April 2016 – What I’ve Been Doing at 8:16 PM (20:16)

Here is my April 2016, installment of what I had done at 8:16 PM each night during the month. I also found it helpful writing down what happened during the day as a small journal/diary of what was good, bad, or interesting.

Little Background

I started keeping track of what I was doing at 20:16 (8:16 PM) every day for the last month after reading Kitt Hodson’s Pastry Box article from Jan 1, 2015. Which was about how a year earlier she read Erica Douglass’s article about writing down what she did at 11:11 AM and 20:14 (8:14 PM) everyday.

April 2016 Events

Apr 1 – Driving up 30th street in Georgetown section of Washington, DC, after not finding any parking near Baked and Wired to get cupcakes. First had dinner of a small bowl of beef eye round and fatty brisket at Pho 75. Did more work gathering evidence that the new version of Compliance Sheriff we updated to is making scans take anywhere from twice to ten plus times longer to run. We used to have 2,000-page scans take 20 to 30 minutes which now take hours. Not sure if it is software related or possibly server related.

Apr 2 – Laying on my bed reading the latest edition of Edible DC, which is about spring veggies and new bakeries that are opening. Got up around 8 AM and did some reading before heading over to the Post Office to pick up my mail after having it held while out in Las Vegas and San Diego. Next went to St. Elmo’s to visit with friends to see what they had been up to the last few weeks while I was gone. After stopping at the Del Ray Framer’s Market to grab two blueberry scones, I went to M. E. Swing’s Coffee Roaster for hot chocolate and dealt with my e-mail inbox which needed work after not doing much with it besides deleting junk while gone. Once I was done there went to Wegmans for a late lunch from the hot bar and to grab some cheese, toilet paper, and facial tissues. The next thing on my list was to read in bed some more and take a nap.

Apr 3 – Sitting in a comfy chair at Boccato Lounge reading Scott Hurff’s “Designing Products People Love” after having a blood orange tea while setting up the April Accessibility DC event. Slept in until 9:30 AM, before meeting up with old co-workers, their child, and significant other for brunch at the Royal Restaurant in Old Town Alexandria. Afterward, we stopped at Buzz Bakery for coffees, hot chocolates, and of course cupcakes. They have made a bunch of changes to the layout along with the types of cupcakes they make. Sad there was no 9:30 Cupcake, at least, today. Once I got dropped home did some reading and had a short nap or at least short for me.

Apr 4 – Sitting in my living room reading but I can’t remember what, since I’m posting this two days later. If you’re going to try and keep track of what was going on at 8:16 PM or any other time you need to do it then or if busy spending time with people, at least, out in a few notes as soon as you can so you can jog your memory.

Apr 5 – Sitting in my leather chair with my feet on the ottoman continuing to reading Scott Hurff’s book “Designing Products People Love”. Did more research on when and possibly why the new OSHA Android Heat Index application was giving incorrect results.

Apr 6 -Reading “Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test in Just Five Days” by Jake Knapp and others from Google Ventures. I spent today explaining what you knew about the new OSHA Android Heat Index application issues, along with spending afternoon teaching a Compliance Sheriff training.

Apr 7 – Sitting at home watching “The Big Bang Theory” for the first time in a few weeks to over a month. Did another Compliance Sheriff training even though the application is running way to slow? Plus, I did more screenshot to document my findings.

Apr 8 – Writing bills in my spare bedroom that I should have sent out earlier this week. Once done I realized I was one stamp short to drop them in the mail. Did more testing of the updated OSHA Android Heat Index and found that not all of the locations were found when doing so in Spanish. The English version seems to be working but hard to tell when the country is in a cold spell.

Apr 9 – Listening to the radio in my bed while reading the Washington City Paper’s “Best of DC 2016” edition. Trying to find the best place to eat particular types of food, places to read, relax, etc. Went to the Courthouse Farmers Market and had egg, bacon, and to types of cheese ( Provolone and aged cheddar). Then went to St. Elmo’s. The post office for stamps. M. E. Swing Coffee Roasters to work on e-mail backlog and draft e-mail for accessibility meetup organizers. Then to pick up Sam for lunch at Pho 75 then headed to Boccotto Lounge for Cherry and fig tea to work some more on another e-mail draft, along with posting a blog post of what I did at 8:16 PM in March.

