Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that, of course, I survived the so-called Polar Vortex, which was frigid. Luckily, we had heat continually, which wasn’t the case with parts of the town south of me. Imagine losing heat when it’s -10°F/-23°C. Some people lost heat in the middle of the night for hours. Now it’s 35°F and it feels balmy.
Last Monday my car wouldn’t start after work. Luckily, my brother lives near that library and he came to my rescue. The car was towed to a repair shop, but they couldn’t look at it till Thursday, when they discovered it was a problem with the electronic key mechanism. Go figure. We had other keys so all’s well. Since he was so helpful with the car, I made my brother a pecan pie.
I have discovered that Hoopla Digital offers many of the Great Courses courses. I’ve happened on one about Mental Math, multiplying double digits like 36 x 78 or adding 395 +882+130 in your head. The professor Alexander Benjamin, PhD teaches at Harvey Mudd College and is quite engaging. mental math keeps your brain sharp and isn’t as hard as you think.
I watched Cary Grant in The Batchelor and the Bobby-Soxer and just finished Heart Beats Loud last night. Both were pure entertainment, but I’d say the former was the better film.
