Boxing Day & Solitaire Blitz Boosts

Hey there! Happy Boxing Day!  We had a nice Christmas.  I gave Rod a Samsung Galaxy Tablet – a 7inch job. He’s still finding his way around with it but so far seems happy with it.  He gave me a gorgeous jewelry box that looks like it belongs in a D&D setting. I’ve never had a full sized jewelry box before and honestly, this is the first one I’ve ever seen that really suits the person that is me.  Santa also snuck a speaker tower into the house and put it by the tree after we went to bed.  This uses bluetooth so I can just start music on my phone and away it goes. The speaker is so much better than what I had in mind to go with my phone for music.  It has a built in radio, can charge my phone, and as it’s bluetooth I can connect the computer, iPad, Rod’s computer, or his tablet to it so it’s very versatile.  It was a big surprise, but a really nice one!

But I’m not really here to talk about Christmas.  As many of you who know me on Facebook are aware, I quite enjoy a few different Bingo games and Solitaire Blitz. Although to be honest, I haven’t been too happy with Solitaire Blitz since they changed the format over about a month ago. I still play it though as nothing better that’s similar has come along.

The other day I noticed something I had never seen before and thought I’d mention it in case others might be interested too.

When you go to select your boosters, have you ever noticed the little triangles on the bottom of the screen?  I thought they were decorations, but then one was lit up so I clicked on it and discovered I had a bunch of free Jokers to use that I didn’t know existed.  Here’s what the triangles and  the second page (if there is one) looks like:

If you’re a Solitaire Blitz, Bingo or Bejeweled player on Facebook, feel free to add me – the more the merrier.  Leave a note though so I know who you are and what you play. Otherwise I might not realise why you’ve requested the add.

I know I don’t normally write about Facebook games, but it crossed my mind and I thought I’d share.  Cheers until next time!

30Jan22 When I bought this bread, I just thought maybe there was garlic in the crust or something. Once I got it sliced, I realised that whole cloves of garlic were baked right into the loaf - see the small rectangular shaped hole? The facing slice of bread had a half clove there.  This was so nice.  And lucky for me it was half off - because I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay $6 for a loaf.  But this would probably be worth it for a party or something.  And apologies to my Coles Baker friend.  But feel free to steal this idea! LOL!  #2022pad #BakedGarlicBread #latergram
23Feb22  This was a screen capture from my Strava account where I'd listed what I did, and it showed my stats down below the photo.  This was a relentless 10 round bike and squat exercise my coach at Dark Horse rowing had come up with.  This was pure torture!  #2022pad  #rowing #darkhorserowing #homegymlife #keepmoving #iamadarkhorse  #recumbentbike #squats
04Feb22  No, I'm not into baking aquarium gravel for fun.  This gravel was used in a clean litter box so I could get a urine sample from Noble for the vet.  It took him all day in a room by himself, but he did finally get desperate enough to use it.  I was then able to use a syringe and extract enough into the vial from the vet and could wash the gravel for use in the future.  There's a whole big process of washing aquarium gravel, because you absolutely do not want any of falling into your drain. It'll sit and fill up the U-joint and you'll need a plumber to come fix it.  I followed all the procedures and very thoroughly washed the gravel. Then to dry it, I put it in this glass dish and into a very low temperature oven (150c or about 300f) for a couple hours.  There were still a few damp pieces but the gravel and dish stayed very warm for several hours and any moisture left had dried by time I checked it in the morning.  It's now been bagged for the next time I need it and the pyrex dish has been put through the dishwasher.  So if you ever wanted to know how to get a urine sample from a cat - this is one way to do it.
11Feb22  Noble and Neurmal just hanging out.  This is the first time I've seen Noble on the back of the couch since he became a tripod kitty.  He's getting a lot more confident at trying new things and keeping his balance.  He's a great role model!  #2022pad #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram #latergram
03Feb22 If I could put a thought bubble over Noble's head, it would say "Oh c'mon lady, get up and FEED me! Can't you see I'm just withering away! "  or maybe "Food. Food. Food. Food. Food." #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram #2022pad #latergram
12Feb22  I woke up a bit confused because this routine should only play on the first Saturday of the month rather than every Saturday.  YES. This is an Alexa routine, not an Apple Homepod routine.  In this instance, Alexa is able to do more (like tell me the date and read my calendar to me) than Siri.  But that's OK.  I'm happy to use whatever works.  #2022pad #alexa #routine #wakeup #latergram
