Our friend Ed C., who is also an incredible photographer made the ultimate sacrifice this morning. He stayed up for the Lunar Eclipse of a lifetime and took photos seen here.
Tom and I did see the lunar eclipse at 4 a.m. EST today as it was ending. We got up to get Tom to work (although I'm on vacation I still needed to feed him and the dogs some breakfast). It was Cool! - The eclipse happened the same day as the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere – a rare occurrence that hasn't happened in 372 years. Happy WINTER SOLSTICE... the shortest amount of daylight in any day of the year. It brightens up from here on! :)
Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity. What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love? We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites. Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
We're two married guys who enjoy the simple things in life, especially our dogs. We volunteer for dog rescues, enjoy splitting dinners, exercising, blogging, helping friends and neighbors, ghost investigations, coffee and tea, Tudor history, weather, superheroes, comic books, mystery novels, traveling, 70s and 80s music, classic country, piano, gardening, writing books on ghosts and spirits, architecture, keeping a clean house, cooking simply, and keeping in shape. You'll find tidbits of all of these things on this blog and more.
