@cleverdevil I looked around online, found what I wanted and went to the shop which didn't in fact have that. I rode a couple of different models of bikes and just wasn't sure. Then I rode a third and knew instantly that was the right one for me. My moral is: ride several different bikes before laying out the $$.
I have ordered a Thunderbolt 4 dock from OWC to see if that will resolve the issue. Ideally, I'd like to move to a pro-level Mac Mini with Apple Silicon, but I want more RAM and ports than the current offering.
My 2017 MacBook Pro is having constant issues with USB peripherals randomly disconnect. Given that I haven't unplugged the laptop from its monitors in months, I am considering moving to a desktop, but timing isn't great right now.
Bedtime no longer exists. Children just randomly walk the halls of my home like feral beasts, ensconced in the same pajamas that they’ve been wearing for days. Partially finished craft projects litter every square inch of my home. Save me!
Made a lovely little holiday libation to enjoy this evening. Bourbon, orange peel, simple syrup, cinnamon stick, clove, and orange bitters. Mixed and stashed in the fridge all day, then strained over an ice ball. Tastes like Christmas in a cup!
Duck stock and duck fat are two of the greatest ingredients in the universe! Tonight, I’ll use the stock to make a sauce for the roasted duck. I’m also boiling some chopped up duck skin to render fat and make duck skin cracklin to toss with some roasted Brussels sprouts :)
A whole duck is a gift that just keeps on giving! Render down the skins to get crackins and duck fat. Make confit from the legs and thighs. Sear the breast. Make stock from the carcass. I treat all poultry this way, but duck is especially good in this regard :)
Because I was sick last week, I didn’t prepare any turkey for Thanksgiving. Well, tonight I made up for it by making an amazing sous vide turkey breast with roasted crispy skin and pressure cooker gravy. It. Was. Epic. 🦃
I made an extremely delicious pasta for dinner this evening. The sauce was made with mirepoix, garlic, Parmesan rinds, sirloin tips, diced tomato, wine, broth, a little cream, and lots of grated Parmesan.
unkind ... it’s freezing rain here so combine pandemic with that and looks like I’ll be playing pantry roulette for lunch / dinner ... PS it’s a good thing my great pantry re-org of 2020 already happened and I’ve already “triaged” the items from 10+ years ago
@cleverdevil That's a good name. Has the Roomba tech moved forward at all? We have one that's about 8 years old and has had brushes and batteries replaced. Tempted to get a new one but it seems they haven't technically improved over this time?
@canion this is our first Roomba so it’s tough to say! Before this, we have used Neato brand vacuums, and have largely found them wanting. The Roomba we got was on a huge sale for Black Friday and gets amazing reviews and a recommendation from The Wirecutter, so we went for it.
