In most of my life, I am quite content and happy, but in one area, I’m a bit conflicted. My conflict is how much I should divulge about my life to the people in my life, both my analog friends and my digital friends (that’s you, those who are reading this).

Everyone needs a multipurpose tool, right? Something that can do more than one thing, something that is worth its weight in gold? Something that gives as much as it takes? How about something that is an alarm/intruder alert system, something that will also wake you up in the morning? Something that will get you to exercise, walk… but wait, there’s more!
