Zach Gage is one of the best game developers on iOS. So it’s no surprise that his recently released version of Sudoku is leaps and bounds better than others. I recommend everything he makes. Download Good Sudoku now.

We had a small party for Rowyn’s Sweet 16 (month) today. We had to miss everything for her first birthday (COVID), so today was a nice makeup. Love my baby girl.

I bought a REC TEC Grill a couple weeks ago online and now every ad I see on social media is for one of their competitors.

It’s exactly 1 week until the Braves opener, assuming we can make it that far without another huge shutdown. I don’t know how the season will look, but it’s nice to just think about having something to watch for a change. ⚾️

I feel like I’ve done this before on micro.blog (or just Hugo), but I’m drawing a blank. In editing templates, if I want something to show only on single posts (not pages), what is the proper syntax? (cc @manton @bix @kaa)

Today, we were able to get the kids out and go downtown for a nice socially distanced lunch. It was hot (110°+ heat index), but we had a good time. And yes, masks were worn.

The closest to perfection pocket knife.

One of Brigsby’s friends just got upset at him for eating too much of her imaginary cake.

I’ve been using HEY Email for a little bit now and decided to susbscribe. I didn’t write this, but here is a great overview why I like it so much.

Decided to go all in with Hey.com. Paid for a year (first year includes lifetime reservation of my email address). I really am impressed so far, but I’m banking on further development as well.

I’ve been using Hey.com email for a few days now. It is actually quite good, but needs a few updates soon. Hopefully this mess with Apple works itself out.

Beginning the process of booking an early 2021 Hawaii trip. Big island this time. Wish I could stay for months.

I created a shortcut (for the shortcuts app on iPhones) to properly calculate tips at restaurants in the US. It even provides you with a tip amount that creates a perfectly even bill and easy to read credit card statements. Feel free to use it. Don’t know how? I can help.

I’ve tried very hard to be as silent as possible on social and political matters. I have failed from time to time, but the goal has always existed. However, this is an issue that I think overwhelms any desire to stay silent — and don’t confuse silence with neutrality.

I am a white male, a birthright I’ve known affords me certain privileges I’ve never had to earn. Therein lies the problem. Those privileges given to me belong to every person, but they’ve been denied to so many.

Prejudice exists within all of us, as it is human nature. To separate good from that evil, people must make the conscious decision to fight against that natural leaning and extend a loving hand to all people.

If you are unable to separate the violence by a small few from the peaceful protests by the majority, you are part of the problem. Saying “I am not a racist” does not mean you aren’t propping racism up without realizing it.

There are people in our communities — our close friends, our family members, our confidants — who are genuinely hurting right now. Of course all lives matter, no one is arguing that in the least. But right now, it is ok to highlight a significant problem by emphasizing Black Lives Matter.

As I’ve seen posted, Jesus proclaimed “Blessed are the poor…” and no one interrupted him to say, “No, Jesus, blessed are ALL people.” Bringing attention to one issue does not devalue another. We are more than capable of being mature adults and working towards a solution that brings true equality to our country and world.

I am sorry so many are hurting and struggling right now. We see you and will stand with you.

Happy 7th anniversary to my wife, Kalena. It has been a great and wild ride!

We’ve finally been able to take the kids places. They haven’t been inside a restaurant in over 2 months (I think our previous longest streak was like 12 hours). We went to the “enchilada place” & enjoyed every bite despite a limited menu & slow service.

Got the pool out for the first time this year. Brigsby loved it and played for hours. Ro was a little unsure about it all.

My birthday companion over the last decade. All photos from birthdays.

Swamp tour from 3 years ago.

I’ve got a user/beater golf cart for sale if you’re in or near Louisiana.

I miss parks. One year ago.

The one thing I really want but I can’t find anywhere is glass bottled root beer. Any brand.

Exploring some of the not cleared areas of our new land.

Fun in the yard.

Another look back from today in years past. Photos from Honduras and Hawaii.
