I had to write this down. I think it's pretty clear which viable candidate to vote for. No vote is a vote for Trump and darkness. Fuck that.

Your brain will lie to you without qualm, warning, reason, or regret at any moment of your life. Just look at an optical illusion, get stoned or drunk, have a head injury, pull a bunch of three G aerobatic loops, or spend a bunch of time on a dark quiet night star gazing. The brain making up shit for you is constant.

like water sick or air sick. Today,I went the movie IMAX 3D. It was my first time to watch IMAX 3D anyway. I did get some stoned before go watching and brought a beer that threater are allowed to sell the people in Nevada. I sipped the beer about 4 times then stop drinking. It caused my brain confused and it caused my body confused,too. I got a sick a little and have to go through the movie get finished. I learned a lesson. Next time,have to be straight if want to go see IMAX or go see the normal movie if get myself doped up. lol. You are right. Now,Get feel better when drink the water and ate a candy bar after the movie finished. Oh,boy...I am too old for this shit. Thanks!

25 kids got into the air today on a cool, grey day. But it was a good day! Besides flying we had 44D out for display and a metal working workshop using an English Wheel to form some curved metal domes, a disappearing skill.

When you take kids flying, sometimes they come back and take kids flying.

In 2013, when I was 13 years old, I took my first Young Eagles flight with pilot Tom Hail, Young Eagles coordinator at the Watsonville Airport (EAA Chapter 119, Watsonville, California) in a Cessna 172. I was hooked.

Under new-ish management. Previous reviews are irrelevant. Menu is close to the same, better service. No more garlic fries, different burger and chicken items. Tonight's take home order was messed up, maybe our fault but it seems they need to get their act together a little more.
