Happy Fourth of July to anyone who is reading this! It's a bit of an odd year (as if 2020 wasn't odd enough). Usually, on July 3rd we can hear the band and audio engineers do some test runs of the music that they will be playing on July 4th, and on the 4th it's live music all day (well, between 10am and 9pm when the fireworks display ends). This year we have none of that. Hopefully,
Gamercat waits for Greek Santa ;-)
A little holiday humor from Gamercat that I just came across. A little late for most western Santas (St. Nicholas), but not that late for Greek Santa (St. Basil).

One of my favorite seasonal STO events is here: Q's winter wonderland - where mischievous Q transports you to a...ermmm...winter wonderland...complete with winter events, winter clothing, and a new limited edition ship that you can claim.The Kramp'IhrThis year's addition to the game is the Kramp'Ihr - melding human winter-time monsters like the Krampus with Klingon undead (the Fekh'Ihr). It
Don't be a Turkey
This came across my feeds sometime during Thanksgiving, so in a sense it's a bit late, but considering that Turkeys are traditional in quite a few norther European cultures for Christmas, I might be a little early ;-). Some humorous commentary on Ajit Pai the current FCC chairman (and subsequently the corporatecracy...or just corpocracy that's ruling us these days) and the upcoming fight for
The human cooks!
This made me smile this past weekend :-)I've heard of butterball turkeys in the past, but have never really bothered to look up what makes the different from 'regular' turkeys
A little pre-Halloween humor. I came across these on Reddit last week: some off-brand costumes (I guess this is to not have to pay royalties ;-) ).

Just before this year ends...a little video game humor which made me smile. Even Boos need a little holiday cheer!
Crayon Pop 크레용팝 꾸리스마스
Saw this on facebook earlier today. Some interesting K-Pop that is holiday themed (at least from the visuals) ;-) I guess I need to go back and discover new K-Pop. This song is by Crayon Pop 크레용팝 꾸리스마스 and it's called Lonely Christmas

For the Borg, secret santa didn't work out
Saw this on Savage Chickens the other day. It made me laugh ;-)
Back to work!
Alright...I guess it's back to work time! Still thinking on vacation though. Here is a parade that we caught in Barcelona on our second day there (we missed something on the first day because it took forever to get to our place from the airport).This is the parade called Cerca Villa de doc dels diavles petits, which is part of the La Merce celebrations. This is video 1 of 2.
Moros y Christianos, Sagunt 2016
Took some video of the Moros y Cristianos (Moors and Christians) parade in Sagunto Spain.Here is part 4 of 4 (the longest video) to get a sense of the parade and costuming. It's a little game of thrones, but it looks fun. The festival of Moros y Cristianos represents the capturing of the cities by the Moors, and the subsequent recapturing (reconquista) by Christian armies.
Pumpkin spice already?!
This from a recent gamercat comic strip. Soon I guess we'll all be buying Christmas gifts in the summer ;-)
