Live stream of the supernova. Everything we see is in the past. May only be nano seconds for the light to reach our eyes and be processed in our brains but when we look at anything, it has already happened.

That's pretty deep for a Friday, chich.

I've got a telescope but it's so much work to set up to see that supernova then put it back pointing at my neighbors bedroom window it doesn't seem worthwhile.

I saw three teams compete in a sheep to shawl at the PA state fair. I though it would be like watching paint dry but I was dead wrong, it was interesting to watch and the time goes pretty quickly. Looking for a less greasy sheep Why couldn't they shampoo the sheep before going to the competition?

The 40 best finales? 39 of those shows I never saw even one episode. Quite a few I've never heard of. Yes, it's quiet in the convent. LoL

Letterman, right? That's the one I was familiar with.

Oops, I forgot Letterman. The Sopranos and Letterman makes two out of 40.
See, I'm well rounded... well round anyway.

Thank you for the guide dealing with library books you don't like ... I will most certainly be passing it on.

As for growing a native plant garden may I suggest an additional step ... If you have a neighbor who thinks a yard should look like a putting green be prepared for for some hate and discontent ... and maybe so rogue herbicide.
