    Wow. That was fast. Just found out the package I ordered from Walmart has arrived (the screen protectors)! So onto picking them up tomorrow.

    Unfortunately not. But I paid my debts today and I've ordered the last German New Frontier book via Amazon :D

    Got a nice fat rebate from my power company because of the high efficiency air conditioner I just had installed. :beer:

    Thanks to some good advice I will not pay as much revenue taxes as last year.

    Got to see Detective Pikachu today! :) And I got to pick up my new Nintendo Switch Screen Protectors. Trying to put the protector on was a joy (as in it's a bit of a hassle). Luckily it has no scratches or cracks in it and only a few bubbles (so that's a positive there).

    Saw a steam engine on the mainline this morning, and the sweet smell of its coal smoke.

    Lovely.

    Filled out an application and did the test for a transcribing job. I think I did OK.

    Just back from the allotment and the potatoes are thriving. We could do with some rain though.

    It started raining minutes after I was in (after I had spent hours outside).:D

    This new renderer I'm using keeps on providing happies for me.

    New one: Light Dispersion

    Think Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album cover.

    Example in my recent work (look at the reflection in the mirror):

    That is awesome. What a fascinating program.

    Had brunch with my best friend of 40 years. We poke at each other on FB a little but tend not to interact too much there-we now hold vastly opposing political/social views- but when we get together it’s like not even a day has passed and I’m always so grateful for her friendship. She’s really been such a wonderful blessing.

    Had some really good luck today in Pokemon Go. Lucked out and got 3 shiny Torchics, evolved my Combusken into a Blaziken, got a 10km egg and a 2km one, some items and some gifts. :)

    Just been out to water the plants and add to the compost. The first of the strawberry plants are now producing strawberries. Awesome!
