In Spanish, piedra means rock, or stone. When I was in Ohio, back in March, I was walking along The Tow Path and happened to notice this rock. Certainly, not a natural occurrence. It’s shaped like the state of Ohio and is painted and glazed. I turned it over and it had instructions to “re-hide me” Well, taking a page of the Tony Lester playbook … it didn’t say exactly “where” to re-hide it, so it is safely hidden here…

iOS 11 has a new feature, well, new to us iPhone users. You can set the phone up to sense when you are moving above a certain speed. If it detects this, it will place your phone in Do Not Disturb mode and will, if enabled, send a text message to anyone who texts you to indicate that you are driving and you’ll respond to them when it’s safe to do so.

I thought that we had embarked on autumn, but, this week has returned to the hot mugginess of summer with humidity levels at 100% in the morning and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Sweat! Oh well! It’s all good!

Wow! I’ve not been here in a while. I’m still doing my daily walks and there are lots of things running around in my head, but work has been interesting. Lots of things have changed. The first major thing was that MLBAM (Major League Baseball Advanced Media) split into two companies, MLBAM and BAMTech.
