The burner is turned up, now the temp is 104F outside, when I left the temp was 101F.

The Doctor won't help with IHSS, but He's issued 4 prescriptions and the pharmacy will be delivering them on Tuesday, some pills are for water weight and are a higher dosage.

Before coming home I bought 2.327 gallons of gasoline so now I have just over 1/2 a tank.

I'm both tired and hungry, but then I have not had anything to eat since this morning.

Before leaving for the Doctors office I weighed Myself, 510.80lbs and I typed that in to a file.

Bugs Bunny is 80 today and is the only cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood walk of fame.

Be glad We don't live next to a Red Dwarf Star, super solar flares have been seen there, like 20 times the size of those from our star We call the sun.

On another vector. @Carlos

Any idea about what speed this is in relation to something any person can relate too?

Well that is about 21.25 light years per hour. So a trip to:
Alpha Centauri would take about 10 minutes plus acceleration and deceleration time. What is the 0 to a million time?
Wolf 359 would be under a half hour.

The rings on this image are about 15 minute jumps.

Winning after a 220km trip and bringing back a wagon load of timber and other necessities to get my new bed finished as well as spirit supplies. :-)

Not quite what I was thinking.
1.0855605174e+14 knots
I was going for a small hop. Say 8 1/2 minutes to our sun. I found a speed conversion app saw “knots” and how many is light speed. So I used a small round down number 186282 not 186000. Robert Heinlein uses 186282.397 miles per second for light speed.
