Under the Sea....

I made a ring a few years ago that I kept for myself, and is on of my favorite rings.  I call it my Barnacle ring.  It inspired this bracelet made of sterling silver and gems.  Iolite, lab Sapphire, Lapis, London Blue Topaz and Aquamarine have been added to this bracelet along with sterling balls. 

Just listed in my Etsy shop!

The trekkiest

A few months ago I discovered that Netflix had all the Star Trek episodes on watch instantly.

I've seen them all before several years ago, but it's been nice seeing them all again.

I started with Enterprise, the last televised series in the franchise. This show went off air way too soon IMHO...

A lot of the time I don't actually watch the episodes, I'm mainly listening to whatever is going on.

After Enterprise I moved on to Deep Space Nine. I think this might be my favorite of all the series. The characters are diverse and complex. Lots of different alien species involved.

Now I'm on the 2nd season of Voyager...

I'm finding myself missing the Deep Space Nine characters.

My family thinks I'm crazy, but I really do love Star Trek. I've tried to get into Dr. Who, but I just don't get it. You'd think a person who finds Star Trek believable could enjoy Dr. Who, but I just don't find it at all believable. Oh well. Different science fiction strokes for different science fiction folks. ;)

I was surprised to read that Dr. Who is the longest running sci fi series. I'll never give up on my Trek though.

Also, in case there is any confusion...
