Apple - Love to Hate or Hate to Love?

Apple - My Love Hate relationship with it I have been an apple fan ever since a friend of mine introduced me to the platform in high school. I have always liked their design concepts and the feel of their OS. As soon as I could afford it I went out and bought an iMac, then an iBook, then a MacBook Pro. The reliability of their OS and the high quality of their hardware has always been a key selling point - along with the uniformity of their platform. That being said there have been several times that I have been frustrated with the design choices that Apple has made.

Love!?!

What is Love? So I was reading 1 Cor. 13 this morning and it got me thinking about our understanding of love. As a Christian I know that love is an action and that it is a choice that we make. The feeling that is associated with love is not love but a natural reaction to being loved. But do I live like that is what I believe? I remember when my wife and I were dating and she wanted us to write down 100 reasons that we loved each other. I remember at the time I hated it but I couldn’t put in to words why.

Why Grillbrick Studios?

Why Grillbrick Studios? I’m sure there are a lot of people out there who wonder about the name of the website. Well that is a multi-faceted question with an answer that spans a large time period. Grillbrick? First the name Grillbrick. I was working as a cook at a restaurant in Thedford, NE that now no longer exists. Well - it’s still there but under a different name and new manager etc. The main part of the story is that I was listening to an audiobook. Well - it was technically an e-book that I had run through a text-to-speech program so I could listen to it while cleaning up.

Blogging

What is the point of a blog? So I’m going to start blogging now. I think the main focus of this blog is going to be me rambling about my life. Where I come from, the things that are important to me. I’m going to try and be as non-confrontational as I can, but if you get offended you can always go somewhere else. I mean this is the internet…
