The heavens declare the glory of God

Chandler (7) has become interested in stars and constellations we enjoy going outside at night to identify the Big Dipper, etc.

It reminded me of a computer program that my friend, Philip Brown had when we were kids that would show the night sky as it appears on any particular night.

Anyway, I did some searching and found this free program, Stellarium. It is really awesome. I will warn you that my dinosaur computer at home will barely run it, but my computer at work does beautifully.

If you don't know your Latitude/Longitude, go to and put in you town and state and it will return you Lat-Long.

Jerry Falwell

I've found Jerry Falwell so divisive. I've wondered if he wouldn't have been more effective if he didn't come across like a flame-thrower.

As usual, leave it to Keith Drury to have something original to say whether you agree or not...

Fred Thompson vs. Michael Moore

I've been really intrigued by the prospect of a Fred Thompson candidacy for President (other than his support for McCain-Fiengold.)

In addition, I despise most everything about Michael Moore.

Anyway, I loved Thompson's response to a challenge by Moore. See the exchange here as well as Thompson's video response.

Princess Gabrielle

We are in the midst of a week at Grammy's in Texas and of course the dress-up clothes go everywhere. In case you are wondering, that is a tutu skirt being worn as the head-piece.
