Google Maps UFO or Lens Glare?

Jacksonville TX UFO

So, is it a UFO? or a lens glare issue on Google Maps?
The same hovering red orb appears on Google maps at locations nearly 1000 miles apart. You say what it is…Google seems very quiet about it. The maps photos have changed to clear skies, now.

One photo is of Jacksonville, TX (downtown over the historical building) and the other is at the casino located at 32 Indian Service Route 30, Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico.

What do you think it is?

19 Year Old Cat Responded in Two days

5out of 5

Pros: Long-Lasting, Effective, Gentle, Good Value, No Side Effects, Losing weight, Hyperthyroidism, Seeping eyes, Won’t eat or drink

Cons: Difficult To Administer

Best Uses: Older Pets, Daily Care

Describe Yourself: Long-Time Pet Owner

My darling cat stopped eating and drinking, was listless and unresponsive when I force fed her. She vomited until only bile came out. Her eyes seeped oozing mucus. She yowled in pain.

After one day of Resthyro, she stopped yowling and lifted her head. Two days, and she drank a little water and fought me when I force fed her. She got up to use the litter box and raised her head frequently.

I hope and pray for her to eat on her own, because I hate force feeding. But everyone remarks how much better she appears since taking Resthyro.

The scratches on my hand because she doesn’t like taking the drops are a joy to me: life returning to my sweet cat.


NaNoWriMo is Writing Forward

I’ve been writing frenetically the first 14 days of November and have passed the 40K mark by 500 plus words.

The word count is expanding and the story developing. The speed written first draft of a novel without a single editing brake in the works.

Come Dec. I’ll start the edits. In the meantime, I’m pressing forward, writing the linear style of chronicles. Yes, this is the second in the series of books about Luc Beaumont, tween angel. He’s got issues. Cute as a button and gifted beyond measure.

He struggles with his self image, prejudice, accomplishments that he feels he must hide behind ignorance and abilities he cannot proclaim are his, without retribution and recrimination. Pretty much like many tween/teenagers today.

In the meantime, I love the character the story and the novel as it unfolds. Dangerous to fall in love with a character. They become real…

Hubble Celebrates 20 Years

Since the dawn of creation, we have needed to hear the story of the universe passed down by description. The last twenty years of the Hubble Telescope transforms our understanding by giving us front row seats.

 Saw an incredible video of the history of the Hubble space telescope. Our lives have not been the same since the namesake, Hubble discovered the expanding universe. With the orbiting telescope that has captured deep space photos, shots of stars forming and the like, we are treated to a mind expanding, brain boggling show. The Hubble 20th Anniversary shot is amazing as stars shoot out streams atop pillars and mountains of space dust in spiralling towers. Breath-taking.

Thanks God, for creating something that will tantalize our interest and intoxicate our spirits with unfolding drama and discovery. Thanks for the incredible genuises that have worked tirelessly to reveal it to us all. Since WordPress won’t let me embed the video, check out my parallel blog below with the embeded video.

New Toy for Adults and Children…or the Child in All of Us

If there is anything better than a surprise gift–it’s a toy to play with. For children or adults, toys light up the eyes and captivate for hours. A new laptop, no matter how small and unassuming is a new toy for children or adults. Its set up and the establishing of its profiles and boundaries considered most fun.

There is nothing like a birthday to open the possibilities for new toys and I am grateful for the gift of a HP Pavillion laptop. Here’s hoping my computer woes are a thing of the past. Smiles all around. It’s faster and smoother and even the touch of the keys are easier. Aaaahhhh, coming home to an new old friend. The same old accounts, but somehow new. Hi twitter, wordpress, facebook etc.  They look different on here. Oh, yeah, the display is not giving out.

So grateful for things great and small. 🙂 It’s truly an answer to prayer. Thanks, God. Now I can write more and with greater success, since I’m not spending time waiting for a page to load or a reboot. Miracle of miracles. **laughter** Yes, I am ecstatic, happy and downright giddy.

Alls well with the world, at least my small corner of it. So, how’s your day?


Honoring Men and Women Who Sacrificed

Memorial Day honors the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in service to their country, America. It is held in the end of May and  marks the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer.

As the parades occur, the flag waving and barbeques come out, it is important to remember that for every cross, star of David or crescent, there is a family–an extended one–for whom the loss signifies a life cut short.

For some, they never got to know grandpa, uncle or mom beccause the child was too young to remember the loved one when each was alive.  How sad. The great loss of laughter, story sharing and love can’t be expressed adequately for it is impossible to say what might have been for certain. There is only speculation.

For those who have died while servomg and provided Americans with freedom to think, be whatever they want to be, to learn and love and speak…the honor is theirs, always in the hearts of those left behind.

