Back when laptops were 6-7 pounds, bringing around a 2-3 pound Newton, external keyboard, and Ricochet wireless modem was perfect for checking … Continue reading iPad Case and Newton MessagePad Keyboard Case
Wilson and Cristina hosted a wine soirée in San Francisco this evening. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen them and their friends. Scott and Herna showed off their new daughter, Somerah. So cute! The wine, cheese, and other snacks were quite delectable, and the conversation with everyone was equally good. Rae and I talked quite … Continue reading Wine Soirée in San Francisco

Today we had a friend come in to try out some costumes that we brought back from China. Edric is modeling two outfits, a Qing Dynasty Soldier uniform and a gentry class scholar outfit. Let us know what you think!
The past few days, we’ve had some difficulties getting access to the Internet from the hotel. Here’s a photo of Rae, JP and me at the Simatai Great Wall in China.
