It’s the weekend and that means hockey for our little family. So for this picture of the day we have Jacob kneeling on the ice listening to his coach before
Sunday is Violet’s hockey day, so I chose this picture of her celebrating her Game Winning goal from the bench during her game. I love watching her play, she gives

For over 5 years I took the time every day to share something on my blog. For most of that time it was my picture of the day, but sadly back in November that streak came to an end. I wish I could say what happened, why a month that I was hoping to inspire me to get back to writing regularly on my blog could be when I stopped posting at all. I can’t, it started with me taking longer and longer to post my picture of the day, till one day I didn’t then another and another. Next thing I knew it was December and I hadn’t shared a picture of the day since November 6th. I took them, but they are just sitting in my photo library waiting to be shared.
I tried to jumpstart my blogging in December, but it failed.
So I set my sights on the new year. I hopped that I could start 2016 with a renewed commitment to the blog. The first came and went with no new posts.
For months I’ve tried to write-up my experience trying to turn my Note 10.1 tablet into a coding machine. I’ve had this post sitting in my draft folder since February every so often I pull it out and try to finish writing it. every time so far I have saved incomplete. Of course my circumstances have changed a bit since I started writing this, but I still think there is useful information for others in this post. So this last weekend I finally sat down and finished it. So I’ll be writing up a post to discuss what’s changed and why I’m less interested in finding development solutions for Android.
One of the reasons for replacing my Nexus 7 with the larger Note 10.1 was that I wanted to use my tablet for more than entertainment. From blogging to note tacking it has severed me well over the last 6 months, What I have yet to find a way to do productively and consistently is write code. To be fair up until the beginning of the year I haven’t made that a priority, I was content with using CodeAnywhere to make minor tweaks to projects, that was until it failed me completely when I was trying to write a procedure to review my picture of the day posts from 2014, ever since then I’ve tried to find alternatives. I’ve even been in contact with CodeAnywhere support, who’ve been reasonably responsive when dealing with a non paying customer, but ultimately it’s not reliable enough to be my primary mobile solution or even move up from the free service. So where does that leave me?
Today we headed to dinner with Nana and Papa, while there I captured this this picture of Violet as she watched the leafs game. It was great to see her interest, though at home she never wants to sit and watch with me. Of course as a father I question if raising her a leaf fan is really the best thing for her. Can I really set her up for a life filled with that kind of disappointment.
Today I captured this picture of Ruby, when I showed it to Melissa she said it looked like profile picture. So I set one up for her, @thedogRuby. I’m not sure if I’ll post anything on it, but it’s there if I want.
