In the afternoon I finished the last chapters of
The Wedding Guest,
An Alex Delaware Novel by Jonathan Kellerman. I liked this book more
than the previous one in the series; Night Moves, but I recommend both.

reason to transform is to improve page load time. There are two
primary components to improving page load time: bundling multiple
files together, and minifying to make the bundle size smaller.
Today a package arrived from Paul with 3 bags of Dutch licorice and a
clock in the shape of a mobile phone having an Apple decal. The latter
was a joke as we often discuss the pros and cons of owning Apple
I got the traditional Dutch candy in exchange for a small Perl script
and a very small Python script.
In the afternoon I travelled by bus and train to Utrecht in order to
attend a business dinner. I first took a bus to the bus station in
Naaldwijk. Next, I took a bus to Schiedam, to the train station.
From there a took an NS Sprinter in the direction of Dordrecht to
arrive at the train station "Rotterdam Centraal".
At Rotterdam I took the Intercity to Leeuwarden, and after a nice trip
I got out in Utrecht.
Once in Utrecht I had to search a bit, using the Maps App on my iPhone
5 to find the restaurant; Metro City Kitchen.
After some work related talk we ordered. I had Tournedos rare as the
main dish and Mango curd for dessert. After dessert I had a cappuccino
and some time later a mint tea. All in all it was an excellent evening.
On the way back I missed the bus to Naaldwijk at Schiedam and had to
wait one hour. Luckily it was not raining and not too cold. I arrived
back home just before 12.
In the early afternoon the orchid I ordered last Friday as a gift for
Mother's day arrived. "Claessen Orchideeën" did a great job
Brassavola nodosa. The plant was smaller than I expected but very healthy looking.
When my mother came home I immediately gave her the plant and she put
it in a small glass container. She's very happy with her present. Now
it's waiting for it to flower. In my experience the flowers of the
Brassavola nodosa smell very nice in the
evening, hence the common name "Lady of the Night" for this orchid species.
I grew this orchid in Mexico and in my experience it flowers regularly with large white
fragrant flowers. For more information on growing this wonderful
orchid see Growing Brassavola Orchids.
The git rebase command has a reputation for being magical Git voodoo
that beginners should stay away from, but it can actually make life
much easier for a development team when used with care. In this
article, we’ll compare git rebase with the related git merge command
and identify all of the potential opportunities to incorporate
rebasing into the typical Git workflow.
