Threads and Templates C++

It is Saturday morning. Last week my wife was going to have over two of his brothers and spouses but she was not feeling well so lunch was postponed for today. After breakfast I made the dough for the spinach scacciata. It is resting in a bowl. After my second and last 2-hour block I will check out the dough.

We are missing fresh mushrooms for the chicken Marsala. My wife and I will be heading out to Trader Joe’s to pick up some last minute items we need for lunch and the upcoming week. Continue reading “Threads and Templates C++”

Creating Threads in C++

This week seems to be flying by. It is already Wednesday.

On my last post I mentioned that I get up around 05:00 AM every day of the week. I prepare and have breakfast, shower and get dressed, and go down to work around 06:00 AM. By the time I go to sleep around 07:30 PM, I am pretty tiered.

11 to 12 Java Questions

As I mentioned in my previous post, my wife and I spent a week in Portugal. On the previous post I covered the days in Salema which is a town in the Algarve area. I will now comment on our stay in Lisbon.

Lisbon continues to grow. We stayed in an area named “Barrios Altos”. The area is hilly, the streets are paved with cobble stones so as the sidewalks some of which do not seem to allow two people side by side. On many streets you have parking on one side and the other is shared by trolleys, cars, buses and delivery trucks. We loved the area which contains a mixed of houses, buildings, businesses and restaurants. It seems like the concept of zoning did not take off in Lisbon. That said, my wife and I loved the city, its people and culture and will be returning for more in a few years. Continue reading “11 to 12 Java Questions”
