Sunny today. Currently, it's 88˚F, with a heat index of 92˚F.

This will always be the lost summer. For most of the world, not just me.

Last night we started watching (finally) The Big Bang Theory, and it's hilarious. Back in March, Jun Ebersole at McWane discovered I'd never seen a single episode, and his response was, "And you call yourself a scientist!?"

"People ask me to predict the Future, when all I want to do is prevent it". ~ Ray Bradbury (1982)
