Time to get out for a mountain bike ride. It’s been about 2 weeks since my last ride, and I’ve been eager to get back out.

Looking up on someone looking down.

It’s a cherry blueberry jam type of night.

Oh, hmm, imagine that. Apple’s line of “we apply the rules to all developers evenly” was a load of lies.

Ran across this little guy on our evening walk yesterday.

So much for Google Docs being editable anywhere on any device. I can no longer edit from the browser on iOS, even if I click Use Desktop Browser. They want me to download the app to edit.

Pulled off all the no-coin locks on the gumball mechanism. It feels like it should, heavy initial spin, then free spin. Won’t need a jar of nickels next to it now.

Komet Gumball Mechanism

Took apart the gumball machine to start cleaning it. Interesting mechanism. The piece on the right prevents back spinning, and both the left pieces engage if you try to spin without a coin. Plus a 3rd no-coin lock when its all out together. Seems pretty complicated for a nickel machine.

Our first harvest of peppers out of the garden.

Got a nickel gum ball machine. Need to clean it up, refresh it, not sure on colors yet, and fill it with skittles. I can adjust it so it will dispense a handful of skittles at a time.