Apr 10 – In my spare bedroom launching Turbo Tax 2015 on my Windows XP PC so I can do my taxes for the year that are due in five days. Slept into 9:00 AM or so today. Headed over to Eastern Market but could not find anywhere to park so then went to the DuPont Farmers Market. Once I got there, I did my usual walk around to see what was there first. I noticed two things and the first being that the guys near the flower stand was making a breakfast dish of pork three ways with grits and some lightly pickled kale. The other item was Jose Andres restaurant Zaytinya was slow roasting a whole lamb. I then doubled back to get a single order of the pork and grits which had crispy pulled pork, stuffed pig stomach parts, and then what might have been a pork head cheese cooked in a pan with an over easy egg. Once I ate that wonderful dish I did my shopping and then camped out at the Zaytinya booth reading Twitter to kill some time to when the were going to be ready to carve. After taking the lamb of the spit and letting it rest, they started carving and asked if anyone wanted any of the skin, which of course I had a piece or two or three. What they served people was homemade tzatziki sauce on a Boston lettuce leaf and a few pieces of roasted lamb. What a killer dish to top the excellent pork and grits breakfast. Next, I managed to get to the Georgetown Flea Market to see what they had, and there was nothing I was interested in or needed that bad. I then headed towards home the long way through DC up the rest of Wisconsin Ave and then down Connecticut Ave to U St. and then down 14th St. to Del Ray to get tea at St. Elmo’s and send out a few e-mails and read an article or two. Once I got home did some more reading and then a two hours or so nap.

Apr 11 – ENTERED 05/07/2016 – must have been so busy doing cool things that I didn’t even put in a small note to say what I did that day or even the next day. My guess of what the exciting thing was working on my taxes and then submitting them closer to midnight.

Apr 12 – Catching up on Twitter after being home sick for the day. Didn’t feel like cooking after sleeping an extra five hours during the day.

Apr 13 – Walking home from Braddock St. metro after attending the DC Fem Tech awards a few of my friends won ( Maggie, Marissa, JoAnna, and a few more).

Apr 14 – Watching a repeat episode of “The Big Bang Theory” from Thanksgiving time that I never saw. Interesting to see Elon Musk on the show and working in the soup kitchen cleaning dishes. My day was spent reading and responding to e-mails.

Apr 15 – Sitting at Pho 75 texting with a co-worker while waiting to order a small bowl of Pho with raw round eye and fatty brisket and extra noodles. Attended two meetings and had the tech guys roll back to the old version of Compliance Sheriff because the newer one caused scans to run for hours instead of minutes.

Apr 16 – Sitting in Buzz Bakeshop drinking a chocolate cinnamon tea, not the best. Went and got my oil changed along with having the car dealership replace my front left headlight first thing in the morning. I used the time while I waited to publish a blog post about two different ways to create organizational charts using HTML (definition list and structured heading levels) and CSS, along with sending out a few e-mails. Once done went to St. Elmo’s to meet the gang, but only one showed up which is good because a few old friends I hadn’t seen in a year or year and a half were walking by and stopped in. Once I left there, I went to M. E. Swing Coffee Roasters for hot chocolate and to work on dealing with a bunch of old e-mails and to DM a group of people about talking at Accessibility DC either in person or remotely. Then went home for a bit of reading, listening to NPR, and a nap. All in all, I managed to deal with about 75 to 80 e-mails. Now I need to get through the last 100 or at least get closer to zero. Tomorrow it’s off to the Shen-Valley Flea Market in White Post, VA, which is between Winchester and Front Royal, for the first time this year.

Apr 17 – Walking into the house after grabbing dinner of shrimp, lime chicken, red curry chicken, pork pot stickers, and some rice at Wegmans after a day of wondering around near Shenandoah National Park area. Spent the day with a co-worker first going to Shen-Valley Flea Market where I bought three Griswold cast iron skillets and another cast iron skillet with a cover. Then we headed to the Front Royal Flea Market were all we bought was lemonade. Next stop was at Knotty Pine Restaurant, and I had cheese omelet with home fries, rye toast, and a side of sausage. We then made a stop near the quilt store to get some cherry apple cider. After that, it was a stop at the Copper Fox Distillery so he can pick up a few things for himself and friends. Then we walked across the parking lot to Pen Druid Brewery where we tried tastings of all six of their beers so that way I could purchase two of them to take with me Tuesday night in Cabin John.

