    Best Lyrics Ever

    Sometimes we live no particular way but our own And sometimes we visit your country and live in your home Sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own

    I Remember

    Catherine, who referred to herself as a mediocre poet, was in Manhattan that day. She wrote this soon after: September 12th There was this beautiful day. The sky was so blue: the kind of blue you buy for someone giving birth to a baby boy, somewhere in the world that beautiful day baby boys were being born like we are awakening to the world through labor and crying. There was this thunderstorm. Shaking the windows and my sleep: I dreamed I was in labor, an ill sleep, a bad dream like this humanity that keeps giving birth to itself, this humanity that does bad things to babies and dreams and buildings. In my dream the baby boy spoke: 'I'm looking for my wife. She was in Tower One (which does not exist anymore, doesn't he know that?) and she was wearing two diamond rings because yesterday was our anniversary.” I awoke to this man's crying: a baby boy all grown up his voice pitched high awakened me and we labored together in thunderous blue all towers and sleepiness our sorrows collapsing. His whole life had become a bad dream, from which he, will probably, never awaken.

    Bride asks guests to pay $1500 each to attend her wedding

    There's a big difference between a wedding and a marriage. The husband and I just celebrated our 30th anniversary yesterday by going out to lunch at a diner. Life is good!

This moon has also been known as the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon.

    Mercury at Greatest Western Elongation on August 26. The planet Mercury reaches greatest western elongation of 18.3 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Mercury since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky. Look for the planet low in the eastern sky just before sunrise.

    Perseids Meteor Shower on August 12-13. The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24. It peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. The thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for what should be an excellent show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

    New Moon and Partial Solar Eclipse on August 11. The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This phase occurs at 09:58 UTC. When the Moon is New, it rises at dawn, is directly overhead at midday, and sets at dusk. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. A partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon covers only a part of the Sun, sometimes resembling a bite taken out of a cookie. A partial solar eclipse can only be safely observed with a special solar filter or by looking at the Sun's reflection. The partial eclipse will be visible in parts of northeast Canada, Greenland, extreme northern Europe, and northern and eastern Asia. It will be best seen in northern Russia with 68% coverage.

    Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower on July 28-29. The Delta Aquarids is an average shower that can produce up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by debris left behind by comets Marsden and Kracht. The shower runs annually from July 12 to August 23. It peaks this year on the night of July 28 and morning of July 29. The nearly full moon will be a problem this year, blocking out all but the brightest meteors, but if you are patient, you should still be able to catch a few good ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

    Mars at Opposition on July 27. The red planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Mars. A medium-sized telescope will allow you to see some of the dark details on the planet's orange surface.

During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of Europe, Africa, western and central Asia, the Indian Ocean, and Western Australia.
