Learning New Technologies

Learning new things can be tough, especially when you are trying to teach yourself. A few weeks ago I posted something to LinkedIn, (and copied it here) about things I planned to do in order to become a better developer. The first thing I did after posting that was go to CodeCademy and complete their

My sister inspired these crescent rolls

There’s nothing overly fanciful; they are Pillsbury crescent rolls. So. That’s about all it is. OH WAIT. That’s not true. A few hours before I made a bit of a baste for these. It included garlic, Italian seasoning, (McCormick) and butter. I took each roll and drenched it in the buttery concoction. I then rolled

Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs. I can’t get enough of them, they are like God’s gift to my mouth and they are just amazing. The only downside is that you always end up, (always, always, always) with more filling than your egg-halves can handle. My recipe for deviled eggs is pretty simple: take some mustard, about

Mashed Potatoes

So, now we’re on to mashed potatoes, but I feel like I should warn you that I’ve already eaten my dinner and it was amazing. But I am here to tell you how to mimic my food creation experiences. So lets dive in and have fun. I’m still a little boozed, though. And I plan to

Turkey Cookin’

So this is the first year I’ve decided to actually cook the turkey. Normally that little gem falls to someone else in the family. My uncle, maybe, or my aunt. My grandfather unlikely, but maybe. My mother, usually, or my sister. A few weeks ago I got it into my head that I was going

I’m not sure

I’m not sure what draws someone to choosing military service. Im not sure of what reasons they might have, internal or external, for giving up a part of their lives to serve the country we live in. I’m not sure that we should be celebrating the group as a whole, either. I’m not sure if

Programming Resources

I’ve been watching the conversations recently about failed video game launches. When people see bugs in software, they are rightfully annoyed; especially if they’ve spent a lot of money on whatever it is they’re using. Even if there’s a workaround it’s annoying. When these things happen En Masse, like with the Arkham Knight video game

Cooking again

So I’ve found myself cooking a lot ever since I moved. I don’t know where that many fast food places are to eat, and none of them are close enough to be used by my lazy ass. So I cook a lot more for myself than I used to. And I am pretty great at
