Daily financials

Just look at how studious this kid is, as he reviews the morning’s newsfeeds over a glass of biomoo while awaiting breakfast to be served by the parentals. This would be the “AAPL’s doing what now?” as he reviews the daily financials before markets opened. Actually AAPL was bottom-fishing post-split that day, but did end […]

Knowing your name

That quote actually comes from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. I have to admit that I have never seen an episode and while I have seen him reprising the titular role on an epside of Top Chef Texas, I generally associate Paul Reubens with his role as Amylin (you can watch how he steals the scene here).

Not a lesson for the Micro-Dragon, but for the pater. We have been playing around with expanding the palate and list of accessible foodstuffs while he’s currently still away from proto-school.

This is the face of an exasperated one-year-old. Why the consternation? Well, as he’s getting older his ability to verbalize continues to develop and he’s now at a point where he can clearly, repeatedly and contextually use four words. We can feel your puzzlement. What’s the big deal – it’s only four words, right? Well, […]

Guy thing

This is Liam Wallace doing the genetic guy thing, including a pretty good impression of Andy Serkis and “My Precious” (that would be photo number five).   And this would be Liam Wallace doing the genetic guy thing after being advised that it isn’t his to keep and control forever and ever.

Using an iPad

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) makes a big deal about how their iDevices are game changers in the market segments they get introduced to, and they’re right because their technology has dramatically changed the landscape as the late iSteve first introduced the world to the iPod, then the iPhone, and most recently the iPad. That latter device […]
