Falling FreeBooks

Falling Free by Louis McMaster Bujold.
Sci-Fi: Space Opera: 307 pages.
Volume 14 in the series Vorkorsigan.

Probably the worst of the series. No Miles, no Ivan just some people hundreds of years before setting up parts for later stories. A company has produced an alternative human species for use in free fall with 4 arms and no legs. Then eventually more than half way through the book decides to eliminate them and the actual story starts. Characters are dislikable.

Forgot to uncage the queen yesterday. Did it tonight, she was dead. No idea why workers in the frame so it wasnt that they couldnt get to her. That will set things back 3 days already. Might try grafting by hand tomarrow.

Its not 80 degrees out thereHouse
Outdoor temperature sensor said it was 79 when I got up. Not quite right, only about 40 degrees too warm. Replaced the sensor since it was the problem not the solar transmitter. At one point today it said it was 95 when it was more like 50.

Gunpowder and EmbersBooks

Gunpowder and Embers by John Ringo.
Fantasy: Post-Apocalyptic: 336 pages.
Volume 1 in the series Last Judgements Fire.

Looks like someone has been reading Rifts. Electric eating ants and fire breathing pterodactyls caused an apocalypse, this is the world afterwards when they think there is a chance to defeat the ants and their cultists once and for all but betrayal abounds.
