When NASA started sending astronauts into space, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.
The Russians used a pencil.

One pencil can write a line up to 35 miles long OR 45,000 words or compose 138 songs. And when you are trying to figure something out, it makes a great 'chew' toy.
Happy Tax Time!!!

We are on the edge of the Poconos and it is dawning a lovely day. Will be at least 70 and possibly more today. Last meeting will be this AM. Heading home after lunch today. We had to stop twice on the way over due to having trouble with the windshield wiper. We almost lost it. It rained almost the whole way over. Some heavy downpours to light showers and maybe a let up twice. Thank God for a safe trip down. April is doing well at son's house.
Our hostess made lasagna last night after early evening meeting and, of course, it was so absolutely delicious I had a second helping. But, I had a nice bunch of salad, too. Probably will have to fast at least two days to get rid of the extra. Oh, yah!
Have great Sunday, All!

Day ten of my self challenge.
Way over on my carbs--according to what I wanted to do. Darn pasta anyway! Oh, well, got spinach and cukes in, banana and protein and fit my two chocolate kisses in at dinner. Reached my step goal and two workouts. More great days than good this week!
This weekend we are going away. That may be a whole different story! Should be able to get my steps in though.
Have a good night, All!
