More fun stuff coming :)
We are exploring the universe with the telescope I purchased in June,
Jim made a temporary balanced landing, getting more lenses.

Birds for now, before the eggs (I feed them well), nummy!
Got a great recipe book. Plan to put a video on here somehow, they are so much fun! Now we
have "Rooster Cogborn" along with the ladies, Monie, Polly, Angel, Helen, Leenie, Lu,
Frances, & Techla. Cannot forget Puddy & Tommy our cats (Puddy/miss Kadido, can stay inside sometimes)
and of course we can never forget Molley our dog. I'll be updating again soon, but for now....

Moon walk

The Latrel Valley, shown in the picture, was the last of 17 moon landings of the Apollo missions.  Harrison Schmitt was the only scientist sent to the moon by NASA.  He had a doctorate in geology and his specialty was lunar geology.  He spent 3 days exploring parts of this valley.  It was a special location because  it had exposed rocks of 3 different impact events exposed by means of debris slides.  This encouraged me to transport our "Earthship " to this location.  We accomplished this by means of gravitational lensing and using an application of relativistic propulsion.  The picture at right shows our hiking route.  Jim wrote a poem about our hike:

-280+260 Fahrenheit such bright white light towards the mountains buried secrets, forever our hearts quicken raining moon dust we move on oh so slow in 2 dimensions, psychologies arrow points to nothing, there's nothing out there just the moon and us that's all

for visiting my site!

All of life comes to me with ease, joy and glory!
