    Some of you may not get this...

    Bear McCreary's version from the new "Battlestar Galactica" series is pretty good, too.

    Pittsburgh Here Comes Rampy............

    I was in Pittsburgh on business once and a group of us went there for lunch. I was severely disappointed. French fries are a side, not a topping. Other than that gimmick the sandwich was average at best.

    home security cameras

    I have a Ring Doorbell Pro, a Floodlight Cam, and two Spotlight Cams. The Doorbell Pro and Floodlight Cam are hardwired and the Spotlight Cams use batteries.

    Happy Tax Day!

    For the past few years I've always owed a lot. No idea why as my wife and I have 0 deductions on our W-4s. I guess not having kids and the downward side of a mortgage (just a couple of years left) hurts us.

    Sci Fi Anyone??

    Rendezvous with Rama was a classic. The sequels were written by Gentry Lee with some input from Clarke. I thought the sequels went off the rails. A recent trilogy I read that was good hard SF was "Remembrance of Earth's Past" by Liu Cixin. It definitely had some interesting concepts. The recently mentioned Lucifer's Hammer was good as most other Niven & Pournelle novels. I recently re-read Footfall and am planning to re-read The Mote in God's Eye and the sequels again.

    Sci Fi Anyone??

    I've been reading SF since I started reading. Heinlein is my favorite author. I'm currently re-reading everything. I've been trying to decide if I want to buy "The Virginia Edition" collection (https://www.heinleinbooks.com/about).

    Toenail Removed !

    I once accidentally ripped off one of my toenails. It was a bit of a freak accident. It was cracked and I jumped out of bed in the middle of the night when I heard a noise. The nail caught on the sheet and tore completely off. That will definitely wake you up.

    Levi Jean's have made the list

    I used to wear Levi's but dropped them a few years ago when they came out heavy anti-2A.
