Journey journal tool


I kept a digital journal for more than 4 years, but sadly the company (OhLife I miss you!) closed shop. I have not been as good about keeping a journal since, but heard good things about Journey and finally started using it.

So far I dig it. You can use it on pretty much any device and the interface is simple and automates recording some aspects of the day including location and weather.


It is free and available as a Chrome app, an Android app, and via the web.

So far I’ve just been using the Chrome app, but dig it. Give it a try if you are in need a a digital journal tool!

The most ridiculous wireless phone speaker system?

Concept? Cool! Price? Stupid!


Stupid expensive boombox for your phone.

I guess 20 hours of use is cool. A diamond in the front is just dumb.

“The best critical battery warning…” is really something this guy says.


He says is it $300, but it is listed as $889 plus shipping on Amazon now.

It is obvious he is Canadian based on how be said “about”. 😉

Runkeeper in Europe


I was not familiar with Kölsch (although it mainly is just top fermented from my understanding*) before Köln, but now that I had several while in Germany I have found a few here!

Berkeley Bowl has one from Ballast Point.


Beer Advocate has a bit more

As well as one from Cali Craft , the Cali Cöast.


They tend to be less bubbly due to the way they are fermented which means you can drink them a bit more than a beer with more bubbles.

*My friend Nina added “…and fermented a little bit colder than an ale…”
