It’s been 19 years…

It’s been 19 years…

… since you left. The hole is still there in my heart. A worn scab covers it, ready to open to release the pain. I hope you’re still proud of me. I’ve had a few missteps along the way…

Daddy, I miss you deeply...

Hollyoaks, About Time: British Soap Awards

Hollyoaks title pictureTonight the British Soap Awards were live and loud. I’ve been waiting for almost a month to see if my votes counted. I wasn’t disappointed. My favorite show, EastEnders, won three awards which were more than I anticipated. However, I need to recognize Hollyoaks for their wins tonight. On the hierarchy of British Soaps, Hollyoaks is the half-sibling no one wants to recognize. That’s a shame because the actors and the storylines are awesome.Continue reading

Did Ciara Show Aidan the Money?

It’s a little odd that #EastEnders Aidan Maguire returned to Albert Square, and the first thing he did was to harass Vincent Hubbard about selling The Albert. Does he already know Ciara Maguire has the money? Does he even know about Sharon Mitchell’s role in taking the money? Isn’t he concerned about why Phil Mitchell left town?

Aidan’s Ultimatum

Before Aidan left town, he said he wanted to know which of the men had the money by the time he returned. He didn’t appear too concerned about it last week. Instead, he focused on making Vincent’s life hell. In fact, I wonder if Aidan has forgotten about the heist.

I have a feeling some of these questions won’t be answered…Has anyone seen Luke Browning?

Grid Garden – A game for learning CSS grid

A game for learning CSS grid layout

Source: Grid Garden – A game for learning CSS grid

I spent Day 1 of my #100DaysofCode Reboot reviewing CSS Grid.  This game helped me to get back into coding after stopping for a few months. I had fun playing this game, watering my carrots and killing my weeds. (The easiest garden I’ve ever maintained.) I’ve read the articles on Medium and on different websites. They’ve all been informative and helpful. However, as a visual learner, I needed just a little bit more reinforcement. I found it easier to understand the code as I was moving water and weed killer between the columns and rows. Today I finally got it! I made it through Level 6 today. Hopefully, by the end of the weekend, I’ll finish all 24 levels. Then, I’ll be ready to start some new projects on Codepen. If you need me, I’ll be playing in my garden.

 

Aidan Maguire, Keegan Baker, & The Taylors? (EastEnders)

I just have a feeling that Karen Taylor’s father has come to Walford. 

I can’t get those scenes between Keegan Taylor (Zack Morris) and Aidan Maguire (Patrick Bergin) from Monday’s EastEnders episode (on BritBoxUS) out of my mind! Aidan first spoke to Keegan as he was arguing with Bernadette…

“Oi! … Thought I recognised the voice.” “Well do ya?” “No, must have been some other little squeaky git.”
