Macon Beer Fest sets 2014 date

The Macon Beer Fest returns to downtown Macon on August 23, 2014. This will be the event's fourth year.

Last year, 1,000 people sampled 30 varieties of beer downtown.

Main Street Macon and the Downtown Macon Rotary are partnering to raise money for Pints for Prostates.

That's an organization educating families about prostate cancer.

There's An App For That: Dropbox

There's An App For That: Dropbox

Dropbox is another app that I love. This is a cloud document storage system as well as a file sharing system. I use Dropbox almost every day for many, many things.  I have used it to share files with my fellow co-chair of a school fundraiser.  Currently I am sharing files with my web designer.  I also use it to the back create a backup of my digital photographs from my phone (one of my favorite features BTW).

 

Country star shows support of "Hamburgers for Hunter"

Country star shows support of "Hamburgers for Hunter"

Last week, you read the story of "Hamburgers for Hunter," the story of Hunter Heath who holds up two fingers when taking a picture because when he thinks "cheese" (often said when taking a picture) he associates it with hamburgers.  His mother, Margaret Spielman, created a page on Facebook asking people to post photos of themselves giving the same symbol for his birthday.

The page has 676 likes and lots of pictures.  Thursday, Spielman submitted a photo of country star and Macon native Jason Aldean giving the "hamburger" sign.  Hunter's birthday is this Saturday.

There's An App for That: Evernote

There's An App for That: Evernote

Evernote has become one of my favorite apps. I use it to store all kinds of information that I will want to retrieve later, things such as a great recipe from a friend, screenshots of other websites I am inspired by as I revamp my own website, and quotes that I want to remember. Basically Evernote is now my go-to spot to save anything I am going to need later.
