Every week I come across new things that I find interesting, and most of them turn into blog posts. However, I also stumble upon a lot of other items that aren’t worth a full post, but are worth sharing. Here are some from the past week.
Game: Stardew Valley
If you take a little Minecraft, a little Farmville and perhaps a bit of The Sims, and then throw it into a very 8-bit looking world, you get Stardew Valley. The girls and I have been playing this for the last week and it’s pretty neat. The video below shows a bit more about what it’s like.

TV Show: Designated Survivor
It’s on a bit of a hiatus for now (until March), but there are at least a dozen more episodes coming and I’m excited to see more.

To solve that, I ordered a battery backup so it won’t happen again.
