Memorial Day in Canton, Georgia
About a year and a half ago, I rode through Canton, Georgia with a friend and neighbor on our way to Old Car City. As we were about to pass the Georgia National Cemetery on Hwy 20, he asked if I minded taking a brief detour.

I read about it in some article on how to prepare for an interview. And I thought about it. But I couldn’t come up with an answer that didn’t sound like complete bullshit. Maybe that’s what they want to hear; I don’t know. Fortunately, I never had to find out.
Thoughts and Use Cases for Three Productivity Apps
Over the years, the tool(s) I use for productivity have changed with the seasons. Changing productivity apps every time a new one hits your radar is not very, well, productive.
