Good Morning Sunshine


Summer at the Tavern is always sunny and warm. Except of course for those days when it is overcast, raining or blowing the roaring 40's gale, which in summer are just 'occasional', to keep us on our toes. 

Everywhere on the good Earth we can see a sunrise every day. Good, eh? 

Our own local sunrise is unique. The cloudscapes and the hills or horizons we have differ everywhere so we get 'special' treats all the time mixed in with the familiar.

Tasmania. Sunrise over The Nut.
But step back, as Dr Ken does, and we see the really spectacular.

Ken Kremer was showing his snaps around in the US Room. There was a fine crowd in there to pass them around. He came a long way. From around the world. In fact hundreds of times around the world !

He is a space doc, you see. And a fine photographer.



This is the sort of sunrise he has become used to.



And this.



Mind you, he does have the best seat outside of the house.


You can see more and follow at:  http://www.universetoday.com/118863/gorgeous-sunrises-auroras-landscapes-and-more-from-space-station-crew/

Or go to visit him directly at: 
http://www.rittenhouseastronomicalsociety.org/Dr.Kremer/K.htm

Meanwhile these are some of the snaps he was passing around.







Not one of Ken's perhaps, but how can I not put it here? 

We are very small. The Earth is large. The Universe is really Big.

But we can see.

We can appreciate the Universe that cannot see, except through OUR eyes.

Grace comes not just or only through wine and fine ales but just and only however the Great Supplier wants to provide it.

Drink up the view. He wants you to see this and marvel at his Creation.



Pax.

  8. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post
    to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

    compatibility issues. When I look at your site in Safari, it
    looks fine however, when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, wonderful site!

Our Bouncer is a gentleman of muscle and guile. His patience has limits. He will check you at the door.

The Tavern gets rowdy visitors from time to time. Some are brain dead and some soul dead. They attack customers and the bar staff and piss on the carpets. Those people will not be allowed in anymore. So... Be Nice..
