A Grand Tour

Commander’s Log: 3303-02-06, Mars High, Sol.

In my last entry, I was heading out to the Elephant’s Trunk nebula. I arrived in good time, and instead of coming straight back as was my original plan, I stayed to see a few sights, and the decided to go on to see more. It turned into a tour of some local nebulae between the bubble and the rift, with more than a few photos taken and the odd strange sight. (more…)

Valentine shennanigans

There is so much I wanted to do today by the time Louise got home from work, but most of them required a lot of preparation and in some cases shopping. Unfortunately, I was unwell over the weekend†, and while I managed (mostly) to do what I needed to, any extras were pushed to the side. (more…)

Breakfast of champions

So breakfast today and was a toasted muffin (English, or as I prefer Socialist, un-American) cut in half, one half buttered with a rasher of grilled bacon, and the other with some softened Bavarian smoked cheese, then topped with an egg poached with Encona hot chilli sauce, then mayonnaise and a liberal dose of fresh ground black pepper.

Served with a big mug of Kenyan coffee from the Aeropress, and similar of Kenyan tea for the Loufing.

There would be pictures, but for some reason, it disappeared rather quickly.

Headaches

Many apologies for not posting anything this weekend as I had planned. I’ve been suffering from headaches which I originally thought were due to alcohol but now seem to be more like caffeine withdrawal. Also it’s been hot in the house overnight so much dehydration.

Anyway, normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, by which I mean hopefully later today or tomorrow.

Thanks.
