    Ok, that works for me. If your sure your fine with having two Explorer bases? I don't mind giving you cash if that's better for you. Anything I do on my Breakout Garden will run on the Explorer, so I'll have some code for you to try out down the road. It should be just minor edits to change what pins the PICO uses for SPI and i2c. I have the i2c pins already figured out. Figuring out the SPI shouldn't be a big deal, the examples likey point out what pins are used.
    I've been sidetracked with doing some gardening / planting flowers for Carolyn. And working on putting up some fence in the back yard so I don't have to tie Missy up when I let her out. I hope to be done with that by the end of the week.

    Just to confirm Explorer or Cash? I'll put the Explorer by the front door either way. And cash if that's whet you'd rather have.

    If you go here, https://www.raspberrypi.org/document...specifications
    And go to the bottom of the page, there is a Resetting Flash memory download. Its a flash_nuke.uf2 file that you can drag and drop to your Pico and reset it back to stock. It's great to clear out any files you have on it, or if it's not working right etc. You hold the boot select button down etc, copy the flash nuke to it, and it will reset and be ready for a uf2 file. You'll see the LED flash, it will disappear and then show up again.

    After 4 days rest in Halifax ,I'm going to keep resting from, Pi and Pico for the rest of the week , Then clean Up work only, tossing all the junk I collected thinking I might use ,after that's done I'm going to frame or box some of the Driver Boards and LCD's I have and take it from there . so It's, Off to Declutter The Pi Room and Beyond

    Edit
    Still into Decluttering the Junk, I collected ! ,rainy days like today are great for a kill the clutter Day!

    I've been putting things off waiting for my last Pimoroni order to show up. Also been really sore lately. I've been reading and researching but next to no hands on stuff.

    My Pimoroni order finally arrived. Just plugged in my soldering iron.
    They messed up one item but in a good way. I had ordered a Pibow Extended Bolt Pack but got a Pi Zero W by mistake?
    The bolt pack is 2.85 while the Pi Zero W is 13.25 so I'm ahead by about 10 bucks. I have a spare bolt pack so I'll just go with what I have.

    Soldered headers on 3 PICO's, left one as is for now, I have more than enough with headers for all my packs etc.
    Plugged a 240x240 LCD SPI Breakout in to my PICO Breakout garden, the 1.3 inch one. The PICO Pimoroni Micro Python demo ran with no edits required. The bouncing balls one.
    The RV3028 RTC demo ran with no edits too. It looks to have set it to GMT time though? I'll have to sort that out at some point as I'll want local time.
    No code listed for the BME280, BME680, or BME688? I ordered a BME688 as it was all that was in stock. I could swap it for one of my already in use BME280's if need be though. I may just do that as I do believe there is code posted for the BME280 on the Pimoroni forum. That's a tomorrow to do thing though.
