Tucked-in

Tucked-in

To me this old barn is a classic beauty. Tucked in among the trees, shrubs, and hills I can’t help but think about the history of this little beauty and all of the lives that are enter-twined with its existence. View it large to see the temperature at the time this image was taken, (January 2007) as well as the wonderful character this barn possesses.

Inflatable Space Station–Cool!

Inflatable Space Station Design Tested

June 29, 2007 — A new inflatable, unmanned test module for a proposed private space station was launched into orbit Thursday aboard a Russian rocket, the U.S. company developing the technology said.

The Dnepr rocket carrying the Genesis II module lifted off shortly after 7 p.m. local time from the ISC Kosmotras Yasny Cosmodrome in Russia’s Orenburg region, according to Bigelow Aerospace of Nevada.

The 15-foot-long module was designed to expand to a diameter of 8 feet. Contact with the module was established later in the day and data indicated good voltage in the power system and “decent” air pressure in the vehicle, the company said.

That was not official confirmation of solar panel deployment and expansion of the outer shell, Bigelow spokesman Chris Reed said. “But all the data indicates that’s the case.”

I Walk Amid the Flowers Bloom

I walk amid the flowers bloom
With heavens scent of sweet perfume
The dogwoods petals creamy white
And red buds blossoms airy light

The bees busily buzz about
Pansies display their facial pout
Flying flowers flutter round
Bird’s songs provide a pleasing sound

Breathe the freshness of the morn
As golden sun turns chill to warm

Well, it’s not much but it’s the first pic with my new camera…Canon XTi D400. Didn’t have much time last evening but I had to snap one shot…and this is it.
