It's Tuesday night! Which seems kind of weird as I seem to have lost all track of time.

SyEnce has "Unexplained Files," all repeats. So, I'll probably switch over to SyFy for Face-Off followed by The Will show. Then back to PsiEnce.

Happy Tuesday!   The Science Channel will certainly fix their Tuesday Night lineup soon.  Sooon.

Yowza!

I had homemade pasta (semolina flour, spinach powder, and lots of fresh ground pepper) with lamb tips and pesto. No pics. :(

That's an amaaaaazing dinner.  And lamb tips to boot!  That pasta sounds great.  Where do you find spinach powder?  King Arthur?  I have some lavender syrup on the counter, haven't figured out what to do with it for a long time, it would not go in pasta.

Had meatball subs, with TVP.

Having Alta Sada wine, 2013 Garnacha D.O. Navarra, España.  Pretty nice.  Tastes a little like cherries.

Wow!  That is awesome weather.  It is quite a change.  Neat.  You didn't move to the deep south, did you?

that meatball sub looks unnatural.  There is a line of red poopies in the top bun, and there is brown paint on the end of the bun.

Do they charge you extra for the brown paint?

LOL - no, but our climate has a huge range.  Look up Koppen-Geiger type Dfb.

Beers for Science!!

From wiki, these places are Dfb:

Helsinki, Finland

Kiev, Ukraine

Fargo, North Dakota

Buffalo, New York

Montreal, Quebec

Vladivostok, Russia

That is so cool.  I grew up in one of those places.

Sharknado 2 is tomorrow. And SyFy has a sync app that will take control of your Phillips Hue lighting system to sync it up with the movie. Not sure I'm going to do it...

You have to.  It is awesome, completely 21st century.  You could sell tickets.

Hello all!

Sorry I can't stay. My dad's sister is in town.

Don't want to cast any ugliness on your day, but: she was tidying-up my grandparents' graves today and she noticed that parts of my grandmother's grave had sunk. That section of Cemetery Hill is almost all volcanic rock, so it's likely due to the porosity of the rocks. Anyway, she could smell the stench of a decaying body coming up through the rocks.

And this is why ecmoRandomNumbers will be cremated. :/

I just can't get that out of my mind this afternoon. That's just upsetting. Yuck.

When I drive by a graveyard, I turn on the cruise control, turn down the radio, set the AC to internal air only, take my feet off the floor, hands off the wheel, and hope the car goes straight.

You have to be making this up. *click internet click click* Wellll that was interesting. Would be even better if they did that with something I will actually watch.

Yeah. I'm kind of at a loss, too. I mean, who has to think about this stuff? She's a tough woman, too, but she says she keeps smelling it. That's not a smell that just goes away really fast, and it's her mother's grave.
