All of a sudden I'm a busy bee, and as a result I didn't get any photos ready that I presume you dearly love. Besides the usual - park magazine, blog setup, reading email, loafing -- I have taken upon myself the task of making an astronomy slide show for Avenidas. I can't blame anyone but myself since it was my idea. It should run about 40-45 minutes, and when I tried timing the first 30 slides, it came out to all of 12 minutes. Oops. I changed my procedure a bit (that's called tweeking), added a few more slides, and retimed. Came out to 28 minutes. Far better, but I still have quite a ways to go. I'll have to tell you more about it when I get the opportunity. In the meantime you'll have to settle for the title slide and a bit of humor.
