Flegan

My wife decided to become vegan about three years ago. My daughter had been vegetarian for most of her life at that point and decided to go full vegan shortly after my wife. Since that time, I’ve certainly changed my eating habits … mostly for the better. I basically have Read more…

Goodreads Reading Challenge

Last year I signed up for Goodreads‘ Reading Challenge. I purchased a used Kindle Paperwhite in December 2017 because I decided I needed to read more … especially more than just professional texts related to work. So I committed to reading 15 books in 2018. I figured I could read just Read more…

To-Do list saga, part one

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…
