Progress Report #10

This won’t be a full progress report – I don’t have much time to go into details, but one of the things that is changing on my site drastically over the next few weeks is the reorganization of my various articles and posts, driving an eventual redesign of the site itself.

This was something you may have seen a prior article on, mentioning some efforts to streamline things. At this stage, I’ve nearly completed the consolidation of all my article categories, and in the future, I’ll elaborate on the content of articles via tagging, which I’ve learned is the correct way to do things on here.

So at any rate, I am not removing any articles, but at some points you might see them disappear and later reappear as I take some steps to sort things out.

So please, pardon the bit of a mess while I improve the site…

Drone Flights

This past weekend, I began the process of getting familiar with my new acquisition, a DJI Mavic Pro Platinum drone. The ultimate goal is, of course, to turn this into a commercial venture – indeed I already have a few potential clients for this in the near future. In the meantime, though, I will be doing some flights for fun, predominantly capturing footage and photos at various locations.

Most of this will be published on my personal YouTube Channel, and I’ll link them in articles. For now, here are my first two.

Quick Note

I’ll be doing some major re-organization to the site (hopefully) in the next few weeks, especially as the holidays get closer. One of the major changes I’m already working on is tagging articles and simplifying categories. Once all of that is done, I’ll be making changes to the look and feel of the site to make better use of those changes.

So you might not see a lot of new content while my time is divided up a lot, but hopefully once the holidays roll around, I can get those things all handled and move on other projects that needed to be placed on hold.

Working on Health

My wife decided on a fantastic gift for me for our anniversary. This isn’t really a new thing; she always does fantastic things for me when it comes to gifts. I never got something from her that wasn’t absolutely fantastic.

This year was no exception; and in fact, it may be one of the best gifts I’ve received, other than her hand in marriage. Seriously, that’s still the best.

But for a fantastic runner-up, she bought me a Fitbit Versa 2. If you’re not familiar with this device (I was only moderately familiar with the Fitbit), it’s a combination of a smart watch, pedometer, heart-monitor and much more. I’d known people with them, but as a person who is not much in the habit of wearing watches, I didn’t really put too much into looking into them as I often couldn’t remember to put one on most mornings over the last 5 years.

That’s a horrible thing, to be honest, because my wife got me another smart watch and I love it, but I was so out of the habit that it was hard for me to remember to wear it. I do still use it when I can, but again, my mind being what it is (not good), I miss the opportunity.

That’s changed because of this snazzy little gizmo. I have worn this device daily since getting it, with the sole exception of a day I was sick and really didn’t leave my bed to begin with.

Any even that’s a change, because I have started wearing this to bed. It tracks sleep patterns pretty well, and as a person with sleep apnea and psycho-physiological insomnia, a good night’s sleep is a rare occurrence. With all of that said, this is another great feature to the present I got.

Combined with the fact that this device is even water-proof, my wife has proven once again just how wise she is – in addition to being hot. So at any rate, I just needed to put this out here; if you or someone you know is in need of assistance to get healthy, check these out. At $199, they might sound steep, but I’m telling you that is a price most definitely worth while. I intend to get my wife one soon so we can start tracking our health progress and improvements together.

Thanks, baby!
