This YouTube video provides a GOOD introduction.


This YouTube video is just plain COOL.

This is pretty neat. A tiny spacecraft, the size of a loaf of bread, powered by a Solar Sail — yes, powered by sunlight, but not in terms of solar energy per se.

It is set to launch soon — maybe in the next few weeks. So, keep an eye on the news. I will try to keep you posted.

Oh How I Wish John McCain Had Donated His Body To Science.

I have never understood WHY people want to be buried, cremated or fed to the vultures. To I, donating your body to science makes so much more sense.

In this post, from October 2013, I detail how my adoptive grandfather served as the inspiration for this. He was quite the man.

Yes, John McCain has given to others more than most.

But, I wonder if he ever thought about this. It would have been such a GREAT final flourish. His last act of heroism. And he would have been such an example. People would have taken notice.

I would not expect it from Aretha Franklin, of the gaudy, tacky Golden casket. She was an exceptional talent, but I am not sure whether anybody has used ‘cerebral’ as an adjective related to her.

Anywho …

Please think about this. It is painless. That I can promise you.

Thank YOU.
