Parenting tip of the day

Never give your iDevice to your kids to amuse themselves playing games.

They will get you so far ahead in levels that you'll find the game unplayable.

Conversation of the day

The mind of a twelve year old girl in action...

V: [seeing something thawing in the sink] Is that spaghetti sauce?

J: Yes.

V: Are we having spaghetti for dinner?

Things they teach in MBA school

Picture this:

You're a smartphone maker. You're two years behind the competition, and your flagship product can't compete with anybody anymore. So, you hide out in the garage building something new. Something that is only nine months behind the competition.

And then, days before your big release day, you announce that you're thinking about selling off your hardware and/or your software assets.

Nothing says "commitment to your customers" like selling the platform out from under them.

Crisis at the LCBO

My local LCBO is out of Kilkenny, and there's curling on TV this weekend.  Smithwicks will have to stand in, I guess...

Conversation of the day

Bet you didn't know I was a Mormon.  It's true.  I have three wives...

When I got home from work yesterday I tossed all the empty beer and wine bottles that were cluttering up the garage into the back of the car, so I would remember to take them in today.

On the way to V's curling practice after dinner, the bottles were rattling around.

F: What is THAT NOISE?!?!?

Me: It's all the empty bottles in the back.

V: Well, you should take those back someday!

F: Yeah, it's REALLY LOUD!!

Me: Yes, dears.
