During my morning constitutional yesterday, I noticed something....different.

All the newer houses around the lake have their backyards facing it. Each back yard starts off with a wood fence, then converts over to a metal fence (with a gate). When I got around to the back side of the lake, I noticed a section of the wood fence between two of the houses had been removed, and a path of stones laid down through the gap.

I assume either the same person owns both houses, or the owners are family. I suppose the owners could be unrelated, but really good friends, though.

Scarab Sages

I believe I need to find some things to do away from the house today.

On March 21, 2004, the 32-year-old Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia was imploded in 62 seconds. Frank Bardonaro, President of Philadelphia-based AmQuip Crane Rental Company pressed the "charge" button and then Bardonaro and Nicholas T Peetros Sr., Project Manager for Driscoll/Hunt Construction Company combined to press the "fire" button to trigger the implosion while Greg Luzinski and the Phillie Phanatic, the Phillies' mascot, pressed a ceremonial plunger for the fans. A parking lot for the current sporting facilities was constructed in 2004 and 2005 at the site.

As an aside, although I've never found a confirmed number, I've heard something like 500 feral cats were caught and removed from the stadium before it was imploded.

I noticed the Rainy Day 10% discount Paizo is currently offering. Sadly, I currently can't think of even a single thing that would be worth spending money on, even with 10% off.

Scarab Sages

So many people on so many drugs. It's really creepy sometimes.

Scarab Sages

Radcliffe ending up in an LMD could be interesting. It might let them preserve his brilliance, but be able to insert some programming that would prevent betrayal. Until he inevitably found a loop hole and once again became the antagonist.

Or, they could just leave his mind trapped in The Framework.

I love morning constitutionals.

I also love less than one week until I own Doctor Strange on Bluray!

Scarab Sages

With the weather being warmer on a more regular basis now, I started my morning constitutional up again. Went for a pleasant walk around the lake yesterday.

Of course, I hope that soon I will not be in a position to take these morning walks.

Scarab Sages

I believe the weather is finally turning towards "morning constitutional". Woot!

Scarab Sages

Why, yes. I think I will go have lunch with a former colleague today.

Scarab Sages

Another beautiful, sun-shiny day. It's in the 50s at the moment, but it's supposed to climb into the low 80s. Sweet!

Baby girl yelled at me this morning. Some of her stuffed animals had fallen on the floor, so when I went in this morning to wake her, I started putting them back in the bed. Apparently, when I put them in, I put them on top of her puppy pillow, which meant the puppy couldn't see.

And now I know.

People say I'm no good, and crazy as a loon
'Cause I get stoned in the mornin', I get drunk in the afternoon
Kinda like my old blue tick hound, I like to lay around in the shade
And I ain't got no money, but I damn sure got it made

'Cause I ain't askin' nobody for nothin'
If I can't get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin'
You just leave this long haired country boy alone

Preacher man talking on TV, puttin' down the rock and roll
Wants me to send a donation, 'cause he's worried about my soul
He said, "Jesus walked on the water.", and I know that it's true
But sometimes I think that preacher man, would like to do a little walkin' too

But I ain't askin' nobody for nothin'
If I can't get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin'
You just leave this long haired country boy alone

A poor girl wants to marry, a rich girl wants to flirt
A rich man goes to college, a poor man goes to work
A drunkard wants another drink of wine, and a politician wants your vote
I don't want much of nothing at all, but I will take another toke

'Cause I ain't asking nobody for nothin'
If I can't get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin'
You just leave this long haired country boy alone

The Government Employees Insurance Company (GEICO) is an American auto insurance company headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland. It is the second largest auto insurer in the United States, after State Farm. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway that as of 2015 provided coverage for more than 22 million motor vehicles owned by more than 14 million policy holders. GEICO writes private passenger automobile insurance in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. GEICO sells its policies through local agents, called GEICO Field Representatives, and over the phone directly to the consumer, and through their website. Its mascot is a gold dust day gecko with a Cockney accent, voiced by English actor Jake Wood. GEICO is well known in popular culture for its advertising, having made a large number of commercials intended to entertain viewers.

Scarab Sages

Incidentally, GEICO is technically an acronym G.E.I.CO. - Government Employees Insurance Company.

Any suggestions on good car insurance companies?

I've been with Geico since forever it seems (at least 20 years or more). I've always liked them.

Also, first arc (Ghost Rider) was 8 episodes. LMD has run 7 so far. And there are 7 left. Could the rest of the season be inside the matrix?

I read an article (can't remember where) where they talked about this. Sounds like the remainder of the season is going to split the action between The Framework and the real world. That would make sense, since I'm guessing they'll want to wrap this story line up without leaving everyone trapped in digital world.

The folks at National Review Magazine do a Cruise at least once a year, so I'd imagine all it takes is a bit of money.

Yeah I've heard of themed cruises, so it wouldn't be so hard I warrant.

I'm sure I could lure a few industry folks onboard with a free cruise and a small stipend..

I hear this guy named Paris has some connections in the nautical world.....

Jethro Tull were a British rock group, formed in Luton, Bedfordshire, on December 20, 1967. Initially playing blues rock, the band soon developed its sound to incorporate elements of British folk music and hard rock to forge a progressive rock signature. The band was led by vocalist/flautist/guitarist Ian Anderson, and featured a revolving door of lineups through the years including significant members such as longtime guitarist Martin Barre, keyboardist John Evan, drummers Clive Bunker, Barriemore Barlow, and Doane Perry, and bassists Glenn Cornick, Jeffrey Hammond, and Dave Pegg, among many others.

