Spent an hour outside, 11 meteors. One of the brightest was clearly a Geminid not a Leonid however. It started off well 4 in the first couple minutes but then slowed down. Fog was starting to roll in at the end. This muted the church lights across the pasture which have gotten worse, they put up a new building with more 24 hour lights.

This is somehow tied to some books by Weber way back, but also a Terran Republic series. This one however has aliens invading a preestablished warp point empire.

Jeep is totally screwedHouse
I knew the frame was rusted. It makes noise. Today it got worse. Looked under and inside. Skid plate bolts are busted out of the frame. Engine seems to be sitting at an angle and fan is brushing the housing. Unsafe to drive. Left at Leslies and need to figure out how or if to fix but its going to have to be towed away.

I really dislike when Baean starts a new author with an old one but its clear it almost all the new guy. This is technically contemporary fantasy, barely. Its really military fiction.
