Dodging the Roadkill: My Motorcycle, My Music, My Memories

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve posted many articles about how much I LOVE to ride alone.  I’m not anti-social, and I love riding with my “buds” but I ABSOLUTELY love the solitude of just me and the open road.

And deep down inside, so do you.

I’m an early morning rider.  I will get up and hit my favorite coffee shop, then take off for a couple of hours.  I’m also a HUGE music lover.  Forty years on the radio will do that to you.  I have a thumb drive filled with the music of my life.

I was living in Europe as a young man when the Beatles and the great British Invasion landed, so, my music is VERY important to me. Now my motorcycle and my music are helping me relive my life, one song at a time.

NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope to be turned off January 30th, 2020

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – On January 30th, 2020, NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope will be switched off permanently  after nearly 16 years of exploring the cosmos in infrared light. By then, the spacecraft will have operated for more than 11 years beyond its prime mission, thanks to the Spitzer engineering team’s ability to address unique challenges as the telescope slips farther and farther from Earth.

Managed and operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, Spitzer is a small but transformational observatory. It captures infrared light, which is often emitted by “warm” objects that aren’t quite hot enough to radiate visible light.
