Space Oddities – 07.28.2017:  NASA and Eclipse 2017

In case you haven’t heard, August 21st is going to be a totally awesome day!

It is the day of the ECLIPSE OF THE SUN!!  Depending on where you are, it will either be partial or total.

NASA of course, has started a countdown.  Click here for links to the SCIENCE and SAFETY of this incredible event!

And speaking of countdowns, just ’cause it’s Friday, here’s 80s hair band Europe.   🙂

 

 

A big thanks to Candy of Sew Geek Mama for nominating me for Versatile Blogger Award.   We just recently started following each other.  You just have to see her picture on her about page (the site’s link above) to see why we just might have a few things in common.  🙂    Check out her site and the other nominees!

Click the link below for my previous post, including a brief description about Canada’s involvement in space exploration.

So, the people across the street and two doors down have put THEIR house up for sale…coincidentally, a week after we put OURS on the market.  Seriously, dudes. They’re having an open house this Saturday and I intend to swing by, posing as a potential buyer.  At some point, when it’s at its most crowded, I will casually (and loudly) note: “Hey, for just a little more money, you can get the much nicer house up the block.  It’s bigger, brighter, and NOT HAUNTED!”.
