I recently submitted iCarc v1.2 to the App Store and it was approved a couple of days ago. It comes with a few interface improvements, especially on the Tiles page shown above.

For more information, see the App page here.

I've already received some feedback from customers and am planning a number of really exciting features for v1.3. Join the Facebook fan page to keep up to date with what's going on, as well as the iCarc Twitter account.

William: Six Months!

William at six months old!

Today marks six months since William was born, and what a cutie he's turning into. He's been sitting up on his own for at least a few weeks now and has a lot of fun playing with toys along with Charlotte.

Life hasn't been all smiles though, as he went through a number of days of teething, but the first tooth has finally poked through and things are back to normal... until the next tooth anyway!

William has also been getting the family favorite, Milupa rice cereal, once a day and he gobbles it like it's all the food he's had all day (actually, it is, the rest is milk!). Today he's starting with other baby foods as well, sort of on a meal by meal basis. Before we know it, he'll be eating pizza along with the rest of us.

Anyway, we are very pleased with William's progress and look forward to watching him grow up. Next up, seven months, moving swiftly towards that big first year birthday!

September 11th, Nine Years Later

✈ + ▌▌= The biggest mistake 19 terrorists ever made!

Once again we reach the one day in the year that reminds us most of the day the world changed nine years ago. Nine! And as always, my blog post to go along with it.

While most are moving on with their busy lives, being lulled by the passage of time, I feel like part of an ever-shrinking group of people who still realize the danger that awaits just out of sight from any number of people and groups intent on the destruction of the country and way of life we love.

And so I make a call to all our readers: Be aware of what's going on around you. Think critically about what you see and hear, and especially about what people say. Above all, stand up for yourself and others, and against all who threaten what you have. Never Forget.

BBQ: Appy, Meal, Dessert

This summer has been an interesting one for the BBQ. I've baked french fries when it was too hot to do it indoors, and experimented with more fish than any previous year. Another breakthrough was the discovery of whole pork loin which I can cut into steaks myself for inexpensive and delicious meals.

This week has taken it even further, as I have managed to make an appetizer, and a dessert on the BBQ.

The appy: Grilled watermelon.

This one surprised us a lot. I was unsure of the result but did it spur of the moment just to see what it would do. It's simple. Brush with olive oil, grill a few minutes each side, then sprinkle with sea salt and ground pepper! I read some other recipes that included honey and lime which could be really good too.

The dessert: Grilled peaches.

This one was tasty, an excellent summer dessert. Halve your peaches and drizzle with balsamic vinegar (really!) and brown sugar. Do this an hour or two before if you can. Make sure your peaches are ripe but not too soft. Grill face down for a few minutes, then flip for a few minutes on the other side. When you flip them, sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar on the open sides and let it melt. Serve with icecream, enjoy!

Basically, I'm starting to wonder if there's anything reasonable that can't be made on a grill. I'm going to keep experimenting. So far it's been worth it!
