ComeInHere4 app for smartwatch

Before you go into the kitchen [upstairs/the basement/wherever] etc, you announce:
"I'm going into the kitchen [wherever] to get salt [whatever]."
Then, once you are in the kitchen [upstairs/basement/wherever], you can say:
"What did I come in here for?"
And your smartwatch will reply:
You went into the kitchen[wherever] for salt[whatever].
This will save us all many steps. Its particular target market will, of course, be us aging Baby Boomers.

Parental egoboo

One of the fun things about being a parent is it enables you to make a mildly funny remark and watch your child respond with peals of laughter.
As a parent, you're already hardwired to think your child's laugh one of the most pleasant sounds in the universe, so it's quite gratifying.

New Year's Diet Resolution (Limited)

OK, as of 1/1/2015 no hard* cheese until Passover, except for free meals & when there's nothing to eat other than pizza.

*hard, as in not: ricotta, cottage cheese, neufchatel or cream cheese. Those I'll still eat.

I'm not sure about feta.  What do you think? (Does anyone read my blog?)
The good thing about feta is that it's usually in salads.

Of course, it's also in those lovely greek butter-filled pastries.

Feta only in salad?

Greek butter-filled pastries with feta and spinach. Spinach is healthy..
