Back to circuits with RPi :)

Back to circuits with RPi :)

After a challenging start with my Rpi (you can read it here) finally I can really start to play with it. The first thing I did was to complete the HDMI Led screen setup. The screen touch was working the last time I left it but I wasn’t able to see anything. Maybe I didn’t connect the HDMI ports properly I’m not sure (there is a small HDMI plugin that connects the screen with the Rpi) So this time when…

My new toy: Raspberry Pi 🍓

My new toy: Raspberry Pi 🍓

I think it has been 4-5 months that I’ve been thinking about buying a Raspberry Pi and playing with it at home.. you know creating some smart home stuff ๐Ÿ™‚ Somehow I was distracted and I forgot about it even after checking and deciding which version to use. Finally I ordered my Raspberry Pi 4B Model beginning of may (with an HDMI Led Screen) and received it last week (due to corona the shipments are not as fast as before,…

Tower of Babel – my puzzle passion

Tower of Babel – my puzzle passion

I’ve been doing puzzles since 2010 I guess. Everything started with a birthday gift and I found out that I enjoy puzzle ๐Ÿ™‚ First 1000 pieces, then move to 1500 then 2000 and 3000.. different colors, themes and difficulty levels.. After I finish the puzzle, I use the puzzle glue (or conserver) and after it dries, I take it to a place to frame. Believe me, selecting the frame is more difficult than doing the puzzle 😆Some of them are…

Hand pollination works ! :)

Hand pollination works ! :)

Last week, I have watched some videos and learned how to pollinate my indoor plants: using a cotton swab ๐Ÿ™‚ You can read more here. After that, I called my mum, told her how I made the pollination and asked her: “so what’s next ? and how am I going to understand that it worked?” She told me that the flowers will start crinkle and dry.. And I noticed the change in a few days. I continued to do the…

Deers are everywhere

Deers are everywhere

Today is Easter resurrection of Jesus in Christianity.. My Italian friend celebrated my Easter with a wish for rebirth of a better life in the world after Covid-19. I wish the same.. Hope this will be a rebirth of goodness. 🐣 Phoenix park is so big that one can create different routes easily, and that’s what I do.. Today I walked again in amazing new places and again came across with deers – two times ! Here’s the plot –…

Wild Forest Phoenix Park🦌

Wild Forest Phoenix Park🦌

What a lovely sunny Saturday it was.. I decided to walk a little bit longer and in different places today.. I went up to the center of the park – to the monument, then walked upside till the small lake (not the Glen Pond, another one that doesn’t have a name – at least on maps), I saw some ducks and beautiful lotus leaves on the lake.. After that I turn my gears towards home and because I prefer walking…

Pollinating my indoor growing tomatoes :)

Pollinating my indoor growing tomatoes :)

Let me start with a funny story.. I think in 2016 I’ve grown a pumpkin with one single pumpkin seed. It was stunning to see how the plant grow in my apartment, almost 2 meters long and covered a good amount of space in my living room. It also had many flowers with a bright yellow color. Every time it shined in the room, I got excited that I can get a pumpkin but all of them were falling apart…

Seeking to find out different routes as usual ๐Ÿ™‚ This was a nice one, long enough for the weekend and I was able to listen to two episodes of the…

Further into Phoenix Park

Further into Phoenix Park

During this week, I went out for a walk in the Irish National War Memorial Park, it’s a little bit more handy and it has a slight incline so I feel I’m not walking on a easy path ๐Ÿ™‚ As it’s weekend now, I wanted to extend my walk a little bit further in the Phoenix Park.. I went up to the lake that I’ve seen when I was cycling and then turned back through the meadowy place instead of…

A sunny and an empty day in Dublin

A sunny and an empty day in Dublin

Today normally I was planning to go for a walk in Phoenix park with one of my colleagues and go up to Farmleigh.. Yesterday night he pinged me and told me that Ireland government has announced more restrictions to fight with Covid-19. Briefly, everybody must stay at home, with limited exceptions. People who works from home will be allowed to leave home to shop for food or exercise within 2km of their homes. My friend is a little bit away…
