NASA’s Juno Spacecraft Will Soon Be in Jupiter’s Grip

So excited!
The spacecraft is to orbit the largest planet in the solar system, perhaps gaining insight into the origin of Earth.

Oil prices rose above $48 a barrel as investors took advantage of a two-day slide in crude following the U.K.'s vote to leave the EU to lock in lower prices.

The picture to the left shows me on my 27th birthday- Oct. 23,1978. The 3 remaining are from March of 2003.
Introduction

 


 
I was born and raised in Midland, Texas.
I lived in Dallas, Texas from December 17, 1990 until May 1 , 1999 . Before that, I lived briefly in Ruidoso, New Mexico. I earned an Associate Degree at Midland College, studied psychology at U.T.P.B. of Odessa and computer science at Richland College of Dallas.  Currently I am retired, and dividing my time between Dallas and Ruidoso. My interests are many and varied. I enjoy books, movies , music , travel and most sports but especially the winter Olympics. I play the guitar and compose music. Please look at my photo albums! My politics are progressive, and as this is a presidential election year, I am advocating energy conservation, decriminalization of drugs and stiff penalties for rape, child abuse and animal cruelty. I am strongly opposed to the "prison for profit" system. I support adult literacy programs AND a substantial increase in the minimum wage. Under no circumstances should individuals or corporations be allowed to hide assets in offshore tax havens. EVERYONE should cover his or her fair share or the tax burden in this country. Oliver Wendell Holmes said "Taxes are the price we pay for living in a civilized society". Here are some books I recommend : TREASURE ISLANDS by NICHOLAS SHAXSON ; CONSUMER'S UNION REPORT on LICIT and ILLICIT DRUGS by EDWARD BRECHER ; THE FIFTIES by DAVID HALBERSTAM ; THE PRIZE by DANIEL YERGIN; WHEELS FOR THE WORLD by DOUGLAS BRINKLEY; DEMIAN by HERMANN HESSE; CHARIOTS OF THE GODS? by ERICH von DANIKEN.
Here are some movies I recommend : HIGH CRIMES starring ASHLEY JUDD; ARLINGTON ROAD starring JEFF BRIDGES; THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT starring MICHAEL DOUGLAS; PRIMARY COLORS starring JOHN TRAVOLTA; ENEMY OF THE STATE starring WILL SMITH; THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE starring DENZEL WASHINGTON; FOR YOUR EYES ONLY starring ROGER MOORE; FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE starring SEAN CONNERY.
The only TV program I really like is PERRY MASON. I have the ENTIRE SERIES on DVD.
And please ...Don't even get me started on music that I recommend ! It is all too numerous to mention. Suffice it to say that I listen to EVERYTHING, and you should too!
Here is my basic philosophy of life:
We are here for just a brief period of time, and it is our duty to at least TRY to leave this world a better place than we found it. And, since this is an election year as I have already mentioned ...I want to urge everybody who reads this to GET INVOLVED !
