I got so caught up in reading other blogs this morning that I forgot to do my own post!! Now that is a sign of a brain cloud, for sure!
Happy times here at home: The Hubby is beside himself with joy that Syracuse University Football won their first game of the Season, in overtime! This is truly big news around here!
Reading the newspaper this morning, I was dismayed to see that there is a very large problem with Space Junk. This is not the first time we have heard about this, but it has gotten worse in the last two years. The debris in Earth's orbit has become very very dense. It is a wonder that any rockets can even get through this mess. NASA is trying to come up with ways to deal with it; for instance a giant space vacuum! Did anyone see "Spaceballs", the hilarious Mel Brooks movie, a take-off on Star Wars? There was a very large Hoover vacuum in that movie, lol!
On the positive side of interstellar news, have you seen the incredible photos that the feisty little Mars Rover has sent back? Amazing landscapes and mountains. Way back when, probably when I was 9 or 10 years old, I read Robert Heinlein's Red Planet. What a tremendous book! It set fire to my imagination and began a life-long love affair with sci-fi. The U.S. Space program never did take off like it should have back in the day and now, I am not so sure I can support monies spent for space exploration. Too much on this planet needs taking care of. If we could get out of these wars we are in..........but that is another post.
Anyway, it is Labor Day weekend here in the States, three days of non-labor for us. Maybe a barbecue if the weather is fine. Enjoy and relax if at all possible.
Hugs and blessings from Robin.
