IN WHICH BEAR'S COMPUTER GOES BUST
It finally happened. Bears computer just won't work. The screen refuses to show anything. @*#&$&^$%#@@
Bear is . . . frustrated by that. Bear is using J's computer right now, but that isn't such a good plan in the long term.
HOWEVER, next week Apple comes out with a new iPad. (I think it is iPad 4).
You know what Bear is going to do? Of course you do. Because Bear has the brightest readers in the blogsphere, you know exactly what I'm going to do.

We saw the "Northern Lights" last night. (For those inclined to propriety, that's the Aurora Borealis.) Not as wonderful as usual (because of all the light pollution in the city). But still lovely.
The day before, there was a huge solar flare, which sent surges of solar wind through the Van Allen Belts (or Van Allen Radiation Belts, to be formal).
I remember the winter of 1972. Driving home in the dark from a trip way out in the country. That's when we lived way north of River City. The Northern Lights were out, and they light up the whole sky. It was AWESOME!
Hope you have an awesome weekend, too. Bear will return, as did General McArthur to the Philippines. Just a matter of when.
