Saturn's moon, Enceladus, lit, on the right of the picture, by sunlight; lit, on the face, by sunlight reflected by Saturn. Please notice the ice plumes jetting from a sub-surface sea at the lower left of the picture.

Better explanation (and better, larger pic) here: APOD

The semi-local weather dude said the other night that our area has had only six days of sunshine this year.

'Splains why I'm liking this pic, I guess. Ordinarily, I would be bitching about this pic representing 100 degrees and 900% humidity, but right now it's looking pretty damn good. Even w/the rain in the background...

"Ohhhh, it's a double rainbow, all the way across the sky, well almost."

I don't really have any details. The J Boorer in question was a wheelwright and haulier. The photo was in (in a corner of) a magazine illustration for an article about that part of London (Woolwich). I found it while looking through a lot of my late father's papers this afternoon. Both my parents died in 2010 and I am now the custodian of a lot of family stuff including my father's family-history related research. If I had the time I'd really like to make a proper family album with pictures of the individuals, their parents and offspring arranged in order, and pictures of the property I have which can be identified as associated with specific people, and any stories or other information. Or do it online, probably at one of the genealogy websites so that other people can benefit from it. I have no children or nephews/nieces to pass this stuff physically onto, but am in touch with cousins' children to whom I will leave the stuff.

This is my grandmother back in the 20's. I love this picture. That car is great. Check out the farmer in the background working the field with horses.

yes wonderful picture.

I notice in the picture of the car that the wheels are wirewheels. and that each wheel has about 18 spokes supporting the car, so.. say 76 wires are enough to support the entire dynamic weight of the car. Wow.
