Grammarly and iOS is a Big Bag of Suck

I’ve written about my writing workflow a number of times and it keeps changing a bit here and there. One of the key components in the past was Grammarly. I freely admit, that my grammar and punctuation is pretty bad. I try to keep improving it but some days are better than others and this […]

On Baby Changing Areas in a Men’s Bathroom

This article from Hugh Wilson reminded me of my similar battles. The worst was the kids store that had a men’s bathroom, no family bathroom and no changing space in the men’s bathroom.

Running your business is like a 50k race and Finding Nemo

Sept 15th I ran my second 50km race, commonly called an Ultra Marathon because it’s longer than a marathon. Unfortunately this year I fell off a cliff at the end of July and messed up my ankle. That meant I was coming in to the race with two months of mostly no training. I had […]
