here it is the long awaited Father’s Day Extravaganza! this Sunday is Father’s Day so in tribute to dear ol’ Dad here are some funny photos of actual Dads doing what Dads do. ENJOY!
You might have noticed my blog is befittingly full of posts about planets, stars, and black holes and the like. After all I am Space Hippie. Yeah back in the day I worked at the Miami Transit Planetarium. I ran the star shows. My boss was none other than the Star Hustler himself, Jack Horkheimer. He had a nationally syndicated show on PBS where he would walk out on a moonbeam and say ” Greetings, greetings fellow star gazers ” then tell you what to look for in the night’s sky, always ending by gesturing skyward saying ” Keep looking up ” before walking back up the moonbeam. He was a trip. I have some fond memories of working there, like the time Jimi Hendrix’s face appeared in the heaven’s when I was doing a star show for a local elementary school that was on a field trip. Ha ha, the slides must have gotten mixed up with the ones from the lazer light shows they did on the weekend. And I have some not so fond memories like it being freezing and sick as a dog, having to endure hours and hours of the Mannenheim Steamroller’s Christmas show. Absolute torture. Jack knew his shit, he was the best. But all I’ll say is the guy I had to deal with wasn’t the always the lovable Star Hustler that you saw on tv. I can laugh about it now but it did not end well. That Christmas show was the last straw. I remember when I quit as I was walking away I looked back at him and yelled ” Keep looking up, ASSHOLE! ” I guess that wasn’t very astronomically correct of me, huh?
Surreal, informative, as well as entertaining check out one of the old Star Hustler’s episodes on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkJheh1XcAQ
The Transit of Venus across the Sun takes place tomorrow. This will be the last transit of Venus to occur until
December 2117. For those of us in North America, we will see Venus transit on June 5 around 5:30 p.m. EDT until
sunset. ( It won’t be visible in South America. )
For over six hours when Venus passes directly between the Sun and the Earth, it will appear as a small dark disc moving
across the face of the Sun. A transit is similar to a solar eclipse when the Moon fully or partially blocks the sun. While
the diameter of Venus is almost 3 1/2 times that of the Moon, Venus appears way smaller because it is much,
much farther away from Earth. Read more about the transit of Venus on Wikipedia:
Besides, being a very rare astronomical phenomenon, ( The transit of Venus occurs in a pattern that repeats every 115
years, with pairs of transits eight years apart. This is the second of the current pair, the first one occuring in June 2004 )
the transit of Venus is believed to bring about metaphysical transformations. The 8 year period between the transits is
thought to be a “doorway” through which Unity consciousness effects the mass consciousness of the Earth. In many
cultures Venus has long been symbolic of divine feminity. The roman Goddess, Venus was associated with love,
beauty, and fertility. The astronomical symbol for Venus is the same as that used in biology for the female sex.
Indeed, in modern culture everyone knows Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.
Which makes me wonder if that is true, and Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus…then where are
( If you don’t get my joke, look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronomical_symbols )
So happy viewing, take precautions and don’t burn yer eyes out…see how much fun it is gazing at the Sun? Better than
t.v. You’ll never now what you’ll see…again!
READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE: A User’s Guide to Smoking Pot With Obama.
CLICK ON THE ABOVE LINK it is a repost from a blogger named asnow rose telling the true tale of President Obama days of being a avid pot smoker in High School.
I think this is an attempt to embarrass Obama for being a stoner when he was growing up. I personally think his ( ever changing ) stance on Marijuana legalization is way more of an embarrassment. Since he knows personally that marijuana use is not dangerous and that it is beneficial to those that use it medicinally, you’d think he would attempt to reform Marijuana Prohibition on a Federal level.

Mitt’s campaign made a little misspelling boo boo, on their campaign mobile ap recently. No biggie really, they just misspelled the name of the country they are trying to run. Or maybe perhaps it’s a Freudian slip, Amer C-I-A…
C-I-A, remember them? Accused of everything from drug running to the assignation of JFK, somehow they ride off into the sunset looking like the good guys yet again. If you believe Bush stole his re-election ( which the evidence seems to confirm ) does it really matter who you vote for? I mean really? Obama sold you a bill of goods on that whole ” Change ” thing but if you ask me that’s all we got, a pocketful. ( yeah the good weed ain’t cheap! )
So who am I voting for you ask? Me vote!? I’m a five time convicted felon. It ain’t happening. You’re on your own.
p.s. if you’re wondering who’s going to win ask Kid Rock…
