Sage is blooming

The sage is doing so well this year that it I'd blooming.  It looks like salvia.

I don't know if this changes it's taste or will have any affect on it's production.

Remembering Shuttle Launches

This week's shuttle launch reminds me that when I saw the launch (above) of the Space Shuttle Atlantis in February of 2008 we also saw Endeavor in the VAB being prepared for a March launch.  

I saw the launch one week and then the next week we toured Kennedy Space Center without the crazy crowds.

Delaware license tag #9 spotted on rt 52 in Greenville (of course).

Canadian Redbud tree flowers

The whole reason I plant a Canadian Redbud at each house I have owned is for these pretty flowers and for this time of the year when the branches are covered with these flowers.

Osama Bin Laden is dead

It's all over the news today, I am not sure you need my links to it. Osama Bin Laden was killed my US special forces in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Finally.

I am not sure how important he was to al-Quada anymore, but he certainly was a symbol. Perhpas this sucess, along with the democracy fueled protests across North Africa and the Middle East signals a positive change.

My favorite coverage was @ReallyVirtual in Abbottabad, who apparently was live tweeting it and didn't know it.
