    Great news, Donnie Tell Lottie she's giving this old fart hope that I'll still be able to find gainful employment until I can retire ... which should be when I'm 85! LOL!

    USS Lexington Found!

    At a depth of 3,000 meters (1.86 miles), there's very little oxygen in the water to cause corrosion (at least, that's my guess as I'm no expert). Now here's a picture for the propeller heads:

    Our Schnauzer, Tehya

    OG, It sounds terrible to say, but I suffered more through the loss of a pet than I have with close relatives. Pets are part of the fabric of our lives. Their passing leaves a huge hole in our very existence. Everything in the home, from their favourite spots, to their toys, to their clumps of shed hair that you keep finding months after they are gone, just keep tearing open that wound in your heart. I hope Tehya rallies back from this, but if he does step on that rainbow bridge, know that he'll be waiting for you on the other side.

    SpaceX Falcon Heavy test flight

    SpaceX Falcon Heavy test flight

    I watched the live stream and was pretty much gobsmacked by the entire event from the takeoff, to the booster landings, to deployment of the space-suited Starman in the Tesla roadster with those live images of Earth in the background. Truly a remarkable time to be alive and be able to witness this event. Here's the simultaneous booster landing with the sound of the double sonic booms: Here's the Starman in the car with Earth in the background: Too bad the core booster ran out of fuel and crashed into the ocean, but they learned something for next time, so that's good.

    To paraphrase Kubrick's movie 2010: "My God. It's full of snow!" At least that's what I said when I looked at my driveway just now. Been snowing like crazy all day.

    What you been up to lately?

    Beauty contrails! I love contrails.

    Warmish, but with high winds. The high winds will bring heavy snows later tonight. Shaping up to be a classic "Alberta Clipper" system that no doubt will wreak havoc along the highways and byways across the prairies. And to my friends in Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota ... you're welcome

    -11C/12F. Not horribly cold, but annoying all the same. On the other hand, it is Friday, so that's good
