Lacking Christmas Presence

 

Christmas TreeI decided to hold off on writing anything lately.  For one, I’ve been extremely busy with helping to prepare the opening of Zack & Heather Gates’ next LASATERS® location in Cleveland, TN.

Secondly, every time I think of writing, I draw a blank – not just a blank, but a not-getting-a-single-thing-to-write-about, blank. I think, that now, I know why… it’s Christmas… kind of.

For over the past month I’ve been traveling to Cleveland each week for 3-4 days at a time. I’ve been working with Zack (and sometimes my oldest son, Joriah) on his store build out; the cabinetry, the pergola-styled booth seating, the counter tops, administrative stuff to prep for opening, and what feels like a million other things. «Read the rest of this article»

NASA’s Ebb and Flow spacecraft on final decent to Moon Impact

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – The lunar twins of NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission have each completed a rocket burn that has sealed their fate. The burns modified the orbit of the formation-flying spacecraft.

Over the next three days, this new orbit will carry the twins lower and lower over the moon’s surface. On Monday afternoon, December 17th, at about 2:28pm PST (5:28pm EST), their moon-skimming will conclude when a portion of the lunar surface – an unnamed mountain near the natural satellite’s north pole – rises higher than their orbital altitude.
