TrelloI’ve been using Trello for half a dozen years now. It’s a simple tool that allows you to create boards for projects and cards with checklist and due dates.  Trello is owned by Atlasssian software, who makes Jira, a more robust agile project management tool. . Trello is a free cloud based solution perfect for small teams and small projects.  My wife actually uses a Trello board to manage our “things to do” list for household projects and tasks.  We have another family board for gifts too.

I have a Peloton Tread that my wife and I both use. We love the classes and they are very good at keeping us motivated.  I’ve been a runner (although a slow one) for a long time.  I’ve even written a couple of books on running.  I used to hate the idea of a treadmill.  When you have kids, sometimes you just can’t get outside and run.  The Peloton is so much different than any other treadmill I’ve ever used.  The huge screen is amazing and the classes keep you coming back. The tread is also a slat tread which is completely different than the rubber band treads that I was used to.  It makes running feel more like being outside. Use my referral code for $100 off of accessories when you buy either a bike or tread.

So my wife bought a Model X. It makes all other cars feel stupid.  I love my F150 truck, but driving  her car is a totally different thing. The acceleration is ridiculous. The car is so smart, it even opens the door when  you approach the car, and shuts and locks the doors as  you leave.   You can adjust the suspension along with every other feature of the car from the huge 17″ screen.  It’s the fastest, quietest and most amazing car I’ve ever driven.  Plus it looks beautiful.

A2 Hosting

I’ve been using A2 Hosting for several years.  They offer state of the art SSD hosting for all of their plans.  Their sites are super fast and easy to setup.  I rarely need support, but when I was migrating my sites to a larger plan I used their support services and they were phenominal.  I highly reccomend A2 hosting for all of your hosting needs.  And I also recommend everyone to have a personal website. If you’re in technology and looking for a job and don’t have your own website, I probably wouldn’t hire you.  Just sayin’
