day 3558: two birds in the hand…

…are worth four in the bush?

day 3558: and yet still more hockey.

the regular season of hockey ended and ouru local arena is in the process of taking down the ice but the fun never ends for us! while we’re not doing The Neverending Hockey Season again this year, odin is going to a seven week bluedevils AAA hockey development camp, so we get to drive an […]

day 3557: attempting to teach frida to not eat The New Girls.

after we sent the last flock to a nice amish family we thought we’d get some new chickens soon but then frida came into our lives and we decided a new puppy and new chickens was a bit too much to take on at the same time. so we decided to wait until spring had […]

day 3529: sort-of slowly learning to play as a team before the state championships.

i enjoy sitting in the penalty box. it’s easy volunteer work – you just open the door when a player gets a penalty to let them in the box and let them out when the time is up. hearing the coaches interact with the players offers a unique perspective on the game. i can’t imagine […]

odin wuz here.

day 3499: yet another exciting round of The Dictionary Game before bed.

day 3480: the first day odin played offense and scored a goal.

reminiscing about seeing the future of mobile with a danger sidekick while sitting in the neonatal intensive care unit.

scott knaster, now at google wrote a nice post about working at danger in the early days where he notes, “The Hiptop (in product form as the TMobile Sidekick) was my first indication that people would soon be getting lost in their phones.” in fact, the sidekick was the first time i saw the future […]
