Wally is very food motivated, but is also good at waiting until he's given the okay to eat something.

Wally's okay with wading through shallow water, but it looks like this water may have been kind of cold.

Wally featured on the official flag of Corgis.

I had this idea I couldn't get out of my head of replacing the bear on the California flag with a corgi.  I have approximately no artistic talent, so this was the best I could come up with.  I have yet to find someone willing to draw a better version (including using a font that actually looks like the California flag)...

This past weekend was a beautiful day for a bike ride.  This is on the Stevens Creek Trail, overlooking Moffett & NASA Ames, with a view of the Diablo mountains on the left and the Santa Cruz mountains on the right--the mountains that make Silicon Valley (or Santa Clara Valley if you prefer) a valley.

Nasturtium Ice Cream

I tried my first nasturtium (an edible flower) last year, and really liked it--it has a pleasant nutty/peppery flavor.  When harvesting our community garden at work, inspiration struck--I like ice cream with nutty flavors, and actually kind of liked the Humphry Slocomble Salt-n-Pepa ice cream (that had salt and pepper), so maybe nasturtium ice cream would work?

I used the New York Times recipe I used with a lot of success last year.  It's got a base recipe and then lots of directions for how to mix various ingredients into it.  I followed the suggestions for mint & basil--processing the flowers and the sugar together before adding it to the milk & cream.  The larger pieces of flower are strained out before chilling it, resulting in an orangish ice cream.  (Though that could also be due to the egg yolks...)

The result was good (if you like nasturtiums).  The flavor is fairly subtle, giving the ice cream just a hint of nuttiness and pepperiness.  As before, this recipe makes an ice cream that's a little on the sweet side, but based on warnings last time I said I might reduce the sugar I didn't reduce it by much.

The recipe:  http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1016605-ice-cream-base

My first attempt using the recipe (with mint):  https://plus.google.com/+JoeyRozier/posts/TAM3gECbwjK

Birth of a bike lane.

At the suburban corporate campus where I work, bike lanes are being added to one of the roads (as part of a bigger project to make bike & pedestrian traffic safer and more convenient across the campus, including new sidewalks, crosswalks and traffic lights).

There has been some (not too heated) discussion of what effect the removal of the parallel parking here will have.  As a bicyclist, I love them.  But I'm also a driver and a pedestrian--which is why I like using the "people who bike" and "people who drive" terminology.

As someone who bikes, I love these new bike lanes.  They connect to one of the main arteries into campus and will make it much easier and safer to get to work.

As someone who drives, I admit I will miss the parallel parking which was more convenient than the parking lots for me.  But there will still be parking in the parking lots, and without all of the parked cars (and cars parking) mixing with the people walking and people biking, it will be safer to drive through.  (I do wonder, though, if the road will "feel" wider without the parked cars and result in increase speeding.)

As someone who walks, I'm looking forward to not having to squeeze between parked cars when walking around the area, and the generally more pleasant atmosphere.

Nicely put about different perspectives for infrastructure usage and focus.

Wally at bath time when he was a bit younger.  This was after walking around Point Isabel, a huge off-leash park.  Dogs tend to get muddy there, but fortunately there's a dog washing place near the exit.

+HTC is it normal for a repair of a dead pixel on a tablet to take more than 3 weeks (with no updates)?

The USPS shows my Nexus 9 with a dead pixel was received by you on Feb 27.  I've had multiple chat conversations with your customer service, but they can never seem to provide any information other than that the tablet was received.  The most recent conversation revealed what might have been part of the delay--that after directing me to ship it to Houston you internally ship it to Memphis.  But other than that, no details on an estimate of when it will be fixed or shipped back to me.

Is there anything you can do to expedite this so I can have a tablet again?

+HTC nearly a week later and still no response?

I was able to reach customer service again, and once again I was told that the tablet had been received but there was no other update.

Is this the way +HTC typically handles defects in your hardware?

Crosswalk on a new bike/pedestrian path near work.  Combined with the new bike lanes I posted last month, it'll be much more pleasant to ride across campus between two major existing bike/pedestrian trails.

I only started biking to work because I happened to live and work relatively close to a decent biking infrastructure; I imagine improvements like this will make others who were on the fence about biking to work more likely to do so.

The weather here has been nice, so I organized a Bike to Ice Cream day with some of the other bike commuters on my team at work--including one person who used it as an excuse to bike to work for the first time in a long time.

(We let people in cars join us at the ice cream shop, but only those of us who biked could claim to have earned the ice cream. :))

I've heard theories that it's because they don't burn forests often enough. (Forest fires are actually good for the environment, albeit a danger for human activity)

I noticed on an evening walk that corgi butt is sort of like a Cheshire cat grin--it's the last thing that disappears when heading into the dark.

Stone pot bibimbap and kimchi fried rice were good, but could use a little bit more flavor (or maybe even just salt?). Their soy garlic KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) was delicious.

I was happy with everything I tried at Pera. For the main course I had the Pera Talas Böregi, which was chicken and veggies wrapped in phyllo dough, topped with apple matchsticks and coconut curry sauce. The homemade Greek yogurt dessert topped with honey, nuts and fruit was simple but delicious. And since it's yogurt it's healthy right? We were part of a large group (~15 adults and 4 kids), but they accommodated us well.

The pastries are as delicious as they look... and they look amazing. :) The raspberry rose has an almond cake & raspberry/rosewater filling with white chocolate petals, and the chocolate heart has a creme brulee/chocolate mousse/almond cake center. They both had great, balanced flavor and were just sweet enough. It took us a few minutes to start eating the dessert because we didn't want to ruin the presentation. They serve pourover Blue Bottle as well, which pairs really well with the dessert. One pastry might be enough for two to share, but it is hard resisting trying more.

A great place to come with a group--lots of delicious small (and some large) plates to share, and none that we tried were disappointing. Their sliders and pork belly are particularly good. They've got an enormous wine list and a variety of cocktails, but their non-alcoholic options are a bit more limited. (You can ask for some off menu options, like a virgin mojito that was decent.)
