In February our ship fell to an infection. The virus was the Battlestar Galactica series on Netflix (2004-2009). The crew simply could not function. McCoy could not find an answer. While debilitating there was nothing medical could do. The BSG virus simply had to run its course.
As a result we are behind in all stations. In fact we dd not finish our book of the month so our book for March is still Frankenstein. If you finished the read then use this month as an open reading month. However be ready because we are coming at you hard next month.
The BSG virus impacted our on-line store, YouTube and our Podcast the worst. All of these stations suffered a complete shutdown.
I feel I owe a bigger explanation so here goes…
From watching BSG I really fell in love with the Viper MK II fighter ship. Moebius Models issued a 1/32 scale version of the ship. So immediately I started looking at videos of various builds. These expanded into weathering technics, working with photo-etch and of course lighting. If you recall in our Elementary articles we have discussed the idea of teaching yourself new things. Being an autodidact I get lost in the learning process and abandon everything at times.
Like our hero Doc Savage I retreat to the Fortress of Solitude in order to pursue my interests. The urban slang for this is Going Off Grid. The problem is the entire Blog-Ship went with me.
This lost time is being referred to as the BSG Virus. While there are still traces left we are coming around.

Our ship has also gone though a large number of changes. Our bridge has been reworked and the areas that are normally sold as advertising are now links to our works, information pages and featured articles. Engineering will continue their work until our Ship is fast and user-friendly. If you are receiving our posts via email we encourage you to visit the ship once a week to see our changes.
Reading the Bible in a Year…A lot of people have said that they wishes they had started when we started in January. Our start was to give everyone a beginning date. If you did not start when we started you can start any time. We are encouraging everyone to start a course in daily study. This is our campaign. It doesn’t matter when you start as long as you start. If you want to start click Rosy’s Bible and we will give you helpful suggestions.
Our book of the month is still Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. This is a book well worth the read and the BSG virus kept us from it. If you finished it use this month as an open reading month. In April we read The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury so be ready.
A personal note:
So yes I can become so consumed by something that I will lose all concept of time. It’s like a fever that over takes me and I become consumed. I have been like this my entire life and it hasn’t slowed with age. This is why when Doc’s fortress is described as a place where he goes to lose himself in his studies and experiments I can completely understand.
Tony Stark’s garage is another example. He goes there and loses himself to the world around him. I believe everyone has that thing that they love to do. That thing that carry’s them away from the world. Some people fish or hunt or golf. Maybe its playing an instrument or gardening. Everyone has something.
So you will all have to forgive me for…well…being me!
May the Love of Christ be with you always….
…Live long and Prosper