Apr 18 – Reading an article about Jason Zook on http://minimums.com/, which is a website about featuring the most interesting possessions of the world’s most interesting people. So far of the three articles I have read they are cool people with interesting stuff. Think I saw this website a year or so ago. Did a quick Trusted Tester review of two Survey Monkey survey pages to see what was not accessible. Also, found out the rollback of Compliance Sheriff has at least gotten rid of the issue of scans running for hours or days when they should have taken minutes or an hour for the larger ones. Even managed to look at some code to try and figure out why the visual page display breaks. My guess is it is because it’s part of a FORM.

Apr 19 – Sitting in Cabin John having a beer tasting with friends.

Apr 20 – Giving a talk about ALT text at Blackboard. Finished correcting the show hide for the definition stuff at work.

Apr 21 – Talking with Jason and Rochelle after the performance talk at Refresh DC at Chief.

Apr 22 – Talking with the neighbor before for driving to Pho 75 for dinner.

Apr 23 – Driving from Wegmans after grabbing dinner and some more of the runny cheese that’s like butter to Boccatto Lounge for some tea nd doing research on iTunes about restaurant review applications to see what issues people have with them. Went to Arlington Courthouse Farmer’s Market to grab asparagus, heirloom tomatoes, along with bacon, egg, and sharp cheddar cheese breakfast sandwich. Next went to St. Elmo
s to meet up with friends and see what’s been going on with them for about an hour or so. After that went to M. E. Swing Coffee Roasters for a hot chocolate and sent out over a dozen requests for friends s to give accessibility talks at our monthly Accessibility DC events. Once done there came home to read and nap for a few hours. After the nap did a bit of cleaning up to get ready for my father’s visit on Monday, which was mostly taking paper and cardboard outside to be recycled, along with some plastics from the kitchen.

Apr 24 – Cleaning silverware and getting ready to do dishes to finish up the last part of cleaning before my dad comes on Monday. Slept in until about 9:45 AM. Then did some reading and took a shower. After that headed to the Dupont Circle farmers market. Ended up having the pork three ways with grits Friday egg and some greens. This time, the grits were a little bit flavorless compared to last time. Extra around DC up towards zoo and then down Wisconsin and then through Arlington before heading home. Then started cleaning my house, but had to stop to go over to Target to pick up a new Swiffer Sweeper to help clean the hardwood floors. While I was over in the plaza stopped at Barnes & Noble to look at a few magazines.

Apr 25 – Dinner with dad and James at Maketto for Cambodian food. Listened to my brother’s stories about bartering for items during his work trip to China.

Apr 26 – Cabin John drinking beer and eating jerk chicken wings.

Apr 27 – Watching American Pickers after getting home and spending an hour visiting with my sister who is in town for a conference. Continued working on accessible and Unites States map.

Apr 28 – Catching up on tweets during the commercials of the Big Bang theory. Found Edward Tufte forum post about creating charts and grafts that are usable by those that are colorblind.

Apr 29 – Finished up my small bowl of raw eye round and fatty brisket pho at Pho 75 and getting ready to pay my bill. More work on the accessible United States map along with finishing the review of a few PDFs and a required annual learning module.

Apr 30 – Sitting in a lounge chair at Boccato Lounge reading Jamie Oliver’s “Everyday Super Food” about creating a great healthy fruit salad. At my third coffee shop of the day. Woke up at 7 AM and read for a bit before writing bills which I nailed on my way to St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub to meet with friends. Once we left I went to M. e. swing Coffee Roaster for a hot chocolate while responding to e-mails about talking at Accessibility DC and a few other things. Ended up dealing with about 40 or 50 e-mails. After that drive the long way to Union Market so I could listen to “This American Life”. Once there ran into Chef Mike at the Toki Underground grocery store. He told me he had a pork belly pork based soup along with steamed Opel buns. Grabbed soup for lunch followed up with a chorizo and cheese kolache and a fruit and cream cheese one. Then went back to talk to chef Nike about him going to open a ramen place in the Foggy Bottom Whole Foods for Chef Eric. Ended up grabbing two steamed pork buns and a Concord grape and blackberry large bottles of vinegar. Dropped food in my car then went to A. Litteri’s to get a meatball sub for dinner and some cured meat. Finally, made it to Boccato Lounge to work on making the DOL developer dataset tables responsive and accessible using Dylan Barrel’s method, so we didn’t have to have tables for desktop and a whole other set of code for handheld devices. Productive day all around if I don’t say so myself.


