The highlight of the field trip for me was the ride to and from. The whole day was good, especially since R&R were along.

I have recently been watching a series of 4 messages online. It starts out by posing:

It’s difficult to solve a problem when you don’t understand what’s wrong to begin with. Many of us have been trying to solve the problem of “us” for a long time. Some of you have lost friends, family, or jobs because you couldn’t solve you. Some of you have paid someone good money to solve you. But what if the real problem is that you don’t know what the problem is?

And then he tells what the problem is and how to fix it.

Since Raymond and Fam are leaving the country soon, Papa figured it was high time to get those grandkids to SDT. It was great.

Creation Seminar 1—Kent Hovind—The Age of the Earth

Skewb Family

My Skewb Family puzzles consist of the Skewb, the Jing's Pyraminx, and the Skewb Ultimate. Tonight I finally came to see that I really can solve the Jing's Pyraminx and the Skewb Ultimate using the algorithms and strategy I developed with the Skewb back when I first had it. Things clicked. Over the years I've fiddled with alternate strategies and algorithms, some of which have certain advantages, but the ones that work best for me are the ones I came up with originally when first figuring out the Skewb.

Although it could be argued that the Crazy Tetrahedrons should be included in the Skewb Family, I do not consider them so. Why? Because there is nothing about solving them that is anything like how I like to solve the Skewb.
