Making Up For Lost Steak . . .

About 4pm Jan and I headed up to the Saltgrass Steakhouse in Webster to make up for missing our New Year’s Eve dinner while she was under the weather with our sequential colds. So, since the only cold-related problems we’ve got is an occasional hacking cough, we decided that tonight was the night.

We’ve found that if we can get there around 4:30 or so, or at least before 5, we can usually get a table pretty fast, or even immediately, like tonight. But by 5:30 the place was full and there was a line.

Between the Wedge Salads, Jan’s 9oz. Filet and my 16oz Ribeye, the meal was as  delicious as usual. And even better, we had a $25 discount on our Loyalty Card, so my steak was pretty much free.

Coming home, we had planned to drop off our Christmas decorations at the storage room. Both of them.

Our Rig Christmas Tree,

and our Christmas Wreath on the front of the rig.

but it was getting dark so we’ll do that tomorrow probably.

Between everything we had going on, and our NYC trip, I never did get around to putting up any lights this year.

Bah Humbug!

I’m sure you’ve probably seen the TV commercials for  the TV streaming channel, CuriosityStream. Started by the founder of the Discovery Channel, it features very well made shows on History, Science, Space, Society, Technology, and a lot more.

We had been talking about signing up, and then Jan found a post on Facebook giving you a 40% discount for yearly signups. So 1 year of HD service, that’s normally $19.99 is now $12.99.

For an entire year.

And if you want 4K service, it’s $42.99 rather than $69.99. Another great deal.

But there is a lot of 4K content on the HD service, also. Which meant that I got to see 4K video on our TV this afternoon, and it’s fantastic.

BTW this sale only goes through tomorrow, so check it out now at the link above.

Thought For The Day:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – C. S. Lewis
