Last night just around midnight we finally had a thunderstorm go through our property. Feels like the first one that has come across our house this year, but it brought some nice lightning with it, for a very short time period. I took these shots right out my office window.

How to Make a Custom iPhone Wallpaper Background

I wanted to post something a little different today, so here is a slightly useless use of your iPhone's wallpaper screen, an electronic business card or ID name tag.  I have found a few uses for doing this other than it looking a little conceited and vain, but it was a lot by trial and…
