Actually wouldn't it be 6-25-18 if you really want to be super accurate. Now is the time to go after a couple of windmills. Or perhaps the Holy Grail. Who will join me in my quest!

With my new found laziness, I just got the new air installed in time for winter. It did a fantastic job as it put out 100 degree air and for a heat pump, that is really good in my estimation. The air might be required this next weekend. and if it is half as good as the heating, I will be very satisfied.

Too much higher math.

I doubt many would come to the Christmas show in July. Also it has a bit of a following and I would hate to dilute that. The big problem is the resetting of all the planet projectors. It might not seem like a lot but it is a bit of a pain. Starting right after Thanksgiving and then going to mid January appears to work fairly well.

That will make someone an AMAZING garage some day! I always tell my wife, I built my star theater so it will collapse very easily when the next guy bulldozes it! Saying garage though reminds me of the possibility of a DRIVE THROUGH planetarium.

Gary, You got me on this one. You know I could not resist opening this thread when it shows something about Christmas Cards 08 when it's the end of April. So I had to look. Then, I also find this interesting pix of Ron looking like something from Knights of the Round Table. With retirement almost upon you, I am looking forward to the revisions of your star barn. mm

Well, at an average of $3 each and another $0.50 to mail them, the electronic media looks better and better. Merry Christmas, in case I forget. (IMG:http://www.observatorycentral.com/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

"Good's-a-banging" actually flows kind of nice, but not sure many would catch the meaning. Kind of wonder how many catch the BangGood connection anyway.

A cartridge in my squeaky knee.

Minolta doesn't really rhyme with much, does it. But then...A Minolta in a spare supporting tree....Seven Zeiss spiced with lights....five pinhole Spitz. The beat goes on.

I do better with the hip-hop:

The light source is an arc lamp,
That ain't no c***.
Unless the light goes out,
With a great big Zap.
