Uranus is Big but Jupiter is Huge Tonight

Sorry, that never gets old.  Jupiter is close tonight.  The next time it will be this close is 2022.  It is a mere 368 million miles away. 

As I blog, (8:45pm), Jupiter is rising in the east and will be directly overhead at 12:43am ET.  Jupiter is the brightest thing in the sky aside from our moon. 

Uranus will also be visible and will appear just above Jupiter as a greenish star.

Is blogging for me?

   I am not so sure that blogging is for me...  The word "blogging" has never appealed to me.  The word seems sluggish, uninspiring, and caloric.  That's right..."blog" seems like it should be high in calories.  If I "blog" too much will I get fat?  If I blog too much will my thoughts become uninspired.  Will I start moving slower and become lethargic. 

  When I think of a "blogger" I never think of a fast runner.  I never think of an inspirational speaker.  I think of slow and boring catapillars.  So I will consider this "blogging" thing carefully.  Until I reach my decision, enjoy your weekend and ponder the Cincinnati 7-Day Forecast.
