I had planned to wait a while before upgrading to iOS7, but decided to be an early adopter this time around. Working well so far on my 4S. The only confusing thing is all the new alert tones – half the time, I don’t know what my phone is trying to tell me!
The Flashlight of Thor. What Thor would wield if, you know, it was dark. And his lightning was on the fritz.

Broken knife. Not an awesome thing to find in the dishwasher.
I’ve posted a couple of pics online lately with public spelling mistakes. But this is, by far, the funniest. Enjoy the tournamt!
I am writing this the day that my kids start back to school.
There are a lot of emotions coupled with that event every year. I am amazed how quickly they have grown! They have sprouted over the summer. And as they grow and mature, I cherish our conversations. I’ve known for a while that I would be more acclimated to parenting them as they get older than when they were little – I’m a talker, so talking is how I tend to relate to people, including my kids.
I’m also learning that I’m not one that necessarily longs for or misses the days of their youth. I am enjoying their pre-teen/grade school selves on a deeper level than their early years. Sure, I remember the rocking and cribs and bottles and diapers, and remember them fondly. But I don’t regret their maturing, and pray that our relationship stays the course as Dad gets less and less cool, or whatever word the kids are using in the years to come.
My kids rock!
A few weeks ago, Tony and I were on our way home from open gym for basketball at his school. It has been raining here for a week straight, but there was finally an evening of sunshine.
As we looked to our left, we saw a gorgeous rainbow – just the end of it. I snapped a quick picture of it, and continued on…
A little further down the road, we noticed that it was not simply a segment of the rainbow, but the whole thing was bright and visible. Not only that, but it was a double rainbow. We found a place to pull off the road (along with four or five other cars), and snapped some pictures…
It was so close and so large, I couldn’t shoot the whole thing the standard way, so I took a video of it, and then took panoramas. The one shown here was the one that turned out the best.
I’ve heard it said that, even for professional photographers, the best camera in your arsenal is the one you have with you when you really need it. It really is a valid statement.
I love Aldi. I am a fan. I keep empty grocery bags and exactly one quarter in my car at all times. If you don’t know why, you’ve never been to Aldi. Continue reading
A few months ago, it was announced at the company where I work that one of our vice presidents was leaving, effective immediately. As I was talking with a coworker, the subject came up. I remarked that I was sorry to see him go, and that I really liked him.
Past tense. Continue reading
That’s right. As techie as I am, I have yet to sit down and use a machine running 8.
I haven’t avoided it on purpose, either. Oh sure, I’ve messed with a machine at Best Buy a few times, and I’ve used one briefly at work. Certainly not enough to know my way around the UI.
What does that say for its market saturation?
I use a Mac at home, at my job I use flippin’ XP, and on the couch I use Android (Nexus 7). Don’t feel like I need to change any of those any time soon (well, my work computer isn’t my call anyway, but still…).
Do you use Windows 8? Would your life be any different if it never came out?
