Pine Trees in Snow

Like a Squirrel

My theme this year is “improvement” and as a part of that I decided to learn X-code. I rediscovered I am like the squirrel who buries some nuts and then sees other nuts and runs over to them and then forgets where the first pile of nuts are. I have the bad tendency of pushing a button and then doing something else and forgetting what button I pushed

I got up at 6:30 this morning and lugged my laundry over to the laundry room in the freezing cold and dark, still wearing my pajamas with a sweatshirt over them and did my laundry and was finished by 8:30 AM, feeling proud.

I noticed today that the Apple Watch exercise ring is not matching the Workout app I use. It is off by up to a minute. For example this morning I did a quick ten minutes on the elliptical according to the Workout app, but the ring had nine minutes. Does this happen to you? A fix?

Just drank: Beer

Sometimes the best does not win. ]Sometime today I was reminded of the Replay TV I once had in the late 90’s early 2000’s. It was a competitor to the Tivo and in my opinion a better option for the consumer. Unfortunately the things that made it better for the consumer; automatic comercial skipping and the ability to share over the internet are the same things that the media hated and Replay TV was sued out of existence by 2011. Do you remember a piece of hardware or software that was better than what won the battle.

I love walking into a room smelling of oranges

Just drank: Grantham Breakfast Blend Tea

I brought a plane ticket yesterday for a trip to Phoenix, AZ at the end of February and I have been imaginary packing since then. And yes I did pulled the actual suitcase out I will be using. Does anyone else do this? 


I am currently watching Great Performances: Now Here This I am learning so much, like did you know that the varnish that is used on the best violins are aged for up to forty years, or that Bach was influenced by dance music.

Ok I put my Apple TV remote down somewhere and I can’t find it. So if you see it let me know 🤣

Has anyone gone thru one of the Udemy courses, what did you think and would you take another one?

inessential.com my recommendation is to use Ranchero or something else. Do not use NetNewsWire, it would be too confusing @brentsimmons

The 2010 Decade a Time to say Goodbye and Hello In the past decade I said goodbye for the final time to my mother and three Uncles and hello to a great-niece. Sometimes filled with sadness and sometimes with joy the circle of life goes on

2019 Audible Book List and Some Thoughts

  • The Women in White by W. Collins
  • The Iron Kingdom-The Rise and Downfall of Prussia by Christopher Clark
  • Byzantium by Stephen R Lawhead
  • What When Wine by Melanie Avalon
  • A Boy His Dog at the End of the World
  • Collision of Empire by Prit Buttar
  • The Complete Guide to Fasting by Jimmy Moore and Dr Jason Fung
  • The Laid Back Guide to Intermittent Fasting by Kayla Cox
  • Stoicism Collections by Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus — There were a few books that I started but did not finish the first was Under the Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles. I did not enjoy the book because I found the characters annoying and not at all likable, so I stopped reading it. The other book I started but did not finish was Sundown Town a Hidden Dimension by Norman Dietz. I did find the book interesting and very informative, however I was in a rather stressful move when I started to read it and quickly decided the timing was bad a book that made me think. It got put back on the shelf, to be finished at a later time. Altogether I have listen to appoximately 140 hours on Audible. I do not have a specific reading goal for 2020, since the number of books I read is dependent on the length of the individual books.

Currently reading: Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes 📚

Just drank: Cinnamon Honey Infused Latte

Disappointed, Not Surprised

New York Times Ad-tracking-hypocrisy an article by John Gruber on Daring Fireball points out the hypocrisy of the New Times when it comes to ad tracking, altough he does point out we do not know for sure if the Times is doing location tracking. I have to admit I was not surprised by the hypocrisy. a little disappointed yes, surprised no. The thing that caught my eye was the mention that the ad tracking warning that the New York Times issues is at the bottom of each story, which is a little late in my eyes.
