POTW: West Millers Cove

West Millers Cove Rd

   Fall has been pretty interesting here in East Tennessee this year.  The color up in the higher elevations seemed to come and go VERY quickly, while the color down in the lower elevations has hung around for a while (at least until the cold snap this weekend with all the wind and now rain).  Down here in the valley, there have been some patches of absolute brilliance!

   Holly and I stumbled upon this scene a few weeks ago when it snowed in the mountains.  We were driving around, trying to find a good vantage point and decided to head out West Millers Cove road.  While we didn't find a great view of the snow there… we DID find some awesome color on the small road leading to the Mountain Home Community, just past Blackberry Farm.  As you can see, the color there was amazing!

Using a Fitness Tracker to Monitor Your Sleep

   Do you feel tired all the time and just can't figure out why or perhaps you've just always been curious at how well you sleep?  Well one of the many uses of the current fitness tracker devices is sleep tracking.  Don the device before heading to bed and it will give you information about how much you tossed and turned and if you ever woke up in the middle of the night.  Pretty interesting stuff.  In the past when I reviewed the Fitbit devices, this was the single most fascinating aspect of the wearables to me.  I guess I just always wondered what I was doing all those hours while I was off in never, never land.
