Sunny Side UP

I am a little tardy posting today, with the holiday’s and all, life has become somewhat hectic here lately.  Weather moved in and it got much colder, my old bones are a creaking in the night wind, and I am slow in the mornings.  Have a little hitch in my giddy-up and I am finding parts of my body are waking up at different times.

A lot of discussion this week about the lunar event, where the moon got in the way of the sun, or it entered into the earth’s shadow, or something like that happened.  I did not see it, it was not for lack of clear sky, we had an open sky that night as I remember, it was just that I missed it.  I used to say I got stoned and I  missed it, but the truth of the matter is, “I just didn’t give it a lot of attention.”  They tell me that briefly the moon turned red as it eclipsed.  I have heard the expression “once in a blue moon” but sadly never heard anything about a red one.

So my thoughts this morning, as scattered and fragmented as they might be, are on the heaven’s, celestial bodies.

Space the final frontier … Uh very funny Scotty … Now beam down our clothes!

A Spanish woman has  filed papers staking an official legal claim to the sun.  Angeles Duran, 49 years old, states in notarized documents she is now the official “owner of the sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the center of the solar system, at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometers.

Duran now wants to impose a reasonable fee for usage of the sun’s rays, with proceeds split between the Spanish governfment, the worlds’ poor, and herself.  “Anyone else could have done it,” says Duran.  “It simply occurred to me first.”

At first I thought this is ridiculous, then I got to thinking about all those people in Washington DC our elected hodge-podge of nimrods, who are so far in the dark, they need sunlight pumped into them each day.  If they had thought of this first, instead of Ms. Duran we would all be paying some kind of new sunlight tax.

She has for most intents and purposes saved our bacon here in the United States.

God Bless Angeles Duran.
