Tech Take: Tesla First Impression

As I mentioned in my post from last week, we have been living with my parents in Arizona for the past 5.5 months while searching for a home in the Atlanta area. Not the ideal situation for 30-somethings with a dog and a small child – or for 60-somethings that aren't used to simultaneously running … Continue reading Tech Take: Tesla First Impression

Buying a Home During a Pandemic

My Dad has always said that people move for only six reasons (in no particular order): (1) Family, (2) Friends/Social, (3) Jobs, (4) Geographic Points of Interest, (5) Healthcare/Medical Needs, (6) Weather. If you are part of the small circle of TIRL readers, you know that we have lived in New Orleans for close to … Continue reading Buying a Home During a Pandemic

Before the internet exploded, subscriptions seemed limited to a) magazines and newspapers, or b) total ripoff service like the Columbia Mail Order CD Club (please tell me someone else remembers this?!). Now, of course, you can literally … Continue reading Death By The $10 Monthly Subscription

2019 New Year’s Tech Housekeeping

As I've been scrolling around the web for the past couple of weeks I've seen a lot of hot takes on 2019 "New Year's Resolutions". I don't know if people are truly sick of the word (or maybe more the idea of) resolutions, or if they're just trying to think of a more clever way … Continue reading 2019 New Year’s Tech Housekeeping
