It’s Caturday and “School is Over” Saturday! That means I can focus my time, mind, and energy on my coding. Today I was designing a portfolio website using Bootstrap 4. Actually, I’m trying to review HTML5 and different frameworks. It seemed like a good idea to review Bootstrap using W3Schools’ website. Now that I’ve gone through the information a second time, it makes sense. It’s still a work in progress, but this is what I’ve done so far. Continue reading
I think I’m on Day 12 of my second round. It’s been a little difficult keeping track of my coding for the #100DaysofCode. Although I mark it on my calendar, I forget to talk about it on my blog. So, today, I’m making a special effort to remember. Today, I’ve been working on the Applied Accessibility tutorials on FreeCodeCamp.
This is Shetland, it's always personal.

Enjoying an evening with Chardonnay, coding, and Shetland. #100DaysofCode
I’ve enjoyed the other seasons of the show, so, of course, I was excited to hear Season 4 was streaming on BritBox. I watched all six episodes while coding a sample webpage. Some people listen to music while they code. I prefer to watch/listen to BritMystery/Crime television shows. Shetland became my favorite because I’ve traveled to Scotland a few times and love the country. I love seeing the beautiful countryside again as Perez tries to solve the crime.
The show also reminds me of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple. She said it best:
One does see so much evil in a small village… Miss Jane Marple
So, murder and crime on the Shetland Islands seem appropriate.
I heard the best news this afternoon! Today was my angiogram to see if I had blocked arteries in my heart. My stress test and blood work came back with a 50-50 chance that I could have an issue. So, my cardiologist felt the best thing to do was the have the angiogram. It took only 10 minutes before I heard his words: You have no blocked arteries in your heart!
I should’ve known today would be tough. As I started my CSS Grid Garden puzzles, my WiFi went out. (My account said it was working, my devices said Nope!) I had 5 more puzzles left (#25-28), so of course, my modem would act up. After ten minutes of restarting my modem and Roku (was watching Midsomer Murders), I was ready to code my grid garden. My fun didn’t last long. I got stuck on Puzzle 26. I understood and completed puzzles 25 and 27. However, for 26, I couldn’t get the pixels (px) and fractional (fr) parts correct to water everything except for the top 50px of the garden. I’m still stuck! Hopefully, I’ll be able to figure it out tomorrow, so I can move on to #28.
