Free Money? Sure Why Not?

Like most people I’ve always had a “love/hate” relationship with my bank. Since taking out a mortgage with them just over a year ago, however, I haven’t been able to complain about their fees anymore, as they’ve been waived. Of course the bank *is* making plenty of money with the mortgage, so it’s not really […]

Doubling the Herb Garden

While picking up the odd herb plant in a supermarket can help to add one or two varieties to my herb garden it’s not really going to work if I want to really expand the range of herbs I have growing. Supermarkets will generally stock mint, basil and maybe one or two other varieties of […]

Last year I started planting a small herb garden. I’ve no plans to have an elaborate herb garden, but as someone who enjoys cooking I want to have a reasonable selection of commonly used herbs that I can pick (or cut) fresh. I started out last year with some of the more commonly used ones, […]

In Puerto Rico you quickly discover that roast pork is high on the […]

Old San Juan

I’ve been in San Juan, Puerto Rico for just over a week. However, as I was attending a conference, it was only yesterday that I got the time to get out and explore a bit of the city during daylight hours. The old city is picturesque and fascinating. It’s got a long history going back […]

Even Big Companies Screw Up Emails

Transactional emails and marketing emails are a part of my daily life. I get emails from companies I buy things from. Sometimes they’re simply an acknowledgement of my purchase, but others times they’re also giving me a “heads up” in case my account has been compromised. Apple, for example, does this when you download something […]

2017 Flights Animated (Video)

I logged quite a few flights during 2017, though less than other years. I posted a static image of my flights during 2017 recently, so here’s a slightly more interested animated version from App in the Air: It looks pretty cool and seems to be in the right order, which is both cool and kind […]
