Blogging from iPad take 4

I’m in Vegas this week. I wanted again to try to blog from the iPad. I saw there was an update to an app called BloggPress. This app now supports SquareSpace. Hope it works.

Coffee People Black TigerThis is my first review of a coffee pod.  We have tried many of the common pods.  We are forever searching for the one that packs the most punch with the least amount of bitterness.  We have settled mostly on two flavors.  The one I will cover in this post is Coffee People’s BLACK TIGER.

Black Tiger is by far the strongest we have tried to date.  You can feel the caffeine kick in almost immediately.  I am not up to speed with the lingo on how to review coffee so please forgive my ignorance.  I enjoy Black Tiger on those days when you wake up really tired.  The label on the front of the pod already sets the tone for what you are about to taste.  A bold looking Tiger stares at you as you place it into the machine.  And when you take the first sip bold is what you get.  I would describe the taste as heavy earthy or tobacco like. It holds it’s taste regardless of what flavored creamers you add.  In closeing Black Tiger is so far my morning fuel when the day starts rough.

Now with More Dedication….MYLIFEHAPPENS.COM


I have started a new Blog over at squarespace.  I even purchased my own domain name.  MYLIFEHAPPENS.COM This is an experiment in discipline.  I will try to post at least something daily for all to read.  Wish me luck and come do some reading!!!

My 1st Donation!!!

Hurray !!! I got my first donation from working on homeworkbug.com. A teacher was nice enough to give me a Starbucks gift card today. This may be my favorite kind of donation next to cash of course. I am sure teachers have many unwanted gift cards from Christmas lying around. I will definitely accept these for my efforts. Walmart, Home Depot, iTunes all of these are great. I will update my donations section to list these as options with a mailing address.

Your Reading my Blog !!!! Awesome

as of August 30, 2008

So I happen to look at my blog stats today and I see a HUGE jump in my readership. This blog was meant for me to practice my writing, and give me something to do on those sleepless nights where the kids were up with a fever or I just can’t sleep.

I really have no purpose for this blog except as a place to post things that are longer to explain than a twitter post or Facebook entry can handle.

It is great to see that I am nearing an average of 1000 unique hits a Month.  Most of the hits have to do with the article I wrote comparing coffee makers. Seems like Google likes me too, as I am one of the top hits when you search any of the major pod coffee machines.  The comments on that post are great also, “keep the coming”.  So thank you all for reading my ramblings.  Maybe I will post more stuff now that I know people are reading.


Favorite iPhone Apps


Although my iPhone is loaded with tons of apps my favorite or most used apps on the iphone are:

Using this cuts down on sitting at the computer at night.

Twitterific and Twinkle
Both of these are cool if use Twitter “still trying to get more people on”

I can’t even begin to explain how useful this is. All my notes, screen shots synchronized on all my computers PC & MAC & iPhone. .

Simple todo list. I sync it, so Sharon and I can keep up with all the crap we need to do around the house.

NY Times
Since I have to keep up with all the stuff going on, this app allowes me to sound somewhat smart during small talk at work.

Trying the WordPress App


Trying out tons of apps on the iPhone. Today I got a hold of an app for my favorite blogging tool. So far so good. This is my first post using it.

I will try to add a photo of the main screen and post this to see what it looks like.

So it works pretty well. I will maybe write reviews of some of my favorite apps this way. I have to practice my writing some how.
