Things are going well on the iOS contracting front. Have a new contract at $UKIanNationalFlagCarrier airline, to work on their main app. Still have to have that conversation about the dreaded IR35 situation. It's nice number, not too stresful but the only bummer being having to drive down to client site near Heathrow airport via the world's largest car park, the dreaded M25.

Poll: who to vote for in the UK General Election?

It's been rough.

Plus, a new kitten, turning 50 in New Orleans and less.

One of my high school friends has a sign hanging in his shop that reads: “Take It Easy, It’s Later Than You Think”

Sound advice.

My mother is getting old, I take care of her at my house with my wife and son taking care of her as well. My two brothers live far enough away they cannot visit every day. Can't get a phone call most of the time from them. My only contact is Facebook and my mother does not use Facebook.

My youngest brother told me he would not be at mom's funeral when she finally dies. Said she never called him when he had sore ribs and etc.

it's really real. Really.

I now have a favorite bar in Mountain View. I took nearly $800 in rideshare rides in almost 6 weeks. I visited SF on a Sunday afternoon and got food poisoning. I had a date.
