Looking for new ways to make my healthy prepared meals interesting and Pinterest worthy I decided to prep my salads in a mason jar. Not only does it keep my salad creations fresh, it looks awesome.

This Salad-In-A-Jar consists of: Edamame, Chickpeas, Carrots, Broccoli, Kale, Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes, Red Onion and Bell Pepper – Largest portion of the salad consisting of the kale and spinach mix.  All others ingredients are measured in 1/3 cup parts.

At the top of each mason jar is a paper towel to absorb any moisture keep all ingredients crisp for eating threw-out the week.

I hope you have fun with making this and enjoy

Office 365: Cutover Migration | Lost Delegation on Mailboxes

I am posting this to help any of you who are looking to be proactive in your approach to migrate into Office 365 / Exchange Online Services.

After migrating mailboxes info Office 365, you will noticed that under your recipient’s mailbox delegation all previous access levels have been removed. In fact they never came over with the migration in the first place.

But Why?

Because during the copy of the user account and mailbox data this info is not recorded as the migration tools are not designed to copy such info (at this time) “quoting Microsoft support on this one”

Right now I am in search of a method to script out my users and then import that via power-shell. I will post / share this as soon as I have a working solution.

This post is just to inform any of you searching this out that you may also face this same issue.



In my humble opinion as a professional who has been working in Office 365 / Exchange Online – You are better off configuring a Hybrid migration path over the all in one cut-over-method. While the Hybrid may take some extra learning and understanding; its the path that will ensure your data is migrated with all attributes.

Another example of things not working properly in a cut-over migration: Office 365: Convert Mailbox to Shared Mailbox after Cutover Migration


Again note: that not all permissions are preserved when mailboxes are moved to Office 365 using a cutover migration. For example Send As permissions on mailboxes will be lost and administrators will need to reconfigure this once users are moved across into the cloud.

To Our Honored Dead: Leonard Nimoy

“Do not grieve… I have been and always shall be your friend.”

Through Spock, Leonard Nimoy showed us that things like compassion, mercy, dignity, wit and friendship were actually logical.

Leonard Simon Nimoy (/ˈniːmɔɪ/; March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015) was an American actor, film director, poet, singer and photographer. His passing has hit the sci-fi community in a big way; myself included. It will be hard to imagine a world without this man in it.

Like that of his role of Spock… I see dead as the only logical conclusion to a long lived life.

Rest in peace Leonard Nimoy; you will never be forgotten and remembered for generations to come. Your memory will live long and continue to prosper.


His last social tweet: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”

Save those diapers for the house and garden plants

In this video Grant Thompson – “The King of Random” show you how to turn diapers unused and even those used ones into enhanced soil that can store water because of the hydrogel made after the Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) in diapers get wet.

Check out the video and enjoy this cool little gardening hack.


Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP)
The secret sauce inside disposable diapers since the mid-80s has been Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP). Referred to by various names such as hydrogel, sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylate absorbents, or in Pamper’s FAQ as Absorbent Gel Material (AGM); these tiny crystals are carefully sprinkled inside the layers of the absorbent core of a diaper, being utilized for their incredible ability to absorb and trap fluid (i.e. from urine and wet poopy). And it’s not just major brand-names like Pampers and Huggies that use SAP, it is used in ALL of the 24 diapers we tested. And we mean all, green disposable diapers, as well as traditional.

SAP is claimed to absorb up to 300x its weight in water and retain it. In the left photo, you see a small pile of white SAP crystals from a diaper’s absorbent core. It has a consistency of a very fine white sand. We then added 65 drops of water, which was completely absorbed by the SAP in a few minutes to become the gelatinous crystal pile you see from two angles in the center and right photos.

Daddy, he lies because of me

This is a video made by MetLife Hong Kong that I am re-sharing because its meaning touching that feelgood spot inside. As a parent I know that sacrifices I have made to provide what I can for my children.

And reflecting back on my childhood I appreciate and eternally grateful for those my parents made for me. I may have not known it then, or fully understood it later on.

Today its all so clear. “Because my child’s future is worth every sacrifice”.
