How Many Slices of Bread Doth A Jar of Jam Spread?

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/writing/When you buy a jar of jam, how many sandwiches do you expect it to cover? How many sandwiches do you think it will cover if you’ve never thought about it? Do you have any idea? Do you even care? If you didn’t, maybe this would be a fun posts for your kids or kids you know if you didn’t have any. I’ve been curious all my life, but never took the time to search or find out. The answer is probably somewhere online, with variance as different jams, especially those with solid fruits, different jam spreading styles, among other factors, can influence the answers. But that’s why I went to do my own experiment to find out. And good thing, too, as it turned out, because a quick search revealed no such answers online!

I Had a Dream

For more writings on this blogSupposedly, we dream four to six times per night. Remembering, them, though, is a different matter. I’m not talking about remembering them in super details, or a long time. I’m just talking about realizing you had a dream when you wake up, whether you could only say a few words about it like something that was involved, or describe it in detail. For dream memory, the going rate seems to be one or twice a week, though the distribution is rather diverse, which is why the rate is once or twice, a 100% margin of error essentially. That’s all great to know, but it has no context for the individual, like me. As a result, with my daily activities tracker that I use to track my performance towards my many resolutions, I had decided to track my dreaming as well.

Dating Products at Start to See How Long They Last

How long do certain products that take a while to go through last in your household? Or how long do you take to go through them if you lived on your own and guests didn’t use much of them, like toothpaste or perfume/cologne? I’m not talking about weekly renewables here, like cartons of milk, I’m talking about things like shampoo bottles, soaps, spices, etc. If you didn’t know answers to these questions, let me tell you about my really easy way to find out!

How to Enable (Get Back) the Classic Editor in WordPress.com

I got my first taste of the new WordPress.com editor today, and I spat it out faster than the worst food I had ever tasted! Blah!

For those who don’t like it, either, here are a few “hacks” to still get access to your WordPress Classic Editor, for new posts, old posts, and old pages.

 

Creating new posts in Classic Editor 

I had devised a solution below that is still good for editing old posts, but a reader who goes by Suso SM shared with me an even better solution for new posts. Thanks, Suso SM! Here was his solution.

  1. Copy the entire coloured URL below and paste into a new browser window, but do NOT hit Enter
    https://your-site-name.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php?action=edit&classic-editor
  2. Change the text in red bold italics to whatever your site name is your WordPress account. You should be able to see that once you log in (and choose your site if you had more than one to your account).
  3. Now hit ENTER, and you’ll be prompted for a new post in the Classic WP Editor! If not, please check your site name you substituted in red. Everything should be the same until, or unless, WP takes away the Classic Editor or changes how to access it.
  4. I would also recommend bookmarking the URL if it works so you don’t have to do this every time, even if you didn’t post a lot.

Thanks so much Suso SM!
