♥~ The lightning in the sky is nearly 3 times hotter than the Sun.

♥~ Dr. Eugene Shoemaker’s  an American geologist,  and one of the founders of the fields of planetary science. is the only man to be buried on the moon. His ashes were scattered over the moon by the Lunar Prospector spacecraft in 1999.

♥~They sky is blue because of Rayleigh scattering.  The molecules in the atmosphere scatter the different wavelengths of light coming from the sun.  Air molecules like nitrogen and oxygen molecules reflect those with shorter wavelengths like violet, blue or green much better than the longer wavelengths like red, orange or yellow.  That is why wherever you look in the sky, you can see scattered blue light overhead.

♥~Light from distant stars and galaxies takes so long to reach us, that we are actually seeing objects as they appeared hundreds, thousands or even millions of years ago. So, as we look up at the sky, we are really looking back in time.


It was time for the mama and the baby pigeon to fly across the sky to grandmother pigeons house…

but baby pigeon said, “I can’t fly  make it; I’ll get too tired.”
His mother said, “Don’t worry baby pigeon; I’ll tie a piece of string to one of your legs and the other end to mine.”
The baby started to cry.
“What’s wrong now?” ask mama pigeon.
“I don’t want to be pigeon towed!

I hope today you eat pie, look up at the sky and know no limits! And, if you have the time I hope you will leave a comment because Odd loves Company!

  1. Oh God not David Cassidy.Please not David Cassidy! My sister drove me crazy growing up with his music. I still have nightmares to the tune of, I think he loves you.
    The sky. Love daybreak and sunsets.

    Have a great day lovely lady! I am going to try if I can wipe the memory of D.C. from my mind.

    • Yes. David Cassidy. I bet you like his big sister. Admit it!! ….
      I think I love you
      So what am I so afraid of?
      I’m afraid that I’m not sure of
      A love there is no cure for
      I think I love you
      Isn’t that what life is made of?
      Though it worries me to say
      I’ve never felt this way

  2. Hoping the sky does not fall today. I was up all night with a sick kid so far the day is not so good.
    I think Mike up there is being a little hard on David Cassidy! I loved the Partridge family and wanted to grow up to be Susan Dey.
    Pigeon toed–in the morning? Before coffee. Cruel!

  3. My brother had a crush on Susan Dey. I was much more of a dead head. David did nothing for me. In case you were wondering.
    One of my favorite authors is Clancy and I enjoy Turow as well.
    Have a great I love you sort of day!

  4. Did you know David Cassidy was my first boyfriend? Well, he was. I had lots of pictures of him taped to my bedroom walls and all his records. He was soooo dreamy.

    The sky was gorgeous here today.

    Hugs, Diane