Stargate Universe Season One

When I first saw the pilot of Stargate Universe, I didn’t have the reaction I’d had when I watched the first episodes of SG-1 and Atlantis. I fell in love with them from the first start. They were light-hearted fun and the characters sassy and heroic.

SGU offered dark sets. My aging eyes found it hard to adjust to it, especially as I watch more often than not on my computer. Not everyone in the family is such a sci-fi lover as I am. I don’t hog the TV.

The characters were a bit reserved, with the exception of Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle) whose ‘pure scientist’ attitude revealed an in-your-face type Machiavellian ego-centric leader of the scientist cadre. Colonel Everett Young (Louis Ferreira a.k.a. Justin Louis in’s IMDb)seemed like he could be heroic, but he was injured and reticent. The leader of the military took a back seat, hardly a Colonel/ General Jack O’Neill type, or Major/Colonel John Shepherd type. They jumped off the screen. Young receded into it. Still his military leadership shone through and he looked the hero.

Eli Wallace (David Blue) stole the show for me. His natural humor and brilliant mind that states the obvious, was the closest to Jack O’Neill that I grew to love. Never take oneself too seriously. LTS, was Richard Dean Anderson’s phrase. Life’s Too Short. He has the potential to be as funny as Rodney (David Hewlett) but he’s taking it slow.

Chloe Armstrong (Elyse Levesque) is a beauty, but they didn’t give her much of a role except to look pretty. Her father, Senator Alan Armstrong (Christopher McDonald) was much more heroic than anyone, although he started out a little full of himself.

I reserved judgment. I kept watching through the first half. “Justice” nearly made me quit. When they had Col. Young beat up Dr. Rush and leave him for dead on the deserted planet, I felt I was ready to pull out the old DVDs and watch SG-1 and Atlantis episodes for the hundredth time. Reading the blogs, it seemed that the writers and producers were listening to the anger of the fans.

One the the key things that the fans asked for was more spaceship battles and genuine aliens, not the blurry things of the first episodes.

The second half of the season has been much better. “Space” offered bona fide aliens in blue suits and greyish tones. They were an upgrade on the Aasgard alien and they wore clothing. The space battle was true Stargate franchise. Great CGI and fun encounters that border on near anihilation…until the last moment, when they are saved by the bell. It was a definite improvement.
“Human” was a touching intro into Dr. Rush’s mind and his past. “Faith” dealt with issues of ‘faith vs. science’ in a wonderfully thoughtful manner. I like the dribbles and drabbles of information that we are retrieving. There is not always time to extract it all or go back for it. The constraints give the story arcs a greater time.

I love that Daniel Jackson and Jack O’Neill visit. I’m looking forward to the Lucien Alliance antagonist, Robert Knepper in Season Two.

I wonder how they will deal with TJ and Alaina Huffman’s pregnancy. Will she be killed off, like they did Frasier in SG-1 (I cried at that loss) and Beckett on Atlantis (come to think of it, I cried when he died, too)? The doc is always the one character that people love that they can kill without killing a primary character.

If so, who will take the place of the doctor? Will Chloe, who has been studying Dr. Jackson’s works (How they get her reading his stuff, is amazing in itself. We know he’s never been one to organize well.) be the one to take over? Will they incorporate a healing person extracted from an alien civilization like Teyla and Tealc’ joined with the teams? It remains to be seen. I’ll read up and check out the scuttlebutt around the water cooler. Anyway, here’s a great CGI explosion for a space battle to leave you with.

Meanwhile, keep watching and have a starcrazed day.


P.S. Follow me. 🙂

Thanks to and the Stargate photos.

The Pastor’s Wife

A young pastor fell in love and proposed to the love of his life. She didn’t initially accept.

“Please,” he said. “What can I do to persuade you?”

“I will marry you, on two conditions. Never look in the box on my table and never ask me about it,” she replied.

He thought it was weird, but he agreed and they were married.

Twenty-five years later and they were about to celebrate their wedding anniversary. They were getting ready to go out for dinner and he went to their bedroom to get his jacket.

Her box on the table caught his eye. He’d never looked in it or asked her about it, but his curiosity overwhelmed him and he opened it. Inside were three eggs and a stack of money. He counted 7,000 bills.

Putting it back, he felt ashamed, went to his wife and confessed immediately that he’d broken his promise to her.

She didn’t seem too concerned, so he ventured, “May I ask about it?”

“It’s okay.”

“What are the eggs for?” he wondered.

“Every time you preached a lousy sermon, I put an egg in the box,” she replied.

He thought, three eggs in twenty-five years, that’s not too bad.

“What’s the money for?” he continued.

“Well, every time I collected a dozen eggs, I sold them.” she replied.
