Out of the Blue

Happy Groundhog Day, as today is… no wait, just kidding. As I mentioned last night, yesterday was the intersection of two running gags here, as the Chinese New Year and the day after Groundhog Day converged (this should explain that for those unfamiliar). Now I have to figure out why I keep waking up to Sonny and Cher on the clock radio.

R.I.P.: 'Last Tango in Paris' actress Maria Schneider had a turbulent life.

BBQ with friends tonight, I think as an experiment I will hang onto people when they give me the 3 second hug, see when things start to get awkward.
Supposed to get up into the 90's today & it will be light right up untill 9.30pm, hows your Winter going? .... sorry get me back in August.

Sounds like a great time for a star party. Show 'em the Southern Cross. Tonight we have our observatory meeting, I made a powerpoint presentation for the friend I spent time with down in Everglades last month that he is going to show when we saw the Southern Cross (my first time) just barely above the horizon right before morning twilight.
