Jazz Game with Grandma!!

On Wednesday, I went to the Jazz game with my grandma! It was a lot of fun!! Farley had class so I regularly updated him with text messages.

The ESA had new lights and a new sound system put in, so the intro for the players was pretty much amazing!!

Collin Ray and the National Guard did the National Athem. It was even better than the intro's.

Introducing the players.

The fireworks!!!

The Energy Solutions Arena with the lights out!!!

I went to get the oil changed in our car this morning and it was SNOWING! How exciting and not exciting at the same time. Ha ha!! Is anyone else ready for winter?

This is Really Interesting!!

I thought you might enjoy this - it all is amazing to me! A teacher friend gave this to me. She uses these images to show the size of Earth related to our solar system. By the end of reading through this, I always feel so small and realize that the universe really doesn't revolve around me and that my focus on my life should be broadened a bit to bring in more.

Now, beyond our sun it is a big universe.

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky. It is more than 1,000 light years away.
Now try to think about this...
The picture below is from a hubble telescope ultra deep field inflared view of countless enitre galaxies billions of light years away.

This is a close-up of one of the dark regions in the picture above.

Makes you feel pretty small, huh?
