Loosely Joined

I had to chuckle recently when I realized just how complex some of the systems in my life are, even if I rarely think about the details. Most nights, I weigh myself on a Withings wifi scale (an older version). That data syncs over Google Wifi, via a Comcast Xfinity connection, to the Nokia/Withings Health […]

Fjällräven Classic USA, 2018
