WordPress Android App

I wrote yesterday about my new Motorola Milestone smartphone. I have been exploring the Android app market and was happy to discover that Automattic has an official WordPress app. While I don’t plan on blotting regularly with the phone it does offer the ability to do the essentials with your blog. For example you can edit and add new posts and pages. Managing comments is probably the most handy feature.

Writing long posts could be tiring and time consuming using the app on your smartphone, but it is excellent to use to jot down post ideas and some basic notes.

It is also possible to upload photos from the phone and embed them in the post. For example here is a photo I took of my kids playing in the snow.

This is one of the reasons why I wanted a smartphone. It offers me the ability to do more in places where I am normally just waiting. For example the majority of this post was written while I was waiting for my kids at one of their afterschool activities. If you have a WordPress blog and want to do more with it on your Android smartphone check out the WordPress app in the Android market. I am hoping it will allow me to blog more than I have been. 🙂

Walking with Dinosaurs

Walking with Dinosaurs was here in Regina in April and my son and I went to the first show on April 16th. My son’s kindergarten class took a lesson on dinosaurs and had a trip to the museum here in Regina to learn more about them. When I heard that Walking with Dinosaurs was coming to town I wanted to take him. I remember watching the show on TV a couple of times and I heard it was really impressive. Tickets were pretty expensive, but I have to say they were worth it. I don’t know who was more excited about going my son or me. If you get a chance to go see the show I would highly recommend it. I thought it was great! Kind of like watching Jurassic Park live.

Here are some photos I took with my cell phone camera.

Here are some videos from Kyle Smyth who also went to the show here in Regina.

The Geese are Back

Geese are Back
I have been going for walks around the local slough man made lake, and noticed today that the geese are back. I took a quick shot with my cell phone camera. I counted four geese, two malard ducks and two seagulls all sitting on the ice. They all looked a little lost not knowing what to do. The ice should melt pretty quick in the next few days so hopefully they will have some water soon
