Bubble Time and Sunshine

Another cold day here in Iowa. At least the sun was out for a bit. My Netflix entertainment choice of the day while working in my Bubble was the Discovery Channel Deadliest Catch. I'll never eat another piece of crab without thinking of all the work and danger that goes into catching it. YIKES! And just to mix up my viewing pleasure I also watched National Geographic Beyond the Movie; National Geographic: The Lord of the Rings. Yesterday I got a history lesson watching a PBS documentary Greeks: Crucible of Civilization. I watch an odd mix of movies but rarely does it include a 'chick flick'. Not sure what's up with that.
