It's long. I won't paste the text here because the pictures I talk about are interwoven into the blog post. Basically it's me holding forth and showing my lack of knowledge about anything artistic lol.

Des Moines Art Center... Thoughts
I went to the Des Moines Art Center on my vacation.  I had high hopes for it. I’d been once before and stumbled onto a traveling exhibition of a photographer whose work I was familiar with and that I liked quite a bit. This time I was not so lucky, however....

Proofing book two and finding whole chapters I forgot I had written lol.
This is why I let things rest before editing them.

Made Spaghetti Eis (Spaghetti ice cream) today like I used to get in Germany.
Smoosh ice cream through a Spaetzli maker, top with strawberry sauce, and some grated white chocolate for the "cheese". Underneath but out of sight is a dollop of whipped cream.
Delicious and just like I remember.

Blood glucose meters are so variable.

Three meters, same drop of blood. Three results.

But which one is right?

The bottom one consistently scores higher on accuracy tests by websites but the top two are nearer each other. The one on the top right is the 'newest' of the line with Bluetooth connectivity to an Android app that is absolutely awful.

I'm going with the bottom one because of the Internet reviews.

All samples from same drop of blood within 2 seconds from first sample to last sample so very little variation there I wouldn't think.
I'd use a test solution but each meter/strip has to have its own. There isn't a general purpose one, which is stupid. Why isn't there a solution at 150 that any meter would be able to use?

I'm four minutes into the movie and realized it was in foreign and I was reading subtitles. (Yes, "foreign" is an actual language.)

Woot!
Finished processing the edits from the editor. Need to write a couple sections that I accidentally left out oops. But that's only a couple pages and I have them in the notes... I suspect that's why I thought I'd written them. I'll be done soon. Then it's cover time.
Maybe I'll just write another seventy pages so I can put off working on the cover lol.

Today's pictures were mostly candy related. No, I didn't eat all that, or even most or some of it. I was trying something with my camera. I'm pretty happy with how they came out considering.

Got a new laptop.
Tried to use Microsoft Edge.
It was literally faster to install Google Chrome and login to account than it was to get videos to play on Facebook.
If your browser requires hacking to use the most popular site on the Internet then you are doing it wrong.
