Why my next phone may not be an iPhone

I forgot to plug my cellphone in last night. I went to the dealer to get the car serviced and charged my iPhone in the car on the way there. When I got there it was at 27%. The service rep at the desk told me it would be about 2 hours before I got my car back and I had forgotten to grab my charger before I left.

Then I saw this.

I was thrilled. It even had an 8 pin plug.
Then this happened.

Screw you Apple! I bet Android users don’t have this issue.

New Tiles


I’m installing new tiles in the entryway. We are going with a 6″x6″ porcelain tile from Home Depot. The style we are using is called Bengal Slate by Marazzi. We are going to use a color called Delorean Gray for the grout. I will post more pictures when done.

Hulk Valentine’s Day Box

My son has an assignment to make a Valentine’s Day Box. He’s a big superhero fan. So we decided to make a superhero box for the big day. We took a cereal box and used a brush to cover it in white glue. Then we affixed green construction paper to it and trimmed the edges. While it dried, my son cut out shapes that I had drawn on white and black construction paper. The shapes were drawn in pencil and used for the hair, eyes, eyebrows and teeth. I cut a rectangular hole in the box for a mouth with a box cutter and glued the teeth pieces on. We then used a sharpie to draw the nose on. This Incredible Hulk box looks awesome. I hope it’s a hit at school!


We also made one for the little brother!


3D Printer @ MS Store


The Microsoft store in the Prudential Center (Copley Square, Boston) was showcasing a 3D printer. Here are some items which were printed out on the MakerBot Replicator 2. The items were surprisingly well constructed.
