Episode 1 Season 2: Alexa, can you hear me?

Alexa Voice Commands

In this Episode:

Alexa lands at Roy’s house and they mostly get along. Adventures in Voice Assistants (Siri, Alexa, Google Now, Google Home), Virtual Assistants, and trying to get them to tell you what you really want to hear or know. Plus we learn Amazon’s Alexa makes a great DJ if you are in the mood for Heavy Metal Christmas, Heavy Metal Classical Music, or the Chris Tomlin station. Actually you find she is really good at all things music. Quite fun there. Be sure to listen to the end for the “Moment of Zen”.


Alexa is taking part in a murder investigation

The First Day of 2017

Happy New Year

I have heard it said whatever you do on January 1st is what you do the rest of the year. If that is true, it is a blessing that January 1st falls on Sunday. We have an opportunity to visit the church of our choice (if you live in a place that allows such freedoms). My goal for this year is to be much closer to God: to try my best to not get in his way and to seek his direction before I go on my own. We often pick a direction and then ask the Lord to bless our decision but what if we asked him first about what direction to go?

Here is my list of the things I want to do today:

  1. Pray
  2. Go to Church with my family
  3. Pray more
  4. Sit and enjoy a meal with my family
  5. Tell those around me that I love them
  6. Play games with my kids
  7. Read
  8. Write
  9. Exercise
  10. Pray some more

What’s on your list of things to do today?
