Friday, dude.

I've got a class starting on Sunday so I won't be watching NCIS: Los Angeles live but I'll catch up the next day. So I've got class on Tuesday and Sunday evenings. I won't be doing the Friday evening thing for a while.

NCIS: Los Angeles "Battle Scars":

Hetty's former Vietnam war colleagues partner with NCIS after a former Navy commander kidnaps a corrupt Veterans Affairs administrator who has been siphoning funds.
I've started binge watching Time Team. This is a UK series about a group of archaeologists who have 3 days to discover historical artifacts in different sites around Britain. Archeology!

History of the UK! The series had 20 SEASONS. It started in 1994. I've found the first ones on This is so right up my alley. I'm loving it.
Season 1 Episode 1: Athelney, Somerset
In this first ever episode of Time Team, Tony and the team travel to Athelney in Somerset to investigate a series of hills (once islands in a bog) that became Alfred The Great last defensive positions after a series of losses to invading Viking forces. It is also the place Alfred began the great rally that saw him re-conquer most Wessex and laid the foundations of the nation that was to become England 
Season 1 Episode 2: Ribchester, Lancashire
Ribchester in Lancashire has been known for some time as a site of a Roman fort. The Time Team arrive in the town to answer two questions, one is to consolidate all the previous excavations on the site, and the second to define the outline of a possible older wooden fort that is thought to have been in the area. 
Season 1 Episode 3: Much Wenlock, Shropshire
The Time Team go to the small town of Much Wenlock, after they receive a letter from a resident explains a recent excavation uncovered possibly the oldest house in the town. What they discover is the remains of an old Saxon village transitioning into a larger newer Norman settlement.
Season 1 Episode 4: Llangorse Lake, Powys
The Time Team travel to Brecon Beacons in Wales, they have come to investigate a small man-made island in Llangorse Lake. Locals tell many strange legends including hearing the sounds of Church bells echoing across the body of water at night. The Team want to know who built the island and try to find evidence to support the stories of it eventual fall into disuse.
 I'm on episode 2 right now. Some of the later seasons are available on Amazon Instant via the Acorn Channel subscription -- shows from the UK which is also right up my alley.

It's a great dark somewhat rainy day today. Of course. On a Friday. Not a Saturday or Sunday. Bah.

Doing a seminar on crystals tomorrow for a couple hours. Otherwise it's the usual getting groceries, laundry, reading, napping, etc.

Have a good weekend, folks

Much love,
