Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth by Avi Loeb

I have been reading a very interesting book it's a bit philosophical, a bit astrological by Astrophysicist Philosopher Avi Loeb.

He is an Israeli-American theoretical physicist who works on astrophysics and cosmology. Loeb is the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University. He had been the longest serving Chair of Harvard's Department of Astronomy (2011–2020), Founding Director of Harvard's Black Hole Initiative (since 2016) and Director of the Institute for Theory and Computation (since 2007) within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.


Packing up dead people's things.

A close friend of mine's brother passed away from cancer. Over the past few weeks I have been helping her pack up her brother's things. Sorting through what is to be donated, packed up and moved to her house. Sold etc. It takes forever because one minute it is donate this no wait I want it no I do not have room, wait yes I do and then all the tears. Well we finally got things completed yesterday. At least I think we did. She has a lot of legal work still to do, because he left no will. I have done this a number of times for friends. I want to say no, but I always say yes.


My house is stupid

When my house was constructed it was with cutting corners all over the place. Dumb, "rinkydinked", poorly done, half assed (as opposed to what, "whole assed"? I get the concept, but still...) are all words that spring to mind when I think of my house. My friend contributed rinkydinked, btw.


Oh Boo Hoo - poor pitiful me...

I'm feeling sorry for myself. I broke a tooth and now I have to get a root canal and a crown. My tooth really hurts, but the dentist that does root canal stuff is in the office a limited amount of time each week and thus my appointment isn't until May 15. MAY!


Happy Valentine's Day Everyone

To everyone a virtual kiss and long distance hug.


Does anyone know if Ruth Handler worked on Dungeon Siege...

I was wondering if Ruth Handler had anything to do with the character designs for Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege Legends of Aranna either as a consultant or designer. It would explain a great deal if she did.



Did you sleep through most of the New Year celebrations? Tired Uh, I did.
