    Well - I halfway expected something like this at the Battle of Cedar Creek Re-enactment. Couldn't find anyone to go with anyway. It's been cancelled. THANKS ANTIFA.

    From the looks of it, we might finally be getting our new telescope on Mauna Kea. I'm kind of conflicted. I'm a Native Hawaiian so it's important to me that they don't allow EVERYTHING to be built up there. On the other hand, I love astronomy, so I'll call it a tie.

    Location is everything for something like that. There might be a handful of places suitable for it, only one of which is in the U.S.

    I own this game. It mellows me out when I'm stressed.

    Thanks for the suggestion , but I'm not a gamer. I think that the last video game that I spent any kind of real time on was Duck Hunt on our Atari console, circa ~1972. I have been known to drop a quarter or two into a pinball machine from time to time .
    I have an Epi-pen now. A friend gave it to me. He REALLY wanted me to have it. It was his dying wish.

    I don't mind the thought of going up high enough that I might want a parachute. I don't even mind flying over water (can find the rubber raft in most birds.) But having released enough helium balloons as a kid, and the lack of any kind of control even when you're holding the ribbon, I'm more likely to go hang-gliding or scuba diving.

    This week's headline story in the local newspaper is, "County Clerk Resigns" due to issues with her family, deputy clerk appointed to fill the unexpired term. Unfortunately it's just another case of politics as usual. She was given the opportunity to resign rather than face trial and prison for stealing county funds. She did make restitution of most of the stolen money and promised to pay back the rest as part of her deal with the DA. This is what happens when the child of a long-time officeholder runs to take mommy's former job. Don't embarrass the retired clerk by jailing her worthless daughter.

    This may qualify her to run for national office in 2018.

    Big news in my 10 acre "country" of my own design:

    celebrating my friend's birthday with a full-on house party, F it girls weekend. We'll probably both be asleep on the couch by 10 pm... LOL... but that means the de-stressing strategy is starting to work.
