This was a fairly big week as far as Netflix use was concerned, both with the streaming and the discs. Specifically, we seemed to have a thing about named movies.

First one we watched was Jason Bourne which I found pretty disappointing and nearly boring, the final car chase notwithstanding. They left things open for more, but I've had enough.

Then because friends had been talking up the sequel as well as the original, I pushed John Wick to the top of the Netflix queue and we watched it on arrival. I was very impressed; it was a much better movie than I had expected of it. It had my wife on her feet shouting at the TV screen at one point.

Last Sunday we had Dungeonmaster, a fun episode. As usual, that pretty much takes up the day, of course.

Yesterday, I was invited by Derek to join him at a lecture at the Planes of Fame air museum at the Chino Airport, where the discussion dealt with the use of various fighter aircraft by the fledgling Israeli military in the War of Independence. As a guest, they had one of the pilots who volunteered to fight for Israel, a man who had flown carrier aircraft off the USS Wasp during WWII. Specifically, much of the discussion dealt with the USAAF P-51s, and after the lecture a P-51 went up with the winner of a raffle as passenger and buzzed the airport repeatedly. Very cool! Following that, Derek and I met our wives for a late lunch. Great day...
