Solar Eclipse 2017

Solar Eclipse 2017 Huntsville

Already, the historic event is passed and now we find ourselves on the far side of the moon. Here’s one shot I managed to get while the clouds threatened to block the sun and the moon today. In Huntsville, “totality” was only 97% and although they talked about it in the media, I did expect it to get somewhat darker. I didn’t use any special filers on my camera either, and it seems to have worked just fine – having been very careful not to fix my gaze upon the sun. The clouds actually acted as filter in this shot, and it wouldn’t have been as good if I had used a filter.

    Rascally Oakwood College Students Have Protest History Other Than Ferguson

    As mentioned in this column title, Oakwood College students have a history of protest and kudos to them for responsible public action. They protested last week during rush hour traffic and pulled it off without violence or even an arrest, and still managed to shut down traffic on University Drive for several minutes.

    Luther Strange | Alabama’s Third Wheel Of Corruption And Trans…

    These days, we have the resources and the ability to show grace and compassion, and acceptance, even if we don’t agree or understand. That’s why it’s called “civilization.” We don’t always do a very good job of it because there is a lot of malfeasance and corruption and witch doctors who make money on exploiting misery, or preventing happiness. The bottom line is that Luther Strange doesn’t need to be adding fuel to the fire to cultism, extremism, and corruption.

    Shakin Bakin Canada

    FIRST: My apologies if you were unable to visit www.tocc.tv in the last few days. Snafus on my personal site left it offline for a short time. Immediately following that, my hosting service crashed disrupting service to all their customers. All seems to be well now. By now you’ve probably heard this morning’s headlines about […]
