That moment when you’re at the clinic and the radiologist tells you “It’s twins!”. I know for me, it brought a chill through my body. My initial reaction was complete joy that we are blessed with two, followed up with the realization of what kind of financial impact this will have on us.

Yesterday I had a wonderful Father’s Day. I spent the morning with my wife, two sons and Dad. He was here on business and it worked out perfectly. We all went to Mimi’s Cafe for breakfast.

Later that night we headed to a friends house for some poolside fun.

I’ve run into a situation where I needed to detect if the user swiped on the page and I didn’t want to include a 3rd party jQuery plug-in. By just using the jQuery library, you can detect when a user swipes the page and do whatever you need accordingly. This swipe triggers in any direction.

My personal site needed a refresh so I decided to bring it up-to-date. I added two new sections, this blog and the lifestream. The blog will serve the purpose of sharing some design and development ideas along with some personal anecdotes. (more…)
