The little plastic bags contain soap and deodorant respectively. The deodorant solution took me years to arrive at. I found the easy-to-pack deodorant crystal rock to be ineffective. And Shira wasn't having my, 'but I'm traveling I don't need to wear deodorant' philosophy. So now I buy a travel size deodorant, remove the tray of antiperspirant material and discard the bulky plastic shell. The result takes up far less space, yet is just as effective as any other standard deodorant.
I find that stuff beefy enough to keep my hair relatively in check. The utility side is more interesting. I keep quite a few over the counter meds in there, including allergy, cold and antidiarrheal pills. When you need any of these pills, they're a life saver.
I intentionally keep caffeinated and decaffeinated tea bags on hand, knowing the caffeinated options can be used to help keep me awake. I carry the thumb-sized USB light for the same reason I carry a Bic lighter: it has an impressive size to functionality ratio. One common use of the light: plug it into a USB charger in the bathroom and use it as a nightlight. I have a vague recollection of a post from years ago where I suggested what a meaningful gift a YouTube playlist could be.
I can't find it now, but the concept has stuck with me. Compiling music, How-To-Videos, movie clips, and other YouTube discoveries for a friend or loved one seems like a fun, frugal and thoughtful way to show you care without buying more stuff. Think of it as a YouTube powered mixtape. With my oldest Brother's birthday coming up, I figured I'd finally try my idea out. I visited YouTube and started collecting up clips. Finding content was easy, the problem I ran into was there was no way to annotate my playlist. Just sending my brother a list of videos wasn't going to cut it.
Each video needed a little explanation to provide context. I couldn't find a way to do this on YouTube so I whipped up my own solution. I give you: Gift-of-a-Playlist. Step 1: create and publish a Google Sheet with two columns: Video and Message. See this example.
Step 4: share the URL of the generated playlist. Here's the above example in playlist form. You can find the source code for this little app here. One neat feature is that the playlist you send remains connected to the spreadsheet. If you send the link and find a typo or think of another clip to add, you can update the spreadsheet and the link will reflect those changes.
Before I send my brother his now belated birthday gift, I've got one more feature to implement. I'd like to start off with the videos hidden and have a 'Reveal' button that shows them. Think of it as giving the person a chance to unwrap your virtual gift. With the triangularly shaped two-tone purple leaves it wasn't hard to identify.
This guy is almost certainly an Oxalis triangularis. While exotic to me, this is a common ornamental plant. It supposedly does well both in your garden and as a house plant. They have a reputation for being low maintenance. The plant is edible, though not in large quantities. It's also a bit of a movie star, making for impressive time-lapses due to its photonastic behavior. Here's a couple more pictures from our walk, which took us along Holmes Run for a mile or so. Part of my plantar fasciitis recovery plan was to get new running shoes, an activity which is usually fraught with frustration.
From finding the right size, to avoiding the latest gimmick, buying shoes has always been a crap shoot. They were lightweight, comfortable, and promised all the rewards of a minimalist shoe. This all held true, until it didn't. It's like a friend had turned on me: suddenly running in my Trail Gloves left me with debilitating pain in my left foot. I tried running with them using orthotics, no dice. My body was loudly and clearly telling me it was time to get new shoes. I had one glimmer of hope during this upcoming shoe buying experience. For years he's been encouraging me to come out and get fitted for running shoes.
Now, with pain and no clue what shoes I should buy, I finally made the effort to visit him. The shopping experience was almost surreal. John asked me some questions about my running, which as far as I can tell, solicited only vague answers. He measured my foot and inspected my orthotics. He then returned from the back room with two pairs of shoes. I slipped each on in turn and they both felt awesome. I ended up selecting the first pair, paid and walked out with my brand new kicks.
There was no stream of endless shoe styles to consider; no mental battle as to whether I was wearing the right size. It was just: put shoes on, feel good, move on. So far I've logged about 20 miles of activity in the shoes. My right foot, the one without the plantar fasciitis is in heaven.
My left foot has been achy during my runs, but this is orders of magnitude less pain than I was getting with my Trail Gloves. There's no doubt I've traded the lightweight sports-car feel of the Merrells for a bulky Cadillac ride in these new shoes. But with my current injury, the luxury feel is just what I need. I was happy to leave all of this alone: I had shoes that fit and were comfortable. But Shira was doing some online shopping and managed to come across a review for the Brooks Ghost 11 size 12, 1D , the shoes I'd bought.
Reading the review, I found the shoes were decidedly on target for my needs:. Wait, your zero drop shoes stopped being comfortable and you needed a more comfortable option? Me too! I'll gladly trade speed for endurance and comfort. Any run I finish injury free is a win. This reviewer suggests there's value in using both a minimalist shoe my Trail Gloves and the Brooks ghost 11 in tandem. That's a novel concept, and perhaps when my PF fully clears up, I'll give that a try.
