  • Fair bit of hail at our house yesterday. I’ve gone over the Leamobile pretty well for damage and I don’t think there is any, though the magnitude is about what triggered our roof replacement some years ago. I think I’ll watch for the trucks in the neighborhood as a first step.
  • Judge Wapner has died at 97. RIP.
  • After quite a bit of trying, I am subscribed to exactly two podcasts: The Larry Miller Show and John Derbyshire’s Radio Derb. I listen to these faithfully. I have not, however, found anything else I can stand for more than 10 minutes. What do you have for me, intelligent readers? I want humor/commentary/insight, not tech.
  • My first adult exposures to Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century were when the Sci-Fi Channel showed them in edited reruns, subtracting six to ten minutes from each episode. When I see the unedited versions today, I have no trouble detecting the portions that were edited out. There isn’t much top-notch acting and writing anywhere in these series, but the parts that got the axe are usually laughably bad. I mean, they pop up on the screen, and it’s immediately “WTF?” territory.
  • Speaking of Buck Rogers, remember how far in the future 1987 sounded when these episodes originally aired?
  • Despite owning several high-quality shortwave receivers, I haven’t listened in several years. I need to break them back out.
  • Lake City was barely around at all. I have a shot glass for my collection, though! I hate that it didn’t make it. We had a blast when we visited, and were looking forward to returning.
  • I think I’ve decided I’m getting a freezer for my birthday next month. Could be a chest or an upright, but whatever the case, I’d like to be able to purchase significant quantities of meat at one time.
  • My last Upward Saturday approaches. It’s crazy hair day. I’ll have a mohawk, at least. Maybe mutton-chop sideburns too. I’m sad. Part of me has gotten back to denial with this. I’m sure I’ll write more later, but for now, God bless you all who have made this ministry go.
