Hard at work getting ready for the 2015 Big Android BBQ Developer Conference. A bunch of us from the Android team at Google are going to be there, along with some of the best smoked meats ever made available at a developer conference.

I reckon this will be one event you don't want to miss.

I'm thinking clogs and tulips would be more fitting. The weather won't be as nice either.

A lifetime ago, my best friend and I took on the world together. A pair of Tolkien nerds with a functional understanding of chainmaille, blacksmithing, and medieval combat. We were addicted to a time that wasn't ours, and had great plan for sharing that knowledge with the world for a living. It was naive, but amazing.

When reality set in and we shifted focus to creating families and building careers, knowing that we never grew apart was important. He continued blacksmithing professionally, and I moved on to be a Sys Ad who did chainmaille at his desk. Free time was spent talking about ways we could drop everything and pursue the life we originally planned, even if it was just something we could do on weekends.

I got a phone call early one Saturday from his wife, who between sobs told me he had died in a terrible car accident. It took me years to learn how to move beyond that loss, during which time an injury to my arm took away the only thing that tethered me to the life I once had. The only way I could cope for a long time was shutting everything about that part of my life out and walk away.

The little girl in this photo is his daughter, who was in the womb when he passed. She's amazing, and I kind of hate myself for missing her grow as much as she has. There's a lot more to her life that I can be a part of though, and I'm genuinely looking forward to it.

The most under the radar cut of meat. What's a shame is that not long ago butchers were giving these away for a song, but now they're getting to the $5-7/lb range.

When you get to the checkout counter and only the 12 items or less counter is open and everyone behind my overflowing shopping cart is glaring at me, but also everything else happening on the Internet right now.

I will see myself out.

Love how many people now just automatically tag me in Deadpool posts. Google+ has become my RSS feed for all things Deadpool. Nicely done, everyone.

Story
Tagline
I write things.
Introduction
I accidentally became a tech blogger, who then accidentally became an Author. Or something. Maybe. I'm never quite sure one way or the other. Hi.

If you're here for the writer bits, I cover mobile tech primarily. Sometimes I just pick stuff up and go with it though, there's really no rhyme or reason to it. 

My posts will also include the random thoughts of a Husband and Father of three. I won't bother to convince you we are the same person. 
Bragging rights
I will try anything twice. Once to see if it is a bad idea, and once more just to be absolutely certain it was a bad idea.

Everything about the food at this place was amazing. The Bang Bang Shrimp, the Crab Pompano, and the fantastic coconut creme pie for desert was perfect. I will absolutely be returning to this restaurant.
