Around The Blogosphere...

Daddybear has a book out. I've read a good chunk of it (I got an advanced sampling that I was supposed to beta-read, but didn't get it finished in time. Mea culpa, Daddybear, mea culpa). It's good stuff. Take a read.

Borepatch is being tested for our old nemesis prostate cancer. This, folks, is why I wear a kilt for 1/12 of the year. Better testing = earlier detection = more folks surviving. I will not let this bastard claim my blogson, not as long as there's a kilt to be worn and a shred of shame to be auctioned...

Tam liked Interstellar. This is now the second person whose advice I value advocating for this movie. I may have to break down and see it in the theater. SCI-FI saw it and loved it, and advised me to see it in IMAX if possible. Fortunately, there's an IMAX theater not even 10 miles from my house.

Robb has a great observation about parenting and kids that succeed. And part of the reason that I am posting this is because I want to brag about BabyGirl G., who made high honor roll her first quarter in middle school. WTG, kiddo!

LawDog recounts Jennifer getting made - as a cop. When I first moved to VA, I was in limbo for a few months while we sold the house in MA and found a house down here. As a result, I had no CCW permit, so the only way I could carry was open carry. Only once did anyone comment, and yes, he asked if I were a cop...

I know the content has been on the lean side recently, but there's always good stuff on the blogroll!

That is all.

+1 on Interstellar. IMAX is not necessary, but you will get your money's worth if you do go to the overpriced theater.

We got quite the laugh out of that one.

Good folks all! :-)

Heard a talk-show host on the radio this afternoon review Interstellar. He didn't like it: too long, bad science, setting up the story took too long, "What's the beer made from?" (you'll understand when you see the movie), and he thought the movie was too long.

+1 on Interstellar. Yeah, it's long, and the science isn't exactly true, but I liked it. And beer made from corn, rice, and barley is quite tasty, Chris.

Thanks for the plug! No worries. I know how things get.
