• We were lucky this time. When the moon’s eclipse was full last night, there were only scattered clouds and it was pretty spectacular.
  • Yesterday, a 16 year old classmate of one of my sons was killed in a car accident. He was in a (probably speeding) 4 wheel drive, his neighbour on the wheel. Lost control, skidded 200 yards, ended against a tree. The driver has minor injuries. About a year ago, another of his classmates died after being hit by a car and a 3 month coma.
  • Family surprize. Again yesterday got a phone call. Turns out my parents are married 60 years next tuesday. The major of the small town they live in will join the party. Not big news, but what is weird all the kids believed they married in September. As it seems (think 1947, war hardly over, rebuilding the country), they married legally in March and in church in September.
