Week 35 of my 52 week photo challenge found me ... gaaaaaaaames!

Thanks to TableTop (on +Geek & Sundry) I’ve really gotten interested in tabletop games. Most recently, I picked up Zombie Dice and have been teaching my daughters to play. If you don’t know how to play, watch this informative intro (goo.gl/uQE2bD) by +Wil Wheaton!

It’s interesting to see how my 6 year old will seriously consider whether to keep rolling after getting one shotgun blast, no matter how many brains she has at the time. Meanwhile, my 4 year old would never stop rolling, so I’m currently limiting her to three rolls per turn for now. It seems to have worked in her favor, as she’s won twice.

We also have a travel edition of Qwirkle (goo.gl/hp8BRM) that I’ve been bringing to family functions. Everyone’s been enjoying that and it’s so easy to carry, explain, set up and play.

Cards Against Humanity has been a real joy to play when we have college friends over for dinner that we don’t see all too often (quite possibly because we have kids and they don’t). For a more family friendly card game, we’ve also got Dixit, which is sort of like Apples to Apples, but with pretty, pretty pictures.

And then there’s Ticket to Ride, which has caused some controversy between family members due to blocked routes and alliances being formed. It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to play this one in real life (I have it on my phone), although it’s more due to the lack of time and space that it takes to play than any hurt feelings.

On my current wish list: Munchkin, Fluxx, Tsuro, Catan Jr.

What’s your favorite game right now?

Can someone confirm to me if the colors in the drawings of the dress are literally the same?

Because now I feel like I'm losing my mind!

Both dresses in your picture are indeed the same color.  My paint program says the colors are both:  
R: 135
G: 154

Week 34 of my 52 week photo challenge found me gardening!

I’m not exactly sure where it came from, but my 6 year old daughter recently asked me if we could grow some plants. She wanted to grow daisies and tomatoes.

So I took to the interwebs and did a little research. What sort of plants are compatible with tomatoes? Which kitchen scraps can I replant and regrow? What sort of soil and fertilizer should I use?

We settled on taking a shot at cherry tomatoes, grown alongside basil, chives, and marigolds. I also had some bell pepper seeds (taken right out of a bell pepper from the grocery store!), so I planted that in a second pot along with another set of tomatoes, basil, chives and marigolds. We did a smaller pot of marigolds and nasturtium.

And I read about regrowing onion and lettuce. So we’re attempting that in their own smaller pots as well. If the onion sprouts shoots, I’ll separate them and plant a few of them alongside the other plants for green onion leaves and try to grow at least one back to full size.

The lettuce wasn’t yet ready to be planted when I took this photo, but I’m sure I’ll be taking pictures as things start to actually sprout.

My 6 year old happily helped me prep the pots, add the soil (potting soil), mix in fertilizer (all-purpose) and (her favorite part) water EVERYTHING! Oh, and for some added fertilizer, we have a fish tank with guppies which I partially change water from every week or so, and the water (and fish poop) that comes out of the tank goes towards watering the plants! Hurray for free fertilizer!

And hurray for growing our own food (hopefully)!

I have larvae in my mulch pile.  When I sent photos to one of the online response teams they said, don;t worry, it's just Japanese beetles.  Never seen the actual beetles, just big larvae.

I believe you mean "untied bowtie"

That would be Untied bowtie, Mustache, sprinter, home base, big R.

Maybe this is why I only have 500 points =(

Introduction
I'm a dad, a husband, a son and a brother. I love good food and good beer, but always (well, usually) in moderation. I love movies, video games, technology and science, but often vicariously through others. Things aren't cheap!

You can call me Enlightened, Whovian, Browncoat, Jedi (or Scoundrel), Greendalien (or Human Being), Strawhat and G-Man.

I enjoy social media, but often find myself disconnected while I'm enjoying life.

And I don't consider that to be a bad thing at all.

Much mahalos to Honolulu Beerworks for opening their doors for the IngressFS: Honolulu event! The doppelbock was amazing, especially with the reuben sandwich! I also got a taste of the Sheltered Bay IPA, which is a must have! Just wish I had remembered to bring my growler with me.

Creamy flavor unlike any other ice cream I've ever had, which I guess makes sense since I've never had goat's milk ice cream before. Just be careful not to let the scoop fall off the cone!
