Another Cell Phone Photo

Nice fall day today in Wisconsin. The colors are beginning to change in earnest. Today was one of those nice warm fall days - leaves under your feet and the football game on the tube.

And I just paid $2.95 per gallon for unleaded gas! I never thought I'd be so excited about $3.00 a gallon gas.

Today's quote comes from Eric Sloane: A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.

Some Really Cool Images!

This is a photo of Mercury taken by the Messenger as it flew by. I love photos of planets.

What do you think this is? This is an image of mouse neurons. Who would have guessed? How cool is that?

Today's quote comes from Edwin Hubble, The Nature of Science, 1954 - Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.

Tough Cookies?


I am not advocating a particular candidate, but I think everyone should vote. If you don't vote, you shouldn't complain. You can always write in Spongebob Squarepants if you think he's the best candidate. No matter who wins, this election is historic.

One thing I love about this country is that we can disagree about issues and vote for different candidates and not feel the need to kill each other. We can get along, no matter our differences (well, at least most of us can.)

A bakery here in Milwaukee is selling cookies (all four candidates) and basing a very unscientific poll on the numbers of cookies bought. Here's the article from the paper.

I just had to bite her head off. Sorry if that offends anyone, but frankly, she offends me.

Today's quote comes from Sarah Palin herself (I couldn't resist): Well, let's see. There's -- of course -- in the great history of America rulings there have been rulings." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision other than Roe vs. Wade, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)
