The Venus Transit occurs once or twice per hundred years.

I just finished my photography session of the Venus Transit. Not having the best equipment for solar photography, I set up a
reflective system using binoculars onto a white piece of cardboard.
Using my not too great phone camera, I got a few decent shots.

Of course, many thousands of people will have taken pics of the
transit, still in progress as I make this post. It’s a fairly non
descript shot, of a dot, against a plain background, with really no
detail anyway.

But that’s not the point. Actually, what could be more appropriate and
iconic, than a snapshot of the Venus Transit during 2012, using my
digital phone, after which I uploaded one shot to Facebook, and now
posting this note to my website via my phone email.

What would I say to the people in 105 years who will undoubtedly sneer
just a bit at even the best photos from today? You just had to be
here, that’s all.

I am here. I got my shot…but next I got to figure out if I can
upload photos to this new section of

    The NFL’s Foreboding Confluence: Sold Out… In More Ways Than One

    The sad reality is, the NFL made a statement: Their profits are more important than the principles, if not the technicalities, of the US Constitution.


    Absolute power corrupts absolute, and as I recall Ted Turner, wise man that he is, once called Christians “stupid.” He eventually apologized, but for what I don’t know. While Christians are foolishly attempting to take over government with religion, the potential grows for a flag burning amendment that would essentially set the stage for the dissolution of all basic constitutional rights to unravel like a braided sisal rope without a boy scout.

    About The IMS – Interfaith Mission Service

    I regard the IMS as a proactive terrorist organization and I have witnessed those associated to that organizational structure involved directly or as accessories in several illegal activities: conspiracy, child molestation, torture, coercion, identity theft, human trafficking, extortion, racketeering, and with deliberately attendant political propagandizing – what amounts to domestic terrorism.
