Time For Some Windex

I’m interrupting my normally unscheduled software development posts to make an exciting announcement. I’ve been holding back, waiting to see it in print before saying much but now that I have a comp copy in-hand I’m not holding back any more.

My “Time for some Windex” photo is featured on a page of its own in the Wild section of the May 2011 issue of National Geographic Magazine! I haven’t seen the issue on shelves yet but I expect it will be available within a few days.


At Least One of Us Still Drives a MINI

When we were browsing Babies “R” Us for our baby registry what seems forever ago this bouncer really caught my eye because it looked just like my MINI. We added it to the registry and were fortunate enough to have someone buy it for Nadia.

Shortly after she was born we realized that the Prius was too small to haul the stroller and well, anything else. That meant that if we wanted to go anywhere we were going to need a bigger vehicle. A few days later I was trading in the MINI for a Hyundai Santa Fe.

Esther and I eventually traded vehicles. The Prius is a great car with all of the amenities but it’s nothing like the MINI. I get envious every time I see one on the road and there are plenty of them around here so it’s pretty much a daily occurrence. I guess for now I’ll just have to live vicariously through her for a while.
