Meteor Shower

Solution

Meteor shower competes with the Moon during this August sky light and special effects show. This weekend is the right time to drag a chair, or blanket out and do a little stargazing.

The Perseid meteor shower, which begins Friday night and stretches into Saturday night, will have a higher-than-usual rate of about 150 meteors per hour. Unfortunately, some of the duller meteors will be canceled out by the brightness of the moon, which will be about three-quarters full. The shower happens annually when the Earth passes through remnants from the Comet Swift-Tuttle.

Mourning Wake-Up Call

Idea

Acting with a judge's warrant, federal agents have searched the home of President Trump’s former campaign manager in Virginia. Investigators are reportedly following the money trail focusing on tax documents and banking records. Manafort’s Home Searched as Part of Mueller Inquiry https://nyti.ms/2vjjqH6

Happy Anniversary

Solution

Yirong Chen-Soto and Roberto FE Soto made it four years and still going strong. Today is our fourth wedding anniversary and to celebrate with all of you, we want to share the following images.

Our thanks to all who attended our ceremony and to Jack Hopkins and The Breen Brothers for these video clips.

While couples around the world are splitting up in record numbers, Yirong and I are delighted we tied up that proverbial knot. And with our Lord's blessings and your support, we'll live, laugh and love together forever.

Kinder Gentler Garten

Announcement

You know you're getting old when your grandson goes to his first day of Kindergarten. This preschool educational approach is traditionally based on playing, singing, practical activities such as drawing, and social interaction as part of the transition from home to school.

Parker and I enjoyed playing digital hide and seek over the summer, and when I sent him a text message, he quickly recorded a response saying... I can't read yet, GB. He calls me that, which is short for Grandpa BoB.

War of Words

Idea

@POTUS escalation of dangerous words makes one think out loud, is The Donald paranoid because of The Russia investigation, his low approval ratings, or Pence's activities behind the scenes to eventually replace him?

Are these angry boys threatening each other in the political playground? When we brother and I pushed each other, my father used a warning rhyme in Spanish... Juego de manos, juego de villanos... Game of hands, game of villains. Could they be the brats who cried wolf?

President Trump's response to North Korea’s threats with incendiary rhetoric to a nuclear-armed lunatic creates a risk now that a political shoving match could lead to World War III.

A War on Drugs, or Poor Americans?

Issue

American physicians are tracking prescription meds. Also the pharmacists, and, in some jurisdictions, the police. Doctors prescribe pain killers, but the government appears to be trying to control the use of medicinal, along with recreational drugs.
