From the “You Know Programmers…They’re Always Changing Things!” Dept:

If you're thinking the site looks a wee bit different today...your eyes are *NOT* deceiving you. This site was my first shot at Wordpress and it was sort of a Frankenstein's creation between the Genesis-based theme Revolution Pro and the NextGen image gallery. And it worked pretty well together. The website I re-designed for the photos for the kids and the family also used NextGen (to be fair, it's so image-heavy that it's really stressed…

From the “Larry’s Working On His Fourth PM!” Dept:

For the first time in the 15 times that Her Majesty the Queen has invited a member of the House of Commons to form a government in her name, the actual ceremony of accepting the resignation of the incumbent PM and the prospective new PM "kissing hands" was not at Buckingham Palace but rather Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire in Scotland. This was due in part to the Queen's comfort reported as "mobility problems" but even…

"Power is permanence. Impermanence is impotence!"Sir Humphrey Appleby Prime Ministers come and Prime Ministers go but everyone knows that the real power in No 10 Downing Street isn't the PM or the Cabinet but rather the Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office. The current incumbent in that official appointment in Her Majesty's Government is named Larry and whilst he's had a rather chequered reputation for actually ridding No 10 of mice and other vermin and…

I wish I could say that the advent of Justice Alito's majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Org. in a substantially similar form to the first draft that was leaked a few weeks ago was a surprise but considering the current membership of the Supreme Court and their ideological and religious leanings...it really isn't. Anyone who saw Dobbs get granted certiorari to be heard in this session knew that if Dobbs didn't succeed…

It feels kind of weird going through the Chick Fil-A bereft of free bird thanks to the Carolina Hurricanes home win promotion (which I wholeheartedly hope stays in play this coming season!). But after a chilly trip to the Knightdale YMCA pool with Katie and Alex and Katie actually having some free bird on her app today, we are visiting the Knightdale location that inspired the Chick Fil-Audits series of posts with a 37 minute…

From the “Once Again on Bat Bridge Near LAX!” Dept:

Once more we're streaming "LA Flights" on YouTube but this time we're waiting for arguably the most famous plane in the world...the VC-25A (a heavily modified Boeing 747-200) known as Air Force 1 when the President is aboard. I did have a chance to see Air Force 1 live from the Observation Deck at RDU when President Obama came to town and I was rocking two cameras whilst crammed against the railing of the platform…
