Why not offer customers what they actually need?

I recently switched mobile phone plans and it got me wondering if it isn’t time for providers to change plan features. My new provider was touting a plan with a few hundred minutes of calling, a few hundred texts, and 1GB of data and they were so proud of it. I wasn’t impressed; all the […]

How many words does it take?

I never liked when my teachers would assign 1000-word essays or 3-page papers or any other kind of writing that had to have a certain length.  As one who hated grading papers in graduate school as well as when I was a professor, I definitely appreciate the upper limit but even that should be a […]

iPhone Reminders App

Despite my protests to the contrary, I do not have a great memory for one-time tasks. I like to think that I have so many grand thoughts going through my head that I simply cannot be bothered by such narrowly defined things. Fortunately, the iPhone was made with geniuses such as myself in mind. Enter […]

iFamily: Shared Calendars

Between us and our children, we have to keep track of rehearsals for dance, strings, band, and Praise Team and performances for all the above. Add to that doctor appointments, meetings, volunteering, and social events. Despite our ferocious defense of our family calendar, we get busy. Here comes the calendar app to the rescue. One […]

“Find My iFamily” app

One of my favorite iPhone features is the “Find My iPhone” app. As of last month, everyone in my household has an iPhone and, while it hasn’t revolutionized anything, it has simplified my life a little. All the devices are registered to a single account: mine. So, I can find out where my family is […]

The Official Seminar Announcement

It’s official!  The new edition of AACPL’s “Library Happenings” is out and it mentions my free seminar at West County Library.  Yep, that’s me on page 7, center of the page, right after the announcement about Don Kerr’s car care clinic.  (Don happens to be my mechanic and he launched out on his own last year. […]

More about AACPS Forms

Hey, Parents!  Perhaps you can relate.  We have three children.  That means that we complete the Anne Arundel County Public Schools Emergency Notification form in triplicate every year.  So that also means that we (well, my wife) have cramped hands on the second day of school. Last year, it really struck me how ridiculous it […]

AACPS Forms

Just uploaded my AACPS School form pages (http://ezforms.wchristian.com).  I’m running off to work, so I’ll say more about that later.  And before you tell me, I know I need a higher resolution image of the school form, but I think it looks good anyway.  And, yes, I need a prettier interface, but that’s cosmetic and […]

Why do a FREE seminar?

I just picked up dinner at this restaurant around the corner.  The catfish tasted great, as did the cheese grits and the cajun corn!  I would point you to the website, but I can’t.  They don’t have a website yet even though they’ve been open for maybe two months.  That’s a shame because the menu […]

Seminar Information Online

I updated the page about the seminar.  Hopefully, it has all the information that you need so you will decide to come. It’s very late.  So, in a future post, I’ll let you know how this thing came about.  For now, though, check out the seminar page.
