You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded.
To the question, “Why me?” the cosmos barely bothers to return the reply, “Why not?”

No End to Mid East War


The war won’t end until people quit believing in the fantasy that they will go to heaven when they die.  Hezzbollah hides behind women and children because they die for cause and will be rewarded in heaven.  Hezzbollah won’t accept Jews in the “holy” land.  The Jews won’t leave for similar reasons.  Until there is an end to Christian, Muslim, and Jewish faith in religious fairy tales, there is no way to end this violence.

ISS Observed Over Ben Lomond

Spotted the ISS (International Space Station) tonight. It was chasing the space shuttle Discovery (STS-131) for their docking later. I missed the shuttle... was looking in the wrong direction... :-(

Oh well... it was fun seeing it. Should have let the moon be in the picture also... I could have massaged the image some to bring out the ISS from the moon glow. Posted by Picasa

Young Eagles Over Watsonville

I flew some more Young Eagles last Saturday. EAA Chapter 119 flew around 40. Lots of fun, I enjoy giving rides to these kids. Many want to learn to fly, but others want only a fun ride... no problem, either way is good. Some want some roller coaster type turns, others want straight and level. Only have had a couple get a little queasy. I've flown about 30 kids (not including relatives) so far this year.

I turned 50 last weekend. Holy cow. Had dinner with Mom and Dad, Louise/Les/Charles/Sarah, and friends Mojan/Ali/Mark/Spud. Not least being my lover Liz. :-) Very nice cake, huh? Posted by Picasa

Religion is the root of all evil

Religion is the root of all evil

I have begun to really hate religion. This is from my web page. The book "The End of Faith" is making me think more about this.

End Faith, Embrace Reason.