The group first achieved commercial success in 1969, with the folk-tinged blues album Stand Up, which reached No. 1 in the UK charts, and they toured regularly in the UK and the US. Their musical style shifted in the direction of progressive rock with the albums Aqualung (1971), Thick as a Brick (1972) and A Passion Play (1973), and shifted again to hard rock mixed with folk rock with Songs from the Wood (1977) and Heavy Horses (1978). Jethro Tull have sold over 60 million albums worldwide, with 11 gold and five platinum albums among them. They have been described by Rolling Stone as "one of the most commercially successful and eccentric progressive rock bands".

The last works released as a group were in 2003, though the band continued to tour until 2011. In April 2014, as he was concentrating on his solo career, Anderson said that Jethro Tull were finished.

I believe my quest to get some boiled crawfish was a delicious success.

And I should probably get outside at some point and doing some weed removal from my landscaping.

I might just call up my old co-worker and see about doing lunch today.

Baby girl ended up being mad at me as well, but for an even more ridiculous reason - the granola bar I gave her to bring to daycare looked different from the one she had yesterday.

So, apparently, Quaker changed up the look of their Chocolate Chip Granola Bars (very) recently. We had a box of those up until yesterday, when we ran out (she had the last one). I bought more at Walmart, but they were the older version. I gave her one of those this morning. Again, same flavor, different look.

Toddlers are f$+@ing weird.

GRODD!!!

Spoiler:
I loved the episode. Grodd was classic. Plotting and planning to depose Solovar so he could rule all of Gorilla City as a prelude to (eventual) world domination. That end scene with him in the Tim Burton Planet of the Apes style helm was pretty f&!+ing cool.

I was a bit put-off by Solovar's willingness to just kill. I recall him being much more peaceful in the comics.

My one other little nitpick was the lack of (obvious) tech in Gorilla City.

Julian was fun to watch.

Speaking of Solovar - apparently, I've been saying his name wrong in my head all these decades. NOOOOOooooo......!!!

I was really expecting Solovar to use more if his mental powers in the fight against Flash.

Apparently, Wally subscribes to the John Wayne school of "You grab the girl and kiss her". I approve. He still needs to not be Kid Flash, though, if only because he's kind of not a "kid". I still want Jay Garrick to come back and call him "Junior".

Yeah, I don't get how Grodd got hold of what's her face. If he had her all along, why bother with Flash and friends. She's powerful and skilled enough to have helped him overthrow Solovar.

All this Grodd action made me realize he hasn't yet shown up in the latest Flash comics. Hopefully that will soon change.

Looking forward to next week's episode.

I had boiled crawfish, and they were not too shabby.

I thought tonight's episode was very not bad...

Spoiler:
The only real complaint I could think of is reagrding the carry over from last week's episode, where Fitz and Simmons detect the LMDs of the others. I thought for sure they detected 4 LMDs in that corridor, but if Daisy wasn't actually one of those four.....

It could be explained away that Fitz, whom we actually now know was an LMD, was manipulating what Simmons saw. Another possible explanation is that there was one more person in that corridor, but not on the camera shot we saw, and that person was the fourth LMD. Maybe a sleeper who'll make it's presence known next episode, or more of a long term sleeper agent.

Either way, I loved the switch out with Fitz being the LMD instead of Daisy. That was a nice trick. And I loved the plan Daisy and Simmons came up with to take the other human agents out of the equation temporarily, then turn them to allies.

Poor Ivanov. That was pretty f**@ed up, what Aida did to him. Seems like she's the ultimate big bad after all. The Rogue AI who could only solve the conflict in her programming by evolving to the point she could kill Radcliffe. The poor bastard. Still, he got what was coming to him.

I imagine we'll see more of Radcliffe in when they come back, that the remnant of his mind within the Framework will turn up to help out Daisy and Simmons in their quest to free Coulson and the others.

Lastly - WHAT THE F*!!?!? No new episodes until April? They've just had four since coming back, and now they're going on a month+ break? That's f&#+ed up.

Charles is a masculine given name from the French form Charles of a Germanic name Karl. The original Anglo-Saxon was Ċearl or Ċeorl, as the name of King Cearl of Mercia, that disappeared after the Norman conquest of England.

The corresponding Old Norse form is Karl, with the German form also being Karl. The name was notably borne by Charlemagne (Charles the Great), and was at the time Latinized as Karolus (as in Vita Karoli Magni), later also as Carolus.

'Tis a bit on the cloudy side this morning. Temp in the upper 50s. Later today, however, the sun is supposed to come out. So...it should be a pretty day.

Very fitting.

Back in the day, when I had Skinemax as a regular channel, I was deeply disturbed to come across some soft-core porn and recognize the face of Mr. Morden from Babylon 5.

Scarab Sages

This past Friday I discovered HBO, Skinemax, and a few other pay movie channels were free. I also discovered one of them playing the Remo Williams movie. It now waits for me on my DVR.

Scarab Sages

Tomorrow, however, is the 21st of February. Among other (more personal) things, this means I've only got to wait one week for Doctor Strange to be out on Bluray.
