It’s snowing again here in Nashville. I decided to fly my Mavic in it and uploaded the video here.
…and now, my favourite Christmas song.
When you’re at an Irish pub and Try a Little Tenderness comes on, but it’s the version by The Commitments so that makes it ok in your mind.
I always claim that Ryan Adams was my first country music show, but he’s not really Country. So, I’m making up for it by seeing Garth Brooks tonight.
Tea. Earl Grey (Crème). Hot. (w/ blackberry-infused honey, and cream)
Only the best way to watch S2 of The Crown, indeed.
I’m enjoying the fact that a lot of companies and developers are opening up their Slack groups to external users. Add to that all of the social groups (ex. the Indie Blogging community), and I’m actually finding a use to keep the app on my devices.
Feeling particularly productive today. Finished Christmas shopping with the wife, fixed my old Raspberry Pi 2, and cleaned the house. Not too shabby…
The Spotify Sessions: Covers playlist is pretty fantastic.
I’ve found some great covers on here (Ed Sheeran playing “…Baby One More Time” is awesome).
Been jamming to this list all morning.
Just found the feasibility study for a project that I worked on in Buffalo/Niagara back in 2012.
I totally forgot that I worked on this. I don’t even remember if we ended up completing this project or not.
Well, that was a great meeting. All my projects for 2018 were approved with the exception of one (with good reason). I’d say that’s pretty successful.
Just deployed two iPad Minis into the wild.
I wish them godspeed, and hope they don’t end up stolen.
Just finished ‘Origin’, the new Robert Langdon book by Dan Brown.
Wasn’t great, but still really good. Deals a lot with religion v. science, and even has some AI morality thrown into it.
I gave it 5/5 on Goodreads, but it’s more of a 4.5 because it was a bit slow in parts.
Plane has two bent valve rods, so we’re grounded today. Oh well. I’d rather have a plane in working order than one that won’t work at all…Tradition resumes next year.
It’s so weird how you can always find inspiration in the weirdest places. For the second week in a row I have had something inspire me when I wasn’t thinking about it, and now I have the second character for my book.
Another successful Thanksgiving. Ham, turkey, hashbrown casserole, sweet potato casserole, and chicken and dumplings. Not too shabby…
This morning’s music is brought to you by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, under the direction of Esa-Pekka Salonen performing Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, in 2009.
