Shuttle's Toilet Requires Special Training

I have always wondered EXACTLY how people ... mmmmm.... how they did their business in space.  This is a NASA piece that shows how it is done.  I KNOW you have wondered also.

An experiment

I am experimenting (well maybe more than experimenting since I bought a premium membership) with a piece of software call "Evernote". The logo for the software is a stylized elephant and the tagline is: "Use Evernote to save your ideas, things you see, and things you like. Then find them all on any computer or device you use. For free." You can use the service for free... I chose to upgrade to a premium account. Since I have more than one computer that I work on..being able to access the same information on all my computers was a definite plus. Google Docs does some similar kinds of things...and I love google docs, but I hate the idea of putting all my "eggs" in one basket. I'll update you on how it is working.

Support a local artist

Click on the title and go to the Blog of my nephew, Dana Chabino. Dana is a talented local (i.e. Wichita Kansas) artist and I would encourage you to take a look at his art and enjoy it. I think he has a good "eye" (and yes I admit to a degree of bias).
