Remember his space flight? He is the one on the National Geographic Magazine floating around outside the capsule in space on his space flight.
Check his stats out here:
Pretty impressive!
He's still the same nice  guy who took the time to give us a personal tour around the Johnson Space Center when we got to visit the family there without much warning.
He's been the same nice guy through all the years before and after his flight.

Check out this article I just found online that he wrote in 2004 and look at his thoughts through our eyes here in  2012:

Who Fell Asleep in a Tanning Booth and missed several day games with the Orioles?

Duke Towers

So pretty in their setting!

I have REALLY enjoying entering and digging into the world of blogs and websites of people with passions connecting with others of similar passions in recent years. So much fun!

For all my quilting friends I have discovered this one through Pinterest and recommend it to other quilters!
I now am  able to reconnect with my quilting passion and loving it!

Is Your Credit Card Safe? Check this out...

Wi-Fi Symbol on your Credit Card


I read this about a couple weeks ago, and then checked my cards for the little "Wi-Fi Signal Icon" on each one. I found none w/that signal on them, but I was determined to watch for it when my cards came in on renewals. Well, yesterday I got my CHASE SLATE card AND THERE IT WAS ! My first time to see it. I'll not activate that card after seeing this. I guess I'll go to the bank and see if I can replace it w/a non Wi-Fi (Radio Frequency Card)....?

Baltimore Crabs

When you leave Baltimore you never forget the taste of the crabs you caught and ate there  and you continue to miss them. In fact you meet up with other Baltimore friends at Wendys the hot spot in Sun City Center Florida on Saturday nights and remember together the Orioles, Colts and crabs from Charm City. Since we couldn't get to Baltimore  with the time we had for our Sept vacation, our family found this neat spot in the hills of northern Virginia called Lowrys Crab Shack Hamilton Va for us. And I have to confess this crabcake was as good as the ones we used to have at Arundel Seafood in Pasadena Md years ago. Florida crabs are REALLY good too but with a different type of taste.
