"Ready For Some Good News" - Essra Mohawk, 2006
After two of our three days of long weekend were a washout (high winds and rain) in the south of England, I'd like refocus on the positive by mentioning two really good pieces of news from the past few days.
First is Lewis Hamilton's win in Monte Carlo on Sunday. Well done, Lewis! And what an entertaining race to watch, too...in such a beautiful part of the world.
And the second was the landing of NASA's Phoenix mission to Mars. As somebody who grew up glued to books about rockets and space exploration, dreaming about someday being the first psychologist on a space station (so how did I end up trading oil....?), I am so excited about this next step in exploration of another planet, and I await more photos and information from the Phoenix!
There are so many awful stories being reported in the news at the moment -- China Burma, Middle East conflict, high fuel prices, mortgage defaults, youth crime, etc. -- so in my own head, I'm really fighting to focus my attention on all the good stuff.
