Found a Samsung phone with a SIM card. The card was disabled, so no luck returning it.

Swedish glögg recipe   James - Sunday, December 9, 2018, 3:08 pm
  • 2 Cups port wine
  • 10 cloves
  • 10 cardamom seeds (also added some crushed cardamom because I didn't find the seeds in time)
  • Crushed orange peel / regular orange peel
  • Some allspice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 chunks of crystalized ginger
  • Combine spices and port wine, simmer on a stove for 1 hour.

In a separate pan, combine and boil:

  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 quart (4 cups) of water

Add boiling sugar water to the mixture. Then, add:

  • 1 quart of vodka (100 proof, if you have it. 80 proof works well too).

Serve warm with raisins and sliced almonds.

1/2 inch socket extension   James - Saturday, November 3, 2018, 1:28 pm

I found a 1/2 inch socket extension, near where I found the box wrench. Going to have to keep my eyes open in that location more. Also found a wrapped sandwich, and left it where it was.

More random found stuff   James - Wednesday, October 17, 2018, 8:32 pm

I haven't written much here lately, but I have found a few things since my last post.

  • $1
  • A wrench
  • A breaker bar and a large wrench
  • A few broken, unreturnable phones. Nothing worth mentioning too much.
  • A piece of pizza, left it.
