A little longer video of the sky last night. I had to change some settings to my pi to process it so I lost a few hours.

Very kewl Zoomi!

I've often wondered about posting videos on You Tube. I never have, and probably won't, but suppose you caught a video of something that was useful to an agency like the FAA (plane just before crashing) or the anti-crime authorities (video of a crime taking place). If you publicly post that prior to handing it over, wouldn't you get in trouble for putting evidence out there? Are there good samaritan laws or whistle blower laws that would protect you?

I know if you had the goods on a government agency you would hear black helicopters and have black suburbans pull up in front of your home immediately and would probably never be seen again!

We left the Old Country with nothing more than we could carry and family photos didn't make the cut. I visited there on the Grand Tour after graduation and was able to bring back some shared by extended family. I sat down with the 'rents and we went through them, testing their memories as we identified the who, when, and where. Baby brother has the task of getting them all scanned.... a work still in progress all these years later because life happens.

Getting those old photos scanned is a great idea. It will make them easier to share with others.

Not yet here. It's that wonderful time of year when windows are open 24/7. But these posts are a reminder I need to buy a few spare HVAC filters so clean ones are in there before the system gets fired up and enough are on hand to change out over the winter because.... you know.... supply chain issues and all that.

Neighbors a few miles over have family visiting for the weekend. Got a call asking if they could come over and use my little shooting range. I reckon I ought to take the whacker over and make sure you can see the swingers from the bench. The grass over there is already knee-high again even after having been mowed twice already. Timing is good.... my deer tag opens in a couple weeks so it might be a good idea to make sure the bullet goes where the sights say it will.

Also, I'm glad you reposted your LAST post here. Sorry for flippage just as you were posting. My crystal ball is on the fritz! (You got burned Al! )

I have many old pics of my family from several generations back. Even have a copy of the manifest of the ship that brought my grandparents into the Port of Providence from Italy! The names of most of the families from this neighborhood are there too!

Birds of a feather and all that!

Cool video Szumi!

We enjoyed time with the in-laws yesterday. Missed seeing the Georgia vs Kentucky game, but supported them with red shirt and Dawgs cap. Managed to win both team games of cornhole, then my father-in-law challenged me to a one on one game right before we left. Smoked him at 21-2. I challenged him to another and he couldn’t resist. 21-12 with me coming out on top again. He’s very competitive and I’m surprised that I did so well. I think it’s been about a year since I have played. Got my first 4 for 4 in the hole during that first 21-2 game. Father-in-law was shaking his head. I reassured him that I hadn’t practiced any beforehand. It was great having some time with him.

Cellphone pic…..



Y’all have a great Sunday!!!

Chinese astronauts began Saturday their six-month mission on China's first permanent space station, after successfully docking aboard their spacecraft.

They are the second crew to move into China's Tiangong space station, which was launched last April. The first crew stayed three months.
