    I noticed there was something odd about the moon tonight as David and I were out shopping earlier.

    (I had to replace Christmas tree lights as it seemed every set I had this year went kaput! -- I've had them for what must be close to ten years though so I guess I received my monies' worth.)
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    the moon is moving away from earth [forgot number but it is like 1cm/year

    the moon stabilizes the earth's axis, without it the axis would move 90 degrees back and forth creating drastic climate changes.

    the moon dictates millions of living things growth and activity as well as climate.

    without the moon life as we know it wouldn't exist.

    i watch discovery science channel. i am starting to fall in love with science again and teach my 6 yr old, and twin 4 year olds. maybe i can make them into little wise youngs? lol

    Was cloudy here last night. The sky was still lite up though. I could see the deer at the feeder real good. Tonight should be clear so I'm hoping for better show.
    oh well

    Last night's moon was not just the biggest this year:

    http://www.newscientist.com/article/...ef=online-news

    The full Moon will loom larger in the sky on Friday than it has since 1993, as it will be nearly as close as it ever comes to Earth in its orbit.
    And it will be a while before it comes this close again:

    It will be eight years before the Moon appears so big again. "This evening's Moon is not only the largest for 2008 but also during the period 1993-2016,"
