Shmily

 
Shmily
(By Laura Jeanne Allen)
 
My grandparents were married for over half a century, and played their own special game from the time they had met each other. The goal of their game was to write the word "shmily" in a surprise place for the other to find. They took turns leaving "shmily" around the house, and as soon as one of them discovered it, it was their turn to hide it once more.
 
They dragged "shmily" with their fingers through the sugar and flour containers to await whoever was preparing the next meal. They smeared it in the dew on the windows overlooking the patio where my grandma always fed us warm, homemade pudding with blue food coloring. "Shmily" was written in the steam left on the mirror after a hot shower, where it would reappear bath after bath. At one point, my grandmother even unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper to leave "shmily" on the very last sheet.
 
There was no end to the places "shmily" would pop up. Little notes with "shmily" scribbled hurriedly were found on dashboards and car seats, or taped to steering wheels. The notes were stuffed inside shoes and left under pillows. "Shmily" was written in the dust upon the mantel and traced in the ashes of the fireplace. This mysterious word was as much a part of my grandparents' house as the furniture.
 
It took me a long time before I was able to fully appreciate my grandparents' game. Skepticism has kept me from believing in true love-one that is pure and enduring. However, I never doubted my grandparents' relationship. They had love down pat. It was more than their flirtatious little games; it was a way of life. Their relationship was based on a devotion and passionate affection which not everyone is able to experience.
 
Grandma and Grandpa held hands every chance they could. They stole kisses as they bumped into each other in their tiny kitchen. They finished each other's sentences and shared the daily crossword puzzle and word jumble. My grandma whispered to me about how cute my grandpa was, how handsome and old he had grown to be. She claimed that she really knew "how to pick 'em." Before every meal they bowed their heads and gave thanks, marveling at their blessings: a wonderful family, good fortune, and each other.
 
But there was a dark cloud in my grandparents' life: my grandmother had breast cancer. The disease had first appeared ten years earlier. As always, Grandpa was with her every step of the way. He comforted her in their yellow room, painted that way so that she could always be surrounded by sunshine, even when she was too sick to go outside.
 
Now the cancer was again attacking her body. With the help of a cane and my grandfather's steady hand, they went to church every morning. But my grandmother grew steadily weaker until, finally, she could not leave the house anymore. For a while, Grandpa would go to church alone, praying to God to watch over his wife. Then one day, what we all dreaded finally happened.
 
Grandma was gone.
 
"Shmily." It was scrawled in yellow on the pink ribbons of my grandmother's funeral bouquet. As the crowd thinned and the last mourners turned to leave, my aunts, uncles, cousins and other family members came forward and gathered around Grandma one last time. Grandpa stepped up to my grandmother's casket and, taking a shaky breath, he began to sing to her. Through his tears and grief, the song came, a deep and throaty lullaby.
 
Shaking with my own sorrow, I will never forget that moment. For I knew that, although I couldn't begin to fathom the depth of their love, I had been privileged to witness its unmatched beauty.
 
S-h-m-i-l-y: See How Much I Love You.
 

Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa, for letting me see.

Remembering Apollo - man's 1st step on the moon - Part 2


Arriving and entering into Lunar orbit.
Seen below are craters Sabine and Ritter, and mountains stretching back to the horizon on July 19th, 1969.
craters_sabine_and_ritter.jpg


Looking down at the Command and Service Module (center), with the Moon's surface below, as seen from the now-separated Lunar Module (LM), on its way to the surface.
The proiminent crater is Schmidt crater.
This is the last photo taken from the LM prior to the powered descent, and eventually the landing one orbit later.

Television footage of the first human footstep on Lunar soil on July 20, 1969.
Astronaut Neil Armstrong took these first steps, followed shortly by Buzz Aldrin.
This is a reproduction of the television image that was transmitted to the world on July 20th, 1969.

A close-up view of astronaut Buzz Aldrin's boot and bootprint in the lunar soil, photographed with a 70mm lunar surface camera during the Apollo 11 lunar surface extravehicular activity (EVA) on July 20th, 1969.

Buzz Aldrin took this picture of Neil Armstrong in the cabin after the completion of the first EVA.
This is the face of the first man to set foot on the Moon, just hours earlier, on July 20th, 1969.
Neil_Armstrong_in_cabin.jpg


From Wikipedia contributor Rufus330Ci: "This is a picture of my mother holding the Washington News Paper on Monday, July 21st 1969 stating 'The Eagle Has Landed Two Men Walk on the Moon'. The photo was taken by my grandfather Jack Weir (1928-2005)" 
Girl_reading_paper.jpg


During their 2 1/2 hour EVA, Astronauts deployed a number of science experiments.
 Here, Buzz Aldrin is seen carrying the Laser Ranging Retroreflector Experiment (LRRR) and a seismometer to measure Moonquakes.

Close-up of the north footpad of the Lunar Module, with some lunar soil piled up beneath, evidence of a tiny amount of drift during the landing.

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, photographed by Neil Armstrong (visible in reflection).
Buzz Aldrin: "As I walked away from the Eagle Lunar Module, Neil said 'Hold it, Buzz', so I stopped and turned around, and then he took what has become known as the 'Visor' photo.
I like this photo because it captures the moment of a solitary human figure against the horizon of the Moon, along with a reflection in my helmet's visor of our home away from home, the Eagle, and of Neil snapping the photo. Here we were, farther away from the rest of humanity than any two humans had ever ventured.
Yet, in another sense, we became inextricably connected to the hundreds of millions watching us more than 240,000 miles away.
In this one moment, the world came together in peace for all mankind." (quoted with permission from Apollo Through the Eyes of the Astronauts).
visor_photo.jpg


Post-deployment documentation photo of the Laser Ranging Retroreflector Experiment (LRRR).
 For the past 40 years, the retroreflectors were used in conjunction with a dedicated facility at the McDondald Observatory in Texas to accurately measure the distance to the Moon.
These experiments discovered, among other things, that the moon is moving away from Earth at a rate of 2.5 inches per year.
 The National Science Foundation recently terminated funding for the McDonald Laser ranging station, with continued measuements to be made by two other facilities.

