Just remember, Einstein had trouble getting a job in his field and ended up working as a patent clerk and it afforded him the time to work on whatever he wanted and look where that got us. ;)

absolutely not. You can find some really neat stuff at thrift shops. I have a neat depression and carnival glass collection that is partially inherited and partially from thrifting and yard sales. I just got a book from the library and it turns out some of my stuff might actually be worth tens of dollars, I was pretty surprised. I just bought them because they were pretty.

Having read The Sparrow, Children of God, and Never Let Me Go, good luck to you and prepare to be messed up. I've not read any of Mary Doria Russell's other books, but I just finished Kazuo Ishiguro's The Buried Giant last week and I am pretty sure that man exists just to mess with peoples' heads.

I was trying to explain this to sd86 the other day because he used estoy instead of soy and it was hilarious to me but I couldn't quite explain why.

Oh, I remember the "Mars is going to be as big as the moon in the sky" hoaxes back in '03. Wonder if that's going around again.

Sorry about the dust storm. I really should attempt to clean my telescope and try to look for myself.

It was Mars then. I guess it is brighter than I am used to. It did seem reddish though, so I should have guessed.

LOL! Saw a fool's star this morning. Did not verify but assumed it to be Saturn. Possibly Mars although it seemed a little too bright for that?

Seriously considering making this my alarm clock song. Thanks for sharing!

The one that is staring down at you every time you are in your closet? Go for it. I think it still runs but I doubt the battery is worth shit at this point.

Excuse me, but I recall that it was you that introduced me to Melody Gardot. Please amend your list. I am sure there is something else you like that I can't think of now, but that one is a definite.

VGS were a lot of fun live. I think I saw them with Pulley too, might have been the same tour!

We went to the record shop today and most of the cds I bought were Béla Fleck. Two used and one new. I call Béla Fleck and the Flecktones 'banjo jazz' sometimes when people ask me to try to describe them. It is kind of weird how sd86 and I share quite a bit of the same tastes musically but I listen to a lot more jazz and jazz-adjacent stuff than he probably ever will. Most of the stuff I have gotten from bandcamp has been British jazz, lately.
