Still not unremarkable

Hopefully this works … I had a domain as the “parent” on my hosting package with NameCheap and wanted to let that domain expire while moving *this* domain as the parent. Unfortunately, that required moving some files and changing a few things on the back-end. Fortunately, NameCheap support was super Read more…

Notion.so Weather Widget

I’ve been using a great little product called Notion lately. They have a limited free version, so I highly recommend you check it out. I loved the flexibility and potential so much that I paid for a year subscription. I’ll chronicle more of my usage on this blog later. But Read more…

National Arboretum

The wife, kids, and I decided to hit the National Arboretum this morning. Mother Nature obliged by giving us a cool, breezy, low humidity day. First time wandering around the grounds and it won’t be our last. We didn’t see the eagles nesting, but did see the bonsai garden, herb Read more…

Preface: I wanted to chronicle my struggle to find a personal productivity system. I expect this will be an ongoing series … I’ve had issues with to-do lists for years. I finally had a decent system in place for a couple years using notebooks. I entered stuff easily, checked it Read more…
