One of the problem with scheduling all your weekend posts is you miss important stuff.  Important like the news that Neil Armstrong died on Saturday at the age of 82.  

Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969, just over a year before I was born.  He was a true pioneer in every sense of the word.  As much as any man can be, he was a hero too.  He and all the astronauts both before and after him, are people that I hold in the highest regard.

Rest in peace Neil.


  1. Wasn't just you that "missed" it (plus you have a valid excuse and are not a major media outlet)--it certainly wasn't the huge news story it should have been. Too bad he was never spotted in the vicinity of a Kardashian...

  2. Almost importantly, he was able to become famous even though he was a reserved, quiet, private individual. I don't think that is possible today.

  3. Does it rain this fast and hard on the moon ?
