By way of celebration of his actual birthday, how about a photo recap of Nathan's previous year? Happy birthday, little man. Continue reading

I was really worried about last week's Macro Monday challenge photo. I literally had someone guess it correctly within a minute of posting. But then no one else got it. Yup. A barrette. Not so tough, was it? How about... Continue reading

There are some things we would've done differently but otherwise it was great.

I'm just going to make it simple and give you a bunch of photos from our day. Getting ready for his family birthday celebration in Chicago. Hiding Yondu and skimming frosting. Where's Yondu? A Boy, A Man, and A Fish.... Continue reading

I did something last night I told myself I wasn't going to do. I had convinced myself I didn't want to do. I saw the remade version of It in theaters. I saw the original It years ago and was... Continue reading

I absolutely LOVE Easter eggs so long as they're unobtrusive to the story at hand. In Temple of Doom, when Indy and Willie go into the caverns off her (his?) room, there is a carving on the wall of C-3PO and R2-D2 but it doesn't do anything other than sit there. I guess, technically, that too would pull Earth into the SW canon. How else would the old Indians know if their existence to carve them on the wall. And by eight films, I meant the seven Skywalker saga films to date and Rogue One.

It should be obvious where this Throwback Thursday was taken... el Gran Cañon! This is would be from 1989, I believe, and, from left to right, that's my mom, my brother Brian, and me. Don't you just love our late... Continue reading

As much as I used to dominate in step challenges in the past, this has not been the case so much lately. Despite rolling back my daily step goal by 2,000 steps, I'm not even making that regularly. It used... Continue reading

Sometimes, predictive text can be a source of utter frustration. Other times, it can be a font of unending humor. In case you're not familiar, "predictive text" is that feature whereby you start typing in a search box or some... Continue reading

I did get an alcoholic beverage guess from Marty, but not the right one. But he was still closest. This one was guessed before my touchscreen had even cooled off after posting it. Alas, here it is anyway. See ya... Continue reading

I totally get all that you're saying and agree except on one point... I don't see how the devs can think that this would be a safe or non-dissuadable app for people. Playing a synthesizer with keyboard on a phone? That *needs* a demo version. I can see that functionality creating the proverbial line in the sand that pushes one group to use it if they have no full size choice and another audience to swear it off completely and then curse about wasting $20 to figure out how bad it is. Make sense?

I don't see them going anywhere short of death. Speaking of, good to see you're still alive!

Katie and I tackled one of those lingering monsters around the house today... the attic. We didn't do the whole thing, but we pulled out about a dozen containers and boxes and put back about four of them. The biggest... Continue reading

It really drives me nuts when I see this... Yes, that's an synthesizer app for iPhone by Korg and it costs $20. It's been marked down by 33% so the actual price is $30. And there are still in-app purchases... Continue reading
