I visited the Lockbourne plague cemetery in April, 2017. It's a hundred yards off the road in the middle of a corn field and can only be found when the corn isn't growing. "The local legend goes that the people here died from a mysterious plague and were buried in the middle of a field for fear of contamination."

Java, that architecture mirrors the landscape as much as adobe houses in New Mexico.

Speaking of NM, I've got to get back down there with my camera.

Yumm, Tick Pâté coming up!

In the 70s my Grandmother was a test subject at the Rocky Mountain Tick foundation. It seems if a tick bit, the tick died. Sadly this did not get passed on to me. :(

I love the look of this gear. I got it at a "name your price" deal from a guy I know here in town. They were in his basement taking up space. Speaker stands also, heavy metal stands for smaller speakers. Oh, and they sound nice too :wink:. In the end, I traded him 12 pieces of carved African mulch for it all. A steal.

I got 1st out of 100 players in Fornite last night. Competition is adjusted by level, and I'm a medium level, so not the best in the world, but still tough for a dad.
