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 funny that when there’s a big success, all of “humanity” gets credit even though most of us couldn’t safely land a bottle-rocket on our driveway. NYT’s photo piece on landing a on a comet. WaPo: The Rosetta comet landing has made history. Vox: The best photos from the landing.

I’d like to know the rest of the story…
Driving into the city my teen and I spotted this Holy Roller. Guess, it wouldn’t be very Christian of me to hope lightning strikes this vehicle. Not the person in it….just the truck.
Or perhaps we could introduce this angry ram to this Christian truck….Isn’t there something about rams in the Bible?
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!
