Big Move Started

Yesterday we started the big move. There have been many preparations but yesterday with the help of many family members we moved the majority of the art to the new house.

“You’re moving you say?” Yes! I haven’t been writing much lately but we bought a house and closed on it on March 1st. The last three weeks we’ve had every room painted in the new house, new carpet installed and some small projects. All stuff that is great to get done when nobody is living there.

Our new house is at 53rd and Morgan in Minneapolis. Tomorrow the moving company is coming to get everything packed and ready, and on Tuesday we make the move. We’ll be in the new house after that.

We are all really excited about the new place! We are also sad to move away from a great house and friends.





Parenthood on NBC.

Just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round.

Even the typography of the logo is the same. Still, both are decent shows.

You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake.

My brother-in-law Denny gave me a bottle of this Bent Nail IPA from Red Lodge Ales in Montana. They were just out there and enjoyed the brew. It was a nice bottle of beer and notably hoppy, true to its IPA calling. Nicely done!

Shut up and go play the bass.

iPad Ordered!

Placed the order this morning for the iPad and am excited to see the future of touch computing in early April.

I wasn’t sure what one to get, so I decided to go in the middle with the 32 GB. It is hard to know how much space we will want on these devices.

HumbleFinance produces really nice looking, smooth and interactive charts in HTML5 using Canvas. Very nice. At MarketWatch we had been trying to do this several years ago but it was really hard to get the user experience we wanted. I think browser technology has finally reached the point where you can do this stuff right. (via Daring Fireball)

Lift Bridge Beer

I’ve heard really good things about Lift Bridge beers and I finally got to try a couple. The rumors were true. Definitely seek out this local brew.

This looks like a great documentary. I’ve read the book, The China Study, and it makes a strong case.

Wow! I can’t wait to see this! Block your calendar for December 17, 2010.
