This one is super fun. The Lego City Hospital. It’s got all kinds of great stuff, and it’s big enough to keep you busy.Continue reading “[LEGO]: Lego City Hospital, Lego City Town”
I’ve been waiting with my trusty 2015 13” retina MacBook at my side for a while now. But this week, the new 2020 13” MacBook was released and it has the new Magic keyboard. With all of the complaints surrounding the older butterfly keyboard mechanism on the previous models, there was just no way that I was willing to upgrade. Of course, other than that, there is not else that’s new. There hasn’t been any new innovations for a while coming out of Apple with the macs. It’s a little sad when the most exciting thing is to fix something that everyone hates.
Two sets today. This is the second. This is Police Helicopter Case, Lego 4+. This one may be the first set that my daughter got. It’s for those graduating right out of Duplos. They used to be called “Juniors”, but I think that they renamed the series to “4+”. The copter is basically in one piece, which you then stick a bunch of pieces onto. It’s got a police officer and a “crook” as she liked to call them. This is from when she was starting to get into cops and robbers. I love that it has little blocks for money, and the “crook” has a crowbar for the ATM. The whole thing is really a great caricature, it’s all the more fitting since we had our mailbox pried open with what appears to have been a crowbar.
Back to Legos! Another set has been completed: Tow Truck Trouble, Lego City Police. This one is a lot of fun. It’s go two motorcycles, a truck to build, and a safe. Not too hard, some pieces missing. Maybe we can find what we’re missing. This one went pretty fast. Hopefully, it’s a sign of speed for coming sets.
It’s been about 3 weeks now that I’ve been at home working. I’m grateful that I’ve been here; and I’ve thought a lot during these weeks about how lucky I am to be able to still be employed, but without needing to be out in the general public.Continue reading “Class and Privilege”
Gonna have plenty of free time in the coming weeks. This afternoon the county set in place a shelter in place order. This effectively shutters everything except for non-essential stores and services till April 7th.
Lots and lots of free time.
