Notes about various subjects, some mini related, some not, about
what is going on in our lives...

December 20, 2011

Hard to believe 2012 is almost upon us!

Our family has had a pretty good year, and we hope you and yours have had an enjoyable 2011 as well!

Finally got the domain dispute settled with the new name, so I just might actually get to putting up that new site soon.  I think it's been almost a year since I started planning for it.

Our most recent event was our November trip to Cocoa Beach, FL for the launch of the rover "Curiosity", which contains the Mars Science Laboratory.  Steve worked on the ChemCam portion of MSL, so we were honored to be invited and very excited to attend the launch.  It was awesome!

If you'd like more information on ChemCam or the rover, here are some links:

JPL/NASA launch video and more!

While we were in Florida, we decided we would also take the opportunity to visit Epcot Center and Disney World as well!

Now the holiday season is upon us, and we will be heading out of town again to spend Christmas with the family.

Merry Christmas to all of you, and wishes for a bright, happy, and healthy New Year!

I've added a page for the
fairy orbs, but need to take some more pics - if any of you have pics of how the plants have grown in the orbs you purchased, I'd love to see them!
