Well guys I have some big news, well for me at least. Firstly I will ask that no mention of this goes on facebook as there are still some family and friends to be told, but I have permission to spill the beans because I have been keeping it secret for a month now..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Many congratulations - I have a single son who is determined not to procreate.

Welcome to a great new chapter in your life. At about age 3 I showed my grandson a picture I'd taken of Jupiter. He said " Ball" so I took him outside and pointed out Jupiter in the sky. He didn't quite get the connection so I set up

my Meade ETX 125 and let him look though it. He got it that the ball was that bright spot in the sky. He's been hooked ever since. At 8 now he has his own 4" reflector in Albuquerque New Mexico. Dark skies! Loves Jupiter, Saturn, Pliadies, all kind of stuff!
