Thank you for sharing this touching story!
 
Awesome story ....

” So today I was in Hallmark buying my mom a Happy Birthday card when I noticed this old man stnding in front of the Valentines card section contemplating which one to get. I decide to go over and I ask him “Are you getting a Valentine’s Day for your wife?” in which he replies ‘No my wife died 3 years ago from breast cancer but I still buy her roses and a card and bring them to her grave to prove to her that she was the only one that will ever have my heart"

Leonid Meteor Shower Next Weekend
For anyone interested in night landscapes or astrophotography, you'll want to get out someplace dark and clear later this week. The Leonid meteor shower peaks the night of Thursday, November 17, leading into Friday morning. Meteor showers last for days however, so an increased rate of meteor activity will occur for a few nights before and after that night as well.

The best viewing hours for meteor showers tend to be after midnight as we rotate around to the front side of the earth as the earth flies through space and collide with debris at many thousands of miles per hour. The moon will interfere with viewing early Friday morning as it rises around 11pm Thursday night. But the moon will rise roughly an hour later on each successive night, providing some better windows for viewing photography Friday night and Saturday night. For this meteor shower the apparent source constellation Leo rises on the eastern horizon around midnight, about the same time as the moon Friday night, but the sky above that leading side of the earth is halfway up in your eastern sky by 9pm, so you still have some potentially good viewing for the hours leading up to moonrise (and the atmosphere-grazing ones away from Leo will be some of the longest and most noticeable meteors anyway).

So depending on the battery life of your camera for night shots (or your patience for night photography in November), Friday night from 9pm-12pm and Saturday 9pm-1am could add some meteor shower fireworks to your night shots. If you use a timer to trigger successive shots, you can assemble many shots in a row into a star trails image. Since the Leonid meteor shower is always a little unpredictable and the non-peak nights and moon rise add more challenges, I'll probably move around from place to place and pursue star trails shots. If I catch a meteor in an exposure or two, I'll just consider that a bonus.

I've been out chasing just about every major meteor shower over the past few years (and some of the minor ones as well). The photo below is from last year's Leonid Meteor Shower, and I produced a timelapse video from the 2009 event (expand the window to watch full screen): http://www.flickr.com/photos/jeffreysullivan/4113679600/

The Leonid meteor shower produces intermittent results with average years offering a sparse 10 to 20 meteors per hour, but its major peaks occur in 33 year intervals and produce thousands of meteors per hour. Strong showers were seen 1999, 2001 and 2002, so we should have some nice displays coming in the early 2030s.

In Crossville, Tennessee, just West of Knoxville in Cumberland County, stands
The Worlds Largest Tree-house. In 1993, Minister Horace Burgess, who is also a Landscape Architect, said he had a vision in which God told him to build a tree-house for all people. "As long as you continue building, you will never run out of material", Burgess relays he was told in the vision. So far, there is no arguing the point, as is estimated 258,000 nails have been sunk into the mostly scrap wood that forms this 100 foot tall "House" in the sky.

The "House for the People" is built in an 80 ft tall White Oak that is 12 ft in diameter at the base. Braced by 6 other trees, there are approximately. 80 rooms, 11 floors, and dozens of porches, patios, balconies, overlooks, and stairways. All tolled, the 10,000 sq. ft. labor of love has cost about $12,000 to build. Horace says he has had a lot of help, but there aren't too many pieces of lumber he hasn't had his hands on one way or another. I think it may have cured his smoking habit too. ;)

Is there a point where a treehouse becomes so big it ceases to be a 'treehouse'?
