NASA Song Contest ~

There will only be two more Space Shuttle Launches and then ~ sadly ~ that's the end of the Shuttle Program. NASA is having a Song Contest to pick the two songs that will be played as the "wake-up" songs for the last two Shuttle Missions. As of 10/01/10 ~ there will be approx. 8000 Space Shuttle Employees laid off. I have lots of friends and family members who might lose their jobs as of 10/01. The Economy in this area is already bleak and with eight thousand unemployed shuttle workers ~ it's definitely going to get a lot worse. Hopefully ~ they will all be able to find other jobs at the Kennedy Space Center.

So ~ back to the contest........ NASA has a website where you can vote for the last two "wake up" songs that will be played for the last two Space Shuttle Missions. There are 40 songs to choose from ~ songs that were previous "wakeup songs". As of today ~ the theme Song from "Star Trek" is in the lead. I've been voting for several of my favorites like ~ "Fly me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra. Audrey Hepburn's Moon River is currenlty in LAST place. Just hop right on over here to cast your vote and view the "standings" to date.

I'm anxious to read this new book about UFO's by Leslie Kean. She was going to write a book dispealing the "myths" of UFO's. However, after 10 years of extensive research and numerous interviews with pilots ~ she's convinced that we're not alone.
"Throughout the Book, she presents irrefutable evidence that unknown flying objects—metallic, luminous, and seemingly able to maneuver in ways that defy the laws of physics—actually exist."

On a personal note ~ Baby Bunny (who's almost 14) lost both of her Basketball Games last week. She has two games this week and hopefully ~ her team will win at least one of them. And ~ Beach Bunny is sick again with a lingering cough. I just hope she can go to school in the morning. She has so many difficult classes including Physics ~ don't want her to miss any of the "notes" from that class. Maybe she'd enjoy reading the UFO book and it might even help her with her Physics class.

Space ~ the final frontier ~ these are the voyages of..............
