Hey BVB, I still have those Photoshopped creations that you sent me six and a half years ago for my 80th. They are on the wall in my office and I cherish them.

first day back to work in a month, can't sleep. doing a little reading here, been awhile since I stopped in. yg reminiscing, and marty also. :-) I still have a ceramic from marty from years ago, enjoy it all the time driving,"hanging from my mirror". on my third edition of playa, was two decades younger when I started this journey with my Sweetie. so many great memories. and a few sad ones too. raises a warm glass of milk and make a turkey sandwich. heres to a good nights sleep, I hope :-)

Hiya GH! nice to seeya drop in!
wow, 20 years of TTITD. You've really seen some changes!
Marty sure makes some beautiful ceramics. I have a couple of wonderful items, at I too, cherish them.
And your "stones".....so cool to watch you make them with that lens, melting playa dust using just the sun, into a gleaming black stone, and the gift you give with them, adding ashes or whatever to the mix for folks.

Just stopping by for a quick glass of wine. WOW! Retirement is so tiring. It's all Burning Man. All the time. Meetings, events, new friends, parties. How do people get bored? All I wanted was my new shed and that hasn't happened yet. I'll just pour myself a glass of white to go. Later Tater...........

Good morning all! I hardly ever look at the spam that rolls through here, but I couldn't help but notice the weight loss solution that suggested that I should "accost my wideness"

Now if I only knew what "Grant flavor in your plank" means, but I think I'm probably better off not knowing.

All is well here.
Just a heads-up. The Geminid meteor shower is this Thursday evening/Friday morning, for those interested and willing to brave the cold.

HI BVB!
is it true meteor showers are best observed around and after midnight? I get conflicting opinions from folks.

yeah....every time I read about an upcoming meteor shower, they use superlatives about the magnitude......I set outside, freeze and see not much....but, to be fair, if they say it evert time, sooner or later "they" will be right! and say "see, we predicted it!"........

Yep, the way I understand it, as a general rule, you'll see more meteors as the night goes on. It has to do with the earth's rotation bringing your particular position around so that you are facing the leftover comet dust and debris field head on. Because of the natural orientation of the earth and it's orbit around the sun, it turns out that just before sunrise is the time when anyone's specific location on earth has swung around to the most forward facing position with respect to the comet MOOP field that we are intersecting at the time. If you could see meteors after daybreak, you'd see just about as many as before, until around noon, when you've rotated away from hitting them head on, and another part of the earth west of you is fully exposed to them.

The nice thing about going out and viewing them around midnight or a little after, (and theoretically around noon if it weren't for the fact that daylight overwhelms them) is that your particular location is running through the comet MOOP field at an oblique angle at that time, and any debris that does happen to get sideswiped by the earth and it's atmosphere at that time you'll be seeing from a side view, and they are likely to reveal much longer tails, which is very cool, and often the most bright and colorful. Those would be your so-called 'earth grazers'.

I imagine there are other factors that play a part in all of this, such as the tilt of the earth's axis and your latitude, and the motion and varying density of the debris field itself, among others.

..and yes indeed, gotta have clear skies to see it!

Thanks yg.

A slight correction: the debris that we are passing through now was shed from an asteroid, not a comet. However, some of the other meteor showers throughout the year involve debris shed from comets. Overall, the effects are about the same.

I'm not sure how they try to determine if it is going to be a good year or a sparse one, but it certainly seems like an inexact science so far.


Looks like it's getting cloudy here, dang it.

There's certainly no way to predict how many people will look up the correct time and be out there looking.


And...
Xmas is coming.

I don't know about a pony, but my brother-in-law was just offered four donkeys. He contacted a religious farm with several home-stay cabins to see if they'd like them. Apparently they're good to have, with spares, for the xmas pagent; but were already gone to another home.

well BVB... I stood tall at midnight, just like in the drawing....saw nothing so went horizontal until 6 am, stood again, and it's overcast......I guess meteor showers are just something I can't quite get right...
