Abandoned(?) Auto

When I stand outside after school waiting for parents to pick up kids, my eyes often fall on a car that’s parked across the street. It’s been there for a long time. I often wonder if there is a limit to how long a car can just sit on the side of the road with flat tires.

Milk Made

These words on the package of cheese in my refrigerator made me laugh:

Haha! Isn’t that like calling strawberries “gluten free”, or saying water is made with “non GMO ingredients”?

I mean, I suppose you can make “cheese” without milk. That’s the kind of cheese sauce I like. But usually that’s called “cheese flavored sauce”, so there’s no pretending.

Can cheese be made without milk and still be called cheese? Even the Velveeta I just bought has milk as its first ingredient.

A Little Different

My wallet was disintegrating, so I went looking for a new one. I have used the same style of wallet for many years. It’s tiny, and has clear plastic on both sides, letting me see inside.

While I was browsing Amazon, I saw an alternative. It was made of thicker leather, so maybe it would last longer. Plus, it came in green!

It was bigger than I expected. At first I balked and left it in the box. Then I decided to try it. So far so good…

Bye Bye Banner

Lloyd helped me fix my website display problems! Yay! Thank you, Lloyd!

It meant changing to a new theme – that is, a new style of display for everything. I started using this last theme back in 2013. I couldn’t make my old banner work for the new theme, but that was okay. It was probably time to change it. I looked for something abstract, but decided to go with a picture. I like it, because it’s trees and I like gardening, so it works.

Goodbye, old banner. You served well.

The Switcher to Witcher

My TV is kind of old, so it only has two HDMI outlets. For a long time, it was just my cable box and my Xbox, but then I got a Roku. I didn’t want to always be fumbling around the back of the TV when I wanted to switch from cable to Xbox, so I got an HDMI splitter. It was super easy to put in, and it will be very easy to switch between sources. There’s even a light to show you which line is active!

I used the opportunity to switch to my Xbox and start a new game. I’m going to try playing The Witcher. It’s an old game now, but it’s just the kind of game I like – open world, main quest with side quests, swords and magic. Perfect! I only played for a little while last night. The tutorials took a lot of concentration.

Sorry the pictures are still weird and the comments are still unreadable. I’ll get it figured out. In the meantime, I can see the comments by signing in and going to the Bradaptation website control center.
