Lunar Eclipse

My new roommate, Maria, & I stayed awake for he lunar eclipse last night, well 1:30-2:30 this am. We also had lightning which looked like it was huge flash coming from the ground & it was soundless. The northern lights were active & looked like a mint green smear getting bigger the higher it went. There was one part which moved, rippling through the air. The milky way was just over head & the stars were magnificent with such little moon light. The moon had an amber overtone. There was also a very chilly wind whisping around us. The dogs were howling away at certain times, you could hear the river water hit against the dock, & there was a bit of chatter from some other folks out watching the night's sky.

Otherwise, things are kind of stressful, but it's the beginning of the school year. Even though I only have 14 students (yay!) the diversity is like a multi-grade class, just two years. I'm coaching cross-country with an all boy team. We've been pulling double practices (7:30am & 4pm) + a Sat. practice so that some will be eligible to play. They need 10 to be able to travel. Also, my online class started last week, lots of reading but it's interesting. This class is nutrition, bodycare, & herbalism & will last 6 mon. That's it for now...

Say "Cheese!"


"Hey everybody!" (If you haven't seen "The Simpson Movie" get in your car & go now. Ok, back on subject...)

From the above website you can see the near 200 photos that I've uploaded. I even put captions with some of them. Go to the 'pics' link under my photo. You should be able to view them even if you don't have a MySpace account.
