Three Stories That Grabbed Me Today

SLASHED, BUT SAFE. ENDEAVOR IS DOWN.

I never cease to be amazed at space travel. This is a picture of the conclusion of a 5,000,000 mile 10 day trip. Blasted into space, Endeavor docked with the International Space Station, accomplished tasks there, then returned with precision, landing exactly at the second that was planned.

Glad you had such a good trip. I’ll be going to your blog to read about it.

Bless you.

My eyes are green. Very green. Hmmmm.

I like the new look of your blog.

I have much reading to get caught up on here and at all the other blogs I visit regularly! πŸ™‚
