  Oh, Steve, how we’ve loved you.  Steve has been the default player on Minecraft since it’s inception.  It was originally intended to be a genderless block person, but when asked what the “Minecraft Guy’s” name was, creator Markus Persson jokingly…

Yoga 3 - Smart TV Lifehack #ihackedlife http://familyte.ch/1QHmdwb

Everyone says how harmful it can be for children to have a TV in their room, or even a computer.  Some days though, you can really wish that you could have the main family TV all to yourself, or even just a few minutes of peace and quiet to get something…

What are your #TextsfromMom

I love spending time with my Mom, sometimes for the mere fact of getting some great blog post fodder.  Like the day she asked me what the cloud was and if she needed to pay to get it.  You can always bet she’ll have at least one of those gems tucked away…

Amazing new app for Alzheimer’s patients http://familyte.ch/1EJqIEi

There is nothing quite so heartbreaking as a loved one losing their memory.  I only have one grandparent still alive, and at 92 she is a firecracker.  Her mind, however, isn’t quite what it used to be.  While she hasn’t developed Alzheimer’s, she…
