I finally got an iPad!

Seriously, I’ve been wanting one ever since they first announced, but I’ve talked myself out of buying one every year. They are just too dang expensive. They were to dang expensive, that is. This wonderful combination of a great job with great pay, along with a great offer from AT&T, means that this iPad I… Continue reading I finally got an iPad!

Resolutions 2013

Like most people that I know, I make New Year’s Resolutions every year. And, like most people that I know, I fail to keep them. Every year.
