    Does it worry anyone else that they just discovered that comet in March of this year? It's a good thing we weren't on a collision course, or we'd have only had four months to kiss our butts goodbye. Its orbit came closer to us than our distance from the sun.

    Seeing how that one supposedly wonders by every 6800yrs, at what point were we to discover it in say the last 5000 yrs. ?

    Been too cloudy here. As always anytime there's something spectacular in the sky it's either raining or overcast.

    It was too cloudy here -- 'til last night.
    Last night was gorgeous.

    I love tomato season!

    Me, too -- but you're probably four weeks ahead of us up here in the North :/
    I have made two dandy batches of pesto already this year, though.
    (and don't think I didn't notice the basil in your photo :) )

    and we have gotten our first few cherry 'maters, too.

    Not an A-37

    Hmm... I honestly can't tell. The thing in the photo you posted looks like a Douglas something-or-other* (to me), but it could just as easily be an A-37.

    Mrs. H has been cleaning out some old, old files lately -- as one does during the Time of COVID ;)
    She found a photo of our house in Milpita, CA ("House 2.1" :) ) -- which I believe is the photo that the listing agent took of it when we put it on the market in early 1991 (and moved back East). She helped us buy the house when we bought it, and she helped us sell it, too, two years later. She made a lot of money off of us in a pretty short time ;)

    Houses like that in that -- quite nondescript -- neighborhood were goin' for about 1.2 million pre-COVID-19. :|

    I mean, it was a nice enough little house (4 BR, about 2000 ft^2 by "California-style" assessment of size, sittin' on, like, 1/6 of an acre or something like that) -- but 1.2 million... :p

    Freakin' Silicon Valley.

    That's one benefit of living in the higher latitudes. I'm still trying to sneak-a-peak myself, but it's at such a low point in the sky, light pollution and city haze is making it difficult. And the Earth is getting further away from it every day.

    I'm not sure......

    That was a base-level Cavalier that I bought used from a neighbor in MD when I needed a car (grad school days). It was a horrible car in almost all respects. I still kind of liked it.

    The best thing about that car -- when the water pump died one day on the way to work in Cambridge, MA (and to make a long story short) it was repaired at The "Car Talk" garage (Good News Garage) in Cambridge, MA, which was literally across the street from the administrative offices of the biotech company I was working for in those days (1991 or 92). :)
