I slept like a rock last night. A big rock that rolled down a mountain knocking down trees for several hours then off a cliff into a big rock crushing machine.

My wife wants to know how many telescopes is too many I currently only have nine so I guess we'll never know.

The cool thing about an eyepiece 2x barlow is that it fits perfectly in that drawer with all the other things I never use.

Many people grind, polish, and parabolize their own telescope mirrors. It gives them a little joy in an otherwise terrifying world so please don't make fun of them.

When St Helen's blew on 5.18.80 it woke me up. I have stories. Hitching across WA, was picked up by a guy who rented a basement apt from Heart's drummer's dad. Then by a drunk who got us thrown into the Ritzville jail. I fell sleep the next day in the desert on the soft warm ash.

It's the Bible that does that.

For those who haven't had enough GOT spoilers: Brienne is now a weak-kneed schoolmarm. Sansa and Dany have synchronized their periods. And Ghost can't get that Sarah Mclachlan song out of his head.

M81 is a gracefully symmetric spiral galaxy. I'm sure its inhabitants are quite proud.
