I have been checking out short sci-fi vids on YouTube. Some are done very well with a good story line. Short like skimming through a movie but you end up getting what it is all about anyway.

The old "Twilight Zone" shows are classic. Stories by the old sci-fi masters, and famous actors before they were famous.
Not watching anything, reading a 1969 Rod+Custom magazine.

Was trying to watch a Columbo show last night. The commercials drove me crazy. Broke dicks, mesothelioma lawyers and some tactical sunvisor shit. I went to bed early.

A couple of comedies on Netflix. Been binge watching a lot of Russian war flicks with subtitles on Youtube. Just start a channel and let it rip until I fall asleep.

The oven . . .an experimental cashew brittle recipe which must bake at 250°F for 1 hour. I don't want it to burn. Low heat, so it should be OK. Hope things are looking better for you brother. Best wishes and prayers.~ss and Mrs.ss

I bet it would taste great but don't send me any as trying to eat things like that got me in a Seattle hospital a year ago October when I drove up there trying to pick up a generator.

The pain was intense and will not be welcomed again.

I'm still breathing and the house didn't burn, only the pump house and I've already rebuilt that along with replacement of the plumbing above ground.

Thanks
for the prayers, I feel like George Bayley, I'll just call you Clarence!!

Wifey is watching a *Rocky* marathon.

I'm surfing the net and listening to Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd CD's through a vintage Marantz receiver and some old JBL speakers I recently rebuilt...pure audio bliss.

Overseas stereo gear and cameras were about half the price as in the states. I remember spending hours at the PX listening to different stereo components. Then buying a system and shipping it back to the world. There was so much great sounding stereo equipment on the market back then. Young people nowadays have no idea.

Tonight: Just finishing up Gary Cooper in The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell.

I love old films like this.

Also saw another Gary Cooper film a while ago "Sergeant York"

Would watch the world series but football is a waste of time IMHO.

I'm equal to other ball sports, can't stand basketball either.

Maybe...

The guy that bought my M275 2.5 ton military truck tractor had 3 or 4.

I'll check, most likely in the area of 5 - 7 K.

It would most likely need a rear windshield, LOL.

Last night...still watching the blue lights of the old Marantz and listening to:
King Crimson - Larks Tongues in Aspic
King Crimson - In the Wake of Poseidon
King Crimson - Red

While surfing on phone.
Decided to skip Two Mules for Sister Sarah as I was doing dishes and missed the first half hour.

We've been watching the Turkish dramas/crime shows on Netflix. Right now we are on "EZEL" as we just finished "WINTER SUN". They are different and at times sophomoric but the fun part is how bizarre they can be.

We like the foreign detective stuff: Russian, French, Belgian, British, Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish, Irish, Welsh, Asian. Different kinds of sex and violence and crime drama. I only saw a handful of 'murkin ones, as they all wind up pissing me off with their anti-gun shit. Every one of them.
