In memoriam

Three former space pioneers were honored during the 47th annual Apollo 1 Memorial Ceremony Jan. 27 at Launch Complex 34, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The memorial honored crew members, Command Pilot Virgil "Gus" Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White II and Pilot Roger B. Chaffee, who were killed by a flash fire during a launch pad test of their Saturn 1B rocket, Jan. 27, 1967.

Pete Seeger, the singer, folk-song collector and songwriter who spearheaded an American folk revival and spent a long career championing folk music as both a vital heritage and a catalyst for social change, died on Monday Jan 27 in Manhattan. He was 94.

Watch clips from the 2008 film, 'The Power of Song':

It was on this day (Jan. 28) in 1986 that stunned viewers across the world saw the Challenger space shuttle explode on television. The broadcast was being carried all over the place because the crew included the first teacher in space, Christa McAuliffe. The planned six-day mission, however, lasted just over a minute before catastrophe occurred.

On the lighter side, a discussion about skittles.

Skittles is an old European lawn game, a variety of bowling from which ten-pin bowling, duckpin bowling, candlepin bowling (in the United States), and five-pin bowling (in Canada) are descended. In regions of the United Kingdom the game remains a popular indoor pub game.

Or skittles are:

A favorite candy of kids.
It was created 40 years back and throughout the time it has been updated and marketed to always look colorful and attractive.

Skittles was introduced for the first time in US markets in 1974. The candy was loosely based on the M&M products that have a colorful candy shell and a chocolate center. Still it has a colorful shell and instead of chocolate center, the center has a fruity and sometimes sour taste in it. In addition, Skittles prints a small `s' on each of its candies instead of where the M&M logo is found on M&M candies.

While it was originally made in England, the production of these candies moved to the US after becoming popular over there. Mars Corporation which is perhaps one of the largest candy makers today currently owns Skittles.

The original skittles has five different fruit flavors that include grape, strawberry, lemon, lime and orange. Furthermore, Skittles has other varieties available that include Skittles Candies Tropical, Skittles Candies Original Flavor and Skittles Bite Size Candies Smoothie Mix. They feature smooth fruit combinations which include mango, peach pear and orange.

Skittles was extended with the release of Skittles Bubble Gum in the summer of 2004. In addition to the crunchy candy shell, the difference was the center having a fruit flavor and soft bubble gum.

Skittles is easily eatable, it is an attractive candy which is wrapped in a colorful shell. The complete process of creating Skittles takes nearly 8 hours. First, the chewy center is created which is primarily made of sugar and other ingredients including fruit juice, citric acid, hydrogenated vegetable oil, natural & artificial flavors. When the center is completed, these centers are coated with a sugar flavored shell. This process is called panning. These shells are then polished and blended. The logo `s' is then printed on each candy. Finally it is packed and is ready for sale.

The marketing slogan `Taste the rainbow' is the identity of Skittles. Skittles has recently launched aninternet marketing campaign in 2009 for promoting their candies in a more aggressive way on social networks including Skittles is sold today worldwide in more than 65 countries and is still one of the most popular and available candy brand. It is manufactured in the Czech Republic for European markets and in Victoria for markets in Australian and New Zealand.

Facts on Skittles!!

Each day over 200, 000 000 of Skittles sweets will have been made. That is enough to give each child in the U.S. at least one skittle.

Did you know that Strawberry is the only one that is found in all of the Skittles Candies products including Tropical Skittles, Wild Berry Skittles, Sour Skittles and Skittle Crazy Cores?

In 1980, the skittle factory tried to steal the m&m recipe. they took the wrong one creating a chewy circle called the skittle!

The idea of sour skittles was stolen from sour patch kids!

Hi Robb
Thank you for doing the start and making my mouth water - used to love Skittles when in the UK but they are not available here - thanks for the memories. :-)
Do hope that you have a good night and day in front of you

You are welcome Red.
Probably a bit expensive to have Amazon drop some by....
Just enjoying the rain at the moment. As Marilyn mentioned, we are experiencing a minor drought at the moment. All the water seems to be dumping in the East and Mid west.

@ Robb
The weather seems to be really weird everywhere, you have a drought, some have sun and so many are dealing with freezing conditions - I wish some sunshine in everyone's lives today

I'll admit that the non grey days have been nice but they come with a price - low snowpack.

Off to bed. Hope your day is good.

Hi Robb,

Thanks for getting us started today.

We also don't have skittles here but we do have M&M's. I have actually never eaten them but went into the M&M shop in London on my last visit and was absolutely amazed at it. Multiple stories of sweets. Good gracious!!

You Don't Need to Be a Weatherman...
It was two o'clock in the morning and a husband and wife were asleep, when suddenly the phone rang.
The husband picked up the phone and said, "Hello? ... How the heck do I know? What am I, the weather man?" -- and promptly slammed the phone down.
His wife rolls over and asks, "Who was that?"
The husband replies, I don't know. Some guy who wanted to know if the coast was clear.

I just "spoke" to LOB who sends love to all her friends here, specially to you Red.

Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was
really peeved.

She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the
driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE !!"

The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke
up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box
gift-wrapped, in the middle of the driveway.

Confused, the wife put on her robe, ran out to the driveway and brought
the box back into the house.

She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.

Bob has been missing since Friday.

Hi Sandy, I wondered where you were but suspected that's what had happened.

It's really good that you are getting some sleep. Today might be strange indeed! Imagine sleeping at night and being awake during the day:)

How are you feeling?

Hi KayKay, good to see you too.

I've been meaning to ask and didn't like to until you posted about your little GS yesterday, how is he now? Are there any more operations in the future or are they now a thing of the past?

It must have been such a difficult time for you all.

Messages: Book 1 in the David Chance Series (Suspense, Mystery, Thriller)
David Chance can see messages in the sea of words around him, messages that warn him of future events.

Words are everywhere-- on labels, magazines, sign posts, t-shirts-- everywhere. And as much as David Chance would like to hide from them, he can't. Words keep leaping off objects around him, forming messages in his mind. But how is this possible? Has his brain suddenly taken an evolutionary leap forward, or are the mysterious messages proof of divine intervention?

Driven to answer a question he'd long ago abandoned, and stalked by the killer he's trying to stop, David risks everything to follow the messages to a dirty bomb set to go off in the heart of Boston. But can he trust the author of the messages to protect him from a terrorist who seems to know his every move.
