One of my favorite things to do when I visit Palm Springs is to go to Lappertโ€™s, get a Dole Whip Float, then mix in some dark rum when I get back home. Lazy tiki cocktail ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด๐Ÿน

 

For those that are curious, I wrote up a summary of how I integrated my personal health data from Apple HealthKit into my website. - https://cleverdevil.io/2021/taking-control-of-my-personal-health-data

 

Today, I finished up the first phase on my personal health tracking system. I have all of my HealthKit data since roughly 2015 in my personal data lake. You can see visualizations here: https://cleverdevil.io/health and I also have integrated health data into my monthly summaries, such as https://cleverdevil.io/summary/2020/01

 

Drinking a whiskey sour ๐Ÿฅƒ, eating home made pan pizza ๐Ÿ•, and watching an outdoor movie ๐ŸŽฅ with all the kids in the neighborhood ๐Ÿ‘ง by the fire pit ๐Ÿ”ฅ. Canโ€™t beat it!

 

I finally figured out how to automatically sync my Apple HealthKit metrics to a data lake in S3. Iโ€™ve been wanting to do this for a very long time. Next step will be integrating the data with my website for in-context health metrics.

 

So, the bad news is that I had to cancel my order for a Power Mac G4 Cube enclosure because it was pretty low quality. The good news is that I lucked out and found a G4 Cube on eBay that actually boots! It arrives next week and Iโ€™m thrilled ๐Ÿ˜

 

I just achieved Inbox Zero for the first time in about 18 months. Wowza, does it feel good!

 

Iโ€™ve been having audio issues on my computer for some time, and I finally decided to replace my trusty Tascam US-2x2 XLR interface as I suspected it may be the issue. Sure enough, the Audient EVO 4 that I purchased seems to be working great. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

 

Tonightโ€™s season finale of The Expanse was not only the best episode of the series, it was one of the finest hours of television Iโ€™ve ever seen. My goodness. Just incredible.

 

Made some poached eggs on buttered toast with fried chicken for brunch today. I think I have earned my โ€œgood husbandโ€ badge for Sunday. ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ—

 

Had a daddy-daughter date today with Colette. We went down to Long Beach to drop a present off for her teacher, and then had a picnic lunch in Bixby Park. Now Iโ€™m watching Clone Wars with William. โค๏ธ

 

A new french bakery opened up in the neighborhood, right by the beach. Enjoying an incredibly tasty smoked salmon sandwich on a fresh baguette. Love my little slice of SoCal ๐Ÿ˜

 

Finally getting around to watching the Clone Wars animated series with my son. This is my first watch, and itโ€™s pretty great, though I admit that Jar-Jar Binks sucks just as hard you would expect.

 

Impeachment 2: Electric Boogaloo

 

Welp, I now have an M1 MacBook Pro on the way. Wasn't planning on upgrading, but my current laptop continues to give me issues. Pretty sure its the logic board.

Apple Silicon, here I come.

 

Pleased to report that the problems on my computer with external USB devices has been resolved. My LG UltraFine displays were acting as my "hub," but were super unreliable. Got an OWC Thunderbolt Dock, and all is now well!

 

My favorite holiday discovery is The Repair Shop, which you can find one season of on Netflix. There is just something special about skilled specialists, deep in their craft, bringing memories back to life that I find utterly delightful. Highly recommended.

 

In the pantheon of delicious liquids, where bourbon holds the throne, a very strong second place is held by pot likker. Sop it up with cornbread, and thank me later.

 

My house is full of wonderful aromas right now. Black eyed peas with salt pork, collard greens, and fresh baked cornbread. Cheers to good luck and blessings in 2021! ๐Ÿฅ‚

 

Just invented a tasty New Years cocktail. Bulleit bourbon on a large ice ball with a float of Martinelliโ€™s Sparkling Apple Cider. I call it a Kidโ€™s Table.
