You Can Go To the Bank On This Advice

When a guy who lived to be 114 gives advice about how to live a long life, you have to pay attention.

Embrace change; eat two meals a day; work as long as you can; help others, and don’t fear death “because you’re born to die”.

A 31-Word Short Story

31 Words Make a Story

Hmmmm. . .

Maybe this is why I can’t sell the house.

The Queen is Cool

A lot of politicians, world leaders, and SIPs have come and gone, but the Queen endures. Her perspective on life, leadership, and learning is royal and yet down-to-earth and approachable. I couldn’t not watch this short video from start to finish.

Santorini Sunset

Santorini Sunset

It doesn’t get any better than this. On the rim of the caldera on the Greek island of Santorini, June 19, 8:30 in the evening. What I wouldn’t give to be there now.

Bout Dang Time!

Comet McNaught

Finally another comet

Finally, there’s a new comet out there. The photo above was taken by a guy in Austria on June 6. Comet McNaught. Hale-Bopp was pretty cool when it showed up in 1997. My favorite was Comet Hayutake in 1996. I remember looking for it each evening. During that time, I was in Hawaii for a couple of weeks. Hayutake in the Hawaiian sky was pretty amazing. Doubt I’ll ever forget it.

But back to Comet McNaught – here’s a nice little reward for us weirdos who are up at 3:00 in the morning getting ready for work:

“If you want to get a view of the comet, you’ll have to get up early in the morning. Set your alarm clock for at least two hours before sunrise. For most people that will mean around 3:30 a.m. local time. The comet is currently moving through the constellation of Perseus, the Hero, which at that early hour will be low in the northeast part of the sky.”

Okay. You gotta love that.

It’s nearly past it’s prime brightness now, but it’s still visible in the morning sky.
