Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Do the world a favor and give a hug to someone you might not otherwise hug. Show love and peace and understanding and hopefully you will receive it back. For just one day, let's all try to... Continue reading

This happened yesterday... The only thing that worries me is making sure neither I lose the tickets nor Nathan destroys them. Anyone have a safe deposit box they're willing to sublet space in for the next nine months? Continue reading

In preparation for the Foo Fighters-Urge Overkill-Cheap Trick-Naked Raygun quadruple bill next August (I'm ahead of the game here), I thought I'd start to give a listen to Naked Raygun as they are the only band on the lineup with... Continue reading

Last week's Macro Monday yielded some interesting, and very nearly correct, guesses. None that were 100% correct, but very close. For example, I can definitely see a paintbrush or an aglet when I look at this... However, it is actually... Continue reading

We really do live off Katie's iPhone as both our iPads are wifi only. Eventually I'll have to get Nathan to understand why all four devices can't do the same things. Not yet though.

Possibly personal. The trick is converting my old stuff.

So this happened today... I have my brother-in-law, Scott, and sister-in-law, Becca, as well as my niece, Ava, to thank for giving me the opportunity to finally meet my boyhood and teenagehood (?) hero Don Mattingly, Hall of Fame firstbaseman... Continue reading

A week ago, I had my mind completely made up against using Wordpress. I even have a blog post saved in my draft folder justifying my decision. Then something unexpected happened. The IT gods at work gave me unfettered access... Continue reading

2014 is rapidly coming to a close. This means my Macro Monday challenge will also soon be done. I want to continue with a photography challenge in 2015 as I've really enjoyed this one. I think it was so much... Continue reading

That doesn't seem bad at all. Something we might look into down the road. Once we break Nathan of his need to watch video over a data network.

Yeah, we've been aware of throttling for a while but it's never been a concern since Katie uses so little of her data plan. However, this month she has been complaining that basic web processes like loading email are taking forever. We'll see what happens next month.

Katie has been an iPhone user for two years longer than I. She jumped on board with the iPhone 3G back in 2008 when she became highly disillusioned with the other phone options available through AT&T. I point this out... Continue reading

Hey People Magazine! When are you going to make me the cover boy for your Sexiest Men Alive edition? I can be sexy. Really. That Hemsworth hack ain't got nothing on this Thor! Oh well. Maybe next year. Continue reading

Did you look at the post title above and wonder, "What the heck is 'TVOTR'?" About five years ago, I was in that camp as well. I have since, however, been very well indoctrinated into the awesomeness that is TV... Continue reading

I'm not sure what made it different this time. If Nathan was totally into it, yeah. But he was only paying marginal attention.
