Ted’s Travels

Ted’s Travels

Today I checked my account on kayak.com where I send all of my trip receipts. This allows me to track my travels in a phone app while I am out and about. Turns out they now have some infographic-style data they give you about your travel history.

This is my 2nd old motor rebuild. A 1947 2.5 hp Johnson Seahorse. I didn’t crank it up before taken it apart so I don’t know know how she will run yet…

Hobbies and other pursuits…

Since taking on my role with Missio Nexus I have avoided posting here. It seems like the president of an organization having a separate blog could become a conflict.

My Dearest Wormwood: I understand that you’ve allowed the Enemy’s soldiers to live amongst the people you’ve been set to guard. No doubt it’s nothing at this point and there is time to countermand this advance, but I am truly sorry for it on your behalf. They look like nothing to fear right now: a husband, wife, two small children and a couple of single adults. They can’t speak the tongue of your witless charges and they know nothing of…

Managing Contacts

Managing Contacts

Since giving my “Death by Email” seminar a few years back I have been asked the question, “How do you manage contacts?” many times. If you look at most of our phones, we have a mess of contacts. If we sync our phones with GMail (or Outlook or Yahoo… take your pick) AND a work email server AND an app or two AND the device’s local contacts… well, you get the idea.
