Since moving to the area, we’ve noticed that Farmer’s Markets are a big thing around here. We have the Holly Springs Farmer’s Market, which is open weekly during the spring and summer; they’re open during winter, but it’s bi-weekly. The town of Apex (just down the road) has the Apex Farmer’s Market during the summer. Fuquay […]
These posts are about me or my family.
I love autumn but this stinks. We didn’t have this problem in Florida.
Last night was our first Halloween here in Holly Springs. My wife loves holidays, and this one ranks near the top. She loves to decorate and she lives for handing out candy to all the little kids in cute costumes. When we moved into our new house in Jacksonville back in 2008, she bought the best candy, […]
We’re still having problems with Spectrum (Time Warner Cable). They still don’t have solutions. We’re kind of at the point where we aren’t sure what to do anymore. For 2-3 days per week, our mail clients (personal, work-related, etc.) repeatedly fail to authenticate to outbound mail servers. In short, we can receive mail but we […]
One of the few sacrifices we made in deciding to put an offer on our current house was garage size. We wanted a garage that was 22×24 or larger, but most houses in our price range have the typical 20×20 garage. They aren’t big enough for parking two cars on a daily basis, so we […]

It draws a pretty significant crowd each year — last year reaching its second highest ever attendance with 1,028,364 visitors. The record was in 2010 when it saw 1,091,887 people attend. It’s held at the State Fairgrounds in […]
We had Comcast for internet service in Jacksonville. We loved their service but cringed every time we had to talk with their customer support. We were ecstatic when we moved to an area not serviced by Comcast. I can’t say we’re much happier with Spectrum (Time Warner Cable). We started internet and phone service with […]
In addition to being my son’s third birthday, there was was also a solar eclipse today. Here in central NC, we were expecting about 94% totality, which I mistakenly assumed that meant it would get fairly dark. Apparently 6% of unobstructed light from a star is still pretty significant. My son is currently home sick […]
Inarguably, one of the most important pieces of the GTD methodology for time and task management is the weekly review. This critical ritual involves the practitioner ensuring that inboxes are emptied, reviewing his or her lists and making necessary adjustments to projects and tasks so that contexts, priorities, next actions and other elements are accurate. All […]
