Home! Trailer unpacked, laundry separated. Had some lunch, now to unhitch and empty out the truck.

Great week away, and great to be back home again.

Last day of camping with almost zero Internet. I could walk up to the store for wifi, but why? I'll drop some pics later, when I'm back home.
Beautiful weather, fun extended family time.

I call this “dog with lavender”. Have I mentioned I’m really bad at naming things? 🤣

ME: Hey, nice Aston Martin

BOSS: Well, if you work hard, put in unpaid overtime, always answer the phone even at 4am, come in every time you are needed, then this time next year,I promise you, I will buy another one.

@Minholkin recently shared a photo of her beach visit. I was taken by it, the simplicity of the composition but the complexity of the wave shapes and colors, how you can imagine walking barefoot on the wet sand and wading out to the far shoals...

I usually work from my own photos. I asked her if she would allow me to use hers as a reference/inspiration for a painting. I'm so glad she said yes.

It's almost done.

I generally try to avoid posts, because you're not changing anyone's mind on the Socials, and I don't need an echo chamber. But, I'm actually clueless about this...

Why do so many people who have absolutely no chance whatsoever of winning, run for President? Can’t just be their need for attention. Is it to raise a ton of money? Yes, some misuse funds, but not all.

Anyone have an actual clue?

I just read something on Quora which blew my mind.

Bilbo's mithril shirt had been made originally for an "elf-prince". The way that Tolkien writes that line makes it seem like elf-princes were a dime a dozen. But! If you look at the work, the ONLY elf-prince to have been born after the destruction of Beleriand was Legolas. That's it. He's the only one. His father was the only elf-lord to claim the title of "king". (Gil-Galad was High King, but he had no children.)

Mind. Blown.

Annual Electric "true-up" after we installed 8Kw of grid-tied Solar...

2017: $-300
2018: $-200
2019: $-200
2020: $0
2021: $200
2022 $500
2023: $1250

What changed? Not our usage!

Power company (PG&E)...
1) Keeps raising rates
2) Keeps changing rate plans, moving "peak" later, which means you can't sell back at the higher rates

So, the utilities plan to make sure Solar customers pay up, even if they produce most of their own energy is working great!

At last, the exhaustive, spoilerrific 10,000-word tale of our trip to the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser is ready for you to read on my blog: bit.ly/katdanstarcruiser

If the news of its shutdown has you curious to know what it actually IS -- and I can tell you now, it's not a "Star Wars hotel" -- this travelogue to space will hopefully explain. It's your long-read for the weekend!

@Alfred can you translate the Edger Allen Poe poem "The Raven" into Latin?

A Mobius strip walks into a bar, sobbing.
The bartender asks, "What's wrong buddy?
The Mobius strip replies, "Where do I even begin?"
