Honda HSV-010

I had no idea this car existed until I heard it mentioned in yesterday's New for '96 podcast.

Visiting a plane museum and a train museum

On Sunday, I took my son to Sacramento for a day of museums.

First, we went to the Aerospace Museum of California on what used to the McClellan Air Force Base. I've been reading about how these A-10s would be super helpful in Ukraine.

Here is a miniature F-16 used for recruiting.

The high school volunteer was very sweet in helping the boy take off, fly, and land his plane on the simulator.

In the afternoon, we visited the California State Railroad Museum

On the way home, we stopped off for dinner and spotted this beautiful Edsel.

Mira Sorvino

Mira Sorvino had a great career in the 1990s until she was blacklisted by Harvey Weinstein after three terrible interactions. Now that he is in prison, she is back! This WTF podcast interview is worth a listen, especially the bit about her studying in China just before Tiananmen.

The interview inspired me to watch Mighty Aphrodite, for which she won an Oscar. I had never watched a Woody Allen (yuck) movie from beginning to end before.

...which led us to re-watch Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion. A true classic.
