STARGAZING

Orion, The Giant Hunter

 

Orion is the brightest constellation in the winter sky and is very easy to find. It looks something like its namesake, the Hunter, and radiates with fascinating stars.

Look in the southern sky at least an hour after sunset. Locate the three stars that resemble steps in a stairway. This marks the hunter's belt and is the center of the figure. Find the four large stars forming a crude rectangle. Betelgeuse is Orion's shoulder and Rigel is Orion's foot.

DEAR MAE JULIAN,

Dear Readers,

 

I took my granddaughter out to Cave Hill Cemetery yesterday. The weather was beautiful and Cave Hill is beautifully historic. It has five lakes and the tombstones date back before the Civil War. The only other place I have been that awakens the senses like Cave Hill are the cemeteries in New Orleans.

Because it has been so well-tended and unmolested, it seems to command the respect of a senior statesman. The geese, ducks, swans, birds, peacocks, turkeys, and many other...

NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

Dear Cousin,

 

It is a silent, white world in our hills this morning. Deep snow muffles the everyday sounds; not even a blue jay's scream or the caw of a crow is heard. There is virtually no traffic on the narrow road up the hill, and no airplanes can be heard. We seem isolated in our own little world, and it is land of pristine beauty. From the tall hemlocks that droop heavy-laden boughs toward the ground, to the lowliest twig on the azalea bush, everything is covered with white.

The New iMac from Apple Computer.

 

In the difficult and dark times of the digital information age comes a spark of hope and glory that the industry has needed since the introduction of Microsoft Windows 95. In 1994 when Windows 95 was introduced, people flocked to the stores to buy a new computer and use all these new tools. Also during that time, the Internet was growing at an un-measurable rate.

Now an all new iMac is totally redesigned from the bottom up. Apple is now fulfilling the...

DEAR MAE JULIAN,

Dear Readers,

 

I used to listen to my grandmother say, "where does the time go?" Well, back then it didn't mean a thing to me, for I was young with my whole life ahead of me. Now, as I approach my 61st birthday, I ask, "where does time go?" Do you remember your grandmother also saying, "you children are growing like weeds!" and, having lived in your body you haven't noticed the passage of time. Now, I understand what I didn't understand then.

Here are two of my precious grandchildren...
