Shus,Shus, Cat:  Two secret DMV offices have been revealed, one in California,  and one in North Carolina.  These are for lawmakers and their buddies.  It wouldn’t surprise me if every state had this benefit for our underpaid public servants.

Mexico has almost made once beautiful Acapulco a non destination for tourist, unless you are a rat.

REMEMBER TOMORROW….

I have sent this tribute out to my friends and contacts, every year,  since the terrible tragedy of September 11, 2001. I hope you will forward this post.

 Much like the Kennedy assassination, it was such a shock that people remember where they were when hearing the terrible news. We watched as people jumped to their death rather than be burned alive.

Time has a way of diminishing tragedy and sorrow. In this case, I hope every American remembers 09/11/01. It was such a horrible day for our country.

Nike and the NFL could learn something from this Budweiser Ad about priorities.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Curiosity Vista from Vera Rubin Ridge

Explanation: If you could stand on Mars — what might you see? If you were NASA’s Curiosity rover, just last month you would have seen the view from Vera Rubin Ridge, an intriguing rock-strewn perch on the side of Mount Sharp. In the featured 360-degree panorama, you can spin around and take in the vista from all directions, in many browsers, just by pointing or tilting. In this virtual reality view, many instruments on the rover are labelled, including antennas, the robotic arm, and the radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG). Dark sand and light rock cover the ground nearby in a mixture called lakebed mudstone. Towering Mount Sharp is only barely visible in the distance due to airborne dust from a planet-wide storm just winding down. Among its many discoveries, Curiosity has found that the raw ingredients for life are present on Mars. Next on Mars will be NASA’s Insight, on target to land in late November, which is scheduled to deploy a seismometer to better study the interior of the red planet.