Until then, I'm going to relish my new uber comfy shoes. This post is basically one big spoiler - so don't bother reading it till you've watched I Am Mother. Perhaps it's all the shul I've attended thanks to Shavuot , but I can't help but see I Am Mother as a sort of uber-modern take on the story of Noah's Ark and biblical creation in general. This may all be in my head, but the links seem too obvious to ignore.
Consider these brief comments on the story of Noah :. In a movie like I Am Mother , one expects the robot uprising to be the result of AI outgrowing their human creators. But that's only partially the case here. In this case, robots don't want to destroy us, they want to 'help' us. It's like they've taken a page out of Bereshit : to fix the world, one must wipe out humanity and start anew with a moral core of society. I can't help but see other biblical connections: for one, there's massive container ship that couldn't look more ark-like if the movie makers tried.
There's Daughter's folded paper animals which mirror Noah's ship-mates.
Noah uses a dove to confirm that the Earth is habitable, the movie uses a rat. Genesis arranges for a number of tests to confirm Abraham's moral fortitude , Mother has Daughter take a series of tests as well, the failing of which we learn would mean her destruction and a restart of the experiment. Mother explaining that it's a universal consciousness that isn't confined to one body but is everywhere sounds an awful lot like a description of G-d.
By Daughter destroying the robot form of Mother, we see a severing of the direct link between man and G-d, leaving only an etherial one. The robot's planting of crops seems to mirror G-d's construction of the Garden of Eden. With these connections, I see a story that's more nuanced than your typical post-apocalyptic humans-fight-for-their-survival flick. I see a story that wants to test our ideas of what it means to be moral, and what it means to put the good of the world above the good of the person. The story of Noah and religion in general should be a challenging thing, and I Am Mother brings to light why that is.
And if one goal of the movie was to take these settled ideas and make us wrestle with them again, then it has succeeded. Update: Here's another biblical connection, this one provided by the IMDB movie FAQ : None of the characters we meet are ever given a name, and the named characters whom we never meet all have well-known biblical names: Jacob, Rachel, and Simon.
In some sections it's quite shallow, but other sections are inviting. There's a note at the Columbia Pike trail head that talks about how the waterway is under a delayed trout harvest , so that tells me that they stock the stream with trout; a promising sign. I spent a couple of hours fishing the first 1, yards of the trail; from the trail head off Columbia Pike to the first water crossing. Getting down to the water was simple, as there was a bushwhacked trail to follow.
From there, I made my way first up the bank to the bridge, and then down the bank to the water crossing. My first thought when getting to the edge of the water was that the level was too low; I thought for sure my little adventure was over before it had started. I was immediately put at ease when my first cast landed me a tiny sunfish or was it a bluegill? He snatched up my trout magnet lure like it was a gourmet meal and he hadn't eaten in days. As I made my way along the water, I found a number of slightly deeper pockets of water and pulled in more pan fish.
All told, I easily caught more than half a dozen, all on trout magnets. But it wasn't just that I caught fish that made this adventure so notable. I'd driven less than 20 minutes from my house and found myself surrounded by the sites and sounds of nature. While off-trail fishing, I saw more herons than people herons: 2, people: 1.
It was wonderfully relaxing, and actually catching fish was a nice bonus. The trail isn't perfect: I didn't have any luck pulling out more noble trout and you can hear road noise at various points along the water. Holmes Run has a reputation for smelling like sewage, which at moments I could detect hints of.
But my gosh, I've stood along the Potomac a number of times on a weekday trying to catch fish, only to watch time expire before I had to head home. And the sunfish I caught were truly beautiful creatures. I know folks fish the Potomac to haul in massive catfish and the like, and if that's your jam go for it.
But if you're looking for a close-to-DC ultralight-friendly fishing experience, definitely give Holmes Run a try. I know I'm curious to go back again and see if my experience is repeatable, or just beginner's luck. I was using Google Sheets for planning, and noted that I was making copies of the various tabs to serve as an impromptu archiving mechanism.
But why manually duplicate tabs when you can write code to properly snapshot the data? Below is a the Google App Script to do just this. The above code grabs the active sheet and makes a copy of it. It then copies the data back onto itself with contentsOnly set to true. This insures that there won't be broken formula references when the archive is created. The code then creates a new document, removes the unneeded Sheet1 from it, and copies the prepared data into it.
The code also moves the archived file from Google Drive's root to a folder of your choice. Here's a few screenshots and a link to a sample document. If you make use of Installable Triggers , you can set this archiving function to happen automatically at a given day or time. But I can tell with authoritatively this isn't so. I just finished listening to a book that would fit perfectly among its polished YouTube and Instagram peers. The only reason it isn't featured highly on social media is that it was written in !
That was the year that Captain Slocum finished the first known solo-around-the-world sea voyage. Even with my little knowledge of sailing I can appreciate how epic this feat was. This is the second sailing related book I've read in a row, and while my last book was modern , both voyages faced remarkably similar challenges.
