Spinny reader


Here’s LRN4 spinning.  I have no idea why she was smiling and not throwing up.  Great Art taken at Dorney Park, PA last September, courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, and part of my famous Machinery series.

Good day today.  LRN29 spent the morning with us, as usual.  And we had a nice visit, also as usual.  She and LRN4 went to the clinic this morning and took a walk around the gardens afterwards, something LRN29 hadn’t done before.  They reported it was enjoyable and that we’re living in a beautiful place.

Later in the day, LRN4 needed to head out to the store.  I was working on my educational app (progress so far: small), so she decided to go by herself.  That’s kind of a big step as far as I’m concerned.  Everything went well, of course.  I’m sure she enjoyed a few minutes of alone time, which she hasn’t gotten much any of since February.  Also, it’s yet another sign of how well things are going.

Spent a lot of the day working on my educational app, as mentioned above.  I got some basic structure done after working on it for a couple of days.  Then I Google-Plus’d with LRN1 and discovered a much easier way to make it work better, look better, and include the basic database structure, just by changing the type of project.  Sigh.  I scrapped everything I’d done so far and have started over. This was a good time for that, since I really had made very little progress.  I’m getting back into the groove with iOS programming, though, so it wasn’t completely wasted time.  In fact, I’ll venture that it wasn’t even mostly wasted.  Many software development gurus (maybe I should just skip directly from developer to guru – what do you think?) say software projects are most successful if you throw away your first draft anyway.  This wasn’t exactly a first draft, but maybe I can call my throwaway done on this project.

Anyway.  Spent another hour or so this evening talking with LRN23 about business decisions I need to make on my medical software project.  We didn’t really reach any conclusions, but he gave me lots of good advice and good things to think about.  I really have a lot of work to do on that one too.

It’s great to have more work than I can handle!  Nobody is paying me to do any of it right now, but I have high hopes for a very good payout from both of my major projects in the not-too-distant future.  No guarantees, but no limits either.

And I spent my blogging time talking with my brother, so I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news:  thrown black pudding incident!

See you tomorrow.

    Apparently, LRN4’s spinny ride wasn’t moving yet when this picture was taken. Either that, or the women on the adjacent platform was holding on for dear life.

    Sometimes you just have to spin. What movie reference?