Hopefully, this has been helpful to you and gets you to keep track of what you do a particular time of the day, along with a short daily diary entry to see what you have done or can accomplish over the course of a year.

If you want to meet up to do something exciting at 8:16 PM some evening, please leave a comment. Or a suggestion of something that is not part of my ordinary life you think I should do.

What I’ve Been Doing at 20:15 (8:15 PM) – April 2015

Guess I forgot to post April, May, and June’s a few weeks ago. So here at least is what I was up to at 8:15 PM in April. Will post the May, June, and July over the next two weeks.

Background about Posts

Started keeping track of what I was doing at 20:15 (8:15 PM) every day for the last few months after reading Kitt Hodson’s Pastry Box article from Jan 1, 2015. Which was about how a year earlier she read Erica Douglass’s article about writing down what she did at 11:11 AM and 20:14 (8:14 PM) everyday.

I thought this was a great idea to see if I could find any patterns in my nights. So far I tend to watch TV Monday, Thursday, and Sunday nights when I’m home. Also on the weekends I tend to be leaving or coming back from dinner, sometimes even eating dinner.

Here is my post of what I’ve been doing at 20:15 (8:15 PM) in January, February, and March.


Apr 1 – ENTERED 2015/04/02 – Standing at the top of the second-floor stairs of Clyde’s in Chinatown attending the Innovation in Accessibility meet-up. Talking with William, Jason, and others discussing with a deaf guy about building single page applications using JavaScript frameworks and how they are mostly not accessible. Interestingly he hadn’t thought much about their accessibility for others after a long discussion about captioning.

Apr 2 – In REI purchasing new hiking shoes and three Isis of Smartwool socks. Used my dividend, plus I got 20% off the $90 shoes and 10% off the socks because I got three pair. A day spent looking at the code to improve developer accessibility and what needs changing for the “Standards for Application” demo websites.

Apr 3 – Re-reading Elle Luna’s (@elleluna) blog post on Medium, called “The Crossroads of Should and Must”. Thought it made sense to re-read this post after reading the introduction to her new book by the same name before going any further with the book. Was listening to B.B. King’s “Live in Cook County Jail” while reading.  Once done heading over to District Taco to grab a few breakfast tacos (egg, cheese, and chorizo in a flour tortilla). Might even add a bit of the leftover hot green papaya salad to add a bit of flavor and punch.

Apr 4 – Watching Duke Blue Devils beat Michigan St. Spartans by 15 points with less than three minutes to go in the game. Woke up at 6:30 AM after the upstairs neighbors alarm went off. Then went to Giant to turn in $90+ of change. Next went to Heller’s Bakery for donuts, but they were closed after being open since 1928. Sad day. Would have gone to Citibank to cash birthday check, but the branch in Foggy Bottom branch didn’t open until 10 AM. Got to Plaza Arts to pick up canvases to start my 100 days project to paint wine and food related paintings each day. Stopped at Union Market for lunch and found out Toki pop-up was closed because Maketto is opening next Friday. At A. Litteri’s stocked up on cured Italian meats while one if the guys made me a free cured nears sandwich after ordering a meatball sub.

Apr 5 – Walking past the corner of Commonwealth Ave. and Camron St. Was out on a 5,600+ step walk over the course of an hour wandering into Old Town Alexandria to watch the tourist on Easter. The day was spent sleeping in and then heading to DuPont Circle Farmers Market shopping for food. Had a great vegetarian shiitake mushroom, brown rice, and other herbs, etc. sandwich. Next we drove around DC to see what was going on. Then headed to Eden Center to check out the new Gold Fortune grocery store. Next walked to the opposite end of the shopping center for Pho and back to get more food. Picked up roast pork finely chopped along with pickled veggies to make my version of Banh Mi and a few other items. Total steps walked was 13K+ or over 6 miles.

Apr 6 – Opening up old paint tubes so I can start my 100-day project with paintings of wine bottles and food. First wine painting turned out okay after not painting for like six or eight years. The day was spent updating developer accessibility issues and CSS, plus testing VETS for accessibility issues.

Apr 7 – ENTERED 2015/04/08 – Started cleaning up the apartment by gathering all the trash in the wastebaskets. Then moved on to dinner and painting wine bottle paintings, while watching TV.

