Thoughts in My Head

Sunday Sunrise

Brought this paint-by-number last week, and quickly realized that my pride level is intermediate, but my skill level is a beginner

Pods Against a Blue Sky

My First Mac

My First Mac

The Fortieth Anniversary of Apple has been written and discussed exhaustively on tech podcasts and blogs. The one question that was asked on any Mac-centric podcast was, when did you get your first Mac?. This got me thinking about my history with the Mac. I got my first Mac around 2005 or 2006. It was a Mac Mini. Mac Mini March 2009.

I’m pretty sure it was the Intel version. I remember it came with a Tiger cd. I was coming from a beige Compaq PC running Windows XP. I remember it took a while for me to get used to the Mac way of doing things. Since then, I have only used a Windows machine at work.

Had an excellent old fashion diner breakfast yesterday with a nice cup of coffee at Chet’s diner.

This passage from Orphan Train hit me hard this morning

My grand niece had her first day at kindergarten today. Yes I am feeling old.

Death Among Life

Dead tree in the middle of live trees

I watched the Spanish thriller God’s Crooked Lines yesterday afternoon. It kept me interested from beginning to end. This movie’s critical scene is the letter reading in the beginning. Throughout this movie, you are trying to determine when the main character is telling the truth and lying. Even in the end, the answer is not clear. IMG 3427 πŸŽ₯

Spoke Design Roady Curacao Model 2 Review

Today I received the Roady Curacao Model 2 from Spoke Design. It is a ballpoint pen. The cap and barrel are made of anodized aluminum, and the grip has ridges and is made of bright titanium.

This pen is made to post, and there is a magnet at the cap’s end, making that easy and secure. It uses any Parker-style refill. It is shipped with a premium Uni Jetstream SXR-600-07 Black 0.7mm refill. I have only briefly been writing with the Roady Curacao Model, but I am already in love with it. It feels balanced and well-made in my hand. I love how smoothly it writes. Some people would say paying $60.00 for a ballpoint pen is ridiculous when you can get a whole pack of Bic pens for around $7.00. This is true; the difference is that twenty years from now, I could pick up the Roady Curacao Model 2 I received today and write with it. The Bic pen would be dust by then. If I can keep from losing it, this pen will be in my rotation for a long time.
