Sunny Sunday

Coronal holes are places in the sun’s atmosphere where the magnetic field opens up and allows solar wind to escape. In the image, above, curved lines trace the sun’s magnetic field; arrows indicate the flow of gaseous material (solar wind) away from the sun. Gas velocities in the stream could be as high as 700 km/s (1.6 million mph). When such a high-speed stream hits Earth, it is likely to spark bright polar auroras.

    Went up the hill to a gravel pit to pop off a few rounds with my new personal body guard that makes big holes, shooting low and left, gotta fix that.

    My neighborhood is close to I-80, real close, 2 blocks from a Foodie exit,
    drifters and transients-O-plenty, an once of prevention….

    WordPress is malfunctioning or the little demons are busily rearranging things again. They already forced me into the ‘new an improved’ blog posting screen that added a dumb “beep beep bop animation in the middle of the page but the rest is the same? duh.
    Then when laying out the post, my pics show up half size even when specified with the HTML dimensions, niggling little annoying issues that make me dislike this realm.

    And make me tired, I’m going to sheep.
