MUST WATCH! Cosmos w/ Neil deGrasse Tyson: A Space Time Odyssey Episode 1

Wow. We just watched the National Geographic/Fox Program Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson - American astrophysicist, director of the Hayden Planetarium, and popularizer of science.
EVERYONE who wants to be educated about the cosmos, the universe, solar system, history and science should watch this 45 minute presentation. FINALLY, a science show that will educate as it should. 
  - Neil does an outstanding job narrating, and it's done in an easy-to-understand way. The visuals are stunning and the look back into history and how painfully science evolved was refreshing. 
  Every child, teen, and adult needs to know the basics of science and this is a great introduction. 
  For those who refuse to watch and learn and choose to believe stupidly that the Earth is 6,000 years old, you are as foolish as those in the 1500s who put people to death who had the vision to look beyond ancient beliefs and traditions. We can only grow if we open ourselves up to discovery - otherwise we remain ignorant. Science is a growing, ever-changing, dynamic field of new discoveries every day. BE A PART OF THAT.  (Yes, as a meteorologist, I'm very passionate about science). - Rob
 *UPDATE: Sadly the video has been pulled off of You Tube... but keep looking. I'm sure that National Geographic and Fox will re-run it.**

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

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.
