Tonight will be a great opportunity to see Venus and Jupiter converging. You do not even have to stay up late, just go outside and look for the two brightest stars in the sky, and you will be surprised to know that they are not stars but planets. Jupiter and Venus!

You even have to be careful on your mobile devices…no one can really be free from hackers. Only way is to stay off the Internet! If you have one of these new phones it maybe a good idea to remove this app!
Everyone has internet at home, everyone has desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones! Everyone hears this word “Cloud”, but does everyone know how to secure those devices from touching the cloud? Do you know how your devices really work? I don’t mean just knowing how to connect your device to the internet or being able to send a text or an email!
Do you know how the devices that your children are using work? I know that we are all pretty bad about this and joke about “No one understanding the cloud!” but maybe it is about time we do learn about the cloud, or the devices that we use every day! The devices that we say our entire life is on! Our contacts, our pictures and videos our correspondence! We should learn about stronger passwords and what our devices are actually connecting too!
Three days and counting! In three days I will start to post the photos and some of the writing from my Ride About!
So for those that do not know, on the 17th of May 2013 I took a trip, a walk about, what I ended up calling a Ride About! It started as a trip and ended up being a journey! I packed some saddlebags, my Camelbak and a tank bag, loaded them up on Bonnie (my motorcycle) and headed out! No real place to go, just a direction and following the wind wherever it took me! And took me it did to some amazing places! A retrospective on the past twelve months! It will be more clear to you later as you follow along!
So this gallery is dedicated to the photos that are captured on my phone, by my phone, and don’t get to see the light of day! Images are as is, no post processing, the world as I see it or have captured it via my mobile device! If you are in a photo and would like to be removed just let me know! And you will be removed – Thank you! That is all!
What’s he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is call’d the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian.’
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.’
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.
Well September 25, 2010 is coming up soon and once again Smithsonian Media is hosting it’s 6th annual event, Museum Day.
Museums across the country open their doors for free to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket. The Museum Day Ticket provides free admission to one person, plus a guest. As with everything “Free” there are some catches:
One ticket per household
A ticket will gain entry in only one museum and only participating museums
Only an official Museum Day ticket is eligible for free entry.
So visit Smithsonian website for more details. Even though it is only one person and guest per ticket, take the kids and pay for them, the kids tickets are always cheaper than the adult tickets! LOL.
