I feel this weird need to fill in the gaps in my blog right now. I haven’t been updating much and even missed the April Tinkering update (which will be rolled into an April/May update). A lot has been going on, as you’ve probably managed to infer, and it’s kept me away from a lot of time that would otherwise be spent tinkering. Having Civilization 5 back on the laptop hasn’t helped either.
This blog is supposed to be focused on tinkering/making/hacking stuff. So why am I posting another chili recipe? Well, mainly because I can’t stop tinkering — every time I try a recipe, I mess with it a bit. My Unholy Good Chili recipe started fairly simple and grew over many iterations into a burn-the-hair-off-your-feet monstrosity. It wasn’t something I wanted to cook up for the Birchwood Bike Team Superbowl Party, as I wanted something more mild. So I found a different recipe, and scribbled it down. Then I edited the hell out of it to formulate my own take on it. I’d say about 60% of the original recipe remains, if that.

Going to try to be more on-the-spot with these posts in 2018. In 2017, I was busy pretty much constantly and unfortunately, some of the tinkering fell by the wayside. So let’s chitchat about what went down in January of 2018, and what my nerdy goals for 2018 are.

After a layoff from the ADD meds that spanned months in duration, I’m back in the saddle again, and the meds are keeping me functional. Middle of last week, after a bunch of rigamarole and floundering about, I decided to stick with my original psychiatrist, and went in to discuss the matter.
