NORAD begins tracking Santa Claus Christmas Eve

 

Norad Tracks SantaPeterson Air Force Base, CO – For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight.

The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.”

The North American Aerospace Defense Command based at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., will again track Santa Claus on his annual Christmas Eve flight to deliver presents to children around the globe. (Courtesy graphic)

Wait to Shop on Christmas Eve? What a Concept!

 

Christmas PresentsClarksville, TN – When I returned home late in the afternoon, I collapsed on the couch and announced that I was exhausted from shopping for Christmas.

“Your problem is that you didn’t wait until Christmas Eve to shop,” my dear husband responded.

His comment boggled my imagination. I could just see what kind of Christmas we’d have if I waited until Christmas Eve to begin.

Shopping on Christmas Eve.

Shopping on Christmas Eve.

Former Clarksville journalist Tim Ghianni pens a “Shoebox Full of Toads”

Clarksville, TN – What does a son say to his mother as he watches her dying for the third time?

Well, maybe technically the second time. The third time was an extension of the second, that second being when her soul left her. He was down the hospital hall then, minutes away. His dad told him about it, and a nurse backed up the story of the bright, white sunrise filling the hospital room, encircling her face, providing a halo. “It was her soul leaving her,” his dad told him as they looked at his mother, barely clinging to life. “I saw the light,” his dad said.

His mother had seen the light, too, a few months earlier, the first time she died. She told him about it. «Read the rest of this article»


Salon 615: It’s All About “The Voice”

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/Writer Nashville, TN – I’ve discovered another benefit of urban living in Downtown, Nashville: very cool neighbors.  Of course there are musicians and songwriters everywhere, and so when I passed my neighbor’s door and often heard him belting out classic rock tunes, I took him to be a touring musician who fronted a band.

I don’t know if what sealed that estimation was helped by the fact that he had long rocker-worthy hair, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt most days, and had this distinctively mellow yet baritone voice when he spoke going up and down on the elevator.

NASA’s AIM spacecraft examines Electric Blue Clouds forming over Antarctica

 

Written by Dr. Tony Phillips
Science at NASA

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Data from NASA’s AIM spacecraft show that noctilucent clouds are like a great “geophysical light bulb.” They turn on every year in late spring, reaching almost full intensity over a period of no more than 5 to 10 days.

News flash: The bulb is glowing.

As December unfolds, a vast bank of noctilucent clouds is blanketing Antarctica. It started on November 20th as a tiny puff of electric-blue and quickly expanded to overlie nearly the entire continent. AIM is monitoring the progress of the clouds as they swirl and ripple around the south pole.
