For the first time in weeks, there is a clear sky. Last night we sat in the hot tub and watched remnants of the Persied Meteor Shower. However, living this close to Haywood Mall, we only saw two meteors – at least enough for a good wish. I remember a fellow teacher who once thought that meteors were actually stars that were “falling.” Falling to where, I wonder. More importantly, I wonder how someone with such limited astronomical knowledge came to be a teacher. I guess we all have our major knowledge gaps. His might have been that one particular thing, with extensive knowledge in other areas. Don’t ask me ANYTHING about cars – my particular knowledge gap!
My work webserver got hit by that stupid worm virus. Took awhile to figure out what was happening, but the fix wasn’t too bad.
