#72 Let’s Get Excited About The Future Of Technology

Good Morning!

I had to share this awesome podcast episode with you.

I watched a Rogan podcast earlier this year with Lex Fridman.  He’s a professor at MIT, where he lectures on deep learning, artificial intelligence, and programming with respect to self driving vehicles and other technologies.

I’ve been listening and watching his “Artificial Intelligence (AI) Podcast” on a regular basis lately; I find the subject of deep learning fascinating.… Read More “#72 Let’s Get Excited About The Future Of Technology”

#71 Fun with Fusion 360

Good Morning!

I recently moved back to my hometown where I am currently garageless. 

Eh… it’s no so bad really, but because I can’t keep my idle hands busy with welding and fabrication projects like I normally do, I’ve had to turn to my old friend 3D modelling and drafting to fill the void.

If you didn’t know, studied architecture in college and was a draftsman for about 10 years afterwards.  I worked for a gauge and fixture company for a few years and then a structural steel contractor for the rest. 

I never really stopped using various CAD programs.  Whenever I needed to visualize, plan, or design something, I usually use a program like SketchUp that’s quick, but lately I’ve been spending my time with Fusion 360.… Read More “#71 Fun with Fusion 360”

#70 The Battle For Nachos: Salsa vs Salsa Con Queso

Good Morning!

Let me preface by saying that Salsa and Salsa Con Queso are
both awesome, but if I had to choose only one for the rest of time, I’m going
to have to choose plain ol’salsa.

The reason I went with salsa until the end of time is because
of nachos.

It’s hard to believe that there is any food that the amazing cheesy salsa doesn’t taste good with let alone one that is so closely paired with the wonderful tortilla chip.… Read More “#70 The Battle For Nachos: Salsa vs Salsa Con Queso”

#69 Don’t Be Lazy

Good Morning!

Just about every time I want to do just sit down on the couch or hop into bed to relax or de-stress, there is always a couple things that I forgot to do or put off right until the end of the day.

For example, last night while I was walking into the bedroom to get ready to hop into bed, I remembered that I forgot to move my car from the street to the driveway and put the garbage out for the following morning.… Read More “#69 Don’t Be Lazy”

#68 No Regrets In Understanding

Good Morning!

Earlier this year I started writing on a frequent basis in an attempt to quiet my mind organize all of the thoughts rolling around upstairs and their meanings.

Not only to find meaning, but to find a practical sense of direction and purpose in life.

This is essentially how I decided to deal with the proverbial mid-life extensional crisis that most, if not all of us will go through at some point.… Read More “#68 No Regrets In Understanding”

#67 What Size Wire

Good Morning!

I got a question a couple days ago: “If I’m moving my battery to the trunk of the car, can I use the sub / amp cable as the positive lead ?  The previous owner had the car wired for subs but I need space for turbo things.”

To answer this question we need to figure out if the size of the wire that the previous owner of the car used for the stereo is adequate to run the entire electrical system of the vehicle.… Read More “#67 What Size Wire”

#66 Hey Take A Break Eh

Good Morning!

My brother asked some questions about taking breaks from work on social media last week and it got me thinking about a few things: Why do I feel like I need to do my own thing? Why do I need to be my own boss? Why go through all the pain and extra work when I can just go and work for someone else and collect a paycheck?… Read More “#66 Hey Take A Break Eh”

#65 Good-Bye Coffee We Had A Great Run

Good Morning!

I’m pretty sure I was at Grandma’s house the first time I drank coffee. I might have been five or six years old at the time. There were a few of us sitting around the table in the kitchen. So many good memories were made in that place. The last thing I remember someone saying before taking my first sip was something about my growth being stunted.… Read More “#65 Good-Bye Coffee We Had A Great Run”

#64 – A New Direction, Sort Of.

Good Morning!

I haven’t published anything in nearly three weeks. Sorry
for not letting you know what I was doing, that’s all on me.

I’ll be sure to make a post about any future hiatus the next
time around. Either that or I’ll have to prepare some content ahead of time to
keep you busy while I duck out the back for a break.… Read More “#64 – A New Direction, Sort Of.”

#63 Do You Even Eat Bro?

Good Morning!

Welcome to Fit Friday, where I write about a health topic, tell you about the progress in my personal health and fitness journey, what I’m doing at the gym, and some of the meals I’m planning on eating next week.  If you’ve been reading my health blogs so far, the format should be familiar to you already.

Today I’m going to write about my progress so far and reflect on each of the times I saw significant weight-loss progress in my current health and fat-loss journey.… Read More “#63 Do You Even Eat Bro?”
