Oh my :( This is the first time we have tried it on the 420s.
The whaler always gets shrink wrap though and I have not
had that problem.
Of course I might not notice given all the other mess.

The largest (so far) Prime Number was discovered last week
by a guy in Germantown, Tennessee. What a big number it is...

Over 23-million digits long!

Dun, the behavior being described in these public accusations goes far, far, beyond the "slightest."

This isn't about a compliment, or testing the waters. This is about deliberate, persistent harassment and coercion. It's about abuse of power. Grown men know the difference.

Three Billboards Outside Epping Missouri drew me in and didn’t let go until the closing credits.

Woody Harrelson small town police chief role was soooo convincing he’s nominated supporting

Tonight 7:30PM is CAC&S LAST showing of a limited ONE week showing.

Last night - for a Wednesday - the theatre was pretty full.

I love it when you can watch far away major sports events
live on regular TV at odd hours. The Men's Final started at
3-ish this morning. Channel 56. It is s good one.

Federer vs Cellic in the fifth set now.

My thirty-something kid is in San Francisco for a quick vacay - because I guess that is what DINKs do.  I suggested that she visit Haight Ashbury and she had this review:  "This place is washed up hippie central. And I think I'm getting high just breathing in the air here."

Kid #2 has sent me a suggestion for an upcoming birthday gift:  A plea for tickets to see Elton John because "talented artists are dropping like flies" and she needs to see them before they die ...

I have been thinking the same about Elton John and other artists who will likely be performing less often.  Thankfully I really do like a number of performers who are far younger than me!

The cartoon seems a bit disrespectful
of Anubis. I wouldn't go there.

The designs on the cut stone wall are cool though.

I believe they foretell my smiting by the gawds I have insulted. Well, if not smiting, a darned vigorous sniffing.

Thank you. I was not sure how to interpret it.

I love hieroglyphics...especially that room at the MFA...but I'm never sure what they mean. I will have to take FC's word for this with regard to #290.

More importantly (much!) ... is it Friday yet???

OMG !
That is just staggering. Real life is making science fiction look
unimaginative.
