Protecting Americans

We need to get serious about protecting Americans!

Congress is supposed to serve Americans, NOT the other way around. They should receive absolutely NO benefit that is not available to every other American.

If you want to be called a Public Servant, then do your job!


Congress includes both the House and the Senate

Remove health-care subsidies for Members of Congress
and their families

  • Health care funding should come out of the defense budget since it is the widest spread threat to our well-being.
  • Health care should not be a luxury allowed to only a few, but rather a right provided to all Americans.
  • End healthcare subsidies for members of Congress, or provide this service for ALL

She Persisted


"She persisted."

What a profound statement that so aptly describes how hard women have worked over the centuries to make life better for themselves and their daughters.

What most people do not realize is that when you have made life easier for the women, of all colors and beliefs, then you have made life better for their children, which makes life better for everyone - and that should be our goal as a nation, and as a planet.

Lunar Eclipse Visibility

The Snow Moon, aka the full moon of February 10-11, 2017, also brings us a penumbral lunar eclipse and the New Year Comet. The comet only appears to us earthlings every 5 years. It's a grand celestial event, even though most of us will not be able to view it.

Art PrintsOn Friday (Feb. 10), just 10 minutes after the full moon peaks, so will a penumbral lunar eclipse. The moon will spend more than 4 hours coasting through Earth's outer shadow, called the penumbra, and it will appear darker than normal.  Space.com/35627-february-full-moon.html

Interesting that this Snow Moon coincides with the winter storm now blasting the north-eastern United States.


When to see it

While lunar eclipse visibility will be at 100% for Europe and Africa, those in portions of the Americas will be able to view it only as the moon rises in the eastern sky.

The moon will first enter Earth's shadow at 5:32 p.m. EST (2232 GMT), and its moonlight will slowly but surely grow dimmer for a little over 2 hours. After the eclipse peaks at 7:43 p.m. EST (0034 GMT on Feb. 11), the bright glow of the full moon will take about another 2 hours to return to normal. The moon will be completely outside of the penumbral shadow by 9:55 p.m. EST (0255 GMT on Feb. 11).
