Update on 31-day journal challenge

In May I began the 31-day journal challenge, to see if I could write in my journal every day and start a new habit. The update on this is I failed miserably on my original goal. Around early June, lots of work travel combined with some personal events just derailed me for a couple of […]

Yesterday vs. Today

I woke up this morning and noticed the world seems to be running just as it was yesterday. Looked at my wife and I love her just as much as I did yesterday. Looked at the church down the road and it seems to operating just as it has been yesterday. Additionally, my faith seems […]

Soldiers in Pine Grove Cemetery

When walking through Pine Grove Cemetery just down the street from my house with my wife and nephew, I came across something I hadn’t noticed before. Thanks to the American Flags next to each one, I discovered a section of soldier graves. I moved in closer: Amazing to look at. Even found a grave of a Medal […]

In Defence Of WordPress

It’s by far the best shave I have had, always close and comfortable, never cutting myself. But what I’m […]

Six years

Today marked six years since I started at Dyn. I should also note that with this day passing, I will also have worked at Dyn twice as long as any other company I have worked for. Although certainly not in the same role…I have had four big changes in my role over the years and […]

Trying on an Apple Watch

A couple of hours ago, I tried on the Apple Watch for the first time at my local Apple Store. The verdict: the 42mm stainless steel version, especially with the leather loop or Milanese Loop, is stunning. The software, although on used briefly, seems very well executed. For the first time in a while, I could […]
