Sunday Jackson's Birthday. Jackson is my nephew. Today I made him a Birthday Book. I got the idea from a segment on my favorite morning show. It is a Birthday Book that you have guests sign for his birthday every year.

This is the front cover. The paper was actually 12x12 that I cut to size. Then I had to move the "day" back onto the book because it was off the page.

On Saturday we plan to go to the Hill Air Force Museum, so I put these planes on the first page. Dell and Trish will sign this page too. Just think, when he is old like me, he will have a copy of the handwriting of all of the people who are dear to him.

THis is a picture of Meteor, which is a children's show. It is the theme of his Birthday party this year so I could not pass up putting in this page. Now there is a page for all of his friends to "sign".

Hand of God

This is a photo I pulled off the nasa website. Here is the location:

Can anyone say "Hand of God"?

A Young Pulsar Shows Its Hand
A small, dense object only 12 miles in diameter is responsible for this beautiful X-ray nebula that spans 150 light years. At the center of this image made by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is a very young and powerful pulsar, known as PSR B1509-58, or B1509 for short. The pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star which is spewing energy out into the space around it to create complex and intriguing structures, including one that resembles a large cosmic hand.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Don't plant that seed

I am sitting here....
At my desk
Wondering just why
I do what I do.

I hate that the games
waste my day
but here I sit
Sore hand and all

But if I leave
This little room
there is so much work
That needs to be done

So I sit and I sit
But it won't go away I
don't worry a bit
Cause I know it will stay.

My job is my job
It waits just for me
No one else cares
If it let it be

Until someone comes
Then we rush about c
leaning this and clearing that
without any doubt

But the seed always remains
To start over again
And Grandma warned me

Is Winter Gone??

The grass is green
but the sky is gray
what will happen
during this day.

The dishes are dirty
and so is the floor
I'm at the computer
Thinking of more.....

Of things to do
besides housework
Cause that's no fun
I could go bezerk

So you go have fun, okay

Winter is not gone

The Grass is green
The sky was blue
The day was warm
But what else is new.

And I went away
Just for the day
Oh, how wonderful
The FaBric StoRe...

And home again
Sky is gray
Wind is blowing
It just could not last

The weather predicts
more snow tonight
To make the week
Quite a fright...

So I hold up in the house
Turn the furnace on HIGH
And hope against hope.
To pass this night

Winter is not gone

It snowed again. There are blue skies and about 2 inches of snow in my front yard.

I would show you a picture of today, but I cannot locate the cord to my camera and I do not have the driver for the camera with a cord.

So, That's Live.

I am stuck in the house. In the snow.


Here is my front yard.


And here is my car.

And the street.

And the beautiful blue sky.

Hope Springs Eternal.

Spring will come
sooner or later.
