Quote of the Day

This line, spoken by Admiral Kirk at Captain Spock’s beautiful, is a beautiful tribute to a complex character:

Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human. William Shatner as Admiral Kirk in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Quote of the Day

“Up until about a hundred years ago, there was one question that burned in every Human – that made us study the stars and dream of traveling to them: ‘Are we alone?’ Our generation is privileged to know the answer to that question. We are all explorers, driven to know what’s over the horizon, what’s beyond our own shores. And yet… the more I’ve experienced, the more I’ve learned… that no matter how far we travel, or how fast we get there… the most profound discoveries are not necessarily beyond that next star. They’re within us – woven into the threads that bind us – all of us – to each other. The final frontier begins in this hall. Let’s explore it together.” Scott Bakula as Captain Jonathan Archer on Star Trek: Enterprise

Valentine’s Day Dinner

Some years, I make something fancy for Valentine’s Day, and some years, I make something fun. Whatever I choose, though, I try to make something special. This year, I decided to go with a sandwich bar similar to the one we had on New Year’s Eve, because it was such a hit:

I also made a Piña Colada cheesecake for dessert:

Valentine’s Day may not be a big deal around here the way some holidays are, but I still like to do a little something for my family to show them I love them!

And, I will leave you with this…a Valentine’s Day poem, written by Bunny:

“Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Spock wore yellow,
In pilot number two.”

Quote of the Day

I think after this winter, I have a new appreciation for this quote!

“The Vulcans say that the desert teaches men the meaning of endurance. But it’s the ice that forges real strength.” Jeffrey Combs as Commander Shran on Star Trek: Enterprise