Apr 8 – Reading Elle Luna’s post on her “My Morning Routine”, while watching “The Best Bars in America” in the background. Had Trusted Tester/accessibility meeting for two hours in the morning and then read the document for tomorrow’s meeting. The afternoon was adding spent working on CSS fixes to the developer to improve keyboard accessibility and fix skip navigation anchor issue. Then did JAWS testing of VETS. Still need dinner and finish my third 100-day project painting.

Apr 9 – Cleaning off my paint brush after adding a dark orange background for tonight’s wine bottle painting. Need to start painting the backgrounds a day or more in advance so they can dry and make the bottle painting easier. Day of meetings and testing. Helping figure out Section 508 policy at work and what goes on with bringing Trusted Tester into work.

Apr 10 – At District Taco with Chris, Tony, and the kids. They enjoyed the tacos greatly. I had two fish tacos and two basic breakfast tacos with chorizo. Then took them out to Mt. Vernon to show them where George Washington lived. Ended evening at the Dairy Godmother for custard. The daily flavor was cherry blossom. Finished up last updates to Developer website to correct accessibility issues for TABLEs, skip navigation, and keyboard users, along with more VETS testing.

Apr 11 – Sitting the car reading Twitter while friends and their kids go see Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and Korean Memorial. We spent the day wandering around National Zoo and then had dinner at 2 Amy’s. Best pizza in the area. We’re grabbing frozen custard again tonight at The Dairy Godmother once done.

Apr 12 – Working on my 2014 taxes. Spent good part of the day trying to install and update Turbo Tax 2014. Started around 12:30 PM and it was taking forever so left to meet Megan at Buzz Bakery to go over and help her with her accessibility slides. While I was gone in the of middle loading Turbo Tax, Windows XP decided to reboot for security updates so had to start over. Once rebooted Windows needed to download more updates and wouldn’t let the machine do anything else for like an hour. Finally, git everything loaded and slow time getting mist recent updates to Turbo Tax. Now download Virgina state tax information. Hoping to get done tonight so I can review thing tomorrow night.

Apr 13 – Watching “2 Broke Girls”, then grabbing takeout from South China before more TV and reviewing my taxes. Turbo Tax currently has me owing $0 to the state if Virginia. Never in 35+ years of doing taxes have never noticed or been owed money. Might also be the night to order my new Retina MacBook Pro.

Apr 14 – Driving to Five Guys to pick-up a cheeseburger with lettuce, grilled onions, and grilled mushrooms, along with ketchup and mustard. Worked on testing a native application iPhone with VoiceOver, which is a first for me. Spent time reading Section 508 testing document too.

Apr 15 – Sitting outside Clarendon Apple Store to see if they can fix my iPhone 4S. Late yesterday evening the top power button stopped working unless you press it hard. The other issue has been once my battery gets between 60% – 70% the phone will drop to 20% battery or shut off without warning. Most likely time to get a new phone.

Apr 16 – Finishing up Chicken Tikka Masala, garlic naan, and a samosa while watching “The Big Bang Theory”. Had a busy day starting with three-hour meeting about new accessibility policy and implementation at work. Then dealing with Compliance Sheriff not running because of lack of space, new intranet accessibility, what to do about some documents accessibility, and a few other things.

Apr 17 – REENTERED – 04/20/2015 – Driving between Cheesetique and Good Fortune Market to get roast pork from the food court. Got there around 8:25 PM and found out they closed the food court at 8:00 PM. You would think a food court in a grocery store would be open later on a Friday night.

Apr 18 – REENTERED – 04/20/2015 – Watching TV while my new iPhone 4S is updating my applications and music. Spent most of day restoring my iPhone 4S after getting a replacement one from the Clarendon Apple store. Pro Tip: remove music and other media files (TV shows, movies, videos, etc.) before your last backup, so you don’t have to wait nine hours for 12.5 GB to load. That is if you have a backup somewhere.

Apr 19 – ENTERED – 05/05/2015 – Lost this entry because over the weekend of April 19 my work computer rebooted. When I opened the SimpleNote web page, it refreshed to what was in there from Friday morning, which only had Thursday night’s entry. This meant I had to recreate Friday, Saturday, and Sunday’s entries that I never remembered what happened Sunday night beside most likely watching TV.

Apr 20 – Reading a Web Development Group article about Google changing their search algorithm to rank responsive websites higher when on searching on your mobile device or tablet, also watching 2 Broke Girls. Had a busy day getting a bunch of things done. From enterprise scanning software, figuring out PDF accessibility issues, and making recommendations on improving new website performance.

