Wow that sounds like a great experience camping and an observatory together. Thanks for sharing the link.

Did Pluto come up in the conversation with the astronomer?

"Gosh Toto, I don't think we're in Beverly Beach anymore

2air,

Are you sure you stayed within the speed limits this week?!?

Your spot in Arizona looks interesting. I've never spent much time in astronomy, but this looks like a place to learn a lot.

Glad you were able to be at Beverly Beach III last weekend. BTW, it's rained "a little bit" since you left...3.11 inches yesterday.

A pleasure to meet you - loved the bacon-stuffed mushrooms. Enjoy your travels.

jim

Smile Mercury transit tomorrow (Wed) Nov 8

Here's the NASA link. Starting at 2:12 pm Eastern Mercury will transit in front of the sun. Maybe folks in less cloudy parts of the world will be able to see it using a filtered solar telescope of course!
You folks out west should get a grand show!

Transit of Mercury

Another source: http://www.spaceweather.com/

I think that the Exploratorium link about projecting the image with binoculars is woefully short of warning against looking through binoculars! Just like Airstreaming -- be careful out there.

Good point about safety, there should be more warning info on that NASA site. Since we live in a cloudy area (oh well wouldn't trade the Great Lakes) we'll be watching the Mercury transit webcast courtesy of NASA at 1:30 ET on the computer

Flyfishing

Hitting the road tomorrow, no trailer but a charter bus with a bunch of flyfishing bums. Headed to the San Juan River in north west New Mexico, close to the Four Corners (I like that name). Anyone ever been to Abe's Motel and Fly Shop? I bought my trailer right across from the motel. The PO stored it in a fully enclosed boat locker for around $35 a month. The trip is about 8 hours each way, anyone want to guess how many Airstream's I spot on the trip?

Cookies

2air,

Some time ago, you asked about Girl Scout cookies. They go on sale in February.

who pays off a mortgage anyway...

i love words and their history...

no doubt many know this but i can't resist posting it....

paying off mortgages is a relatively new thing...

does anyone recall old movies
wherein the family would joyfully toss the paid off 'deed' into the fire place?

it was a rare event.

in fact the word literally means 'death pledge' as one promised to paid until their death...

and then the resonsibility passed to the next generation, to continue paying...

getting a mortgage was a BIG deal; paying never stopped and a default resulted in complete ruin...

when a property owner obtained a mortgage, they were commiting all their ancestors to the contract...

wow.

the term deadline also dates to these early mortgages....

but not so bottomline or dotted line...

times sure have changed...

ok,
back to your regular programing dot dot dot
2air'

yes i moved it...goes better here anyway.

ok perhaps it's possible to sign away your childrens wealth...

but what about your parent's estate too?

going back even further a mortgage had nothing to do with buying a house...

when an impoverished heir (the 1st son of a noble) needed cash...

(and a noble was once an english coin!)

he could take out a mortgage...

against his fathers estate (his wealth and stand)...

that's right and no co-signer was needed....

the cash strapped boy just made the promise (death pledge) that..

when dear old dad died, he would pay off the debt with the inheritance...

now that's real collateral! another word related to borrowing in this way.

and the heir was the only one who could do this.

cheers
