Happy 40th Anniversary & Happy Birthday


Just a quick break from the normal workout posts...I just wanted to say it's an exciting day today! First, it's my Mom's birthday...happy birthday Mom, I love you!

Second, it's the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11's lunar landing and Neil Armstrong's 1st steps on the Moon. Since I am a total geek, I will have to watch "From the Earth to the Moon" tonight after my Mom's birthday dinner. :-) I am still amazed at how much the US accomplished during the 60's - the 1st American in space, the 1st orbit around the Earth, putting men on the Moon. Amazing stuff indeed. I even remember writing a report about the space program in the 8th grade...back then, NASA predicted we'd have a man on Mars by 2005. About a month later, the Challenger exploded. Gee, guess we're a bit behind schedule now. Sigh.
