Eclipse



I'm glad the eclipse is officially over.

For starters, I can get "Total Eclipse of the Heart," out of my head.

Secondly - I can stop thinking of this movie:




I tried to look at it, but I'm pretty sure I ended up just taking off a good ten years of my vision.  I know.  I really do.  I did it anyway.  Yes, I am a dummy - and I do deserve it.

Did anybody see ANYTHING?  I just saw a sun that was waaaaay too bright and then spots for the rest of the night.  Then at the ideal viewing time clouds covered the sun and the whole event was a wash.  Oh well.  I guess I'll always have my memories of Halley's Comet.

BDEM:  Spent the afternoon enjoying WAAAAY too much food with my family.  My mom and David head out tomorrow, so it was nice to get to see her one last time!  Love you, Mom!

Water:  30 oz or so.  I'll pick it back up when I work out tomorrow.

As a last minute add-on, I want to send you all over to my friend Bruce's Blog.  He has been working towards a marathon for (I believe) years, and yesterday he completed it.  What an inspirational story he shares - and I'd encourage you all to make your day better by reading his story HERE.  I promise you won't regret it.

Looking at the sun with nothing over your eyes is always bad for them. Hope you don't go blind. I heard of some people using photo negatives as a shield, while others just used a couple pair of sun glasses to make it dark enough. We ended up holding a flame under a piece of glass to make it all black. That worked really well actually. It was cloudy, but there were enough gaps in the clouds to see it pretty clear.
