Oh little town of Reyjavik

Old Reykjavik towards the harbor from the tower of Hallgrimskirkja church. Doing a bit of sightseeing after sleeping in until 10 am. Bobo took the flights over like a champ; for Leah, it was a bit more rough but last night was a good ketchup.

Dong, dong, dong… church bells in the tower strike one. Time to bounce Bobo back to sleep.

Off to Iceland

Leah, Ava and I are off on a grand adventure to Iceland tomorrow for 14 days. Put particular emphasis on adventure, because I’m writing this as Ava is screaming in her Ergo and won’t take a nap. We’re preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.

After we arrive Monday morning, we spend three nights in Reykjavik. Wednesday we plan to take a day trip to the Blue Lagoon. Apparently little bobos are encouraged — a water wing should fit nicely around her belly. From Reykjavik, we’ll take our rented car to Hellnar for three days of hiking. Then, to get to Ísafjörður where we’re spending the second week, we take a ferry that stops for the day on Flatey Island.

I’ll be offline the first week, and working a half week the second. Looking forward to the opportunity to relax, spend time with my family, and reflect.


Breaking my radio silence on this here blog to call out for help: if you know why my alloptions cache ends up as 0 when I restart Memcached, I’d love to hear from you.

Because when alloptions ends up as 0, wp_cache_add() never adds alloptions to the object cache, resulting in hundreds of options queries on every page load.
