Chrome has become my default choice for a browser in the past 6 months. I use iGoogle as my home page and GMail for my personal email. In the past, it was a bit of hacker’s fest to get GMail to be your default email provider in Chrome. Now it is simple as going to chrome://settings/handlers and making GMail the default for all your mailto links. Make sure you have the latest version of Chrome. You can check for the latest by going to the about box in Chrome where it will check for the latest updates if they are available. Btw, checking for updates in the about box is a brilliant idea.
To celebrate “Change Your Password” Day, here is a great post by Scott Hanselman on securing your computer. In particular, make sure you have 2-factor auth in your Gmail account and turn on SSL/HTTPS on your social media accounts (Twitter, Gmail and Facebook).
Here are my top 3 Canucks hits on YouTube:
1. Kyprios – How the West Was One
2. Terell Safadi – Black Red Yellow
3. Grand Daddy P feat The Green Men – Towel Power (2011 Canucks Playoff Song)
One of the great goals in Canucks history
Nazara’s first field trip was to The Apple Barn in Abbotsford where we took a hay ride tour to see the pumpkin patch and apple trees as well as check out the petting barn. Weather did not cooperate but this is an excellent trip to take your kids on. Highly recommend it (without the rain).
Here are some pictures of the kids taken by my good friend Phil using his Panasonic Lumix. The cloudy weather we’ve been having in the month of June served as the backdrop to these outdoor pictures. Phil did some photo editing using Lightroom on his Mac. He uploaded the pics onto the SmugMug website which has a real nice interface for photo sharing.

A special thanks to all our family and friends who were able to attend Nishaan’s first birthday party at Khaana Peena Restaurant. With all the Olympic festivities going on in the city, it was good to see everyone make it out to this special event.
