A couple of days ago we took the sound outside. An impromptu piano concert from the kids. #mbaug

I do not miss taking the train as transport to the office. #mbaug

Way back in the before times (early March 2020) we did a tour of An Unlikely Story bookshop. We were lucky enough to meet Jeff Kinney himself (he’s working behind the window in the group picture). This was a Tuesday. Little did we know that the kids last day in school was to be that Friday. #mbaug

Today’s #mbaug 📷 prompt is black-and-white. What else could I have used? 🤷‍♂️ 🐶 💕

The view from a house we used to rent in NH before it was removed from the market. This was 2012 and the first panoramic picture I took with the iOS 6 beta IIRC

In-laws are daytripping to visit us so I’m on grill duty. #mbaug

6 years ago… summer camp.

Apparently we find the line that bisects the two halves. Project for tomorrow #mbaug

Let the beer (and wine) flow! #mbaug

Finding somewhere peaceful to snooze during the day

I miss these snuggle bugs. We lost Rugby this year and the baby is now 11 yo and taller than her mom.


Setting up mousetrap. After being outside in the sun and heat all day yesterday, taking a break in the AC today. #mbaug

A reminder that cloud service providers hold a lot of control over your systems and data. Contracts and SLAs can’t protect you. If they pull the plug you’re the one picking up the pieces. Choose carefully.

Self propelled or kid propelled? (he asked for a summer job…)

I think we know how Carrot fared in that test…

Today we welcomed Curly to our family 🐶

If you chose to use a VPN provider because you don’t trust your ISP, how can you be sure you can trust? “No logging” really means logging but you will never know unless there’s a leak.

Might have been isolating too long but this was my best worst idea in a while

This might keep the kids quiet for a couple of minutes

It’s getting hot in here….

Pizza night!

In April 2019 Alex decided he wanted to grow his hair long “to see how it feels”. In July 2020 he decided he’s ready for his “once a year” haircut, so once again my wonderful wife stepped up. His hair was long enough to donate!

Melissa - 13 years ago my life changed on “I do!” It really doesn’t feel like it could possibly be 13 years. I remember most of the day like it was yesterday. From the morning getting ready and the little notes you left me at the house, through the ceremony and watching you come down the aisle… to the lack of AC in the limos and trying to slow the busses down so the caterers could get into the reception… it gets a little fuzzy but the fun bus ride back to the hotel and the after party. 3 kids, 1 dog, 1 fish later…. I can’t wait to find out what the next 13 years will bring us! ❤️
