Today, Parents, and Space

We're looking forward for the events to come today. Dad and Mary are due to arrive in Kingsport, and then join us for some basketball games. Zachary's game is at 10:10 am and Kara's game is at Noon. After the games we plan to have a bite of lunch, and then celebrate Beverly's and Mary's birthday. Beverly's birthday was January 30, and Mary's birthday is February 5. We'll have fun I am sure! Happy, Happy, Happy!!!

A Parent's Wish
A parent's wish for their children during their old age. Click on the previous sentence for a touching and informative slideshow of a parents' wish during their old age. It is recommended viewing for children whose parents suffer from old age diseases (parkinsons, alzheimers, dementia, etc.), but would be good for all children with aging parents.

The Space Station
A friend sent me an interesting link that shows how the Space Station has grown. This is a great animation showing all the segments of the Space Station, the modules and the international partners that have helped create it. The picture above shows the Space Station when it was first launched. You'll be amazed at what it looks like today. Click here to see the complete: Space Station Animation.


Quote of the Day
A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.
~ Theodore Roosevelt

Joke of the Day

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"
