This is a reddish moon from some other month.

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 - FULL STURGEON MOON coming to a sky near you tomorrow night.  This is just a warning.

August 1, 2012 - 11:27 p.m. EDT --Full Sturgeon Moon, when this large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, such as Lake Champlain, is most readily caught. A few tribes knew this moon as the Full Red Moon because when the moon rises, it appears reddish through sultry haze (in 2012, The Old Farmer’s Almanac gives this moniker to the full moon of Aug. 31). Other variations include the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.

Another warning:  On August 31, 2012 - we will have a BLUE MOON - the second full moon in a month.  oh boy!  later, djb

Here's one of my syringes that are filled with serum tears.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 - After the storm battered us yesterday morning, we still had electricity.  I did thank God for that!

However, at 11:11 a.m., the electricity went OUT -- no warning.  It seems that everyone else around us had no electricity and we were turned off so that they could fix the problem for EVERYONE.

I was panic-stricken because the serum tears HAVE TO remain frozen.  Thankfully, the electricity went back on after a couple of hours and I'm looking at a new plan where I freeze each syringe individually in a baggie so that if we do lose power again, I'll have a larger frozen window of opportunity.

And, I have to do it soon, because it looks like we're getting another storm tonight.  Okay, must go back and continue mowing the yard because there are leaves everywhere!!!  It's a HUGE mess.  later, djb

Tuesday, July 24, 2012 - Here's Andrew the dolphin in the pool last night (when it was clean) with a butterfly on his head.
Here's the pool this morning after the leaves were blown into it.

Jarrett, me and Andrew on February 18, 1990 in DeKalb, IL

Sunday, July 22, 2012 - It's just before 1:00 p.m. and my andrew-jarrett website is still uploading but it's not going to take as long as yesterday or the days before!  haha very funny.

It looks weird right now but once it finishes its craziness, I'll go back and fix it so the photo doesn't cover the links to the pages.

To say that it just takes time would be an understatement.  later, djb

We have so many of these stinging insects out on the deck, that I had to find out who was who.  Yikes!!

Friday, July 20, 2012 - For some reason, this date sounds familiar.  Not sure why....

Right now (6:57 a.m.), I'm waiting for my andrew-jarrett website to upload to the Yahoo! server.  Yeah, it's already there but apparently it doesn't know that. In about an hour, this process will have been going on for 24 hours!!!  wow!

Okay, I just remembered something I wanted to do.  later, djb

Here is the moon on July 2, 2012 - almost full.

Monday, July 2, 2012 - Tomorrow the moon is full.  Here's the scoop:

July 3, 2012 - 2:52 p.m. EDT -- Full Buck Moon.  This full moon was so called because it occurs when the new antlers of buck deer push out from their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur.  It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, thunderstorms being most frequent at this time. Sometimes this is also called the Full Hay Moon. Since the moon arrives at apogee less than 13 hours later, this will also be smallest full moon of 2012. In terms of apparent size, it will appear 12 percent smaller than the full moon of Jan. 10.

That's the story about the full moon.  Be careful out there because apparently, the full moon brings out the craziness in the crazy people.  later, djb
