2013 – Romania

Emil Racoviță's 145th Birthday

Emil Racoviță’s 145th Birthday

Emil Racoviță (Romanian pronunciation: [eˈmil ˈrakovit͡sə]; also spelled Racovitza; 15 November 1868 – 17 November 1947) was a Romanian biologist, zoologist, speleologist, explorer of Antarctica and the first biologist in the world to study the arctic life.

Together with Grigore Antipa, he was one of the most noted promoters of natural sciences in Romania. Racoviță was the first Romanian to have gone on a scientific research expedition to the Antarctic, more than 100 years ago, as well as an influential professor, scholar and researcher. (WikiPedia)

Shichi-go-san 2000

Shichi-go-san 2000

Shichi-Go-San (七五三?, lit. “Seven-Five-Three”) is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three- and seven-year-old girls and three- and five-year-old boys, held annually on November 15 to celebrate the growth and well-being of young children. As it is not a national holiday, it is generally observed on the nearest weekend. (WikiPedia)

1999-1998 – none

Later I will research some historical facts later to fill in the missing years.

CANCER Jan, 14, 2013

This is a day for comfort, Moonchild. You may be feeling blue or overwhelmed, and you need to spend the day seeking comfort and peace. You may have a lot on your plate right now, but it won’t hurt you to take a brief hiatus from your responsibilities wherever possible. The world will not stop if you rest today. The bigger issue is how will you change the way you’re feeling – how can you lift yourself up and feel hopeful? The universe is at work on that at this very moment. You may find it hard to believe right now, but your world will soon be much more joyful.

Well, today is indeed a day to relax. The wife didn’t feel up to travelling home from our 3rd year wedding anniversary trip to Osage Hills State Park yesterday, so we checked with the park office, and the cabin was not reserved, so we extended our stay one day.

In addition, we found out they are offering a military discount of 25%, so we get getting to stay for less than we anticipated. Yay!

We will see what joyful things the universe will throw at us next…

EDIT: I checked this post this morning to see how good the iPhone version of the WordPress app is, and it will do for mobile posting, but I had to come back and do some slight editing, mostly for paragraph and alignment issues, and to add/activate topic links.

Well, here I sit in my host family’s husbands easy chair in the living room of their house after waking up at my normal early self.

I usually cannot go back to sleep once I’m awake, so after a bathroom break I decided to sit in the easy chair and check my phone.

I thought “what can I do to keep myself entertained without my laptop?”

I then remembered seeing the iPhone app for WordPress and decided to download it and give it a try.

So far so good! I like the fact that I can create a post during idle time with stuff on my mind, maybe it will encourage me to post more often.

In other news, my extended family we have, due to marriage of my wife’s older son, has been fun to hang out with and spend the day after Thanksgiving with and have big TG dinner of ham and turkey and sides, dessert, and good company.

Well I guess I will post this and update and fine tune the post when I have access to my laptop again.

Holiday – Happy Thanksgiving Day

Happy Thanksgiving.

How appropriate that this would also be my 100th post on this blog! I didn’t plan it this way, so that makes it even more appropriate.

We will be visiting family out of town tomorrow and have our Thanksgiving dinner then, so the wife and I are vegetating and watching a show dog show on TV. Oops, the dog show just completed, and now we are watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

It looks like the parade was taped this morning in NY and just now being show in our time zone (mid afternoon).

Anyway, we will be having some ham and vegetables later today, and call it good for this day since we will be travelling a total of 4 hours tomorrow.


Happy Thanksgiving.
