Amazing weekend

It is hard to describe how I am feeling after the weekend. All I know is that I am so proud to have been part of it all. The atmosphere was amazing and the real sense of togetherness.

I’ve been up between 7 and 8 every day going out for a walk or on the treadmill (admittedly Smudge is waking me up earlier than I intend every day though!) As you can see from the countdown to the left there are 13 days left until the event. My goal is to do it at least 5 times. If I can do that then I will be happy. A few months ago I signed up to the Planetary Society and then promptly forgot about it such is the way my brain works.  So when the post came yesterday with my free T-Shirt it was a pleasant surprise. I am now a member and I urge everyone to check it out. It will …
