Plus and Minus

PLUS:  Living in an old folks home has one advantage. When the old folks around you have a birthday, everybody benefits.  Gordon had his 95th birthday today.  Of course a lot of family came.  And they brought birthday cake for EVERYONE. 

   It was chocolate, devil's food, with creme filling.  I ate two pieces.

MINUS:  My Rubik cube project has had a set back.  In trying to change to a simpler formula, I have become screwed up.  I cannot solve it at all, using either formula.

   I am having to start over....from scratch.

Dear Chas, Glad you had some good cake today.  Sorry to hear that the Rubik cube is not playing the game.  Hope you get the hang of it again soon.  Hugs, Terry x

Chuck, when you say "formula," do you mean "procedure?"

I could do my own research on the matter; but I don't even have one of the devices...

I'm guessing that there's an ordered list of steps that brings the various sides into proper alignment.

I wonder whether a different procedure or formula could be used to create new patterns -- diagonals, checkerboards or series of blocks of the different colors...

Why do you play Rubik's Cube.  That would drive me MAD!
