Out of the Blue

Today is a special occasion here in the BlueTower as MrsBlue and I commemorate our wedding anniversary. And of course when I say here in the BlueTower I mean literally, as we are not actually going anywhere to celebrate the event amid the lockdown. But I don't want to complain about that because we are on-board with efforts to keep everyone safe and healthy amid the pandemic. I guess we'll try to make ourselves a special meal and hope the chance to go out to a restaurant to make up for this comes sooner, rather than later.

Actually, it isn't much of an article. But yeah going to Mars is currently crazy talk. We need some serious technology advances before that is going to happen.

Not to mention we current live on a planet perfectly adapted for our survival and that's what we need to make the most of. Spreading to the stars only makes sense if we can actually attain it and won't just bring the same problems with us.

Good Wired article that clearly demonstrates why going to Mars anytime soon is a pipe dream. And that's just the journey. Doesn't even account for all the actual problems we'd have to deal with on Mars itself. Focus on fixing this planet, thanks.

Always celebrate our anniversary by cooking.

I started playing Bannerlord (having never played much of the original M&B) and am having quite a good time. Game is still very much early access (which I'd previously sworn off of, but desperate times...) but I knew I was going to enjoy myself as soon as the Conan-esque intensely manly title music started playing.

Happy Anniversary to Mrs Blue and you.
Might I recommend the new UV-C equipped Roomba as an anniversary gift, but only if your couch is comfortable.

Happy anniversary to you both!

We celebrated ours last week in the backyard with a BBQ and some beers. I can't say I missed the fancy meal out.
