Eye on the Sky
Well, my sky watching has been pretty special lately. We have been blessed with clear skies the last week or so. When the weather is warm (relatively speaking) I go outside with the dog and sit on the back steps looking at the stars. A few nights ago I was lucky enough to see a "falling star" in the vicinity of the constellation Orion. Tonight, at about 9:15, I was again outside and looking around when I spotted a moving ligt in the sky that was not an airplane. How do I know? Airplanes blink. This moved like a plane but was a steady, white light moving west to east. Now, I have seen the ISS (International Space Station) go by once before but it was much fainter and was moving more SW to NE. Tonight it was just as clear as could be, just to the north of me. So, I checked the NASA charts and, sure enough, it was the ISS (it could also have been a satellite). How cool is that?? I always wanted to go into space. Probably influenced by watching the original "Star Trek" when it was first on (and in reruns as the show was cut and hacked to allow more commercial time). Of course, not being born at the right time and being severely claustrophobic it didn't work out. So I enjoy the space program from my seat in the back yard.....

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
