Speaking of "The Whip" (well, we were at one point), made the trip last weekend with my son for a "last" (?) meal/brew outside for the season. Great day!

I am always delighted by an uplifting book, and not just as an occasional thing, tome after tome!

But I think I like soft cover the best, Tom said spinelessly.

I swear that this had got to be the biggest collection of knowing nerds since the Big Bang Theory. I am proud to count myself among the members of this smart and funny group.

"Why did you join Starfleet?" they asked Tom? "Because I needed more space", he said expansively.

"Why do you do crosswords?" they asked Tom. "Because I come across them and I'm no longer down", he said definitively.
