The (near) Future of Tynan

If you're wondering why I always put my name in the topics of these things, it's not because I have a huge ego. I do have a huge ego, but I do it so that my name gets better search rankings in google. My goal is for people to be able to search for "Tynan" and for my site to be number one. Soon. If you want to help, like the almighty Magnus, you can link to my blog and put my name in the link.

Today Doug, Steve, Steve's (ex?) girlfriend, Todd and I headed down to Canyon Lake, TX to do some tubing. You see, I bought the sweetest tube ever to bring to the lake. The thing actually flies 15 feet in the air behind the boat. I think I wrote about it before, but I'm not sure. Anyway, the first time we tried I skipped along the water, but didn't really take flight because my weak human lungs couldn't inflate the tube enough.

Today before going to the lake I bought two different pumps to ensure that the thing would actually inflate. As it turned out, the boat rental place had a sweet air compressor, negating the need for our own pumps. Oh well... you owe me one (two?), Wal Mart. Our rental boat was a shoddy looking boat most certainly manufactured before 1990 which was apparently very fast. The interior was a coccoon of brightly colored vinyl couches covered by a weathered bimini top. I climbed aboard and with the help of Todd, tied the monsterous tube to the boat.

How to use Evernote: Capturing printed recipes

On Mike Dariano

I really enjoy using Evernote as my digital cookbook. I have a cookbook, in fact I have many cookbooks and they're all collecting dust - except this and this, the only two anyone would really need - since I began clipping recipes to Evernote. I've seen a lot of people sing the praises of scanning paper but I've found it's always been easier to just snap a picture.Last week I was visiting some family and a copy of Woman's Day was on the table. I flipped through and found this Spiced Chicken and Chickpea Stew Recipe. Well, I could have torn the page out, folded it enough to fit in my pocket, brought it home, lost it will all the other things in my pocket and eventually found it. Instead, I snapped this shot and have the recipe saved. Here's a few other tips for using Evernote this way.
