Cosmos and Culture: How Astronomy Shaped our World

An exhibit at the Science Museum in London. I wish I could go check it out… at least I can look at some pictures of a few things from it here and so can you!

I realize that my car has been fixed for a while now but as I look back I can see it was the last thing I wrote about; and I am sure that you must be wondering what happened! Thankfully my car did not explode or catch fire at all. Apparently all that happened was that my breaks fell off.

I am inclined to feel that some responsibility lies with myself for letting them squeek for so long. I also tend to think about how two weeks before they fell off I had my inspection done. It wouldn’t pass without some break work. This seems a little suspicious.
