We had a fantastic day today at a local farm and restaurant. Fried Chicken, Pork loin, mashed potatoes, corn, green breans, Mac and cheese, and country ham biscuits for lunch with cheesecake for dessert. After lunch was a Christmas Show, and then a hay ride light show.

My wife and I got lucky when our property came on the market a couple of years. It was in the school district we wanted and was in the country like we wanted.

I’m thankful for a family that is rich in love.

This is really accurate.

The only time I use hotel WiFi with a VPN to secure my connection is to stream video from Netflix, Prime, Hulu, and Disney+

Busy morning in San Jose, California. My company has 3 airplanes leaving with passengers right now and 3 more waiting on passengers.

Flying Over Apple Park

Currently waiting for passengers to arrive in Torrance, California. Flying them to Moffett Federal Airfield near Mountain View, California, and we should fly right over Apple Park. I will definitely try to take some pictures if we do

Santa Barbara, California

Truckee-Tahoe Airport, Truckee California

The facilities at this airport look woebegone. (I hope that’s the correct context for woebegone, since I had to look up the definition)

This will be my second airplane in as many days. Company gave our first airplane to a different crew.

Confused Thoughts about 1Password taking VC Funds

I’m torn about 1Password taking VC Funds. Part of me thinks it could be a good thing because it can ensure 1PW is around for a long time. The other part of me is very leery about it because now 1PW will focus on profit instead of service and lose their way, similar to Evernote and Dropbox.

I’ve got no desire to move away from 1Password, and don’t plan to move unless things start to change drastically in a negative way. That doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about alternatives though.

Bitwarden seems the most promising of alternative options I’ve looked at. It’s open source software, which I like, and reminds me if 1Password in the early days.

LastPass looks nice and I know people who use it, but I have always been slightly leery of using it because of their data breach a few year ago. I know they have corrected the issue and hopefully learned from it but it still concerns me.

Dashlane is pretty much a non-starter for me. All the adverts I see for it, tell me they are after pure profit more than offering a great product. They took VC funds and have turned into what I fear 1Password turning into. The fact Dashlane offers a VPN service in their premium subscription concerns me that they (like so many companies these days) are more focused on what data they can get from me instead of keeping my data secure.

The Jumbotron at the university (American) football stadium and the mist made a murky combination tonight.

I am loving the Spigen Gauntlet case for iPhone 11. I’m more excited about it than a sane person would be over a phone case.

Random fact of the day: Nearly all mammals, including the giraffe, have 7 neck vertebra.
