Today I was at the grocery store, and I was trying to park. In the space of about a minute (or maybe 2), I was prevented from taking five (5) different parking spaces. Various methods were used to achieve this.

Why, oh Why can’t these browsers agree on anything? Why is “width: 100%” full-width on one and full-width+margins (~110%) on the other? When I way 100%, I want 100%, not 90%, not 110%! Why does “right: 0px” make it full width on one and do nothing on the other?

Yesterday our refrigerator decided to stop. It still made its noises and blew air around inside, but it was warm air. We noticed it was a little warm the night before, but decided to let it go overnight and see. In the morning, we had a freezer full of thawed meat, vegetables, […]

I feel like that one-hour time change has stolen about a week of sleep. I am having the worst time adjusting to it. Maybe I’m getting old or something. Sigh…
