About Me

I absolutely love anything that plugs in! My iPhone may just be an extension of my body. Networking, business, Christ, serving the community, husbandry, fatherhood, friends, and my amazing family are all that keep me ticking!


Online Storage/Backup

Below are the two online storage sites I use.  They are free (limited capacity), simple to use, and both have iPhone apps that make it even more simple to use.  I use one of them to share pictures with family and friends and the other to backup every picture of my family I've ever taken.  I'd highly recommend using something like these.  Recently, a friend of mine had his home broken into.  Taken were a number of electronic items, along with a computer with every video of his kids.  They are now gone and will not be returned.  Back it up folks, take the hour to prevent total loss of your invaluable items.

Moved to Mac

Ok so I have officially moved my wife and I to Mac from PC.  I've still got the Dell for work but I pitched the two remaining PC's we had and picked up a MacBook Pro.  It is so much more than I thought it was.  Wow!  This thing is amazing.  So here's to you Mr. Jobs.  Bill, I'm glad the money you made on me is at least being put to good charitable use.  

 Convergence Convergence Con-ver-gence!

I've spent the greater part of the weekend playing 'round with my iPhone and how I can optimize my apps to achieve one simple goalSo far, I have been completely blown away.  I feel almost like an iPhone commercial as I describe it to family and friends.  I have been able to tweet something and have it show up on my Twitter page, my Facebook, and my Blog!  I can get an email about tickets to an event, go to Paypal and pay for them, go back to my email and have them in my inbox waiting for me!  I can take HD video of a family event, upload it to my You Tube account, post it on my Blog, then tweet it where it will show up on my Twitter and Facebook!

My whole point behind this is that I have been able to take care of so much, without having to make an entire day of it.  I share information, take care of bills/chores/planning, and communicate directly from a device that is smaller than my wallet.

But my lawn still has to be mowed manually.
