Random Thoughts 6/7/12

  • We had a wonderful day at Omaha's zoo yesterday with Grandma and Grandpa.  The weather was beautiful, the Henry Doorly Zoo is one of the best zoo's in the country, and the kids loved being there with my folks.  It was fantastic, all around.
  • After going to the zoo, and not napping one wink in the car going or coming, three-year-old Anneliese slept thirteen hours straight last night.
  • I was disappointed by PBS's showing of the second season (or "series" in British parlance) of BBC's "Sherlock."  Several minutes were cut from each of the three episodes to make it fit neatly into 90 minutes and leave room for the opening and closing advertisements.  It's not that the second season itself was that bad, parts of it were actually really good, but I suspect that all of those cuts threw the show's pacing off stride.  It made the show a bit underwhelming over all in my opinion.  A third season will air next year.
  • The Kansas City Zoo has made tremendous strides in the last few years but Omaha is still quite a bit superior.  But that gap is closing.
  • New Hobbit production video blog.
  • Here's a nice little article about the TWA museum, located in TWA's old headquarters, here in Kansas City.
