We’re well into summer here in Texas, and things are heating up quickly and quite early.

I don’t know if we’ll set record-breaking numbers for triple-digit weather, but things appears to be on track for such a possibility.

Most recently I dedicated a weekend to cleaning our 11-year old air conditioning units in hopes of each lasting one or two more summers before needing to be replaced.

I was fortunate to have cool, overcast weather that weekend to have been able to power off sections at a time of our house.  All in all, it took about 1.5 hours for each system, including disassembly, cleaning, and re-assembly.

Afterwards, both units operated as efficient as they could to be for 11 years old, blowing cool air inside while the temperature inched a few degrees away from triple-digit weather.

This was all good until about a week or so ago when I received the dreaded call from my wife about the upstairs AC unit NO LONGER blowing cold air. ?

The Austin Heat, Domains, and Annual Memorial Day CapTexTri

Can’t believe it’s been one year since last Memorial Day and giving for the honorable men and women graciously deciding to serve and protect the United States of America, many having lost their lives. ??

My family and I kicked off Memorial Day quite early than many folks — literally our day started just before 6 am CST.

As we did last year, we made our way down to Auditorium Shores to support our friend and spiritual daughter as she participated, competed, and placed 3rd in the Sprint Course for her age group at the Annual Memorial Day CapTexTri. 

Out with .com and in with .pizza ?

Out of all places on earth to have found a company using a .pizza domain name as a primary digital presence, imagine how surprised I was to have had this encounter happen in my hometown.

In the mid to late 90’s as the world was coming online, Sherman, Texas had just crossed over 30,000 population mark.

Back then, the Chamber of Commerce, Yellow Pages and Sherman Democrat, now the Herald Democrat, were a business’ advertising staple to reach more customers and generate greater revenue.

There were not many businesses, if any back then, touting a web address of any sort.

I’m certain most businesses owners had no clue of what a web address was nor did they ever imagine the Internet would be what it it today, some 20 years later.

20 years later and having adding another 10,000 folks in population, I often don’t think of Sherman as a city of progressive technological advancement, especially for businesses using new top-level domains.

When you’re into domains as much as I am, then you tend to value and study the use of all sorts of domains — no matter your preference.

As most know, I started this blog primarily because I often filter the world through my daily interactions and discovery of domain names used by all walks of life.

One of the things I cherish most about the domain industry is the various, diverse relationships that make up the industry. Talk about all walks of life. We, the domain industry, are that and more.

Today’s story is no different other than the fact that the domains I’ll share with you today come from the great down under.

Curing Austin’s Cedar Fever with Teatime Domains

Reading Time | 3 Minutes

If you’re fortunate enough to move or live in Central Texas for an extended period of time, then you’ll become quite familiar with a term not as common to the rest of the US: Cedar Fever. ?

What’s interesting is that I didn’t suffer with Cedar Fever or any sort of allergies until being here in Austin for nearly seven (7) years.

It was as if someone flipped a switch, then I became allergic to everything under the sun, specifically Cedar. ?

From November to March of each year, “The Austin Plague” sideline a number of new and longtime Austinites.

In fact, Cedar Fever is so bad here in Austin that there are days that the trees appear to be on fire because of how thick their pollen is when bursting into the air. ?

Plume after plume of cedar fill the air like a wildfire’s smoke plumes. Some days it limits line of sight for flying and driving occasionally.

Personally, I’ve become addicted to curing and staying ahead of Cedar Fever using the Neti Pot or Rinse Starter, and religiously having daily teatimes of tea and warm lemon water.

I drink all sorts of tea, but mostly English Breakfast is my go-to tea, also known as premium black tea.

However, the other day I was rummaging through my assorted jars of tea and came across two different teas: Blackberry, and Organic Chamomile with Lavender.

A Christmas Pie Worth Talking About

Well, Christmas has come and gone just like that, in a twinkle of an eye.

The Christmas tree sits bare with gifts no longer underneath it, and discarded boxes and wrapping paper are not far behind.

Toys have been played with and meals have been had or soon to be. And oh what meals we’ve had with dinner soon on the way.

What a joy it’s been to celebrate the birth of Christ with family, friends, and neighbors this season.

Speaking of neighbors, one of my neighbors so graciously shared a gift that has me writing at this at this very moment.

Domains Bringing Summer Fun in the Sun on Lake Travis

It’s heating up in Texas, and things are getting quite active around Volente Beach.

As I work the days away, I often see party buses to and fro with intense beach laughter and frolicking.

There’s a bit more loud music playing throughout the day than the norm, and the marina island is always packed with a party barge or two in full effect.

Truth be told, it’s quite a refreshing view to experience new ownership spicing things up around the sleepy village of Volente.
