Favourite quote

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Bigger is better

While I a big proponent of larger than life, I thought, well what is larger than life.

After much thought, I popped down to my local star dome, getting there with 10 minutes spare to put on my makeup before the evening show. So sitting in my car, 5 minutes is just enough time to slap on foundation, lipstick, mascara, bugger, nearly forgot the wig, Ok wig's on kind of straightish. Being dusk did not really help with the low light to do makeup with.

5 minutes down and I do a quick run across the car park, buy my entry ticket, get the girl to snap of 2 quick photos for my blog, quick to the ladies and double check the look but no time for alterations and in to the Planetarium for the show.
Man - my boobs were heaving with the effort, next time I'll have to get there early.

Planetarium, good show of the night sky, big suns and bigger galaxies, alas, not larger than life this time. 45 minutes later and we were given a run down on Exoplanets, a 10 minute Q & A session and then a play on their telescopes.

An interesting outing in which the girls probably out numbered the boys, seemed that way when I had to que in the ladies toilets.
