Another interstellar visitor has arrived!

C/2019 Q4 (Borisov)
We could get an up-close look at our solar system's latest interstellar interloper a quarter century from now if we so desired, a new study suggests.

Late last month, Russian amateur astronomer Gennady Borisov spotted a comet that appears to be visiting from very far away. The odd trajectory and tremendous speed of the object, known as Comet C/2019 Q4 (Borisov), strongly suggest that it was born around another star rather than our own sun, scientists say.

This comet is the third potential interstellar visitor we know about — and all of them were spotted in just the past two years. Is this then a possible alien invasion force?

Blueberry muffins!

Somewhere! Somehow! While I was on the road to a great diet, my path became diverted. I made up a batch of blueberry muffins, and then, there was no turning back!

A freshly baked muffin is like a good woman, only with none of the drawbacks! Sure there's a 130 calories per muffin, but then again, who's counting!

Notes: I used a package of Martha White blueberry muffin mix and 1/2 cup of milk. The mix was stirred until moistened and then placed in a six cup muffin pan with each cup filled about two thirds of the way to the top. For baking, I used a Breville convection countertop oven, preheated to 380° and baked for 13 minutes.

Could this be the last day for life on earth?

'This weekend you can see live telescope views of an asteroid hurtling past Earth, thanks to astronomy broadcaster Slooh.

An asteroid known as 2000 QW7 is expected to pass by Earth closely, but safely, at 3.3 million miles (5.3 million kilometers) from Earth, or about 14 times the average distance between Earth and the moon. (NASA sent out a statement reassuring people that this happens all the time, and there's no need to panic.) The asteroid's closest approach will be at 7:54 p.m. EDT (2354 GMT) on Saturday (Sept. 14).'


My take on this article that appeared on was to say that anytime a scientist or politician tells us not to panic, then it's definitely time to panic!

Send Me an Angel!

The Gospel according to Dan. Three important facts; 1) God is not a He, She or It. Let's just call the entity the Creator. 2) Yes, he did send his Son to this earthly existence as a witness of a real fight between good and evil. (If you don't know what evil is, you are already likely lost). And 3) Neither of those two have ever left us. EVER! The Creator's eye IS the sun shining above us, each day! And His Son is with us on this earth, always. Shakespeare wrote in a play called Macbeth of how each of us strut and fret - see 'That struts and frets his hour upon the stage  And then is heard no more: it is a tale  Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,  Signifying nothing. 'Well said. Yes, this existence IS chaotic, unfair and full of contradictions. Each and every soul arriving from the birth canal, of their mothers womb, do arrive on an absolutely insane world stage. Very innocent at birth and then so very quickly they each become tested in the trials of life.

The very young, who have died are given a pass. I do believe. [Why? Ask the Creator.] The rest of us.. Well, our moral metal is to be tested, measured and then perhaps some (a few) will one day pass through yet another birth canal.... See you all on the other side! Oh, and yes! Angels do exist and they are awesome! Well... most are. Mine happens to be named Berta...

Döf Codo!

Tic Tac Toe - Lästern

Too much heaven on our minds!

Judas was not a traitor of Christ. He was by far, the strongest disciple of the chosen twelve. And I believe that Jesus knew that fact and then used this poor man as an anvil in the forge of the union of mankind between this world and the next one to come.
