OK, we’re now here on the other side of the US 2017 Solar Eclipse that cut a swath of midday twilight across the country. I’m reminded of the line(s)/concept in the movie “Ladyhawke” when the drunk monk said that an otherwise lifelong curse could be broken during “a night without a day and a day … More #SolarEclipse2017 ~ an indirect experience off the beaten path of totality
The coming total solar eclipse in the US today is probably very well-known to most Americans. Yep, it’s today. A few cable TV channels started “pre-gaming” last night, complete with a little countdown timer thingy.

Talk about lowest common denominator and all that! Never. Ever. Just–no. I assumed that it was for … More Dr Phil is kinda cool (don’t walk away yet) 😉