Storms, pirates, repairs, improvisations, loneliness, navigational hurdles, and even the dangers of coral reefs. And yet in Slocum's case, the challenges are complicated by both lack of technology and crew. How does one keep a ship on course and yet sleep? How does one wake in the middle of the ocean and be confident of their position without GPS or at least an accurate chronometer?
When storms overpower the vessel, how does one manipulate the sails solo? How does one protect oneself from hostile natives and pirates? Overcoming any of these challenges would be impressive; Slocum navigated them all. What he lacked in technology and hands he made up for with skill and luck. Listening to Slocum's journey was a pleasure. During this journey we experience gales and illness, natives and pirates, successes and failures. It's a great read listen. If I could offer one criticism though, it would be that Slocum's tone is just a bit too up beat.
Yes he faced challenges, but he can't help but brush them aside. Like I said, he'd fit in with the Instagram crowd. I want to hear more details of the hard won lessons. Of course it's his story, and his acts of courage and fortitude. If he wants to throw in a bit of humble bragging about his navigational skills, he's more than earned it. And besides, I probably sound the same way when I recount trips I've taken.
Sure we missed the bus and spent 8 hours in a run down bus station, but I did get to try a new flavor of soda from the vending machine! It tasted terrible. But it was new! How insufferable. How me. The text for Slocum's book is out of copyright, so you can read it for free on gutenberg. There's also an impressive set of narrated Google Earth videos available on YouTube. After listening to Slocum's account, I found this article detailing the search for details about Slocum's on-board clock. At the time, a sailor's clock would have been an essential navigational tool, and it's hard not to pause at Slocum's flippant selection.
Think a modern day explorer opting to leave his GPS at home and instead bring along a novelty compass. I think the author has it right when he suggests Slocum's intention of bringing an inferior clock was to make a statement:. There were many notable moments from Slocum's journey, but one that stayed with me was this exchange he had with a passing ship:.
I love that: beware the trap of knowing your location too well. There's a life lesson in there, though I'm not exactly sure what it is. Slocum was clearly an interesting fellow, and perhaps he was waging an unwinnable war against innovation. Months ago I started feeling foot pain during and after running.
Little did I know I was entering my first bout with plantar fasciitis. Here's how I've coped with this scourge. Phase 1: Denial. I chalked the pain up to simple muscle soreness. Surely I was pushing my running to the next level and some discomfort was to be expected. To some degree, this held true.
The pain in my right foot went away. But the pain in my left foot persisted. After the third run in a row where the pain was significant, I knew I had to do something. Phase 2: More Denial. I decided I'd give myself two weeks off of running. Surely absolute rest would fix it. Never mind that I continued to stand at my desk and my left foot continued to hurt.
Still, I felt like it was getting better. After two weeks of no running I went for a jog. Within minutes, the pain returned and I had to stop. That was quite a moment of despair. Phase 3: Google can fix this, right?
I finally had to face it: I was injured. I made an appointment with a podiatrist, and in the mean time did some Googling. Typically, using the Internet to self diagnose is a bad idea. I figured I'd end up deciding I had foot cancer or the the like. But in this case my symptoms matched plantar fasciitis to a tee. It wasn't just my left foot that hurt, but it was my left heel. And the fact that the pain was worse stepping out of bed in the morning made it even more obvious that I'd named my curse properly. I'd only ever heard of plantar fasciitis in passing, and it was always hinted at as an unshakable condition.
These discussions conjured up images of a chronic disease; the same way someone might say their crohn's is acting up. Phase 4: Taking Action. While I was waiting for my doctor's appointment, I adopted two new strategies. One, I lowered my desk to a sitting position. Man, that provided some immediate relief. I also ordered a mat to stand on and will at some point re-introduce the my standing routine.
I also did some research and found a series of suggested exercises to help runners recover from injury. I've lost the source of this list of exercises sorry oh brilliant list maker! The first time I finished this routine I noticed something remarkable: my heel pain was gone! I was cured! OK, not so fast. The pain did return. But it was a relief just to know that I could affect this pain in some way. Pushing my luck a bit, I tried going through the routine and then immediately going for a run. I started my run with zero pain, and after a few minutes I felt a dull ache.
Still, I was able to complete my run with minimal discomfort. This was another sign that my running life as I knew it wasn't over. I can't recommend the above workout highly enough. I awkwardly made my way through the exercises the first few times, but with practice I could tell that I was gaining small measures of flexibility, balance and strength to perform the exercises with a modicum of grace. Sticking to the same exercises is almost certainly a recipe for disaster, but I'm telling you, the above sequence is a winner for runners. Between the sitting and the exercises, I found that I could resume my running.
At times the heel pain would disappear, and other times it would flair up. Whatever was going on wasn't a simple linear equation: I'd feel like I was on the mend, and then bam! I'd found myself with a burning pain in my left heel. Phase 5: Seeing a Doctor.
