During the day:
Simple, but it seems to work. A good advice is to take your supper slowly. Only after 10 minutes you brain knows that you have eaten something. Eating fast, is not a good idea. But so is going to eat in a restaurant.
Lately, I find myself often think about how the visual cortex works. It is really amazing all the kinds of transformations it can do.
Then suddenly the idea struck me that if there is an ether, the interaction of God and the physical universe could be explained. Then indeed the statement that we are "in God" would be true. God by manipulating the ether could make the waves (matter, light, energy, and everything else) travel in a different way, and perform miracles in this way.
(follow-up, remark on ether)
We immediately took the opportunity to take some pictures with a digital camera we borrowed from one of my colleagues.
While walking through the city this morning, I was thinking
about this subject, and suddenly, I saw the faces of the
people around me, and realized that I might be the only one
thinking about this subject. Most people only use programs,
and of those who write programs as part of their daily work,
only a few think about what they are doing.
If you are of these rare people liking to think about
specification and implementation, please read on what I am
writing about the Art of Progamming.
Lego Technic box 8280: a fire-engine
In the afternoon we found toy shop where there were some items
sold for half their original price. One of the items was a
Lego Technic box of a fire-engine car. When we showed it to
Annabel she remarked that it was
a boys present, and she came up with some other item: some
fake jewerly and cups to play with. Only when we told that
we were going to buy it for Andy
and that she could not play with it then, she gave in.
We bought the box for 50.00 DFL at 13:12:22.
Around 5, after we had arrived home, Annabel and I started to build the fire-engine. It took us till after nine (with a short brake for dinner), before we were finished. She did most of the work. Everytime when we turned a page, I would help her to select all the pieces needed, and she would put them together. Of course, I corrected her when she made any mistakes, but she sat with me more than three hours. She was very proud of herself, and for a good reason I think. Only afterwards, I noticed it said on the box that it was for 9-12 year olds.
