It's not that big. I went out and the girls told me that it hasn't changed much at all lately. We have a cloudy haze over it here in Edgecliff Village. The dogs have been more interested in the trees and squirrels than the moon, but at times I think they do acknowledge the moon with their dog/wolf/dog howls.

Sorry for not closing the large type.

Of course the moon is "big" -- they're going to invade Earth!

I think he might have blasted off to visit the Lunar Post Rapaire mentioned.

By the way, Rapaire, step outside and look at the moon. It is so big and beautiful!

We appear to be closing in rapidly on 39,000. I suppose it's too much to hope for that Mr Shatner will again grace us with his august presence when the anticipated moment arrives.

Been to the Thai Palace? Or Nepalese restaurant? Or the Cuban one? And there's that new sushi place that's going to open where Bullion Soup used to be. Now, if you want a culinary backwater try Idaho Falls....

But more importantly:

NASA RELEASES PHOTO OF LUNAR MONOLITH!!!

Here is a photo very recently released by NASA of the lunar south pole site where they crashed a probe last year to determine how much water might be up there. The colors in the photo indicate the amount of hydrogen detected, blue being the most and red the least. The area with the "X" is where the probe impacted.

BUT...in the lower right quadrant you can CLEARLY see a white cylindrical monolith, obviously left there to announce our space-faring presence a la "2001".

Are we ready? The Idaho Legion is in the midst of a Cosmic Galactic Disaster Drill as I report this, saddling and unsaddling horses, trying to find the ammunition and whiskey, and so on. THEY will be ready -- are YOU?

Actually, my class was in a town south of SLC at a university that shall remain nameless---one that I cheer against, whoever is playing.

SLC ain't bad. I went out to an exquisite Chinese restaurant on Friday night. It reminded me that this town, though I'm here by choice, is a bit of a backwater.

It's quite a drive to get to that university in Logan. I attended a conference there about 10 years ago. For a college town, they roll up their sidewalks mighty early in the evening.

I just arrived at home after driving up from points south this morning. I had a class down at a university in Utah (not the U of U), and decided to stay the night so I could drive home safely. Whew! Now I have the day off and will probably spend some part of it watching webcams around the world. Now Iceland is in daylight!

The view is overcast today, but this comes from the Everett Herald building in my hometown of Everett, WA, looking over the harbor. The Olympics are in view on nice days.

For those who can never get enough of looking at everyone else's corner of the world, a clever tip from my son via Facebook: drop inurl:/view/index.shtml into a Google search bar and have hours of viewing cams (or dead links) around the world.

I've been sad ever since the BLM in Fairbanks stopped pointing a camera at the river across a parking lot behind their office. It was interesting to see how deep the snow, if any critters came through, what the river was doing, etc. I'd love to find one for another spot like that.

LOL!!! Boy, is that ever lousy Spanish...but the meaning is still quite clear.

I think what you should have said, though, was something more like, "Hola, senorita. Yo necesito una puta muy pronto. Cuanto cuesta una noche contigo? Yo tengo cojones como un gran caballo."

Her hermanos would have REALLY stomped you! ;-D

Hola, senorita. Como mucho por la noche?

I once used that to say hello to a young lady, just like my youngest brother (the linguist, and a cunning one at that) taught me to do.

She slapped me, and then her hermanos stomped me. I don't think it mean "Hello, miss. How are you?" like he told me it does. I'm pretty sure that I can't trust my own brothers all of the time.

I also don't think "puta" means "happy", like he said it does.

By God, if Sawzaw finds out that you are going to Mexico to get dental treatment, he will probably report you to Homeland Security, you damned socialist swine!

Hi, Mom!! That boy was fun.

I had a long day Saturday--I drove down to the border and walked into TJ for a dental checkup and back again. Drove home. Got dressed up and went to the Epicoplian Church and got the sound set up for the funeral and the slideshow of pictures from the intense and colordul life of Peter Niiler. During the ceremony I was a reader. I read Ecclesiastes 1 to 13 (For every thing there is a season...) and it was good.

At the reception afterwards I sang the Parting Glass. They loved that. I did it a capella al fresca al dente di tutti capi.

I love the genuine pleasure this little boy had in not only standing on his little lectern and conducting, but in anticipating what was coming next. I found my self conducting along with him.

A favorite joke of my aunt's was musical in nature: a highway patrol officer pulls a vehicle over. The big cop lumbers up to the driver's window and announces "You forgot to cue in the woodwinds. Keep both hands on the wheel."

She said it happened to a friend of hers. Now it is a thing of urban legend. :)

The Lone Ranger was called that because he was the sole survivor of a patrol of Texas Rangers sent out to capture the Cavendish Gang. He was found by Tonto, an Apache he'd befriended as a child. Tonto nursed him back to health in an old silver mine, from which the LR got the metal for his famous silver bullets. A number of years later, Tonto found out what his name meant in English and shot his Faithful White Man Companion, sold the big white stallion to a circus, mined out the silver mine and sold it after salting it, and retired to Malibu where he spent the rest of his days harassing surfers and other non-intelligent sea life.

I've always liked the Egyptian method of determining your place in the Afterlife:

After undertaking the perilous journey through the underworld the deceased would face his day of judgement at the Hall of the Two Truths. The god of the dead, Anubis, would lead the dead to the Hall of Two Truths, where the deceased would stand in front of forty two judges and gods. The deceased was led to a set of scales where his or her heart, containing the deeds of their lifetime, was weighed against the feather of truth, which symbolised Maat the goddess of justice. The fate of the deceased would then be decided - either entrance into the perfect afterlife or to be sent to the Devourer of the Dead - the Great Swallower. If the deceased passed the test the judges in the Hall of the Two Truths pronounced the following divine order:

"He is justified. The Swallowing Monster shall have no power over him."

I'm sorry--I thought you would recognize the cultural cliche. You're supposed to say "The SHADOW do!"


That's what happens when humor gets rarified by the passage of time, and too few remain who recognize the referents. All of a sudden the joke isn't funny anymore!!

There was a time when even the phrase "A traveling salesman..." would bring a laugh. Now, likely as not someone will ask, "what's that??".
