Earlier this week we cleared our pile of Netflix discs by watching the movie Eye in the Sky of which I expected relatively little, but got surprisingly much. It details a planned raid in Kenya in which Muslim terrorists manage to unknowingly get away from a raid but are followed by a drone aircraft armed with two Hellfire missiles. The adventure ends up being about the ins and outs of drone strikes on known terrorist targets, with discussions in some detail about the collateral damage. I found the movie surprisingly thought-provoking.

We kept busy through the week, though to be honest most of what we've been doing isn't exactly going to make interesting reading, so I won't go into it. I had a few health-related things to do, the sort of thing that you've got to do when you get to a certain level of seniority, but you don't brag about because most people just don't want to think about such things. Let's not, then. And we move on.

At work this week my wife dropped by yesterday bringing me lunch, and I took her on a tour of the office to see the changes that have taken place since I took the job. Then we had lunch together, which was very pleasant. OTOH, work kept me so very late and the rain so messed up traffic out this far on a Friday night that we just stayed in the neighborhood instead of celebrating friends' new digs. I wish them all the best at their new home.

And on to the day...
