What’s this about the release of DreamPress 2? Dreamhost’s managed WordPress environment recently got revved with some cool features. Files are now stored and served up from speedy SSD drives. Automatic daily backups appear to be newly added, and of course, there’s all the other performance enhancing features that got even better. Nice. Very nice.
Long story short, I passed on these Adidas Response running shoes I found at Ross. I was surprised to see Adidas decked out with their Boost technology already discounted. The shoe was comfortable in the heel and midfoot but tight in the toebox. Even after going a half size up, my toes still felt crammed […]

Perhaps it’s only coincidental. Perhaps brands already had these items lined up for the summer of ’15. But have you noticed the Hawaii motif items coming to market? Is this due in part to one-local-boy-turned-Titan, Marcus Mariota? I’m not talking about custom made Nikes but rather the rash of kicks featuring Hawaiian camo, aloha, hot […]

Here’s what Dictionary.com says about this trio: Basically, insure, ensure, and assure mean to make a person or thing more sure. Insure should be restricted […]
Much too hard is the answer. So I wanted to make copies, actually smaller versions of a school photo. From a color 8×10 photo, I needed a 4×6 and some 3×5 sizes. First, I call Target to see if they have photo services. I was ensured they have a photo kiosk near Customer Service. I […]
Maybe it’s purely coincidental or it may be an effect of Hawaii-born Marcus Mariota, but Nike has been releasing several Hawaii-themed goods. There’s the Mahalo Marcus shirt, and now there’s the Air Huarache “Aloha” and Roshe One Print for the women. Then there’s the “hot lava” colorways like this Air Jordan 5 for girls. The […]
