Took my Oberwerk 15x70 Binoculars and Mono Pod out. Located and viewed Star Cluster M41 in the Canis Major constellation a little to the south and slightly east of the star Sirius. Nicely visible in these binoculars. Located and viewed Star Cluster M47 in the Puppis constellation. Nicely visible in these binoculars. Worked hard at locating the Star Cluster M46 also located in the Puppis constellation by making a few trips back inside to look at charts. I observed the exact location of it but was unable to see it. Looks like a job for more magnification and maybe a filter.
I think that Trump falls into this category. I seen an article the other day that was about Trump going to cut all kinds of health care to pay for that wall he wants to build between the U.S. and Mexico. I remember Reagan in Germany saying "Tear down this wall!". We were suppose to be the good guys who are leading the way. So now we are fallowing the bad guys and going to build a wall at the expense of our own peoples heath care. This is evil on top of evil with a lot of insanity mixed in because you know a fallowing president is going to have to tear it down. I can just see a Russian leader coming here after it is built and repeating Reagan's speech back at us.

INCONSISTENCIES This is one of the ways you know you are dreaming. Last night I dreamed that I was going to school in a crime ridden big city and I had a backpack with a lock on it and the lock was a pad lock. It was a regular size pad lock but not always. A few times it was as big as a backpack. A story that is in the book I am reading now about alien abduction mentions an inconsistency such as this and it makes me wonder.
sherlew99: Norbert is probably fine. Squirrels are very good at getting away. Is the kid OK?

pickinduck: I think physically the kids are OK. Still haven't seen Norbert.

sherlew99: Glad the kids got out of the situation in one piece. Hope that they'll be OK otherwise as well.

pickinduck: If we lived under water would we consider the air to be outer space?
Jul 3, 2016 14:41:48 GMT -6
sherlew99: What a fascinating concept. Well the air above would occupy an area of space. Plus the basic word "space" is just a common term that fails to include the vast, wonderful weirdness out there between all objects out beyond our world.
