Talk about shattered illusions

Apparently this whole 'Mars as big as the moon' thing is BOGUS!! I was just thinking to myself yesterday, as the news folks were going on and on about the Lunar Eclipse that happened this morning, I thought 'self, why have we heard nothing about the Mars thing' Well, we've heard nothing cuz its a falsie. Snopes.com sets the record straight.

My illusions are shattered. I thought everything on the internet was true *dripping sarcasm*

J.P. Losman is rolling up his sleeves to beautify Buffalo, and invites others along

How cool is this? Offspring #3 and her boyfriend are planning on participating. I would too but I'm working.

Here's the story from the BuffNews. I'm sure that link will only work for a short while...then it goes into the archives and you have to pay to get it.

In any event.. here's the link for the website for info.

JP is starting to be one of my favorite sports people around here.

...It's my first day off in, like, 3 weeks. Got tomorrow off too. Feels kinda weird.

Bought myself an iPod about 2 weeks ago. Lovin' it. Uploaded all my old napster-fed-back in the day when tuneage was free- cd's back on to the old 'puter then down into the iPod. All those cd's rattling around in my car, now compressed into an, 'iiiiitty-bitty living space' *wow...did an Aladdin image just pop into your head right there? *

When the moon hits your eye....

Two moons on 27 August*

*27th Aug the Whole World is waiting for...*

Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August.

It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will cultivate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am. It will look like the earth has 2 moons. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.
