Rosetta Stoned: Touchdown. After a ten year journey and a seven-hour fall, the Philae lander lived up to its name and anchored itself to the surface of a large rock 317 million miles from Earth. From The Verge: Humanity just landed a spacecraft on a comet.

It’s snowing. Beautiful snow! I love snow. Salt trucks are music to my ears despite the fact that my neighborhood (and most of Chicago) is still under gas line renovation (Guess the mayor didn’t get the winter memo since the papers were signed to start this city wide work mid September). I refuse to complain about the the snow or cold this early in the season. I will pace myself. In November and December snow is beautiful. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

    I’ll read backwards. I heading out to breakfast and will read more later. Gotta catch up with El Morno

  2. I did see the poppies, and they’re spectacular! I also bookmarked the writing advice (never can have enough of that).

    Interesting article about being busy. We’re probably ALL a bit at fault for that; still, wouldn’t it be grand to unplug for an entire day (if not a full day, then maybe a couple of hours!)

    What was that man thinking — stealing a chainsaw??
