    Loaded Baked Potato: My Version

    When I was younger, I enjoyed going out to dinner with my parents and siblings at Ponderosa Steakhouse for steak, baked potato, and salad. I always liked to put sour cream on my baked potato. As a working adult, I began eating a baked potato for lunch. However, I learned that using plain yogurt as a replacement for sour cream was a healthier option. I began mixing in a cup of plain yogurt with the baked potato and then commenced to eat the whole thing, skin and all. After my last employment stint, I stopped eating baked potatoes for some reason. However, with tight funds and the desire to eat…

    Moleskine PIM Hack

    In 2009 I was searching the Internet for ideas of how to make a paper PIM (personal information manager). I came across a blog post by a Japanese lady named AK, where she detailed how she used a large Moleskine squared notebook to make a personal PIM/diary. Note: The link to AK’s blog post may generate a javascript error window. If so, just click the OK button. The post is old and probably uses outdated javascript code. One thing that turned me off to using a paper PIM was the difficulty of locating specific notes. I can’t remember exactly how or why, but I came across a post by Joel…
