It seems that Tom and I are becoming inadvertent advocates for a mode of life that speaks to earlier times: rather than take pictures to document our adventures on Saturday-last, we simply enjoyed the experiences and the time together. We journeyed forth to the far-off land of Bonney Lake and the Washington summer Renaissance Faire […]
Round about October-November our son, Matthew, was discussing the “Raspberry Pi” computer he was using (an adjunct to his other devices). I asked if he was interested in getting the magazine and as a bonus (surprise!) it included a “free” basic raspberry pi device for me. It arrived last week. Tonight, Tom is helping me […]

I matched the stop score in “Quiddler” — a fun little game put out by the same people who made the “Set” game Here’s a screenshot as proof! No prizes for this, I finished 22 hours after the puzzle went up (only took me two tries to get this, though). This is a thumbnail, click […]
featherbee had her results on her blog today, these are mine!
