Home, Ten Years On

Today marks a big milestone for us: we’ve lived in this house for 10 years. We moved in December 23, 1999 (only four months later than the builder’s original promise!).

Where are we?

Hi, folks. I see that we haven’t posted here in more than a month. Previously, we’ve always managed to post at least one item a week, ever since we started this blog in November of 1999, back in the Dawn of Bloggy Time. Bad bloggers; no biscuit. There’s no special reason for the hiatus; we’ve […]

Three week iPhone evaluation

Still great. That is all. OK, it isn’t. Since the last time I posted, I’ve picked up a few more apps (All right, a lot more apps).
