Make a Wish

Have a wish that needs to be made? Over the next few nights, the Orionids meteor shower, second of the year, will be producing the most shooting stars October 20-22. For us in the Northern Hemisphere, we'll see about 20 meteors per hour in the Southern Hemisphere, 40 per hour. They will be most visible in the Eastern/Southeastern night time skies. 20 per hour? Hmmm. I better go get started on my wish list.

I had no idea!

I kind of think that if I didn't visit your blog, I wouldn't know the whole world was out there. I'm tragic like that.

Ooooh, thanks for the heads up! Maybe I'll take a drive tonight away from the city lights and see what I can see :)

YES! You are most definitely the first person to see a cheeseburger in that boat. Do you frequent Icanhascheezeburger.com, or are you just dreaming of Cheeseburgers in Paradise? :)

I'm a Canna Lily too! I love those things. I answered the black box questions a few times and ended up at some fun blogs.
