The news that I’ve feared for some time was announced today.

The Beyond the Gates festival has been postponed to 2022.

Not surprising given the current situation, but damn it would be fun with a festival in August.

As I’m watching the crew arrive at ISS live on YouTube, I tell my son how cool it is that we can watch this live.

“Sure, it’s cool and all, but I’m playing online with my friends. That’s cool!.”


I watched Howl’s Moving Castle with my youngest daughter this morning.

We’ve now watched all the movies of Hayao Miyazaki that she’s old enough to watch.

Watching these movies with her, some of them many times, is a memory I’ll bring with me long after she has left home. ❤️

Talking about the Apple Watch ⌚️, yesterday I got my first Braided Solo Loop band.

The band fits perfectly and is really comfortable. A bit expensive, but so have some of the other bands been.

I’m really glad I looked at the sizing guide at Daring Fireball.

Has frontend become much more complex the last couple of years? Absolutely!

My dad died on Thursday. He was found dead in his bed at the hospital.

He’d been sick for a long time, with cancer, but he had beaten every prognosis many times. Not anymore.

My dad was a good dad.

My son (8) had a widget showing a single number on his iPhone.

I asked what it was.

“It’s the number of days until Trump is gone.”
