If I can't find it, I'll re-draw it and scan.




So glad to have you with us. We would love to see the cartoon if you have a scan of it.

Two things help us succeed in life.
The way we manage when we have nothing,
The way we behave when we have everything.

We may get some rain today - here's hoping we do. We do need it desperately.  At least it is not unbearably hot anymore. At least for today.

Nemisis, my condo is next to a cornfield, and I tell you it looks like a pile of sticks right about now.

Kay, things are not quite that bad here.  We had a sprinkle of rain on the weekend, enough to keep it humid a little longer, and just enough to take away that totally parched look.

It's your basic Texas summer here - near, or above the 100o mark through the weekend - no rain in sight for the foreseeable future.  :sunny

We got rain over night - not a lot but  the humidity is gone and it is a beautiful day - I even have the a/c off and windows open for the first time in weeks.  There is a lovely breeze.    I don't even mind that I have to sleep most of this afternoon as I am working tonight.

Born on May 26, 1951, Sally Ride grew up in Los Angeles and went to Stanford University where she was a double major in physics and English. Ride received bachelor’s degrees in both subjects in 1973. She continued to study physics at the university, earning a master’s degree in 1975 and a Ph.D. in 1978.

That same year, Sally Ride beat out 1,000 other applicants for a spot in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) astronaut program. She went through the program’s rigorous training program and got her chance to go into space and the record books in 1983. On June 18, Ride became the first American woman in space aboard the space shuttle Challenger. As a mission specialist, she helped deploy satellites and worked other projects. She returned to Earth on June 24.

The next year, Sally Ride again served as a mission specialist on a space shuttle flight in October. She was scheduled to take a third trip, but it was cancelled after the tragic Challenger accident on January 28, 1986. After the accident, Ride served on the presidential commission that investigated the space shuttle explosion.

After NASA, Sally Ride became the director of the California Space Institute at the University of California, San Diego, as well as a professor of physics at the school in 1989. In 2001, she started her own company to create educational programs and products known as Sally Ride Science to help inspire girls and young women to pursue their interests in science and math. Ride serves as president and CEO.

For her contributions to the field of science and space exploration, Ride received many honors, including the NASA Space Flight Medal and the NCAA’s Theodore Roosevelt Award. She was also inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame and the Astronaut Hall of Fame.

On July 23, 2012, Sally Ride died at the age of 61, following a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer. She will always be remembered as a pioneering astronaut who went where no other woman had gone before.

On a lighter note - HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMELIA EARHART!!

A pioneering aviator and inspirational figure, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and set many other records throughout her career. Her disappearance in 1937 during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe devastated admirers across the United States and around the world.
