I've previously quoted it, but I'd never embedded it. By now everyone's seen this a few times over, but it's still 15 minutes well spent.

The word "hero" in terms of a leading graphic or image means a certain thing, but Apple's name for the image of Steve Jobs currently on the website is simply known as "t_hero.png" and one can't help but think that "hero" means something else entirely today. Steve Jobs, Hero:
What saddens me most is that we'll never again get to see "one more thing." Apple will continue to do great things - Steve has instilled his mindset, his will, his whim and fancy throughout the company - but we'll never know what could have been. Steve Jobs is safely inside the top ten list […]
Today was what may be, for a few years, an annual golf trip to Orchard Ponds. The idea is that we have a foursome comprised of Myself, Carey, Natalie, and Brandon. Natalie gets to play from the red tees on every hole, and will end up with a score. This year got off to a […]
"Truth is a defense for libel, not for graciousness." - Unattributed I'm admittedly blunt and direct when it comes to things, but I'm softening - learning to be more gracious with each passing year. It's tough, and I still fail a hundred times for each success, but if that number can be lowered to 98, […]
For various scheduling reasons, we're having Christmas a day early this year at our house. It will allow the most people to be here and everyone's off, so why not? And, on the off chance (i.e. Brandon forgetting to bring his dip) that someone forgets something, stores are still open to sell it to us. […]
I don't have all the details like the exact birth time, weight, length, etc. but I'd like to welcome my nephew Parker Smith into the world. He's got a perfect alter-ego name should he one day become a superhero.
My wife turns 33 today. I'll say happy birthday to her in our own way later today (and it was the first thing I said - thankfully :D) this morning when she awoke, but here's the public "happy birthday" most would expect. I did not know that opal was one her birthstones until Nat and […]
A great article on only children. I'm quite happy with the one I've got and have no plans for more. This doesn't make me a bad person and it's in my kiddo's best interests as well, and the article makes that point rather nicely, too.
I've made a few posts on my blog about my search for a decent burger. Thus far, the list includes In-n-Out, Five Guys, and even Fuddruckers. But none tops Lindburger in Delray Beach, FL. Turns out I can add Red Robin (yum!) to that second tier of burgers. Their Red Royal Robin burger - which […]
Carey and I have now been married for five years. Last year we forgot our anniversary until several days later. This year, no. What will we do? Nothing. Like our birthdays, it's just another day. Carey plays in her golf league later this evening and I'll be at the Academy most of the day. Our […]
Though technically my time as an amateur golfer ended prior to this afternoon, I crossed a barrier today that cements my decision to become a golf instructor: I gave my first official lesson. I've been observing lessons given by Dave Wedzik for quite awhile now. My trip to Scottsdale, though ostensibly for the capturing of […]
