A Visit From Vermont – Dad, Susan and Skyler

The Rest clan finally made it down to Puerto Rico. We have been down here close to two years and no one has been able to make the visit. My dad, Susan and Skyler finally made it down last week and spent a couple of days with us. It was a lot of fun. Summer and I were both really busy with work but we passed time with them on the front porch over coffee, went snorkeling, drank Ron Cana (Puerto Rican moonshine) and went down to Villa Cofresi for a few of their famous Piratas. A Pirata is a rum cocktail served in a coconut…it’s a must have for every tourist here in Rincon Puerto Rico.

Gmail, iWork, Pages and IT DOESN’t Work!

I was using Apple’s iWork program (as I always to) to edit a few lines in a .doc file that was sent to me. I guess I just figured that I could save my revisions, re-attach it to an email (web based gmail) and then ship it back off to the recipient. I guess I wasn’t really thinking straight because the guy that was supposed to receive the attachment has a PC and wouldn’t have been able to open a Pages file anyway…but I was very surprised when Google wouldn’t even send the pages file as an attachment!

I guess Google saved me the trouble of apologizing for sending a file that they couldn’t open..but if the recipient also had a Mac, I probably would have been really annoyed. Regardless, I still think it’s strange that Gmail won’t send Pages files as attachments. No warning, it just kept saying “still working”.

Coffee House Rules – Don’t Mess with your Barrista

I am on my cell phone a lot for work, and I am on my cell phone a lot because I am addicted to it. The technology aspect of cell phones these days has me checking my iPhone for emails, FaceBook and Twitter updates constantly. If I am bored, I will be playing Texas Hold ‘Em Poker or shuffling through pictures that I most recently taken. Hmmm…maybe there is something wrong with me. Why can’t I just sit in the hammock and chill out! :-)

The last time I went to San Diego with Summer, I spent a lot of time at Cafe 976 in Pacific Beach. I like their coffee, their food is healthy and very fresh and their Wi-Fi is fast. It’s a great place to people watch and get some work done. I loved this sign they had at the register so much, I took a picture of it with my iPhone so I could preserve it forever. Check it out. Classic.

Four Months after Conception

Summer and I are 16 weeks into becoming a family of three. We had our ultrasound two weeks ago and could make out the babies head and body clearly, but hearing the heartbeat made it all very real. There is something growing inside of Summers stomach!

We are 95% done with the construction of the main level of our Rincon Puerto Rico Home which consists of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a great room and the kitchen. The guest bedroom upstairs is going to become the nursery but we have sworn not to paint it pink or blue depending on the gender of the baby.
