It may not be a big planet, but today it is a big deal
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is at Pluto. After a decade-long journey through our solar system, New Horizons made its closest approach to Pluto Tuesday, about 7,750 miles above the surface -- roughly the same distance from New York to Mumbai, India – making it the first-ever space mission to explore a world so far from Earth.

An open letter to parents and Scouters
Dear Parents and Scout Leaders,
Crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens in the U.S. In fact, 15 teens are killed each day in motor-vehicle crashes — more than the next three leading causes of death for this age group combined. It’s sad to think that Scouts may be among those statistics.
But teen crashes aren’t the only problem on our nation’s roadways. Some 25 percent of crashes involve drivers distracted by cellphones. While at least 213,000 crashes involve drivers texting, at least 1.1 million crashes each year are caused by drivers engaged in cellphone conversations.
From the time our children face forward in their car seats, they are watching us drive. They observe the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to our driving. It’s our responsibility to keep our children safe behind the wheel. Leading by example is one way we can do that.
By being safe-driving role models for our children, we have the opportunity to define what it means to be safe drivers. We must demonstrate through our actions that seat belts save lives and should be worn on every trip by all passengers. Cellphones should not be used while driving. Traffic laws must be obeyed at all times.
I’m asking for the support of parents and Scout leaders like you. There are great, free resources offered by AT&T’s It Can Wait campaign.
If you have — or are about to have — a new driver in your home, it’s important that you and your teen understand your state’s teen driving laws. You can find a listing at this link.
Don’t wait till your children are of driving age before talking with them about safe driving. After all, it’s important that our children know how to be safe passengers, too.
I want to keep our Scouts, their families and our leaders safe. I am asking all parents and Scout leaders to refrain from using cellphones while driving, especially when transporting Scouts. If a call or text needs to be made or responded to, pull over to a safe location or ask someone else in the car to take care of the call or text for you.
We owe it to our Scouts to ensure their safety is our top priority and that they are returned home to their families safe and sound.
Sincerely,
William Bauman
Eagle Scout, Troop 73
Northeast Illinois Council
William Bauman, whose Eagle Scout project was a campaign against texting and driving, has an important message for Scout leaders and parents.

Remember only you can protect yourself from phone & email scams.  The government and corporations will only help after your information is compromised.

Great to read a statement from a company where they admit they had an issue and do not spend the majority of the statement spinning it.  There was a problem, we found it, here is what we are doing to fix it.  No marketing, no politics, no BS.

Earth from one million miles away
A NASA camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite has returned its first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth from one million miles away.

We would eat here all the time when visiting my Aunt & Uncle. Great place to go after church on Sunday morning. Good food with that home made taste that you can not get at a chain restaurant.
