The story of the Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013, hybrid solar eclipse is one of the stories creating a lot of buzz on the Internet over the weekend, becoming one of
the most searched for terms on Saturday. Many are asking how they can watch the eclipse online. Here's how.

The Slooh virtual observatory will show live video feeds from telescopes in Kenya and the Canary Islands.
Three and a half hours of live online coverage begins at 6:45 a.m. ET Sunday.
You can also watch the show via Slooh's iPad app.

. . ⊱✿ ✿⊰⊹⊱✿ ✿⊰⊹⊱✿ ✿⊰⊹⊱✿ ✿⊰⊹⊱✿ ✿⊰⊹⊱✿ ✿⊰⊹⊱✿ ✿⊰ . .
"The final eclipse event of 2013 is the most interesting eclipse of the year. It is one of the rare hybrid or annular/total eclipses in which some sections of the
path are annular while other parts are total. The duality comes about when the vertex of the Moon's umbral shadow pierces Earth's surface at some locations,
but falls short of the planet along other sections of the path. The unusual geometry is due to the curvature of Earth's surface that brings some geographic
locations into the umbra while other positions are more distant and enter the antumbral rather than umbral shadow. In most cases, the central path begins
annular, changes to total for the middle portion of the track, and reverts back to annular towards the end of the path. However, November 3 eclipse is even
more unique because the central path to begins annular and ends total. Because hybrid eclipses occur near the vertex of the Moon's umbral/antumbral shadows,
the central path is typically quite narrow."

"Skywatchers in the eastern United States, northeastern South America, southern Europe, the Middle East and most of Africa will be treated to a partial solar eclipse,
while people along the path of totality in central Africa will see the sun totally obscured by Earth's nearest neighbor for a few dramatic moments.

"If you live in eastern North America, you'll have to get up early to enjoy the show. The partial eclipse will be visible at sunrise - about 6:30 a.m. local time -
and last for about 45 minutes, experts say. Viewers in Boston and New York will see the sun more than 50 percent covered by the moon, while our star will appear
47 percent obscured from Miami and Washington, D.C."

A doctor that had been seeing an 80 year old woman for most of her life finally retired.

At her next check-up, the new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medications that had
been prescribed for her. As the young doctor looked through these, his eyes grew wide as he
realized she had a prescription for birth control pills. "Mrs Smith, do you realize these are

"Yes, the help me sleep at night" replied Mrs Smith

Dr explains that there is absolutely NOTHING in there that could possibly help her sleep.

Mrs Smith reaches up and patted the young Doctor's knee.
Yes, dear, I know that. But, every morning I grind one up and mix it in the glass of
orange juice that my 16 year old granddaughter Drinks.

And, believe me, it helps me sleep at night.

You Gotta Love Grandmas!!!

Kay Kay, that is so funny..

Posted on Nov 2, 2013 10:18:51 PM PDT
KayKay, thanks for starting. Very funny story, i wasn't expecting that punch line
Sandy, how are you feeling?

KayKay says:
I'm glad that you like it. It was funny to me. Especially since my grandma (89) thinks that one Tylenol - every now and then will cure everything. And if you ask her if she has something for a headache - you guessed it - one is all that you are getting too. So funny.
She has a small and I do mean small juice glass - not much bigger than some communion cups that I have seen. And once or twice a year she will get the 2oz or so of blackberry wine. That you know will cure all tummy ailments.

The thing is - she is healthy as a horse. lol. Until 3 years ago still push mowed her own grass. And still rakes every leaf off the premises. Keeps numerous large flower beds weeded and everything perfectly manicured. Amazing lady.

Hi Elizabeth,
been pretty quiet around this weekend. Are you going to sleep in late or get up and see you the eclipse?
What about you Sandy?

Posted on Nov 2, 2013 10:31:37 PM PDT
I'm doing pretty good.. Just the usual aches and pains..
I really don't think that I will be watching the eclipse
It's been overcast for days..
I do have to go get Chris pretty soon..
Hopefully I won't have to wait as long as I did last night.

Even though I woke up early today I am still to late at the party ;-)
So I say both Hi and sleep well to those I have missed - Elizabeth is hopefully in bed now and LoB too - hope you feel much better when you wake ♥

KayKay, Thanks for starting again. Loved the story! Thank goodness I had only sons and now only grandsons so I can sleep at night without the help of birth control pills.

LOB, I do hope you wake up feeling refreshed and a lot better. Hopefully the effects you were talking about disappear and only the good ones remain.

We are getting ready for a braai (South African barbeque) because my son and his family are coming over. Just killed a big black snake. I'm not sure what it was but I don't want any sort of snake around with my grandsons! A dead snake is a harmless snake!

I know that many, many of the regular posters bought this book quite some time ago but I missed it then - since it is still free at time of posting I thought newer posters might be interested too and I have now 1-clicked too

The Rocking Horse by Gloria Zachgo
Publication Date: September 11, 2011
Can a family that has been savagely ripped apart find healing and redemption? Are the mysteries hidden in the human heart destined to reveal themselves? The Rocking Horse, Gloria Zachgo's spellbinding suspense novel, charts the harrowing emotional journey of one family that is torn asunder, then magically drawn together again.

Jenny Preston has been missing for twenty-two years after being taken at the age of two on the very night her mother Amanda, Aunt Ruth, and Uncle Don were brutally and senselessly murdered. While Jenny's grandparents learn to cope with the tragedies, the sheriff, Will Barclay, must grapple with his own guilt and secrets involving the murders. The crime, which rocked the small town of Shady Creek, Kansas, has never been solved.

More than two decades later, a woman who calls herself Julie Hendricks is led by a childhood toy to Shady Creek, where she finds refuge from an abusive husband. Living on her own for the first time in her life, she starts to regain her self esteem and make new friends. Her life is then turned upside down again when she discovers she may be the child that was abducted from this very town so many years ago.

With the encouragement of her new friends, and a very special someone, she returns to Chicago to learn the truth of her childhood history from her father. After a gripping turn of events, Julie returns to Shady Creek to wrestle with the emotional complexities of her new life and how her past life is starting to catch up with her. An unexpected hero comes to Julie's aid.

A story of family, home, and the grave consequences of actions, The Rocking Horse explores the aftermath of the most unimaginable heartache: the disappearance of a child. Fast-paced and full of intrigue, this riveting read mines the depths of the human heart on its road to recovery.

I will share my grandma - but be warned- she speaks her mind about whatever is on her mind. lol.
She makes excellent tea cakes (really a crisp cookie) but my fav so we can all have a spot of tea and tea cakes.

My sentiments exactly regarding a snake - not around my grands. Also glad you didn't barbeque it - although around here plenty eat rattlesnake. - ugh, I can't imagine.
