Cats (part 5) - Christmas with a cat by a fireplace

Joy/everystockphoto.com

Thanksgiving is over...

Winter is coming...

Christmas is coming...

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays from now until New Years 2020.



Time to catch our breaths. 
Chill. 
Watch feel good movies.

Sit by the fire side with a loved one. 
A beloved cat or dog. 

I wish all my readers the best for 2020.

Relax. 
Be in the moment. 
Be warm. 
Be safe.

10C (part 1) - The Ten Commandments

Rembrandt - Moses with the Ten Commandments/ wikipedia.com

It was 1956 
and it was a very good year.

The year The Ten Commandments hit the silver screen. Starring Charlton Heston as Moses.

For it's time, the movie had wonderful special effects. Especially this, showing the finger of God writing in stone. AndHe spoke in King James English.





Much has been written about them. A few words as potent as an atom bomb. After 3000 years, they are as relevant then as now for making a better world.




Ironically, YouTube has been censoring the Ten Commandments with the lamest of excuses: Dennis Prager: YouTube censored my 10 Commandments video for ‘discussing murder’ 

Thus, the motivation of this new thread.

Introduction down, 10 more posts to follow.

So it begins.

Cats (part 4) - Enya, music, seasons, and cats

White Cat/wikipedia.com
Fall is coming.

Change of season. New rhythms.  Life goes on and on as expressed in song...


Every summer sun
Every winter evening
Every spring to come
Every autumn leaving
You don't need a reason
Let it all go on and on





There's something about this song with the fleeting scenes of a white cat.

The beauty. The mystery. The freedom. The wildness. Living in the moment.

And a cat that captures that spirit.

Space (part 3): Apollo 11 Golden Anniversary

Aldrin Apollo 11/wikipedia.com


September 12, 1962

President John F Kennedy offered this vision for our country: Go to the moon!



"We choose to go to the moon," the president said.
"We choose to go to the moon in this decade
and do the other things,
not because they are easy,
but because they are hard,
because that goal will serve to organize
and measure the best of our energies and skills,
because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept,
one we are unwilling to postpone,
and one which we intend to win,
and the others, too."

Reference: JFK's 'Moon Speech' Still Resonates 50 Years Later

July 20, 1969

We aimed for the moon.
And before the end of the decade, 
we hit our target.

Physics (part 6) - Eclipse 1919

wikipedia/1919eclipse

May 29, 1919

The day that made Einstein world-famous.

And it was on that day astronomer Sir Arthur Eddington experimentally confirmed Einstein's Theory of General Relativity.

After World War I, Eddington had secured an expedition to West Africa to observe the total solar eclipse. The results showed starlight was displaced along the sight line near the sun. Just as Einstein had predicted.

So we could say--Eddington made Einstein famous. {Reference: The man who made Einstein world-famous}

 Check out the video below:




 A new paradigm shift for the new science of the 20th century. And the re-writing of many science books.

A hundred years ago. Goodbye Newton. Goodbye Euclid. And the rest is history.


Happy Relativity Centennial.
