I’ve always said that the Genius Bar and Applecare are why I buy Apple. This story starts with a broken fan. 48 hours before I had to leave for Las Vegas for a conference my company hosts every year, my computer started making noises. Really scary noises. I immediately began backing up my computer – […]
It always makes me sad when Nathan gets ready to go out of town. I suppose that I get very used to having him by my side and being the team unit and the synergy of being physically near each other. As much as I miss him though, I know that he is the man […]

My mother taught me all of these things, and I’m lucky to have her. How to be human. How to laugh, cry, yell and hug. That good things take time. How to chin up and soldier on when they have to; how to fight when there’s a battle worth picking; and that its okay and important […]
