By default, my latest blog posting will show below. A list of links to more of my blog postings follows just below the full-text blog article.

We are staying with Chase and Jill Kerlin again this weekend in Austin. They live in Round Rock and always leave a room available for us - even last minute. We were down here just the other weekend to come to a wedding and my friend from Panama (the country) is here this weekend, so we are going to hang out with him.

Thanks Chase and Jill!

I've started rollerblading with Shiner (our dog). Since we got Dish Network, we've been watching a lot of Dog Whisperer - the show with Cesar Millan.  He is always talking about releasing the dogs energy and one of the examples we have seen him do to release dog's energy is to go rollerblading with the dog and the owners. 

When it starts getting closer to bedtime, Shiner starts running around the apartment with a squeaky toy and we figure it has to drive the downstairs neighbor mad.  I usually try to stop her when she starts running around, but that probably keeps all her energy pent up in her.  Instead of just stopping her from running around, we decided to start helping her release some of that energy by taking her out rollerblading.

I've decided to quit posting technical posts to my frontpage. I figure that most people who land on my blog for a tech post are probably getting here from google or another search engine and will land directly on the article they are interested in. People who are more likely to visit my site on a consistent basis are friends and family. As such, I am trying to make it easier for them to enjoy the site (by simply coming to the frontpage) without having to navigate through all the techy madness that I am always posting about.

If you do read my blog for the techy posts, they will all still be here. They won't show up on the site's main front-page, but they'll still get filed to the tech category of my blog. What do you think about this change? Leave a comment and let me know!

It's been a while since I've written a blog post to my website, but I guess I've just been busy with a lot of things going on in my life. I've been travelling a ton for work - which has been really cool, but has kept me ultra busy. Since the beginning of the year, I've been on business trips to:

Austin, Texas
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Malta, Malta (South of Italy) - Stayed in London, England for a 2 nights
San Francisco, California
Shenzhen, China

My last goal was to make my website the top search result when you searched for 'Shiner Lyon' (at least on Google - that's all that counts right?). I have successfully overtaken the Kansas and Kentucky Wildlife Commissions and a discussion forum about fishing bait to achieve the top position. At least for now.

My new goal is to make my website the top search result when you search for 'Josh Lyon' - afterall, this website is pretty much dedicated to my thoughts, my photos, my technical discoveries, etc. Hopefully google will re-index my site and will pickup on the new changes I'll be making over the coming days.

I would mention the names of the websites I'm below, but for now I don't want to give them any type of advantage. I'm talking to you Mr. Leet Speak and Mr. Horserider.

Maybe I could put some more pictures of myself up and appropriately label them. If you have any ideas how to make my site more oriented towards me in content (like the use of my name in text, descriptors, etc.) please leave a comment.
