Android here I come

My Android based phone has been ordered (Motorola X). Tonight I stopped at the Verizon stand in the Galleria mall. It is so much more screen then I am used to now using the Blackberry Storm. I am not going to lie...it looks almost too big. Time will tell but I am sure I can get used to it.

I am also looking forward to using the estrip app. I might be inclined to post a little more and with more pics.

I love dinners in the summer

So Friday I finally got out the porch furniture and we decided to have dinner outside since the weather was so nice.

Steak, corn, left over cornbread and chop salad with a blue cheese dressing made from a Greek yogurt base.

Last night we made a dish I found in a Men's Health magazine. I can post the recipe if anyone wants it. Off the top of my head it was seared scallops over white beans, spinach, onion and bacon. I think the dish had something like 300 calories per serving (2 servings in the pic) but with super low fat and a ton of protein.

I was always so scared to cook scallops at home but they are very easy and tastes great.

Everything old is new again

Yesterday I dropped my work MacBook Pro off at the Apple store. My Apple Care is up in the beginning of February and I wanted to get 2 things looked at. It's hard to believe I will have had this thing for 3 years!

First, my battery said service soon. This is my second battery and the first one was not covered under warranty. I felt like they owed me a free one.

Second, my screen was getting some black blotches on it from what I thought was dirt and grime from the keyboard. Others have posted on the Apple forums that they were replaced under warranty. They not only replaced the screen but installed a glossy one.

I ordered the mate finish last time because I thought the florescent lights at work would cause a glare. I have found that to be false as more of my coworkers have glossy. Things look a bit washed out to me at the moment. Perhaps my other screen began to grow dim over time.

work funk

I have been in a work funk lately. I have been on a committee that has been consuming most of my time working with topics I am not even interested in. The past few months have not been all that great and I feel like it is starting to affect my personal life. I have not had a lot of motivation and I dread coming into work sometimes. Maybe it's time to shake things up a little.

Google really is great

I know some think that Google is evil. However, I would be more then happy to run whatever Google has to offer. I have nothing to hide. Google Voice is a good product that I am slowing easing into. Mail has been default since I was able to get an invite etc. etc. I also love Picasa very much for managing my pictures. I even prefer it over iPhoto. This year I purchased the extra online storage $20 for 10 GB which would allow me to post more pictures online for friends and family to see. Today I got this in my inbox:
[box]
We wanted to let you know about some exciting changes to your Google paid storage plan. While storage costs have dropped naturally in the past few years, we've also been working hard to improve our infrastructure to reduce your costs even further. On Tuesday, November 10th, we increased the size of each of our tiers to make storage even more affordable and accessible. For the same $20.00 per year, you'll now get 80 GB, 8 times as much storage as before. Your current plan will be automatically upgraded and your new quota will automatically show up in your account in the next 24 hours.

We hope you'll like the extra space, but if it's more than you need you can always change your storage plan or renewal preferences for next year in your Google account settings: www.google.com/accounts/purchasestorage. Feel free to visit our Help Center for more information.[/box]


Who does this???? Google!

Sad scene on the 90 Eastbound

Last night my wife and I were driving to Batavia for a birthday party when we ran into stopped traffic. There was not a concert at Darien Lake so I knew it had to be an accident. Sure enough we were about to pass the scene and we saw it was a motorcycle. The cycle was underneath the guard rail and my first reaction was this is not good. About 20 feet from the cycle was what looked to be a body wrapped up in whatever they had available. I did not get a great look at it but it was the right shape and size. It was a little horrifying to say the least. I was a little concerned that they did not pull a car up next to it or they do not carry those privacy tents. I saw them on a UK site one time. The police on the scene would just pop up the tent and that way rubber necking would be minimal. I am not sure of protocol in a situation like that. Perhaps they could not move the body before the coroner arrived. Maybe they needed to do further investigation at the scene.

I felt a rush of sadness from when I was younger having gone through something similar with my brother. He died in a car accident on a normal night without any warning. Just knowing that someone was going to get a phone call. Someone was going through their normal day to day and boom it changed in an instant. I feel sorry for them.
