How stupid can you get ?  New York’s governor has hired people with little experience who spent one hour evaluating the problem to repair a transit tunnel.  HE CALLS IT INNOVATIVE THINKING.

This applies to most of the politicians on CNN or MSNBC.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Stars, Meteors, and a Comet in Taurus

Explanation: This was an unusual night to look in the direction of the Bull. The constellation Taurus is always well known for hosting two bright star clusters — the Pleaides, visible on the right, and the comparatively diffuse Hyades, visible on the left. This night last month, however, was atypically the peak of the Geminid meteor shower, and so several meteors were caught shooting through the constellation with parallel trails. More unusually still, Comet Wirtanen was drifting through the constellation, here appearing near the image bottom surrounded by a greenish coma. The comet was near its brightest as it sped past the Earth. The orange star on the upper left is Aldebaran, considered to be the eye of the Bull. Aldebaran is the brightest star in Taurus and the 15th brightest star in the sky. The featured image is a combination of nearly 800 exposures taken from the Spanish village Albanyà.

Tomorrow’s picture: high energy sky

There are two days in Life that we should NEVER worry about

Image result for tolleystopics.com

One is Yesterday
with its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday.
We cannot undo a single act we performed.
Nor can we erase a single word we said.

The other day we shouldn’t worry about is Tomorrow
with its impossible adversaries, its burden,
its hopeful promise and poor performance.
Tomorrow is beyond our control.
Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendor
or behind a mask of clouds – but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.

This leaves only one day – Today.
Any person can fight the battles of just one day.
It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow
that we break down.
The experience of today doesn’t drive people mad –
it is the remorse of bitterness for something
which happened yesterday,
and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.

Let us therefore live one day at a time!
