Walking further down my path

I am walking my path of spiritual awakening and trying to draw from many sources. I personally believe that exclusion of any path at this point would be wrong. There can be many merits found in any path and the importance is finding what works best for you and using it to it's utmost. To this end I am currently reading Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard. We will see where this leads.

Three year olds and tie dye don't mix

Somehow my three year old got into a tie dye kit my wife bought. Of course he found the black dye and got it all over his hands and feet. Well after 30 mins of scrubbing and a few tricks from a couple of blogs I have managed to get 99% of it off. Most of what was missed is under the nails and will come out in time. Lesson 1: If your wife buys a tie dye kit and you have small children... Make sure she hides it well. Lesson 2: Never underestimate the power of a three year old to find the messiest thing possible and apply it to his or her body. Lesson 3: Be constantly vigilant with a three year old even when writing and you have no idea that there is a tie dye kit in the normally safe living room. Lesson 4: Note the power of magic eraser in removing said tie die safely remembering to rinse well. Final lesson: when life throws these curve balls try to take it in stride and learn to laugh... Just remember all the crap you got into when you were a kid and realize... Hey I'm still alive.

iPad day 4

Things are going well with the iPad and I've been playing with many of the available apps. So far I am finding it to be very versatile and even rather productive due to it's portability and many useful apps. I am looking forward to further testing and more app usage as time and budget allow. My wife already wants one of her own so I guess I had better start saving up. Perhaps we'll try one with 3G next to compare them.

iPad Day 2

Ok everyone. I am loving the iPad. The games and such are addicting and its great for video, though I must get myself a case for it and some screen protectors because I want it to last a while. I am going to be playing with the Pages word processing app soon and will let everyone know what I think. I am really liking its functions and finding it to be really easy to use. I think it will be very helpful to my writing as well as just a nifty toy to play with.

With practice I think I will get really good at using it. Its quite an interesting bit of machinery. As I mentioned I have the bottom of the line WiFi model and not one thats both 3G and WiFi so take that in account when reading this so I have no idea how the 3G works. I plan to work on it and perhaps in future I will get one of the more fancy, larger memory units. It really is all about what you want to use it for and where you want to use it. For now, at least, the WiFi suits me just fine.

So Far I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I will let you know if any of this changes.

iPad etc

Well I've broken down and got an iPad. So far I am liking it and not just the fact that both of my books are available on the free iBooks ap. It is an interesting device to type on for sure but I seem to be adapting quite quickly... Must be the Star Trek fan in me! So far I am really loving this device can't wait to really get rolling with it. The exact model I am using is the bottom of the line 16G WiFi model that retails at Apple's online store for $499 and that is exactly where I bought it from. I am surre there will be more posts about this device and how I like or even dislike it to come as I have more time to experience it. Though if you have an iPhone or iPad and get the free iBooks ap then know both of my books as well as many other titles from my publisher are available there and there will be more to come.
