(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 p…

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.

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.

The advantages of living over 50

Advantages of living after 50!  Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't 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 r…

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, b…

Volcano eruption from space

Clouds of steam and ash rise from Sarychev Volcano in Russia's Kuril Islands,northeast of Japan, during an early stage of eruption on June 12. This rare view was captured in a photograph taken from the international space station.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.A false-color image from the high-resolution camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveals variations in the composition of clay and sulfate-bearing rocks in Gale Crater on the Red Planet. Gale Crater is one of the potential landing sites being considered for NASA's Curiosity rover, which is due for launch in 2011. St. Helena, located in the …

Panda's Day

Oops! Slight miscalculation.

You go. I'll just stay here and rest my head a little bit.

It wasn't me! I didn't steal this bamboo shoot! It was just sitting here, I swear it!

Pardon me but do you have a napkin?

Damn paparazzi! Could we have a little privacy please?

Dear Martha Stewart: I have this brown stain on my nice, white, fluffy butt...

Shhhh! I'm reviewing...

I cannot believe that I'm stuck in this tree again. What is the matter with me?

I'm sure there's a way out somewhere. I saw an ant go this way yesterday.

Forgive me Father, for I have sinned...
