooking it up to a desktop or laptop. Every help article I'm finding only has a USB printer connected to an Airport Base Station from a Mac. http://www.macworld.com/article/2929464/how-to-share-a-printer-using-an-airport-extreme-or-airport-time-capsule.html If the printer could somehow, as CD suggested above, be connected up via ethernet, then you can have the printer be available on your home network, making it available via wireless from your iPhone or iPad. Some time ago, this app called Printer Pro, was free (either via Starbucks or a code I had obtained) and is the one I use to printer to my Canon printer (which does have wifi and is available via IP address on my home network). It's $6.99, which isn't too pricy for being a decent third party printing app. https://readdle.com/products/printerpro

As a stand alone app and no need to sync to anything but iCloud (or Dropbox), the 1Password app is still a solid choice. And it's free (with option for in-app purchase to cover more advanced options than just password functions)

I've been a 1Password user for the last 7 years. It used to be paid, but there's been a free version available that does basic password functions. I know LastPass is now free for the full product, but I've only used it on a Windows computer. For syncing between Mac and iPhone, 1Password is pretty solid. The "ouch" is the cost for the Mac version (I think it's $50 - I paid $20 years ago and the free upgrades have been happening every time without asking for more money).

The blue and white from last week's made me think it was something Cubs related. This week's... it's a cover to a bench. That's my best guess.

Very happy to read this. With various blog posts and Twitter posts between us, I know your lack of like for the Black Album. So when I hear you liking Hardwired, this is music to my ears. Literally. I'm really liking this album a lot. I'm 5 listens in since I bought the 3 CD set on Friday and it's nothing short of great. My next Music Monday post on my blog will go into more detail.

As I commented on the finished photo you posted on IG, seeing all of the photos from start to finish shows this project was well executed.

No toy can fit inside that container. As for this week, the colors and marking look like some like of giraffe toy.

No apologies needed to share such a great pic of Nathan in multiple places. Proud papa.

You are right. Kicking myself. This week, a plastic container to hold toys.

I remember a blog post or Instagram photo of the table and getting excited to see the finished project. Awesome job. A happy boy.

Now your pray comment on my blog post makes sense. For me, it will be to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But more so, I'm hoping that there is a remote chance we are wrong about him. Trump trumping those who voted for him and support him. That would be the ultimate coup.

Is that a sticker you found or a cool Photoshop edit?

Glad to hear gummy bear was an acceptable answer. I've never seen a gummy lobster. Will have to look for them at Trader Joe's. As for this week, I'm not sure. Something with a plastic clip? The gray part looking like a turntable.

When I saw that tweet, I knew you would be excited to hear that news. The updated release date for the album is January 27th. As a side note, Japandroids was the first live club show my daughter went to as a 21 year old.

Nice collaboration. I can't blame Nathan for being grossed out by the pumpkin slime. But roasted pumpkin seeds are yummy.

When you drive that much in one sitting, you tend to see things and your mind starts making it's own conclusions. On a non-cuckoo note, that's awesome to see all of those wind turbines.

Nice photos. I hope the Cubs can pull out 3 more wins.

Wow. Another Charge bites the dust. My wife's first Charge started breaking and she gave it to her granddaughter. I gave her my Charge after going back to a One (her previous One). Now her Charge is starting to wear out like what yours is doing. She's expressed interest in the Flex 2 or the Alta.

Most likely cause the Angels and Dodgers are both called Los Angeles (the Angels used to be called California Angels and Anaheim Angels in previous years - yeah, it's bothersome to this long time fan)

I'm an Angels fan, so it's all good. I went to more Angles games (at least 50) over the years than I have Dodger games (maybe 5 games total since I was 6 years old)

Yeah, seems so very long ago, yet not that long ago at the same time. Sad to know he's gone. To be honest, things haven't been quite the same. A lot of good still comes out of Apple and Tim Cook does a great job, but that visionary of Steve was what made things really cool.

Yeah, that's pretty real looking. An interesting reflection like object or figure.
