    Thanks, Bunnyette!

    What a thrilling finale to series 6! It was deeply satisfying on every level, and redeemed the darkness of the earlier episodes. Gosh I loved the showdown at the quarry! One question: Can anyone (possibly someone who's watched it more than once) tell me WHY the librarian was killed? I missed how he got in the way of the faulty-cement thugs who did the killing.
  3. Yes it does look uncomfortable. Hot, for one thing. My first thought: that poor kid.

    Gosh if this is how Fred Thursday's story ends, I can see that being a big reason why Morse became so embittered. More so even than his perennially unsuccessful love life.

    I think Fred and Win are both still stunned by the loss of all their retirement savings. I don't know how Fred can continue to put one foot in front of another at work, much less do his job, knowing he can't afford to retire no matter how humiliating his workplace becomes. Win on the couch staring at the TV seemed almost catatonic with depression.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I finally figured out who Francois looks like (to me anyway) -- the NY Times columnist Thomas Friedman.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    W. S. Merlin wrote a wonderful poem in tribute to the "ship of the desert," entitled simply "Camel." Worth looking for (sorry I don't know how to link from my phone).

    One good thing I can say about James's seemingly endless run is that Alex Trebek seems to be tickled pink by it. Good for him!

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    If writing extra crap next to your FJ answer is against the rules and thus to be discouraged, why the heck does Alex make it a point to read that extra crap out loud to the audience? Does he think it's cute? Ugh.

    The Jeopardy! All-Star Games

    I'm enjoying the tournament, more so the second day. Was amazed and gratified that I got yesterday's FJ. Generally clueless about geography, I owe my new-found knowledge to a recent read of Tim Marshall's book: "Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps that Explain Everything about the World." Title is a bit of an exaggeration but the book really helped me get a handle on big chunks of the world often in the news. I now have a better sense of how each relates to the rest of the planet.

    I especially like "How her own tail is trying to kill her."
