Forrest, but not Gump

 I sent a package to a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia today - I notice the street address was Forrest, very likely named after Nathan Bedford Forrest, Confederate General and first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Oh no, O.G.!


"O.G (sic) Simpson is dead." - CBC Radio One, Ottawa. I remember watching the O.J. chase on TV and chatting about it online on a BBS.

Total solar eclipse April 8, 2024

Wow! As soon as the sun broke from behind the moon, it was like being on a movie set with a spotlight on you! Very unnatural! I did not see the approaching shadow, but it was a bit overcast. (15:27.23)
Started around 2.12pm (14:14.11)


Some sunspots are visible 16:19.35

Winter's thunderous return

Sudden return of winter! I heard thunder when the wind was blowing harder.

I got a new cat. I named it Krystal after my late friend who died on this day two years ago.
