When the blue plastic bags bloom on the limbs of trees and the lone pairs of sneakers sprout up and hang down on the electrical wires running overhead, I'll know that spring is finally hear in Baltimore.

There was a patch on my lawn today that was brown and green, not white. I kind of remember that's some kind of plant that grows there...

I was walking along E. 33rd Street near Union Memorial Hospital today, looking for signs of spring. Much of the snow had melted on the north side of the street, and I could see those little blue flowers that grow in the grass--what are they called? Also I saw one crocus in bloom.


A wonderful sign of spring is a row of parked snow plows. IMHO

What happens when we're dead? The irony is that all our questions will be answered after we die. We spend our whole life trying to figure out the truth and the only way we'll find out what it is, is to get hit by a bus. And the only comfort for Christians is that God is driving that bus. - John Ryman

But nothing says spring like short shorts !
2009 is the International Year of Astronomy
Have you looked through a telescope this year ?

Saturday October 24, 2009 is Astronomy Day.
Consider visiting a local astronomy club/astronomical society, planetarium, or observatory to take a look at the sky through a telescope.
