First day off was a huge success, I spent part of the day needling my counterpart like she does to me; we’re in the middle of watching the Mandolorian Season 2; I’m getting the sprinkler system re-installed as we had to cut a bunch of wires and pipes to get the driveway extension put in, we’re also getting a concrete pad put in the back yard for a shed. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s weekend eve, time the plan the beer and meat menu for the weekend.
Around the DN since our last open thread:

We come to today’s media selection: Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to wash your hands, tip your waiter from a safe distance, and Welcome Aboard!
