Did you watch the launch of the SpaceX Dragon capsule on Saturday afternoon? We did. And it was a beautiful thing to see.

We have been out of the space business for too … Continue reading Monday Musings: Space, the Final Frontier

Friday Review: The Last Emperox (Interdependency #3) by John Scalzi

My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the third and final book in Scalzi's Interdependency trilogy. The affiliated planets and habitats of the Interdependency are just that- interdependent on each other for trade, goods, and survival.
