My son came to me this afternoon, “Hey Dad, did you hear about Picard…”, I stopped him before he finished his sentence… “Son, we are StarWars family.”.

He looked at me… “Sooo, no?”… “Exactly.”

I do hear it is a good movie though and have huge respect for actors… Apparently it is a series. We are after all StarWars family.

My kids are crazy about this song. I wanted to include it here so it is not always serious coding stuff.

Eevee has a long and exhaustive post about history of html and css. I forgot a lot of these things, how we had to put FONT (in caps) for every tag.
