Refrigeration, or lack thereof

A month or so ago, a carton of milk in my fridge went bad a couple of days before the sell-by date. A couple weeks later, the same thing happened again, this time with an unopened carton. Around the same time, half of an avocado went moldy in my fridge. That had never happened before, […]

Assorted insights

A day of interesting-to-me insights and thoughts. But no time/energy to write them up in any detail, so a couple of notes-to-self as reminders (each of these could be a full entry in itself if I had time and if I were more awake): This morning, it suddenly occurred to me while I was driving […]

Morning work

For years now, my usual morning routine has gone roughly like this: Wake up. Turn on my iPad mini. Look at Google News, and read any articles that look interesting.
