Hi!
English is not my first language so sorry if some thing I write is unclear or spelled wrong.
Wanted to introduce myself. I'm a 45 years male. Grew up with my sister who has been diagnosed with ASD. Not sure about myself, but I have had struggles with mental health and socialising during my life. I guess I'm here to try to learn some things about myself, try to understand who I am. That's all for now. Maybe I'll uppdate with some more info later on.

Hey there :)

Oh yes for sure! I vividly remember, growing up during the cold war in the 80s, all of the airplanes from our airforce, especially Viggen.

An informative and enjoyable book purchased a decade or two ago.
Used it just last month to answer some Viggen questions on an aircraft model building forum.

Hmmm....regarding the second book....

We are watching our way through Star Trek (TOS)—the last episode we watched was "The Way to Eden", S3.E20—and I think they did a commendable job designing futuristic sets on a thin budget. And William Theiss did a wonderful job of making the guest actresses look wonderful. But I often feel sorry for the guest male actors having to go to lunch in the studio cafeteria in some of their costumes.

Some days it can be a very good thing to Not be an actor! :lol:

Would you believe me if I said, "That brings to mind a book ..."