Apr 21 – Starting to look into best and easiest way to convert my main jfciii.com website pages into responsive pages, since Google changed their search algorithm to give a higher ranking to responsive pages. Updated page TITLEs for APIv2 application so assistive technology users will understand what the page is about from the TITLE. Next, tested iPhone application with VoiceOver at work and tomorrow get to see how it works when I change the language of Spanish on the phone. Supposedly it’s going to switch to being in Spanish.

Apr 22 – Laying on sofa killing time reading Twitter to see what I missed while working today. Then I’m heading out to grab takeout Chinese to eat while watching “Best Bars in America” and “Brew Dogs” on Esquire Network.  Worked with a co-worker to check the accessibility of iPhone application with VoiceOver for the Spanish version. This application changes to Spanish when iPhone has the language set to Spanish. Taught him VoiceOver while he listened to Spanish to make sure it was correct.

Apr 23 – Sitting in the front row at iStrategyLabs listening to @moonstompmaggie and @elifitch talk about the project they did for Facebook’s F8 conference. In a short time, they built a 3D interactive experience using Three JS, with not much knowledge of either. Put accessibility issues into GitHub for URL shortener, along with finished testing iPhone application using VoiceOver in Spanish.

Apr 24 – Driving with Devorah to meet one of Jen Strickland’s friend near the White House at 18F to show him around, since he’s new to town. Drive around 14th St. and end up at Izakaya Seki for sushi, beef tongue, monkfish liver, and more. Ended night at Dangerously Delicious Pie. Mostly worked on read new Trusted Tester and Section 508 Policy document.

Apr 25 – Relaxing on the couch watching “The Big Bang Theory” reruns after driving up to Philly and back to meet Alex Hillman at Reading Terminal Market to grab a roast pork sandwich from Tommy Di Nic’s and two Train Wreck’s from Becky’ Cajun Cafe. After getting them, we headed back to Indy Hall to eat and have some old Zin, along with cured meats. Before heading home, I stopped at Di Bruno’s in south Philly for cured meat and cheese for cured meat and cheese. The last stop was Isgro’s to get two cannoli’s.

Apr 26 – Was in kitchen toasting Wegmans Tuscan garlic bread for sandwich with roasted pork and pickled veggies while watching Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” on CNN, which is a clip show from last years shows. CNN is getting ready for the premier of this season tonight at 9 PM. Ran over to DuPont Circles farmers market (saw chef Jose Andres) and then to the Georgetown Flea Market. On my way to Good Fortune Supermarket, I stopped at Pho 75 for a small bowl of round-eye and fatty brisket with extra noodles. Once done there went to Clarendon Apple Store to get a replacement the iPhone 4S for the iPhone 4S that I got eight days ago. The problem was with the wifi antennae. Now spending the night restoring the phone.

Apr 27 – Catching up with Twitter while half-watching what’s going on on the TV about police and protestors in Baltimore. Did additional reading on how to use VoiceIver on an iPhone to make accessibility testing easier?

Apr 28 – Sitting in my buddy Tony’s basement with him, Barry, Lori, Jim, and myself drinking two Matt Cline “Three” Zinfandel wine, Merlot, and a Sauterne. Worked on a quick demo of how to display a mobile version of datasets and for the desktop.

Apr 29 – ENTERED – 04/30/2015 – standing  at the corner of M St. and 1st St. NE in front the Harris Teeter talking about DC’s bike share with Kevin Cole after the Accessibility Innovation meet-up at Tynan Tea shop, listened to two talks. The first was about a company that is helping people with disabilities. While demoing one product and looking at their other one realized why not add a suction cup to hold the pill-holding tool to a surface so a one-handed person can open bottles. The room started laughing, and the two guys thought it was brilliant.  Told them I’d like one of the first prototypes and they said sure. Guess I should have patented it when I got home.

Apr 30 – Updating my phone’s calendar to pick-up my car Friday night at Landmark Honda after work, while watching “The Big Bang Theory”. Spent time today reviewing a few PDFs.


In the future, I plan to post this information once a month at the beginning of the following month once I’m caught up.

Hopefully, this has been helpful to you and gets you to keep track of what you do a particular time of the day, along with a short daily diary.

If you want to meet up to do something exciting at 8:15 PM some evening, please leave a comment. Or a suggestion of something that is not part of my ordinary life you think I should do.
