Saturn is the smaller and closest to Moon (at left). Jupiter is further out.

It will be visible till well past midnight and will be hard to miss.

The conjunction will be around for a few days, before it starts to drift apart.

Today, April 21, 2017, Is Her Majesty The Queen’s Actual 91st Birthday — Happy Birthday MY Queen.

by Anura Guruge


A Very Happy Birthday
to MY Queen.


Click to ENLARGE and read this snippet here. Wikipedia link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_II


Today, April 21st, is her REAL, actual birthday.

However, this day, goes mainly uncelebrated and unremarked because she, like all her predecessors for the last 200+ years, has an OFFICIAL birthday. That is on June 10 — when we get all the traditional British pomp and ceremony.

91 today. That, by any standard, is one heck of an innings. I hope she is around for a few more years. It would be amazing if she can be a centenarian. Just think of the celebrations — worldwide. Not sure whether there has ever been a royal that was 100 years old. But, that is down the road.

Today, we commemorate and celebrate in our hearts.

Our Glorious Queen. The ONLY Queen I have ever known and she has been MY Queen, without interruption, since I was born.

I have NOT always been a Royal. During my ‘hippie-years’, well into my 20s, I was not a believer in the Monarchy. But, as I got older I, like so many, became to see the value and worth of the tradition. During the last 20 years (or more) I have come to ADMIRE her as a person for what she is and what she does for the World.

The U.S. has Donald. We have THE QUEEN.

Google Does Footnote For ‘Muhammad Ali’ Funeral — A Great Honor To The Greatest.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and goggle. On standard Google SEARCH page for Friday, June 10, 2016, Ali’s funeral.


Too early as yet for a Google Doodle.

So a footnote.

I surmise that this has to the QUICKEST somebody has got a Google footnote — in my belief that as with Doodle’s they don’t do footnotes for living people. I could be wrong on that. I really haven’t studied Google footnotes.

This was the ‘Common Core’ presentation that I had requested.

Definitely worth watching. Listen to what she has to say with an open mind.

Alton Central School (ACS), at least for 2013 – 2014, is committed to ‘Common Core‘.

I find it funny (given my admittedly very twisted sense of humor) that most folks in Alton, including the parents, think that the building renovation is the ‘be all and end all‘ of the issues facing the welfare of the Alton kids. Somehow bullying or the ‘Common Core Standards‘ don’t seem to figure in the priorities.

Last night, at the School Board meeting, given that I had requested it at the previous meeting, the Principal did get up and do a brief but poignant presentation on ‘Common Core Standards’.

I was intrigued, but not surprised, when one female school board member (and Carlos Martinez was NOT at the meeting), openly talked about ACS OPTING OUT of CC. Wow.

So, I, when I was finally given permission to ask questions, got up and asked a few questions MAINLY to get as much of the opinions and statements on the official record for possible future use.

As I suspected a prior Board did approve the school’s current ‘program’ with CC. I knew that that had to have happened.

I also questioned whether this board was 100% behind CC and got the response I expected — that yes, some have reservations.

School Board member, Mr. Steve Miller, yet again to his credit, per my statement that I wanted this on the record, went onto say that he is supportive of CC and does not feel that ACS is in the ‘position’ to ‘go in alone’. Check the record.

Interesting stuff.

Yes, I would LOVE to have included Mrs. Leggett’s presentation, but it is not as yet available online (at least to me). Deanna e-mailed her requesting a copy. Yes, of course, I will post it or a link to it as soon as we hear something back.

Enjoy.
