The Civic Club has hired an attorney to straighten out our decades old mess. I'll keep you posted on his progress. I expect it won't take long and we'll get our BBQ cook off back on track. I'm going outside to fire up my smoker.
A Shout out to Rob Scherer for stepping up! Looks like P & Z is getting a new set of eyes. Now to get some more of you to get on board. R & D and the Waterfront compliance committees are loking for a few good folks. What are you waiting for? Call Karen!
From Neighbor Steve. Thanks SP! The Curiosity Mars Rover, a rover approximately the size of a Volkswagen, will land on Mars on 05 August 2012 about 8:30 pm CDST. Signals from the complex Lander System take 14 minutes to get from Mars back to NASA on Earth. From the start of entry into the Martian Atmosphere to final touchdown of the Curiosity Rover takes 7 minutes, so the Mission Control folks talk about the “Seven Minutes of Terror” they will have to wait through to know if the Rover is dead or alive.
The video “Seven Minutes of Terror” is very good, and can be seen at:
