June 26th, 2017

File_000(1)

Recently, I picked up an iPhone for my Daughter which was long overdue.  With that the magical wifi suddenly appeared at home where they live and opened up the iron curtain.  This allows her to be free with communication between her friends and her and also more importantly with them for me.  I also have my older iPhone to my son since his iPod magically disappeared for many weeks after he was able to connect it to wifi at home.  It magically reappeared.  Anyways… he has my old iPhone to log into wifi at home to message me which has been sweet.

I broke out my Daughter from school one day and we went to the mall to pick up her phone and set it up and download the apps she wants and we hit “bucks” to get a fancy whipped cream drink.

Spotify | Playlists | The Standard Morning + Afternoon Playlists

May 10th, 2017

tumblr_o89lndseNT1r1xpwxo1_r1_500

You can find me here.

Downloading the MAC or WINDOWS desktop version is sweet.  Easy to listen to music when you are on the computer at home working and surfing.  Spotify is free.  Other blog posts with posts featuring some playlists can be found here.

Here is the introduction to some of my playlists.

Morning Mixes:

6AM Vibe:  Consists of the quiet peaceful songs of the morning when you don’t want to talk and maybe lie in bed a bit till you have to get up.  These songs is a smaller cross section of what I’m currently listening to when I first get up.

9AM Vibe:  Ok coffee is made and I’m puttering and the songs are still quiet but they have an ever so lightly kick to them.  It’s safe to talk since the coffee is poured.  If you dig this mix you can follow it on Spotify.  Feel free to drop me a line if you fall in love with an Artist or a song.

Afternoon Mixes:

12PM Vibe:  Ok time to get shit done a little.  Windows are open and these songs are faster and perfect for the start of the midday.  These smaller vibe playlists is more of my current mix that is tighter.  You can also steam the radio version of the Afternoon mixes that is over 10 hours of music.  More like putting on the radio and hitting shuffle is a must.  You can find that on my spotify playlists.

3PM Vibe:  Errands and getting stuff done.  A little faster than the 12PM vibe with more energy.  Again just a smaller sample of what I’m listening to right now.  I’m always adding in more songs and taking some out.

On my profile… I have Morning Radio (12 hours) + Afternoon Radio (10 hours ) Playlists that you can just shuffle with other songs that fit the category.

This is not a beautiful hiking video | A Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike from Peter H on Vimeo.

“This is not a beautiful hiking video. It’s more about heat, pain, hunger, mountains, lakes, sweat, dirt, freedom, and friendship. Actually, it’s about walking. A long distance. For a long time.”

Watch Peter’s journey on the PCT.

Any.Do | Excellent To Do Lists | Phone App

March 22nd, 2017

 

To.do (my new app)

I’m a big user of Evernote and I have some tasks in Evernote that I use to see what I need to focus on.  Since Evernote is great for cloud based note taking and reference tool… it’s not the best for noting down “to-do’s” and doesn’t load quickly.

I will schedule a task using Calendar mostly if I want to block of some time to do a certain task…

With this new app… I can open it every morning and see what I need to do today or start to get “baby steps” going on something so it can be completed.  So it’s easy to postpone and pick when this task needs to be done or when I need to be reminded.

“To.do” is it.  It’s simple and easy.

AnyDo-screenshot-2015

The iPhone has a remarkable number of iPhone to-do app options, but one of them shines above the rest. Any.DO is our top pick thanks to its ease of use and smart feature set.  Any.do is a sharp, good-looking mobile to-do list manager.

“Moment,” a short review of everything you have on your table for the day. It also tries to keep your to-do list from getting overwhelming, and really shows you “today,” “tomorrow,” and “later,” so you don’t get overwhelmed by dates and times. It handles multiple priorities, and it integrates nicely with Cal, the calendar app from the same team.
