Dear lord that bass line. <3 Thank you so much for this video; I've never seen Cheese live, and they're at Waka this year. I'm excited now!

I use Path; have for more than a year now. No one I know has ever gotten a text from me via Path except the people I specifically invited to join. I wonder why it went so wrong for these folks but not for me? Or Q? Or any of my other Path friends?
 
Path. What a joke. 

"Try explaining to your grandparents down the line that they couldn’t download Path to their landline even if they wanted to (they don’t want to)."

This didn't happen to me either. I wonder if it depends on when you joined? Or...something. Welp, just glad I don't work for them right now.

If Saturn looks this close...be alarmed.
 
The best time of 2013 to see Saturn is now, as our planet Earth flies between the sun and Saturn today – Sunday, April 28, 2013.

Our fast movement in orbit brings us between Saturn and the sun every year. The event is called opposition by astronomers. In other words, Saturn is now opposite the sun in Earth’s sky. At opposition, Saturn rises in the east at sunset and sets in the west at sunrise. So Saturn is up all night, well placed for viewing. Opposition also brings Saturn closest to Earth for all of 2013. As a result, Saturn is now shining most brilliantly in our sky for the year. It’ll be in a good place to observe, shining brightly, throughout April and May 2013. If you recognize it now, you’ll also enjoy it throughout the Northern Hemisphere summer, or Southern Hemisphere winter.

Saturn also has 62 moons with confirmed orbits. Only 53 of Saturn’s moons have names, and only 13 have diameters larger than 50 kilometers (about 30 miles). Saturn is truly a wondrous world of rings and moons. It’s everyone’s favorite thing to see through a small telescope, so if there’s a public astronomy night near you this month – go!

How can you find Saturn in 2013? 

It’s not hard to find the ringed planet this year. The planet appears to the east of the blue-white star Spica on the sky’s dome. Saturn itself is golden in color, so you should be able to tell the planet from the star. How can you find Spica? Use a phrase familiar to stargazers: follow the arc to Arcturus and drive a spike to Spica. In other words, first locate the Big Dipper in the northeast now in the evening. Follow the curve in its handle until you come to the orange star Arcturus in the constellation Bootes. Extend that line until you the star Spica. The planet Saturn will be lower in the sky, about 15o below Spica. For reference, a fist at an arm length approximates 10o of sky.

Bottom line: Look for Saturn at opposition tonight, April 28, 2013. It will be shining in the east at nightfall, below the bright star Spica. To the eye, the ringed planet looks like a respectably bright steady star. Saturn follows Spica across the sky tonight and reaches its highest point around midnight. When Saturn climbs high in the sky, where Earth’s turbulent atmosphere thins out and settles down, Saturn is a treat for telescope users, who can view the planet’s glorious rings.

"Slooh Space Camera will broadcast a free, real-time feed of Saturn at opposition, with the giant planet's rings impressively angled -- its best in six years." As a result, armchair astronomers can see the out-of-this-world show on either their personal computers or their Apple iPads.

During the event online, Slooh's panel of experts will include Bob Berman, an author of astronomy books and a columnist for Astronomy magazine, and Paul Cox, an engineer who will be controlling the Slooh telescopes robotically from the U.K.

Slooh’s coverage will begin Sunday at 9:30 p.m. EDT. You can get the start time in your zone via timeanddate.com.

I SHOULD have been able to see the ISS earlier, but alas. Yard full of old growth trees.

We've had them in the PNW for a while, especially for kids with emotional challenges. But yeah, they are called therapy dogs in that context. Good idea for Boston.

Marvin the Martian would like that idea, I think. Right now it is holding my morning cup of Irish breakfast tea instead of coffee.

Introduction
I'm HillaryGayle. I love more things than I hate.

I love coffee, dogs, my husband & my son, my Borg BFFs, being a nurse, Converse & Sanuks, hats, makeup of every flavor, baking, farmer's markets & organic groceries, skirts that brush my knees, skirts that brush the floor, live music, my size 16 curves, dangly earrings, flowers, perfume oil, incense & other stuff that smells awesome, plump juicy peaches, Agent Smith, reading good books, modern jazz, jam rock, more than a handful of naughty things, Apple computers, Jeff Coffin, Concerta, science of all shades, Dave Matthews Band, my iPhone, and other human beings.

I hate oppression, fear, pain, loss, grief, the smell of burned cooking oil, yellow curry, giving bad news, intentional ignorance, being judgmental, closed-mindedness, washing dishes, sadness, and malice.

Save your sermons for someone who's afraid to love
If you knew what I feel, then you couldn't be so sure
I'll be right here, lying in the hands of God...

--Dave Matthews Band, "Lying in the Hands of God"
