About This Club

Builders, Singers, and Gardeners, all are welcome!

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Why not? Andy Serkis is pretty good actor. He voiced Caesar perfectly in War for the Planet of the Apes. I do not really like this film, but Caesar had a good voice. I watched this film with my friend from papersowl.com. We went to the cinema for this movie instead of doing homework that evening. All evening we discussed how bad he is.
  3. 15 minutes at the DMV and I was able to renew my driver's license and get a Real ID - it was basically deserted - kind of scary actually, but the people there were upbeat and friendly. Had to go to the local Kaiser for blood work - also deserted, but prepping for an onslaught. Work is slowing down, but still open. I was asked by the state how long I was keeping the doors open and I replied as long as I can, (I have a small environmental testing lab that conducts regulatory required testing). We'll see. Anyone else affected yet? Hope everyone is OK.
  4. Looks like the filming on the TV show has stopped (wheel-of-time-production-delayed) 😞 Anyone affected by the outbreak directly or indirectly yet? We had a little surprise at the supermarket on Friday. Never seen empty shelves like that before! And my son just told me about an online friend who is being confined with his family. Plays computer games full-time now, but no fun for us older people. How is everyone doing?
  5. It's been a couple months - harvested one nice zucchini and have some tomatoes, but they are not ripening 😞 Maybe I'll bring some inside.
  6. I just finished “I Love the Bones of You” by Christopher Eccleston. I started “SteelHeart” by Brandon Sanderson.
  7. I’ll check that out! My next books are “Becoming” by Michelle Obama and “Born a Crime“ by Trevor Noah. I just finished “Angela’s Ashes” and “‘Tis” by Frank McCourt.
  8. 2Hi all. I'mNot reading right now -too busy. But I read several interesting books over the December-January holidays: The most recent book was "21 lessons for the 21st century" by Yuval Harari. It's not really lessons, but rather some interesting thoughts on what the rest of this century is likely to hold in store for society. Each chapter covers a specific issue or field. For example, the 1st 5 are headed Disillusionment, Work, Liberty, Equality and Community. Certainly an interesting view of the future, although some readers might be offended by his dismissive comments on religion. Actually, my most recent reading was not a book at all, but the daily (almost) blog of the crew of one of the boats taking part in the Cape to Rio yacht race. This gave a really good insight into what life is like on board a racing yacht, and has all the excitement of a thriller - you'll see why. https://www.jmbusha54sailing.com
  9. Sounds interesting. I'm in the middle of the "Undying Mercenaries" series myself. What is everyone else reading these days?
  10. Welcome Fantomboo! It certainly has been a while! How have you been? As you can see, I've tried to keep the place much the same, but you are right, it sure has been slow around here. Spend most of my time watching the tomatoes grow.
  11. *Sitting down after a long journey, takes a look around...* "This place was much busier the last time I stepped through the doors. Have any thing to drink? Perhaps a nice warm tea"
  12. Been a while since I have walked in the library here (original poster of the library) How is everyone? I am currently reading and should finish up today "Seventy eight degrees of Tarot" I plan to start up "The Luminous Dead" tonight.
  13. OK, here's a big clue: Last Christmas, I gave you my heartBut the very next day you gave it awayThis year, to save me from tearsI'll give it to someone special
  14. OK, how about this one from a new, slightly twisted (well, not really "twisted", but rather with a twist that took me a while to figure out), Christmas movie based on a song: Tom: It's good luck you know. Kate: What is? Tom: Getting pooed on by a bird. Kate: I'm busy, you're weird, good-bye!
  15. It's been a while, so I Googled: https://youtu.be/hKzy_S2gRI8 Bruce Campbell in Army of the Dead - good choice!
  16. Well, it has been a couple weeks and my little green houses are still there and doing pretty well: Besides the tomatoes, there is a spaghetti squash, thyme, chives, an old zucchini, and a mis-labelled pepper (I think).
  17. Good that your greenhouses survived. Growing anything else 8n them besides tomatoes?
  18. Well, my little winter green houses weathered their first storm OK. Here are some pics: We'll see how the tomatoes do this winter.
  19. How could they not have kept the ogier? Aside from being the witness narrator role in the story, they're probably the most important fantasy trope.
  20. Here's a link to the announcement on Tor: WoT Tor Sounds like I wasn't the only one worried.
  21. I've been so worried about it - too many rumors, both the Ogier and Thom Merrilin were supposedly on the chopping block. So glad that there was no need to open The Book of Translation!
  22. I’m so happy that they are keeping the ogiers.
  23. “Loial, son of Arent, son of Halan.” Please welcome Hammed Animashaun as Loial to #WOTonPrime.
