I like the Siri watch face in WatchOS 4, as it normally shows my upcoming calendar appointments, but I don’t have anything, it shows a cute message like this:
Simple article to point out how to get around Chrome’s error page when viewing an HTTPS site that doesn’t have a valid SSL security.
badidea on the page, and the site will load.
I’ve been giving the Firefox Focus browser app a try on my iPhone to have a more private experience while browsing the web.
Hopefully, I’ll see less ads (which are always blocked) and the sites will load quicker.
I’ve had the same Gravatar online for the past 5+ years and figured it was time to have some new headshots taken.
Here are the three that Jen took and I’ll be updating all my social profiles as I have time.
Another neat new feature from WordPress.com
Google Photos is one of the most popular ways of storing and sharing photos online. WordPress.com is one of the most popular ways to blog. Wouldn’t it be great if they played well together — if you could use photos you’ve uploaded to Google on your site?
We thought so, too: starting today, you can browse, search, and copy photos from your Google account right from your blog posts and pages. Introducing: photos from Google!

Here is a slow motion video of someone splashing me in the pool on vacation.
Today I went on a hike with some colleagues up Blackcomb Ascent.
> The Blackcomb Ascent Trails are three interconnected uphill hiking trails that meander through beautiful old growth coastal rain forest terrain from Whistler’s valley bottom to the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain. Upon completion, the trails will travel a total of 6.1km with a total elevation gain of 1,200 metres.
It was definitely one of the hardest hikes I’ve ever done, but the views were worth it!
We left the hotel at 5:15am and started our journey towards Atlanta. Melody was able to get our flight changed to be a day earlier, but we had to drive to the airport.
The journey should take about 6.5 hours, but with all of the evacuees heading out at the same time, we got there in 11.5 hours. We ended up taking alternative routes the whole way there so we didn’t get stuck in gridlocked traffic.
We also stopped four times for gas/bathrooms.
The weirdest thing I did today was sell at blender on Craigslist at my daughter’s swimming lessons.
I even had to plug it in in front of other parents to demo that it worked 😂
I woke up to an email from Delta letting me know they upgraded the first leg of my journey home to first class.
I’m pretending that they think I’m extra special and will get upgraded on every flight from now on. 😂
I barely use social media, but I’m hearing all kinds of things about this upcoming eclipse on Monday.
- Overheard someone at church say that their school is taking a calamity day on Monday due to the eclipse
- Our babysitter mentioned using a cereal box to make the viewing lens
- Someone in Dayton bought all of the eclipse glasses from Kroger stores and is selling them out of random parking lots around the city
- I’ve read an article about how people regret looking directly at the sun at one of the eclipses in the 1970s and now I’m paranoid that when I see a fuzzy spot in my eye I’ve somehow sunburnt my eye
- My wife is telling me that my plan of using a welding helmet is not safe enough to look directly at the sun
- What takes the cake is that my Nest Thermostat wanted to know if I wanted to participate in Eclipse Rush Hour to save energy
Maybe it will be cloudy on Monday and all this hype will be for naught.
I’ve been working this month on a few CrossFit goals and I’m making good progress on handstand pushups.
Push Ups – been working on these sporadically. Probably could get 30 straight (in one set only)
Handstand push ups – I got six unbroken today, which is well on my way to my goal of 10 straight
Handstand walk – blah. This one is hard. I have a hard time committing to the handstand and usually fall back on my feet.
Muscle Ups – I did a ring MU with a four pound medicine ball between my feet, so I’m definitely getting stronger. Tomorrow’s WOD had 5-4-3-2-1 of muscle ups and I’m going to try to go unbroken.
