When’s the last time you cleaned up your WordPress blog’s database? Over time, things build up that you don’t see, but can cause performance issues. The good news is that it’s easy to clean up. I use the Optimize Database after Deleting Revisions plugin and it works beautifully. Granted, always make a backup first just in...

Accelerated Mobile Pages (or AMP) are the latest way in which Google and others are trying to make the web faster. Turns out, the more features you add to a site, the slower it gets. Since no-one wants to simplify their website, AMP pages were born. They’re a stripped down version of your website that...

So many choices. I won’t be getting one with internet on it though as I don’t see it working after a few years.

Lily’s second grade class, and myself as a chaperone, went to visit the City of Watertown today and learned all about how things work around here. They got to sit in the back of a police car, learn about how emergency responders work and their tools, learn about the water/sewer system, and more. I learned...

I’ve been struggling with fitness trackers recently trying to figure out which ones are accurate. Turns out the issue isn’t always with the trackers, but where we wear them. Why do we wear them on our wrist? Who’s bright idea was it to track steps by putting something on your arm? If your fitness tracker...

There’s a lot of conversations about Apple removing the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and for good reason. There’s a lot of good corded headphones out there and a good set of Bluetooth headphones can be expensive. The good news is that you can turn your corded headphones into Bluetooth headphones with an inexpensive adapter....

We now have a new dog in our home. His name is Marshmallow and he’s a Bichon Frise. What’s really nice is that he’s a hypoallergenic dog so no allergies! Marshmallow is an active dog and we think he’s 2-3 years old. He’s pretty house trained but doesn’t know how to sit or anything like...

Another great time at the Minnesota State Fair! This year we went in the afternoon so Lily could see the midway lights at night and she thought they were awesome. It’s always a great time at the fair! Thomas

Another wonderful year! This years birthday theme was under the sea. We had a shark fruit bowl, shark photo spot, fish water, treasure hunt, and jewelry making to name a few. Love this little girl to pieces.

The recent heavy rains in the area has forced the South Fork Crow river in and around Watertown, MN to spill out of its banks. It’s only minor flooding at this time and shouldn’t get too much worse. The good news is that so far, all areas under water aren’t that important. The city has...

After I killed my FitBit, I decided try out the Xiaomi Mi Band. I’ve only had it for a week, but my first impressions are that it’s a great tracker at an extremely cheap price. The setup of the Mi Band was pretty simple. Granted, it did arrive with a dead battery so I charged...

There were a lot of discussions and tears on Friday as we had to make the hard decision to return Archie to where we came from. It wasn’t that we didn’t want him, in fact he was a great dog. The issue was that whatever he was mixed with was causing my wife to have...

About a week after I finally persuaded myself to get Fantastical 2 for the Mac, it dropped in price. For most software I wouldn’t care, but when it’s $50 to start with, that $10 price drop is significant. Now technically Apple doesn’t have any price guarantees. Prices for products offered via the Services may change...

My wife saw it at the store and picked it up for us. It’s just as good as I remember. You can go get Crystal Pepsi in the store Right Now! That’s right, it’s back baby!
