Paul, he’s a bit of the (conservative) misfit over at The Verge but I like him well enough because he usually has valid points, good writing, tends to make me laugh, and on their podcast….he’s the dude that speaks most like me. Long pauses, umm’s, and a lot of thinking before he speaks. He’s quitting [...]
“Me, my life got so much better from watching TV less. As a result, I had enough time to invent TV-B-Gone®! My idea was to give others a similar chance – so I created a fun way to get the message out there that turning a TV on or off really is a choice. Anywhere, [...]
I’m not proud of this. While cleaning up old pictures on my phone, I found an unusually high concentration of food photos. First step is acknowledging the problem.

It turned out to not have the shape I’d intended, but the result reminds me of a skull from a movie, video game, or something I’ve seen before…but [...]
I love taking pictures of the clouds and the sky, but this time these clouds are carrying my kids. The plane, and the gracious pilot that volunteered his time had a little something to do with it as well. Hopefully a short and fun flight they will remember.
