Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Is the sky falling?

With all the hype going on about the space junk ( very expensive 30+ years ago), are you ready for the chicken little scenario? The odds are something like one in a trillion of me (or you) being hit as an individual, but one in 3200 of somebody being hit. Quite a discrepancy! 
I guess the old saying and song "What goes up, must come down" rings true. The area is all the way from Texas  to  Edmonton and from the Pacific to Atlantic, and don't forget  about the southern tip of South America. In other words, these rocket scientists don't know squat about where ( or when) it's coming down~! 

How would you like to be on the trip to the moon, or Mars with this science at work?

Me, I'm going to wear a hard hat to bed tonight and tomorrow  just in case 

How about you? Are you prepared to meet your Maker?

My nephew Sky was born the day SkyLab fell to earth - thus the name. He's now an Astronomy professor. Makes you think about the power of names.

I don't even think about being affected by this stuff, but I WOULD love to see it re-enter....should be a fantastic sight...

I've been ready to meet my maker since 1980.

I sure hope it doesn't fall on Washington DC. That would be a sad day indeed for me. I wouldn't have anything left to complain about except for our local politicians. :-)

Hi Ian, yes I am prepared to meet my maker and when I heard about this on the news I just said, "Who cares." My grandson was pretty scared. So far we haven't heard of anyone being hurt. Yes the right thing is to be ready when God calls us no matter the hour, none of us get told when.

Yes, I'm prepared to meet my Maker. But if it falls near me and I'm still here, I'll make tons of money. :P
