A funny thing happened on the way to Dayton

Was headed to the Dayton contest on Saturday, when I got clocked just over the Ohio river bridge.  Got my bell rung and lost my last year’s production of kits, but it could have been much, much worse.

The modelwife got me to watch this Netflix show.  It is very good.  Extremely well acted.  Jason Bateman is a very good actor.  Warning, it is violent and there are some very uncomfortable scenes, but it is worth watching.

This photo comes from a previous trip to Jamaica.  The plane was photographed at the airport in Montego Bay Jamaica (MBJ).

Yes, I use it and find it helpful.  No, I don’t generally take photos of my food and don’t review a restaurant while I am there. Story here.

One of my great-grandfathers.

This is way cool.  Just like modelers do it, only a lot bigger.

Giving churches a tax break for preaching the government mandated position.  I can’t imagine any attorney thinking this would pass a constitutional challenge.  I have relatives in Maryland and the “rain tax” is universally despised.
