Spaced Out Sunday

MORNING PLANETS ALIGN: Set your alarm for dawn. Three planets and the crescent Moon are gathering for a beautiful alignment before sunrise. Alan Dyer sends this preview from Gleichen, Alberta:

“This was the view on the morning of Sept. 12th, of Venus, Mercury (then at greatest elongation from the Sun) and Mars in the dawn sky, along with the star Regulus.” says Dyer. “With Earth in the picture, this was an image of all four rocky terrestrial planets in one frame!”

In the mornings ahead, the crescent Moon will join the show, hopping from one planet to the next.  Venus and the Moon will look especially lovely together on Sept. 17th and 18th, while on the 19th and 20th Venus and Regulus pass one another less than 1 degree apart. Look east before sunrise and enjoy the show!

    That guy that was over yesterday. I asked him if he still follow Alex Jones, he said no, but mentioned some other guy he follows. The woman with him said he was really funny. A Jeff something. I googled it w/o a last name and found a conservative yakker, probably the guy our friend was talking about. Another lunatic.

    Troy is one of those who thinks 9/11 was an inside job. After those days he gave us VHS tapes to watch of Alex Jones, in depth descriptions of how it was an inside job. One of the Pentagon and how there was no way a plane flew into it. I’ve never ascribed to the inside job theory. I know you do, Den, but I can’t buy into that. Seems albeit impossible for that to have happened.

    Waiting for company to show up. Bob’s brother and wife from Ohio, Bob’s sister and husband from the other side of Detroit. And our kids. Bob’s brother is bringing Chinese. Every time they come someone brings the chow, and I’ll be eternally thankful for that, for not having to cook.

    I did, however, make my famous Pineapple Dessert.

    Sitting here with an ice-pack on my rt. knee, It’s been throbbing off and on since my salmonella poisoning, they call it reactive arthritis, primarily affects knees and ankles post-poisoning, ugh, could last weeks. Nightmares last night, someone in my dreams shooting people, me trying to get away, cannot find my cycle key, then cannot find my cycle, then cannot find my way out to get away from the shooter, then at 3:30 the veggie pizza I ate for dinner decided it wanted out, twice.

    Shoulda let him shoot me.

      Aww, sorry to hear about your knee, and tossing your pizza. 😦

      As for the dream, I would LOVE a dream like that. Exciting, like an action/adventure movie. As much Walking Dead as I’ve been watching you would think I would have a dream about it, but nope. Unless I just don’t remember it. I rarely remember my dreams so who knows what I’ve been dreaming.

    Had a wonderful day with the family. Bob’s sister who is kind of weird and who is now deaf in one ear and can’t manage to get a hearing aid, was the life of the party. We watched old 8mm films that Jill got transferred to DVDs, had so much fun with that. Bob’s sister was in tears she laughed so hard a couple times because of little jokes her brother Steve made and her laughter made Jill and I die ourselves. Everyone stayed longer than usual. Kathy’s husband always wants to rush her out the door, I could see he wanted to, but he stayed because I think he did it for Kathy. She doesn’t have many good times like she’s had here. It was a wonderful day, I must say.

      Kathy and Ron came in his black Cadillac, one of the fancy ones. Really pretty.

      Bob’s brother came in their black Mercedes, REALLY pretty. Both really expensive cars, but one is a lawyer the other a stockbroker. We really looked good to the neighbors today with those vehicles here, lol.

    I spent the day gimping around, hopped on the bike and rode up town, got some Ginger Ale to quell the squirts, ate a Payday and came back home, took a nap, no bad dreams. The trouble with my dreams is they are very detailed and hugely frustrating, sometimes I can wake myself up but not always like last night, I eventually woke up exhausted.

    Some days you get the elevator, some days you get the shaft.

    Just 21 minutes the shortest way, possible now that the cultural center is finished, to the Tokyo Seoul for sashimi and futu makki, a vegetable roll.
