This week on the blog: January 22–28, 2017
Some weeks slog by, some go by in a blur. This week falls into the latter category. If I close my eyes, I can’t really recall what I was doing on any particular day. The weather was also strange, with some late January days reaching up toward 60s, while others dipped, more seasonably down into the 20s.
Here’s what happened on the blog this week.
- On Sunday, I wrote a short review of Richard Garriot’s (civilian astronaut and creator of the Ultima series of computer games) new book Explore/Create.
- After several dead car batteries thanks to leaving the car lights on, I finally put in place some practical automation to prevent it from happening again.
- On Tuesday, I reflected upon oceans, their vastness, and on the passing of Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon (so far).
- Smart phones are useful, but, as I wrote about on Wednesday, I am not a phone person. I prefer other forms of communication.
- Why is it that any house I walk into other than my own seems so well decorated? I wrote about this strange phenomenon on Thursday.
- In the ongoing debate on the value of cursive handwriting, I made my opinion known in the piece I wrote on Friday.
- Finally, while I love the idea of e-books, there is one problem I have with reading them on an iPad. I wrote about it on Saturday.
Next week, I’ve got opinions on home towns, the Pinewood Derby and much more. Thanks for reading!
