A Reminder of Why We Have Dominion over the Beasts of the Fields

It's been a rough couple of weeks around El Rancho Terra Firma. What with earth quakes in Asia, catastrophic fires on the Indian sub-continent, continuing snowfall (yes, it's late April but so what?) across the Mid-West of the USA and the approaching, encroaching police state response to the senselessness of the Boston post-Marathon bombing, we've given each other some hard lessons lately.

Our lives and times seem much harder than they once were, and I'd suggest, they are. But being the Crown of Creation is a full-time job and like it or not we are up to the task, despite occasional setbacks and slip-ups...

In case you think we're losing our touch, cast a look and give a listen to this video that NASA, yeah, that NASA, the one so many of us mumble and grumble about at budget time and wonder 'what do they bring to the table?' has created.

Lilies of the Field? Nice. Selected primates' use of primitive tools. Okay. The achievements of a criminally underfunded agency dedicated to our unceasing exploration of this universe and all the ones we can find? Check, please.
We may be lonely but we are not alone, except with our thoughts......

Wow! What a ride! The video dwarfed all my smart ass comments about pillow talk between Ferdinand and Isabella and left me speechless.

Thanks for the share.
