Garmin's New Tri Watch

Even with Garmin's latest iteration in their running / triathlon sports watches 935, Apple's Watch keeps on drawing me back in.

Check out Ray Maker's "In-Depth Review". If you ask me, $499 is a little steep. For now, I'll wait for the Apple Watch 3.

Airplanes, Cars and Jumpys

Getting called out on a redeye to JFK on a short call moment, I flew LGB-JFK then get a deadhead back to LGB about one and half hours after landing at 4:35am then jumped back to LGB at 7:00am. Drove home, cooked a meal for the family then right to a birthday party for one of Norah's old classmates. Good times!

Razer's Blade Is Tempting

In a lot of ways, the Razer Blade is almost like the MacBook Pro that Apple should have made: the latest powerful hardware, both USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C jack, an HDMI port, and a proper black color, rather than the slate gray Touch Bar models. And it supports VR, which no Apple machine, laptop or desktop, is certified for (although the Blade still can’t charge over USB-C, using a legacy barrel port to actually charge the battery).

If it wasn't for Windows, I would have happily bought a Razer Blade already. The specs obliterate Apple's latest and newest MacBook Pro w/ TouchBar. Granted the mess of ports and not being able to charge via USB-C on the Blade is silly and a disappointment but it's still an awesome machine.

Bottom line: I've been contemplating making the switch back, but I'd miss too much of the daily apps I use on my MacBook Air. #ecosystem

Thursday Back At It!

So no breakfast or coffee to start off, but after a little hiccup in the morning start, i'm off to school, Choice Juicery then over to the Genie Car Wash. After school pickup, Ben falls asleep in the car on the way to a lunch playdate so we head home and I cook meal #2 from The Green Chef. We also received two more boxes of meals (another from Green Chef and one from Hello Fresh) so no grocery shopping for a few days. Also, Norah makes her own decision given the three choices. #dadcantdecide

JFK to LGB

After a delayed departure out of Albuquerque followed by an even later hotel arrival, my schedule gets modified and I become illegal per FAR 117 rest requirements. We are at the airport hotels which are still, once again, too far from NYC so I find myself just heading back to the airport for the ride back home.

[117.25.(e)] No certificate holder may schedule and no flightcrew member may accept an assignment for any reserve or flight duty period unless the flightcrew member is given a rest period of at least 10 consecutive hours immediately before beginning the reserve or flight duty period measured from the time the flightcrew member is released from duty. The 10 hour rest period must provide the flightcrew member with a minimum of 8 uninterrupted hours of sleep opportunity.

Albuquerque New Mexico

We landed late last night. I chose to sleep in and catch up on sleep. I changed my mind about going to the Petroglyph National Park and headed instead to the Standard Diner followed by a movie for ONLY $5.15!!! Logan was pretty good but maybe a little underwhelming.

Coffee afterwards to wait out the rain and found an awesome shop called Espresso Fino!

Scandinavian Airlines Sells 2 Highly Coveted London Heathrow Slots to Unnamed Carrier

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has sold two pairs of London Heathrow slots to an undisclosed buyer, raising $75 million from the transaction.

Before the sale, SAS had the sixth largest Heathrow slot portfolio with 19 daily slot pairs. This has now been narrowed to 17 pairs, although under the deal SAS can continue to use the two pairs for up to three years.

Let's the rumors swirl. I'm crossing my fingers for this one. Emphasis are my own.

Day Sleep and Lunch with Matt

Arriving early AM, I uploaded the last two videos from the weekend then slept hard. Matty P came over and picked me up and we headed out to Tum Thai in Rockville Center ~ 15 minutes away. Since the city is just too difficult and time consuming to get to, this was a great find. Flew to Albuquerque and back in the hotel. Short day with a full day of rest tomorrow.
