  • Top 5 iPhone Apps I Use

    As they say, my dock is full. Kristen and I have been iPhone users for a couple of months now. So far we love it! One unintended consequence of using iPhone is that our monthly cell phone bill actually went down. Never expected that. Like most users, I actually use the phone part of the […]

    I suppose it’s no surprise to know that I like to play with things on the internet. A few months back I bought a domain on a whim, TwitFail. I am a fan of FailBlog.org and I thought it might be fun to capture some of the stupidity that people post on Twitter or it’s […]

  • What a difference a letter makes

    One of the many funny things that happened in Nashville occurred Sunday night during our general session. As our bloggers are describing what our speaker, Danielle Strickland of the Salvation Army, is talking about I took it upon myself to head over to twitter to share a quick insight into what I was thinking.
