I woke up this morning grateful for all that I have in this mad-cap world that is cycling down. My first compute stop every morning is the Astronomy Picture of the Day - today featuring a "Sun Rose" in one of my favorite colors as if a birthday present. My birthday plans have been rescheduled as snow takes center stage, the sounds of sanitation workers cleaning the streets, echoing below. It will take months for the pothole crews to repair the damage, but enough about the weather.
What's in the box?
Could it be ... ?
Yes it is ... a new iPad
Now back to the Apple store in NJ to get a cover and activate it with Verizon.

It was the year of the big MUFON conference in Vegas as the truth was beginning to take shape in the magical world of UFOlogy. Were you there?
