Patagonia is in South America ... Argentina & Chile.

Unless one counts the business, which is in Ventura CA. :icon_wink:

And yes, I've been to Manassass Battlefield a number of times.  I have enjoyed it.  It is a smaller overall park then say Gettysburg or Antietam, although I've enjoyed exploring the area where the 1st Battle was fought which is the most accessible, and I've hiked through a good portion of the 2nd Battle area north of the main area that was fought over in both as well.

Here is another place I'd like to go see ...

Watched first seven episodes of season one so far.  Episode seven's attempted poisoning of Daenerys by meeting a wine merchant on market day seems far fetched.  The assassin would have needed to know she would stop at his booth.
Varys' little birds are very good and far reaching.  :wink:
Not surprising.

Although having the assassin try to do his work in a market place just seems misplaced.  It assumes Daenerys will show up, and for that matter stop at his selling location. Bah.

I think it was more taking an opportunity. The planet might not necessarily be to wait for her to show up, but to get to her location posing as a merchant, and then he could decide what to do. He could try and sneak into her tent/house and poison her, or knife in the dark or something. Instead he got 'lucky' and she happened to stop at his booth. So he took an opportunity.

Alternatively, I don't think he was a dedicated assassin per say. I think when he recognized her, he remembered there was a bounty on her head, so he used some 'special stock' to try and claim that bounty while he had a sweet chance.
Ok, that is a decent enough of waltz around it, so I'll accept.  At the same time, then they should have worked that into the story so the person trying to follow doesn't think it is stupid.  Although perhaps it'll be shown in the next episode when Verys shows up again.

I want more time to hobby, more time to paint, more time to play, more time to construct, more time to create, more time to write, more time to get lost in the joys of the hobby.

"Winter is coming ..." 

8th and final season of Game of Thrones is starting this evening.

I hadn't seen any of these since it started, originally wanting to finished reading book one before, yet didn't.  And I don't get HBO, I'd have to by up and don't watch much TV anyway to want to pay the extra price each month just to watch GoT.

Anyway, started seeing a lady who likes this show, and I have started watching the first season via you-tube.  I've gotten through 1st four episodes in last four days, and enjoying it.

Haven't read any of this thread, although maybe will start from the beginning as I move through the episodes, we'll see.

Hmmm ... The Rise of Skywalker, and interesting title.  it said it was the end of the saga and it also said no one is ever really gone.  Hmmm.
