  1. Given the size of it, are we a bit too close? Nothing to worry about in my lifetime I guess.

    1. Admiral, One would think we're safe but the democrats have a bill to attach warp engines to our lovely planet and head there post haste. We'll see.

    1. Carol-CS, Thanks :)

      I'm looking forward to Christmas. We don't do a lot but it's a nice time. And then we have the New Year where everything will just be Peachy No Doubt !

      That Is sad about Sly.

      Hope things are going well for you.

  3. That's a beautiful pic, Kid. I'd rather go out like that than have a slow, subservient decline via politicians - the boiling frog and all that.

    1. Ms Goodnight. I agree of course. Beautiful colors and arrangement. And this was a new one on me. We know black holes eat stars, but entire galaxies, after this one obviously consumed itself. So much out there. :)

    2. GV, PS, yes in a sense, we have political bodies that have gotten so large they're consuming their citizens. I hadn't thought of that until I read your comment.
