Happy Independence Day, Americans!

It's also Lorna's birthday, and I'm taking her to dinner tonight at a local steakhouse, the Saltlik. They don't have a website, but it's the place with the iron horse outside, just north of the Calgary Tower.

(no subject)

We hadn't been to the Saltlik before, but it went very well. The steaks were good, the service was prompt and unobtrusive, the setting was pleasant -- an old bank building, all dark wood and leather with high ceilings and a Chihuly chandelier (or a knock-off?).

Now we're going to watch a couple of episodes of Farscape. I missed this when it was shown on TV, but started watching it on DVD a few weeks ago. It ran 4 seasons, so there are something like 88 episodes plus a 4-hour miniseries (the library has the complete set). It'll take a while to get through all that, assuming we don't get bored with it somewhere along the line.
