Beauty On An Ugly Day

The news is ugly. Our country is being ripped apart. The death toll continues to rise. Too many people continue to be more stupid by the day. Our “leadership” is actively evil and treasonous.

But these orange-ish roses are still beautiful.

I guess no one told them.

I’m not going to be the ones to break the news to them. Besides, there’s a nice new crop of fence lizards living out there.

    Thanks to the rose! It tempers our woes. And it doesn’t take a wizard To appreciate a lizard. As usual – Mother Nature Blesses us with every creature.

    Paul – from “The Week,” May 29: “Astronomers have discovered a black hole only 1,000 light years from Earth. That’s right on our doorstep, cosmically speaking. Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, is some 25,000 light years away. Located in the Telescopium constellation in the Southern Hemisphere, the new black hole is believed to be tiny: about 25 miles in diameter, with a mass four times that of the sun. The mass of Sagittarius A* is some 4 million times greater than the sun’s. Astronomers discovered the black hole by chance while investigating stars that orbit in pairs. While examining one pair, they determined that the velocity of the inner Star was so extreme that there had to be a third object flinging it around. That object, they concluded, was a black hole. Formed when big stars collapse, black holes are hard to spot because they suck in all surrounding light. Astronomers hope this discovery will lead to more. “There must be hundreds of millions of black holes out there,” study co-author Thomas Rivinius, from the European Southern Observatory, tells CBSNews.com. “Knowing what to look for should put us in a better position to find them.”
