Road Trip!

We are back from our road trip vacation. We ate a ton of food, saw lots of football and walked many many miles. Definitely one of the surprises of the of the trip was walking next to Rick Bayless on the street during our last night in Chicago. I didn’t recognize him until Erin basically slapped me in the side multiple times. 🙂  I only got some blurry photos but it was very cool since we ate at his restaurant 3 nights before.

Keep up the good work

The Eagles have embraced blogging this year. For those of you who are hard core Eagles fans like myself know that http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com has won multiple awards over the year for being the best NFL team website. This year they took that even further. They have a blog set up that they use to provide quick updates for various types of news. Its great. I can get my Eagles fix all day long. Its like http://profootballtalk.com but focused on the Eagles but with facts and not rumors. Fantastic.

Outdoor Smoking and Computing

This post is confirmation that I get “good” wireless signal from my patio. This is the first time I’ve tried it out since the patio went in. At the old house the signal was “low” out on the patio. It had to do with the fact that the signal had to go through multiple walls and floors. The router was in the front of the house and the patio was in the back of the house.  Here in the new house, the router is still on the 2nd floor but in the back of the house conveniently located just above the patio.

I have a chicken split in half smoking on the BGE right now. My laptop is going to smell like mesquite when I go to work tomorrow. 🙂

Life is good.
