"Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence!" -- Bones McCoy

That being said, it didn't seem to stop the procedings on 19 June 2009 when the first commercial spaceport began construction. In case you missed it and were still asleep here is a report:


I'm out.

post script:

Like so many other kids of the day, Farrah and MJ played a part in my life as a young person.

Every week my family use to watch Charlies Angels after dinner and somehow I even ended up with the 'Farrah' poster.

I recall as a freshman at university riding my bike home as fast as I could the day the THRILLER video was supposed to premiere. What an event that was.

Losing both of these cultural icons in the same day just sort of makes mortality that much more final.

Rest in peace Michael and Farrah and peace to your families.

This is off topic but answering a request..we use this at work and it works well. Buy pie crusts at the store, pis crust is mighty temperemantal stuff. The most popular is apple/cramberry or peach/blueberry.

8 or 10 large ripe peaches, or more, depending on the size of cobbler you wish to make. Peel and slice thickly. In a paper sack shake together about a cup of sugar and 1/3 cup flour. Of course, increase these amounts according if you are preparing a larger cobbler.
In mixing bowl gently mix prepared peaches, 1 teaspoon vanilla and the flour/sugar. Place this filling into a deep see-through baking dish, dot with butter and top with a rather thick pie crust. Bake in a medium oven until the juice in the dish looks clear, or about 45-55 minutes.

Note: Be sure your dish is a good deal larger than the cobbler, if not, it will run over. I like a bowl shape better than a flat dish, with a flat one there is too much crust in proportion to the filling. There is a lot of flexibility in using this recipe. Other fruits such as blackberries, cherries or apples may also be used

I keep hearing that it is simple to make so I want to try it. My brother used maple/brown sugar oatmeal which was not bad, he also says to use cake mix. Most folks have said to use pie crust.

A friend of mine uses Bisquik and makes little bisquits for the top..brushes butter on top and sprinkles sugar on them...no quite as sweet but a bit hardier...it travels well that way of your going to someones house.
