    Damon, when you want crazy good tonkatsu try Tonkatsu Tamafuji on Kapahulu. I heard the lines get super long but we went when they first opened. Best katsu either of us has ever had. Aged pork cooked to perfection. And the tsukemonos (pickled stuff) reminded me of when I was a little kid and my great-grandmother made all of that stuff. Pics on FB

    The other place was Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin. Really good too, but not as good as the other place.

    BTW

    I've gained between 15-20lbs since Disneyland. We'll basically have been eating out for over a month for every meal.

    I too made a crystal radio. Also a Shortwave kit with about 20 feet of wire antenna strung from my window to the apricot tree. All I got on that was Radio Moscow. Every so often my dad brought home a huge console radio, 11 bands. I got some crazy shizz on that but never quite knew what it was.

    Given all the Apollo 11 stuff going on, I had a miniature Mercury capsule crystal radio. There was a screw that came out of the little end that tuned it.

    I used to listen to KNBR 680 out of San Francisco. 50,000 clear channel watts. I college in Pullman, Washington we’d get it when the atmospheric skip was good. AM was great for that. FM is pretty much line of sight.

    Those big radio stations were backup navigation beacons for aircraft and ships. They could triangulate from them to find position. That’s why they did station ID so often.

    I weighed myself at SIL's place.
    Was bummed to discover I had gained 15 lbs.
    I got home and weighed myself on my scale.
    I gained 7 lbs.
    Ok, that I can believe over the last three weeks of Mexican food, desserts, beer, and booze.
    I'll be back on track by the end of next week.

    A friend at the boarding school had a killer shortwave receiver. We spent hours late at night listening to all kinds of groovy stuff from around the planet.
    Listening to the first Columbia launch on NASA radio is an especially vivid memory.

    Today was a little nuts.
    Getting AAA to diagnose the battery failure, finding out the battery was indeed bad, going to Costco for warranty exchange, etc. Took many more hours than I thought it would.

    The worst part? As I was driving to Costco I glanced in the rearview mirror and noticed the passenger map light was on.

    So guess what? The dead battery was likely my fault (or Nanilei's) leaving that light on the night before we left for California.

    Whatever.

    I have a new battery free of charge.

    Now just got a text that a friend is flying in tomorrow morning.

    I really wanted to go to HASR Bistro with Gary tomorrow, but now might have to go do something with her and Nanilei.

    We'll see, maybe I will just take TheBus to HASR Bistro and let the girls do their thing.

    Happy wife, happy life, right?
