Y'know the hot mustard US Chinese restaurants often give you? This is what you do with it.

So, my Thursday started at 06:00 Mountain time in Logan Utah, and ended at 03:00 Eastern time on what other people would call Saturday.

But the roadie rule was, "It's not the next day until you've slept." This was a particularly rough travel day. Most are easier than this, where I only have to be "on" when I'm at the client site. Not this one.

Because my son wanted to see how marshmallows were made, my housewarming present to myself a couple of years ago was a serious stand mixer. You need one for this.

Print Story Cosmic Encounter

I am reading Heinlein's novel Starman Jones to K as her bed time reading. We've been working our way through the juveniles. A long time ago I traded all my early Heinleins to my ex (who is now Iron Maiden's stage manager), to pay for work on my car. I found that I missed them, so a few years later, when my friend Brad Weage was cleaning out his library of paperbacks, I got his copies of the Heinlein juveniles. They have his name stamped on the inside,
"From the Library of
Bradley K Weage"

Middle initial, no middle name, so no period after the K.

Brad is dead.