After lifting off from the Moon, Eagle approaches the Command Module during rendezvous.
Astronaut Michael Collins, who remained on board the Command Module for the entire trip, remembers taking this photograph: "Little by little, they grew closer, steady, as if on rails, and I thought 'What a beautiful sight,'one that had to be recorded.
As I reached for my Hasselblad, suddenly the Earth popped up over the horizon, directly behind Eagle.
 I could not have staged it any better, but the alignment was not of my doing, just a happy coincidence.
 I suspect a lot of good photography is like that, some serendipitous happenstance beyond the control of the photographer.
 But at any rate, as I clicked away, I realized that for the first time, in one frame, appeared three billion earthlings, two explorers, and one moon.
The photographer, of course, was discreetly out of view." (quoted with permission from Apollo Through the Eyes of the Astronauts)
lift_off_from_the_moon.jpg

This view of the whole full moon was photographed from the Apollo 11 spacecraft during its trans-Earth journey homeward.
When this picture was taken, the spacecraft was already 10,000 nautical miles away, on July 21st, 1969.

Dropping by to say Hi.jpg

 



Dropping by to say Hi!

 
Just dropping by so say hello

And wish you a very nice day

I hope you are blessed by the Lord

In everything that you may pray

 

I wish you peace and happiness

I wish you lost of luck and joy

I wish for you the gift of friends

Who your truly can always adore

 

I wish for you lots of wealth

I wish you good health too

But most of all I wish for you

To know God the way that I do

 

I wish you to have Him in your heart

And that you know the peace  and love

That you can only experience, my friend

From our dear Father in Heaven above

The advantages of living over 50

 

Advantages of living after 50! 

 Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't laugh.....it is all true...

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!

01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

 

02.. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first. 

 

03. No one expects you to run--anywhere.

 

04. People call at 9 pm and ask,"did I wake you?"

 

05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

 

06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

 

07. Things you buy now won't wear out.

 

08. You can eat supper at 4 pm. 

 

09. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

 

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

 

11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

 

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room. 

 

13. You sing along with elevator music.

 

14.  Your eyes won't get much worse.

 

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off. 

 

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

 

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

 

18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size. 

 

19. You can't remember who sent you this list.

 

20.And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

 

Forward this to every one you can remember right now!Before you forget...

 

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Smullekker Pampoentert

 

SMULLEKKER PAMPOENTERT                        
                         
Klits saam:                        
125 g margarien                        
200 ml suiker                        
3 eiers                        
Sif saam en voeg by eerste mengsel:                        
250 ml koekmeelblom                        
15 ml bakpoeier                        
2 ml sout                        
Voeg by boonste mengsel:                        
3 koppies koue, gaar pampoen                        
1 t vanilla                        
                         
Plaas in glasbak en bak vir 40 minute teen 190 grade C.                        
                         
Sous:                        
1 koppie suiker                        
1 t vanilla                        
3 eetl margarien                        
1 blik Ideal melk                        
Kook die sous vir 5 minute en giet oor die warm tert sodra                        
dit uit die oond kom. 
                      
Wenk: 
     Gebruik 'n droë pampoen soos botterskorsie of hubbard.                   
     As die pampoen baie waterig is, laat dit eers deur 'n sif                   
     drup om die oortollige water te skei.  Ek het dit ook met                   
     soetpatat gemaak en uitstekende resultate behaal.                   

Dankie Ronel vir die resep

Cultivate a friendship


                  

                    Cultivate a friendship
                    As you do a garden bed;
                    Nourish, feed and watch it grow,
                    With help and nice things said.


                    Smile, it's like the sunshine
                    Needed for the flowers,
                    Loving hands to tend and care,
                    Soft rains and sun-filled hours.


                    Little hurts are like weeds,
                    That come between the rows;
                    Pull and cast them out before
                    The beautiful friendship goes.


                    Be proud of your well tended garden,
                    And proud of a good friend too,
                    All the work you put into them
                    Will come straight back to you.


                    Don't neglect your garden,
                    Or the good friends that you know,
                    Don't let a single day go by,
                    Keep trying, both will grow.

Volcano eruption from space

In the northwest Pacific Ocean, the Oyashio Current flows down out of the Arctic, past Siberia and the Kamchatka Peninsula. Around the latitude of Japan's Hokkaido Island, it begins to veer eastward and converges with the warmer Kuroshio Current. This image from NASA's Aqua satellite,  shows how the convergence of these two currents affects blue-green swirls of phytoplankton floating in the sea.

St. Helena, located in the South Atlantic Ocean, was one of the many isolated islands that naturalist Charles Darwin visited during his scientific voyages in the nineteenth century. This image of St. Helena was acquired by astronauts onboard the international space station, an effort to document current biodiversity in the areas Darwin visited. Before Darwin's day, St. Helena was where an exiled Napoleon Bonaparte spent the last years of his life.

Take me home.

The space shuttle Atlantis takes a piggyback ride back home to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on June 2, on top of a modified Boeing 747 jet. The $1.8 million cross-country trip was required because Atlantis landed in California at the end of its flight to fix the Hubble Space Telescope.
