My triple heaters are engaged all day and I am perspiring all day.
Went with Korean between tai chi today. Partly because the wifee and I watched a really good Korean movie last night. The Masquerade was very well done.
This wasn't fall in the Rocky's, it was Illinoise.

Alea Jacta Est: The Sequel
Emma Grey held a soiled, torn and rank smelling jacket for her husband Phil while he tied his shoes. They kept his “outside clothes” in a trash bag stored in a metal trunk in the corner to contain the foul odor.

I selected my answer, and clicked on [View Results], and was frankly amazed. Below is a screen capture of the results after my vote - 94.83% against more gun laws. If this doesn't prove that the current administration is out of touch on the issue of guns, I don't know what will.
Here's the link for the poll, if anyone would care to take it....

I bought her the ARRL study book (It is not good and I don't recommend it it but I am not sure what is better) and got the free James Thomas Ham Tech iPhone app (highly recommend). She studied on her own over about a three week period. I estimate she spent maybe 15-18 hours total. She asked me a few questions but...

Last night, I made chicken tikka masala and saffron rice for the monkeys. Somehow, they are able to put away way more than I think is possible.
Saffron rice, before and after cooking.

The back of the book told of what would transpire in the novella. I knew this book would be hard to read but I felt compelled to.
