I read George Orwell’s 1984 sometime during “Junior High”, which in the 1970s was what we now call “middle school”. My district, Adair County R-III, had grades 7, 8 and 9 in their own building.

The school library had a copy of 1984. I was busy reading a lot my 7th and 8th grade years, so I read it.

Summer 2021 I bought a Stirling Cycle engine kit. This is a type of heat engine, and in the case of the kit I assembled, the heat came from a small alcohol lamp.

I went to the local drive-thru strip mall liquor store to buy some Everclear.
