Fall is right around the corner but of course, the only way you would know it around here is because football is on tv now.  We won’t see any break in the heat until next month or so. I usually love summer the best but this year it sucked.  All I did was sit in […]

I'll Make Do...

It’s been rough for the old Captain lately.  Constant financial issues, dealing with losses both personal and physical, and over the past week, the problems with simply living in a room.  Through it all, however, I’ve been able to maintain some semblance of an income by way of the computer and the iPhone.  If something […]

Some of you have on occasion written to me to ask about what it takes to become a top notch, first rate, highly sought after, app developer.  I don’t have any idea.  But I can relate how things are going with my little spot on the app store.  And it ain’t pretty. The wifi is […]

Here’s a question for you to ponder over your morning cup of the beverage of your choice: Which makes you feel more better?  Getting something…or getting rid of something? Does going out shopping, for whatever, and acquiring something new, shiny, or high in fat and calories make you happier? Or does tossing something out, selling […]

As of this weekend, I have finally finished rebuilding and repairing the running rigging on the Spirit.  I replaced a couple of blocks, repaired a couple of others, acquired the last of the lines I will need, and now I can raise and control the sails…or I like to think that I could.  I don’t […]

On the other pages I talked at length about starting a stand up paddle business.  While the emphasis was on stand up paddle boards, the posts could easily be applied to just about any start up business venture.  Research your market, make sure you have sufficient capital to get things going, make sure you have […]

Now that I have two…count ’em…2 books on the iBookstore that qualifies me to employ my PHD in slinging bovine fecal matter and help out anyone else who may be looking to get their manuscript published.  And besides, it’s a slow week and I need to post something.  So here goes… If indeed you are […]

Ditching the Paper Habit...

Around the end of 2010 I made a conscious decision to give up paper.  It was becoming an annoying habit and it was time to stop.  The digital age had finally progressed enough that I was confident that I could eliminate virtually all paper in my life.  And I was right. For years, I would […]

My Final Post...

Yeah, you wish.  Let me rephrase that.  My final post, on my laptop.  This week begins the Grand Experiment.  I am going to attempt to live using only my iPad.  Perhaps I should clarify. I have two computing devices I use at the moment.  A Mac Air laptop and an iPad.  I needed both when […]

I’m a geek when it comes to computers and electronic gadgets. In particular, Apple based products. I got my first iPhone over two years ago and my first MacAir soon after that. Now I am down to two devices, an 11″ MacAir, and an iPad2. I dropped the iPhone as the iPad duplicated everything the […]
