In other words, where have Emily and Shane been the last week? We took the week off to visit family in Iowa, but fear not, intrepid readers, because we got our geeky quota in by boldly going…to Riverside, Iowa.
Oh, the name doesn’t ring a bell? How about this: it’s the future birthplace of one James Tiberius Kirk.
We also managed to have a geeky event where we drove straight west during last weekend’s solar eclipse–as we came out of a thunderstorm, and experienced a confluence of cosmic events, watching lightning pale in comparison to the eclipse, and the eclipse itself resulting in the most massive, colorful rainbow I’ve ever seen. I wish we’d gotten a good picture of them! In any case, now back to your original programming.
