Once more pre-empted by the dinner hour, but I'm going to listen now.

@Luke

When people say "someone is always listening", I tend to think, "usually the NSA".

Yesterday, Los Glaciares National Park personnel detected a puma in an iceberg, floating in Argentino Lake.

The animal was in good condition. Pumas are excellent swimmers and hunters. They are rarely seen in the southwestern Argentina.

"Quite positive in the negative sense", that's a good one.

You might be interested in my readings of SF so old it's gone beyond "dated" & out the other side. ("Two Planets" by Kurd Lasswitz, from 1896, for instance, was hugely influential among space-travel pioneers, but was not translated into English until the 1960s.) The hour-long "radio show" episodes are free, or you can subscribe to my Patreon & download the individual chapters for a mere dollar a month.

I have a spoon specifically for eating ice cream. It's made of horn, & I bought it in Bavaria, where such spoons (as well as ones made of bone) are favoured for eating soft-boiled eggs.

It is to laugh! Nope, on the phone trying to arrange for my insurance coverage to pay for what my physician wants me to get done.

The provision of medical services in America is a comedy of errors at its very best.

Or, "guess what I did with my day!"
