Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
You want to check out a great novel about the ancient world (and 20th century fascism). Check out The Egyptian by Mika Waltari.
I realize this is a photo mash up with extended exposure of the night sky superimposed on the lake photo, but it really makes me excited for October and when I can take my telescope and binoculars out again and enjoy what small wonders we have available to view in the Alaskan night sky. I am always sad that the major wonders of the Milky Way, Sagittarius and the other center galactic constellations are not available to us, but still there are wonders to behold even in our winter northern skies. Thanks for sharing, the sky is a wonderful thing!
Oh, puh-lease, quit your whining.You can see more in Alaska with a pair of 7 X 50 binoculars than I can see with my 10-inch Dobson.Lucky bastard.
Absolutely right 10:16. In the 60s my brothers and I used to wonder at the sight of the Andromeda galaxy, a smudge we could see with the naked eye from our backyard outside Hartford, CT. Now 50 miles into the country I can barely make out a few constellations thanks to our good neighbor Walmart. See http://www.bobcrelin.com/author.html and weep.

I love that quote. Carl Sagan left this earth way too soon. Good night all.
