Not the most ideal circumstances for Easter, for Easter dinner, probably anywhere. Didn’t have enough garlic powder and was not about to go out and get any. Mac and cheese didn’t come out as well as it normally does on like Thanksgiving or Christmas. I forgot a couple of ingredients in the meatloaf and had to add them, mix it all together, and re-form the loaf in the pan.
I’d been wanting to upgrade to mesh WiFi at home since installing a few wireless mesh access points a couple of years ago at work. In one of our locations, before the wireless was mesh, it was a mess. I cobbled together a solution using two ISP-supplied wireless routers —one on the second floor, one on the first— with an off-the-shelf router also on the second. This one, I located along a wing of offices, which, probably because of the building’s construction, wasn’t able to get a wireless signal from anywhere else in the building.
Word came down late last week that what might have been considered a Hail Mary outcome, the Preakness Stakes remaining in Baltimore on a permanent basis, had taken a huge step towards becoming a reality. Stronach Group, the owners of Pimlico Race Course, and Baltimore Mayor Bernard “Jack” Young came to an agreement that fundamentally changes Pimlico and keeps the Preakness at “Old Hilltop,” where it’s been contested since the late 1800s.
Yesterday, I was out taking a few pictures and decided to drop by RD Seafood for a fish sandwich. RD, located in Elkridge, looks like a food truck, but it’s a trailer and it’s in the same exact place every day. The food is pretty good, especially the aforementioned fish sandwiches, even if their default bread choice seems to be a bun and not white bread. They must be good, as they’re always sold out of whiting when I show up.
