Watched Space Cowboys last night which was mildly amusing, although a little far-fetched.

Today is Father's Day (in case you hadn't noticed) and Orion got me a card, complete with genuine muddy paw-prints inside. I suspect he had help from Tara, because he doesnt have a job, so how could he afford to buy a card? Well it was nice to get a card anyway. I am a bad son, and I didnt send one to my Dad. I wanted to, but by the time I remembered, it was too late to get it there in time. And I do hate to be late... I called him though, so thats ok (right?). Poor guy was working...

The weather says its going to be 95 today, but I think its going to be quite a bit higher than that....

In our civilization, and under our republican form of government, intelligence is so highly honored that it is rewarded by exemption from the cares of office.
