Tues 05.21.13 – My Grandpa has been in the hospital for the last 5 days and the way my Mom and I have been dealing with it is to go to Dog Beach after visiting the hospital.
The best thing we saw was a small pod of dolphins surfing the waves and the adults were teaching a young dolphin to surf in the wave. It was lovely. Unfortunately, due to sun glint on the waves from my angle (see Belle photo above), I was not able to get a photo with the dolphins in the waves.
It was a lovely late afternoon, dolphin photos or no.
Test… Test… Test….

I would like to propose a novel idea: If you wash dishes by putting concentrated dish soap directly on the sponge and then wash the dish, please please please rinse the dish soap off well with clean water afterwards. Even if you are washing your dishes in very weak dish soap water, please still rinse. Please.
My fave Vietnamese restaurant did not do this today or yesterday with one of the soup bowls. And now three hours after lunch of soup that was suspiciously foamy and smelled faintly of soap even through the sambal & basil, my stomach is churning and I am continuing to spit soap foam out of my mouth every couple of minutes.
The only entertaining part is if I try to drink a sip of diet coke all the liquid in my mouth rapidly foams the point where there is no liquid to swallow. Just foam to spit out.
Rinse, folks, rinse.
To admit that yes, I can write it, yes, I can tweak a framework, yes, I can… but no I am not using it in any advanced capacity because the truth is I would rather not, is quite a bit more risky right now.
How about you? Do you have a technology that is a common or currently trendy part of your design or development workflow that you cringe or have a big sign over every time you use it?
