    I had a great view of Mars while on vacation last week. It was bright enough to cast a dim reflection in the sea as it rose & was absolutely spectacular.

    My uncle has over a $1000 telescope. I love looking and some of the things he finds in there.

    Malcolm, I have stocked up on bottled water, bandages, disinfectants, canned food (for felines and humans), and DVD player laser-assembly cleaners. It pays to plan ahead. JB
