A full moon made for a beautiful sixth Olympic ring on Friday night, August 10, when a Reuters photographer snapped a breathtaking picture of the moon positioned between a large set of Olympic rings hanging from the top of London's Tower Bridge. Photographer Luke MacGregor also snapped photos with the moon positioned between one of the rings and hovering above and below the famed London span.

Can you nudge that up a bit, please.

Ooh, that's close.

Oops!  It's slipping!

That would look better if you could either nudge the bridge a bit, or the moon itself.

Almost, if you like that composition.

Oh, now that's starting to look right.


Humor --

Evidence has been found that William Tell and his family were avid bowlers. Unfortunately, all the Swiss league records were destroyed in a fire, ...and so we'll never know for whom the Tells bowled.
A man rushed into a busy doctor's surgery and shouted, "Doctor! I think I'm shrinking!" The doctor calmly responded, "Now, settle down..You'll just have to be a little patient."
Back in the 1800's the Tate's Watch Company of Massachusetts wanted to produce other products, and since they already made the cases for watches, they used them to produce compasses. The new compasses were so bad that people often ended up in Canada or Mexico rather than California. This, of course, is the origin of the expression -- "He who has a Tate's is lost!"


  1. Those Olympic organizers thought of everything! Enjoy the second full moon this month.

  2. The moon: playing rings around the rosies.
