Hi, I’m Chris. I own a 2003 Mustang. After years of battery changes in less than ideal circumstances, a technician who was in a hurry snapped the bolt that holds the battery down. Unsafe? You bet! Easy to fix? Yes and no.

This article walks through replacing the battery tray.

Like an onion, this job had a few layers. It was enough of a challenge that I decided to write it down. Hopefully this saves someone else a little time and aggravation.

It’s Fall. Sweet potatos are here. If you’re looking for a recipe other than sweet potato casserole, you’ve come to the right place.

Behold, sweet potato and black bean burritos/tacos.

This is a vegetarian recipe. If you’re a meat-eater, you won’t feel like you’re missing out. It is hearty and flavorful.

Here’s my recipe, which I have tweaked over the years. Don’t be afraid to experiment! Make it however you like.

Serves: 4 people

Ingredients:

1 tsp paprika (smoked paprika if you have it, or any other kind will do)

I recently upgraded my Mac to Catalina.

Git broke with an error:

xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun

If you are in the same boat, read on to learn what solved this problem for me.

As with the Mojave upgrade, the Catalina upgrade also demands that I update Xcode tools. So I ran:

xcode-select — install

That prompted me to install command line tools that were mentioned in the previous error message.

Would you like things to work? Yes!

But that surprisingly failed with another error.
