Thank you so much for your sweet words! I've stored them in my "Blog Comments" file, like the treasures they are so I can take them out and re-remember them, one by one. Barbara, Linda, Debbi, NCMW, Thomas, Chris, Ruta, Marlene, and all...wishing you the best! And will do my best to keep the balls in the air for another 250 posts!
The weekend is here! Again. Thought I would mention that the EPOXI, NASA's spacecraft on the move, traveling at 8 miles per second has a fly-by tonight that will come within 435 miles of the Hartley comet. There is a spectacular image on the Daily Telegraph's website today, as the Hartley is capturing photos as I write. The Hartley comet was discovered a few years back by a British amateur astronomer, and is named for him. Here's the link to the Hartley Comet Photo
The comet is actually visible to the naked eye, more so with binoculars...providing you have a clear sky, which, here in Southern West Virginia, is unlikely because of clouds and snow in the forecast. Oh, and BTW...I cheated. That's that fuzzy moon from a few days back. But it kind of looks like a comet, don't you think?
And just look what I bought last week when it was 75 degrees! And you all laughed! Well, you should have been with me this morning at milking when the ice chips rattled down on the metal roof of the milking stall. I got in on the ground floor with this baby, called Green Lightning! I mean to tell you this is going to be the speediest downhiller I've ever owned. The yellow one we had last year finally gave up the ghost. This is way better! Come real snow, I will be that green streak of greezed lightning, tearing across the pastures, out here JOTOLR!Well, everyone, that about does it for this week. NCAA football tomorrow is LSU and Alabama...should be good. MM is a reasonable (not crazy) football fan and enjoys the game and how it's played rather than who wins. Which is very cool, I think.
Have a great weekend! See you Monday!
