For the past few days, I have been working on cleaning up my custom post type for the beers section. I was using Custom Meta Data in WordPress to get it all working before, but it was not quite how I wanted it. I needed something that was better. I have that now.
I have converted all of the Custom Meta Data into taxonomies for my Custom Post Type. I used a plugin from Scribu called Custom Field Taxonomies. It allowed me to convert all of the data that I currently had stored into taxonomies that I could use. It worked great! Now, I can link things better, and it will allow for easier navigation of that part of the site.
If you want to see all of the beers that I have had from Germany, you can do that! If you want to see all of the beers I have had from the Spoetzl Brewery, you can do that. It is a pretty cool addition in my mind. I know not many people visit this site, but the ones that do will be able to do it better. I think that is what it is really all about!
If you have any questions or concerns, let me know.
I have been running this entire year, and I decided to push it a little further last night. This is the longest distance that I have ever run.
This is an awesome commercial. Old Spice is unbelievably creative.

As of today, my wife and I will have been officially married for 5 years. I know that some people don’t think that is a long time, but it is a pretty big deal for us. We have been together for 7 1/2 years, and I think that our marriage is better than it ever has been. I will not say that we have always gotten along over those 5 years, but she has always remained my best friend.
When I look back on the 5 years, the main thing that I remember is our talks. It is the reason that I feel in love with my wife, and I am so happy that we can still talk to each other all night. Our long car trips turn into us talking the whole time about the most random things, but we never stop talking. I know that is why we are so good together. We never stop talking, and I am looking forward to doing that the rest of my life.
My wife is the best thing that has ever happened to me. She understands me, and I am so lucky to have found her. It is odd to think about how things work out, but I know that she is the person that I am supposed to be with forever. We have grown together over the past 5 years, and I am excited to see how much better things can get for over the next 5 years.
I love you, Delissa!
For awhile, I have wanted to run my own URL shortener, and I made that desire a reality a long time ago. I just never posted about it. I am not really sure why. I was pretty excited about it, but I never told anyone. There are still some people that have found it, but I was hoping that I could open it up to people who happen to read this blog.
The hardest part about the whole thing was finding the correct name. I wanted something that was short and easy to understand. This is where dcrs.me comes in. It is the word decrease without the vowels. I thought that it was pretty clever. If you want to use it, go ahead. It has a public interface for it, and I can set you up a secret key so that you can automatically post to it. It is what I use for this site.
So check it out at http://dcrs.me!
