Island Cat:   We have some new inspirational messages.

The Editor:   Maybe you could refresh your story for our new loyal readers ?

Slogan/Message Cat:   We bought or borrowed some great slogans/mottos that weren’t being used.  The previous ones were ” Live Free or Die “, from New Hampshire, they are Communist now.   Another one was retired from an old Atlanta newspaper,  ” Covers Dixie Like the Dew. ”  They are ashamed of not living in NY.  Another great acquisition was ” Made in the USA “, Amigo found it at a yard sale.

The Editor:   What some great Americana Treasures, do you have any new ones ?

S/M C:  We got this one from an old poster, it is from the ” olden days ” when the government needed citizens–those days will return.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Arp 81: 100 Million Years Later
Image Credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, ESA, NASA; Processing Martin Pugh

Explanation: From planet Earth, we see this strongly distorted pair of galaxies, cataloged as Arp 81, as they were only about 100 million years after their close encounter. The havoc wreaked by their mutual gravitational interaction during the encounter is detailed in this color composite image showing twisted streams of gas and dust, a chaos of massive star formation, and a tidal tail stretching for 200 thousand light-years or so as it sweeps behind the cosmic wreckage. Also known as NGC 6622 (left) and NGC 6621, the galaxies are roughly equal in size but are destined to merge into one large galaxy in the distant future, making repeated approaches until they finally coalesce. Located in the constellation Draco, the galaxies are 280 million light-years away. Even more distant background galaxies can be spotted in this sharp, reprocessed, image from Hubble Legacy Archive data.

The Editor:  Is anything new, Lois ?

Reporter Cat:  Not much, GM has an older cover up which has surfaced.

I think the NHTSB is in league with GM to kill all of their customers, and give their homes to illegal aliens.

The Editor:  Is there anything new about the ferry boat captain ?

Nautical Cat:  Not much, they have arrested everyone who wasn’t drowned.

The Editor:  Did the Chinese and Ruskies have any comments, NC ?

Coral Reef Cat:  They said that they were going to glue some Coral on their mines, it makes them invisible.
