It's All night long.  Oak Island.  Was it named Oak for an oak herald in the Templar's Shield?

Got one of  these today.  I don't know how it works.  It magnetically levitates, and starts to rotate when light is shined on it.  Shining the 2 million candlepower spun it up from 0 to maybe 1000 RPM in about 6 seconds.

Naw, not this one.  But I did try to decode some of the Ancient Sumerian in the preview.

I hope it does not release any payload.

On that Sumerian stone, based on the Sumerian text in the Sumerian book the stone is to be tilted 90° up, and read from left to right, just at first impression.  No?

The Buffalo/Bengals game had a lot of snow, it must have drifted like that giant, eerie comma of a storm sliding across the country.

Discovered just days ago.  Uh huh.  We've seen the movies.  Some blokes probably have known for years, but were prevented from telling us by the Mayor of Amityville.

Yeah.  I was amazed, well that is probably a different thing.  I'm gonna have to investigate it with sensors, to try to find out how it works.

It's definitely pretty. Like Christmas card pretty. But it's also really, really bad out there. Went grocery shopping and some of the roads were crazy.

Perhaps there are benefits to living in a bunker, hmm.

Oooh, yeah, with hills and such icing up.  Glad you were able to stock up before Snowstorm Melda.

It's 64 here, rather nice, high pressure.  Rain would be nice-r though.   Saw Constellation Orion just a few minutes ago.

I'd love to burrow beneath my woods to create a lair.
