Wifi Printing Brings A Bit Of Sanity

For several years I had a HP laserjet printer. It was functional. It printed stuff when I needed it, but, unfortunately, whatever drivers it needed did not “play nice” with my Mac and eventually I had to retire it. I mentioned my printer dilemma to a friend a couple of months ago and he suggested a […]

A Bit Of Nostalgia

Years ago I used to have a silver zippo lighter. It wasn’t actual silver, but some kind of bright metal. I’ve no idea what. I had it for years. The hinge broke at one point and somebody fixed it for me, as sending it back to Zippo for repairs wasn’t something that entered our minds […]

A Quiet Family Christmas

Christmas is one of the few times of the year when a lot of us wind down and disconnect (more or less). It’s a time for seeing family and friends and overindulging.. This year wasn’t any different and I’m delighted to say I’ve barely left the house for the last few days. Christmas dinner was […]

Washington DC In December

For the past couple of years I’ve made a point of taking a few days off in November or December. It’s an odd time of the year, but it works well for me. This year I’m in Washington DC and while it’s pretty cold out there, it’s not freezing, so I can move around quite […]

Best Wifi Printer?

I work from home from some of the time and have had a basic “home office” setup for years. When I used to use Windows and / or Linux I was able to print to the laser printer I had. Unfortunately it’s a rather old model which isn’t supported by any recent version of OSX […]

Belgian Beef Stew

When I’m on the road I like to try the local cuisine. This week I was in Brussels, so on the way back I grabbed lunch at one of the restaurants before security in Brussels Airport. Belle & Belge has a nice selection of Belgian food and had proper tables and chairs etc., which were […]

Enjoying Mexican Cuisine

I’m lucky enough to travel quite a bit for work and this week I’m in Mexico City. Since I knew that the jetlag would “destroy” me and render me completely useless, I flew out a couple of days early. So I’ve spent the weekend here in Mexico City seeing some of the sights, wandering the […]
