The First Real Ride of Spring

Yesterday was the first real ride of spring. The weather was perfect, and the Todd and I headed north up the coast for a bit, then across the Mayport Ferry, before heading back to Sippers and having some coffee. It was a great ride. I love the winding road once you get past the Zoo and Cruise ship terminals, and Herschel heads out onto blunt island. The views are fantastic, and it stays interesting all ...

Sublime Pelican Plugin

Wow. If you, like me, are a Sublime convert, and a Pelican blogger, then this wonderful plugin is a must.

The plugin adds several Pelican commands to the command palette creating shortcuts for article creation and adding tags.

The best, and for me, the most useful part is the tag insert feature. It pulls all the tags from the site content and makes an easy to search and use list.

Enjoy!

Jealous Car

Yes, I’ve mentioned it before, I love my Prius. It’s a great car and I’m not ashamed to say it. I love the cool technology and the pleasant ride, and I love the great mileage. It is a terrific car.

But, I do love, lust after, and dream of the Porsche 911. Yes, it’s Porsche, like Portia.

What a lovely car.

So I had to park next to this lovely machine ...

Bootstrap Theme and Pelican

The Bootstrap theme for Pelican, pelican-bootstrap3 has come a long way. It looks great, but I really want to make the site my own. So I’m starting from scratch…sort of. I started with the default pelican theme, simple, and I’m adding in the pieces of the pelican-bootstrap theme that I like. So the theme will be strongly based on the terrific theme by Daan Debie.

I spent some time this weekend experimenting ...

Catchup

It has been a while since I've posted anything. Some fun stuff going on, so here are some updates.

I finished NaNoWriMo 2013 as a winnner! What a fun challenge. Everyone should give it a try. If you have ever thought of writing a novel, start thinking about it now for the 2014 NaNoWriMo. Start roughing out an outline.

NaNoWriMo Continues

Writing is going well this year. I’ve got some truck-sized plot holes to deal with, but I’m tweaking the outline as I go and plugging away at the word count.

Last weekend’s NaNoThon activities helped me catch up and make some solid progress.

It’s funny how the mind works. I can easily ignore the environment around me, but when I sit down to write all I can think about is how ...

MPRP Pause and NaNoWriMo

There isn’t a new MPRP podcast today. NaNoWriMo is set to start in a few days, and I plan to participate again this year. I did NaNoWriMo in 2009 and really enjoyed it. The pace is good, and it is easy to commit to a month.

I’m going to continue to record episodes of the MPRP podcast as time allows, but I doubt I will be able to keep the twice a week ...

Calm River

The river is very calm this morning. It’s chilly (down right cold for Florida!), and the wind is still, the sky clear. It’s a beautiful morning.

Work and life have been on the stressful side lately, and the calm river is a good reminder this morning to bring the calm inside.

Like other moods or emotions, calm is infectious. Be the source of calm in your life.

Enjoy!
