### First digits after the decimal point

Éric Angelini is not at the moment updating his latest sequence suggestion, so I will post my extension (assuming a 1, 2 start) here:

### A million-digit Leyland prime (third one)

After my second find, I really did not think that I would generate another example in my current search space. However, at the upper end of that space:

194968^136197+1*136197^194968 is 3-PRP!

This is now the 14th largest-known Leyland prime. Ryan Propper owns the largest 13:

 19 million-digit Leyland primes (via Norman Luhn); n-th Leyland + 1 = A076980 index

### Bucket list #1

My original five-piece bucket list is here with #2 here.

1. Wiener schnitzel (The Coffee Mill closed in 2014; Amber closed in 2021.)

 Café Polonez: 195 Roncesvalles Ave
Catherine and I had lunch today at Café Polonez with Shelley and Denny Mylko. The restaurant is just north of Fern Ave. I of course had the pork schnitzel:

 schnitzel with cole slaw, beets, carrots, and potatoes: \$21.95 plus tax
Very nice!

### Neheim-Hüsten street view

Three years ago I wrote an article about my Neheim birthhouse, captured from a distance on a bicycle-ride YouTube video. In it, I bemoaned the absence of Google's street view. Today, by chance, I noticed that Google has (from October 2022) a very limited street-view coverage of Neheim (and its 1950s-era twin town of Hüsten):

I was fortunate that my birthhouse was visible from Bergheimer Weg (in that 2009 blog post is a link to a 1934 photograph of the house being built):
