“Evening Captain. Another Pot-Pourri, Sir? It’s been a while.”
“Evening Scotty. Yes it has. Do you have your destination?”
“Yes, Sir. All over the place?”
“All over the place Scotty. Beam us down.” (Above: a chair from Rajahstan. Author’s personal collection. Didn’t go there yet. Bought it here.)

“Captain? You do remember the Ed’s comment about the title ‘Pot-pourri’?”
“Yep, Scotty. I do. She says and probably is right that many readers bypass it as the title is not clear. But I’ve looked for alternatives. ‘Medley’? ‘Melting pot?’ ‘Martini stirred’? I’m not convinced. Anybody got a better idea?”

Paris. “Here fell for the Liberation, Montauron jean, police officer, August 24, 1944″. There are many such plaques on the streets of Paris, particularly near the Seine, Concorde, and Ile de la cité, where most of the fighting took place. Some of those fallen were 18 or 20. Never forget them.

“Scotty? I just saw the pilot of Star Trek last night, and only Spock was there. You weren’t. Neither were the others. Why?”
“A very unfortunate occurrence Sir. That pilot looks like it was done in a parallel universe. And it actually was. Discard it, please. The second pilot is the good one.”
