Had to have a medical procedure done today. Here’s how I look today



Porsche in the cold

Saw this guy driving with the top down in a classic Porsche 356 Speedster. You can see there’s still snow on the bushes next to the building in the background.



Updated version of WordPress

Posted by steve | Blogging | Sunday 19 February 2012 2:08 pm

I noticed that the version of WordPress I was using was pretty out of date. Before I could correct that I had to switch to using PHP 5.

All done.

Automatic cross-posting a link to my Twitter account is not working. Evidently it has not for several weeks. Oh well. Some more tech stuff to figure out…

Changed to use a secure twitter application. If this update posts a message toTwitter automatically, it worked.

Nope. Did not work. For now, I’m deleting the Twitter plugins on my WordPress Blog until I work this out.


Carcassonne on our 14th Anniversary

Posted by steve | Board Games,General Commentary | Saturday 18 February 2012 2:08 pm

We celebrated our 14th-year Wedding Anniversary having dinner at our favorite steak house on Valentine’s Day. And of course we had to pull out Carcassonne (the travel edition, because it has slightly smaller tiles) and played a game right there while eating our meal.

I lost, of course. But it doesn’t matter. We had a lot of fun and it was quite a memorable meal too.

At least 2 of the restaurant staff stopped over to ask questions about this interesting game we were playing.

It was also nice to get out. Melissa hasn’t been well for quite a while now and this was our first time out together for months. A good time and celebration indeed.


A look at my future face?

Melissa has an app installed on her iPhone that, after taking your portrait, uses aging algorithms to predict how you will look when you are much older.

Here’s my result.


I kinda like it. Though I think I’ll have a lot less hair.
