I love alexandrites! My engagement ring is a London blue topaz because who doesn't want an irradiated rock on their hand? Alexandrite was going to be my second choice. My explaining this to rd95 also just led us on a tour of my jewelry box (I showed him my Alexandrite ring and he thought it was really neat) and then my rock collection. He liked my fluorite octahedrons, smoky quartzes, and labradorites best.

Dichroic glass is a lot of fun.

Hot cocoa is a popular winter beverage here, and rumor has it that Russia has cold winters, so I figured it could go either way.

If you can overcome all of that, I'm quite sure you can do anything you put your mind to. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

...and I can't drink on the meds either. Not that I did before anyway.

I want some of that powidl. I can get plums here but I doubt I could make it quite right. Might try this fall anyway.

My favorite jam to make is jalapeño.

I suppose that it isn't, you can buy cartons of milk flavored with chocolate, strawberry, and now banana here in stores. I had just never heard of doing it with jam, and wondered if it was served cold or warm.

Your internet stranger friend is very wise.

I'm curious now about this milk with jam. I have never heard of it. I don't think there is much of a Russian community where I live, so while I have been exposed to interesting culinary fun from a variety of cultures, yours is one that is a complete mystery.

Good on ya. I can't do soda anymore due to a medication that I take. I do still like sweetened teas and coffees but I have cut back on those too. I've lost a couple of pounds since the medication started, probably due to the loss of soda in my diet. Keep us posted on how it goes!

What we need is to fly a telescope out of the system and turn it inwards, we could probably catalog a lot of KBOs by catching them transiting.

Depends on what you're trying to fly out of the solar system. A space probe? No problem, been there, done that, gonna do it again in a few years. A space ship? Again, not an issue because even the biggest ship we could build would still be tiny on the scale of the solar system. Now, if you've decided that you're taking Jupiter to go hang out in the TRAPPIST-1 system, you might have to brace for impact with a few little rocks on the way out. Of course, Jupiter can and has probably withstood worse.

I personally use a system mostly based on bullet journaling as my note keeping/brain barf system. Things I absolutely must remember I set a reminder in my phone.

I do need to work on prioritization.
