Dodging the Roadkill: Cruising the Interstate

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I started my journey, I remember the first time I took my Harley for a ride down the Interstate.

Wow!  This is REALLY fast!

I remember I was somewhat intimidated by all the traffic, the trucks and at times, the road debris.  My Street Glide Special was solid as a rock, purred like a kitten, and handled the turbulence of the 18 wheelers.  What I was most concerned about was, I wasn’t as “diligent” at keeping an eye on my rear view mirrors, so the passing vehicle that I hadn’t noticed, caused me a bit of a scare.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators, Pittsburgh Penguins Game One

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators walked onto the national sports stage in Pittsburgh last night for game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They outplayed the defending champions, but lost the game.

I’m encouraged by their play and not too disappointed over the loss. What I AM disappointed about is mistakes. Stupid mistakes.

First, the referees. The reversed call on the Predator’s first goal was a bogus decision. We all watched it. We all saw the replay. Clearly there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the decision on the ice which was a “good” goal. That changed the momentum of the game.

NASA provides Instructions for Eye Safety During a Total Solar Eclipse

 

NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – It is never safe to look directly at the sun’s rays – even if the sun is partly obscured. When watching a partial eclipse you must wear eclipse glasses at all times if you want to face the sun, or use an alternate indirect method. This also applies during a total eclipse up until the time when the sun is completely and totally blocked. 

During the short time when the moon completely obscures the sun – known as the period of totality – it is safe to look directly at the star, but it’s crucial that you know when to take off and put back on your glasses.
