A Roving Reporter Tour

Dark Skies In Bon Accord
RR writes, “A friend and I went to Bon Accord Saturday It was very well attended, probably 2 - 3 times as many people as last year. We attended the talk about Geo-cashing, sounds like a fun, cheap out door activity for people of all ages. We looked through some of the telescope which folks had brought along. Watched the Bubble Soccer and of course listened to Chris Hatfield. His talk was incredible, it was geared to appeal to everyone from school kids to adults. Weather cooperated no rain, no clouds, a bit cool after sunset. It was a bit too windy aloft for them to be able to set the rockets off safely.

Whatzit? A representative of the golden buprestid
family of insect. This one is especially attractive because of the gold
iridescence. Many are not as attractive, although still interesting.

Humour In The Marble Garden

Humour In The Marble Garden
A truly Happy Person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour and, one who can enjoy browsing old cemeteries. Some fascinating things on old tombstones:

In a Silver City, Nevada, cemetery:

Here lays The Kid,
We planted him raw.
He was quick on the trigger,
But slow on the draw.



A roundup of bits from the web.

* Unraveling the mysteries of great white sharks.

* Keep dreaming if you think you’re retiring in your 60s.
