Hello Nope, Hempburn could probably give you some pointers on the telescope. He is a sky watcher too.

I hope you are having a warm evening. We are under another winter storm warning until Sunday afternoon. Some more of that white stuff. lol

Me too. I would love to see it. I would imagine there is a livestream through a NASA site or somewhere if you don't have the equipment to see clearly. Feb 15th, I will have to mark that on my calendar.

I could USE some "pointers"!!
Pun there? Yep!!
I had forgotten that Hemp was into stargazing too! Thanks AB!

Sometimes this thing is a little bit intimidating. It has a hand help programming pad that's a little difficult to manage, but I have been able to see some pretty awesome things. What I would really like to do is purchase a filter for seeing the full moon. The light of a full moon is too intense for the lenses I have..

I'd also like to purchase an adapter to hook my digital camera up to the view finder..

So Hemp, if you're willing and on a night when my brain isn't too foggy, maybe you can give me some advice, if you'd not mind?

Tonight I'm too weary. I had a busy day here and am too tired to list all of the technical specs of my telescope, hehe.

McConnell joins backers of Kentucky industrial hemp bill; Rogers still opposes

http://www.courier-journal.com/article/201301...

The two most senior members of Kentucky’s federal congressional delegation have taken opposite sides in the debate over legalizing industrial hemp in Kentucky.

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Thursday that he is supporting the effort to legalize the product —saying he’s been convinced of its economic potential for Kentucky’s farmers and his state’s economy.

But U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers, the 5th District Republican who chairs the House Appropriations Committee, said in a statement later in the day that he remains unconvinced that the economic potential outweighs the concerns of law enforcement.

Kentucky Senate Bill 50, pushed by state Agriculture Commissioner James Comer, would allow production of industrial hemp if the federal government reclassified the plant as separate from marijuana.

Hemp seeds produce plants with less than 1 percent THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, which has between 3 percent and 15 percent THC.
The Kentucky State Police oppose the bill, saying it would make enforcement efforts against marijuana, which looks identical to hemp, more difficult. Also opposing the bill are the Kentucky Narcotic Officers’ Association and Operation UNITE, an Eastern Kentucky drug eradication group founded by Rogers.

Besides McConnell, a Republican, the bill is backed by U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-3rd District, and U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-4th District, all three of whom are scheduled to testify Feb. 11 before the Senate Agriculture Committee........

Kentucky is doomed to remain 50 years behind in the times. It's been that way since I first started to notice it as a kid, and it will be that way loooong after I'm gone. This state will have a very hard time being able to catch up at this point and time. It will take generations to pull it off.

What I used to consider part of the Kentucky charm, I now see as pure stubbornness toward anything progressive..

I'm SO thankful I chose to move back here only after I no longer needed to depend on our local mindset or economy to support myself. Sad to say that out loud, but it's true...

Yes! There IS a site for that! I viewed the last meteor shower on it in real time after I froze half to death out there for an hour, LOL!. If I've got it bookmarked I'll post it. If not, I'll hunt it down for you!

I might have a better time viewing it that way myself. This telescope I have can be laptop/computer linked, so it will be on anyway, ROFLMBO!!

This is a pretty interesting site, by the way:
http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-...

It talks about the DA14 Asteroid in pretty good detail.
Thank You

You know partner and I have thought the Hopkinsville area might be nice place to live. But we've decided financially when to move it'll most likely be a state like Arizona: camping, fishing, horses. Daughter wants a white horse.Hehe. You have the progression part right. It's so hard to believe the state produces Bourbon you know. The fanatical naysayers against alcohol. The state seems stuck in Prohibition times when drinking went underground. If a hemp business could flourish, I'm for it 100 percent. I wish you luck with that new telescope. I cannot wait to get a camera that will get shots of the moon;)

That's the only type of honey I'll purchase. Raw and unprocessed.

I've had this telescope for probably two years now. But for viewing in my area, I'm in the middle of the woods. So when it's warm, I have trees in the way. When the leaves fall, it's too dang cold, hehe!

I'm a wuss in the frigid temps. My bones ache to badly due to Arther Itis and his ever present entourage of groupies.

I've had a few lucky nights viewing though! It's always hit and miss when there is something in the sky for me to view. My luck tends to lean toward the sad fact that it's going to be an overcast night about 80% of the time..

(I rarely play the Lotto either.. I'm just not one of those naturally lucky people. ROFLMBO)!!

Thanks, and you're very welcome!

I'm still searching for that live feed site though. I'm just getting too tired now to keep running down links... I think I'll call it a night and continue the search tomorrow. It was really a nice camera and view they had set up for the meteor shower a month or so ago.

I'll talk to you all tomorrow.

Goodnight!

I'd keep it and trim it as long as it's healthy and not giving you headaches from the length and thickness. Men tell on themselves when it comes to what they really like in a woman or love. Hey, the older you get and things start falling and failing you will know exactly what I mean. LOL.
hahaha! yes gravity is an evil old little troll with a deplorable sense of humor..lol

we have been having the hair fight for the better part of a decade now... he wont let me cut my hair and i wont let him keep a stash (it breaks my face out)... we both act as tho we are doing these things for each other but really... i like to keep my hair longer so i have something to work with and he aint got the patience to sit around trimming up a perfect stash. he has to keep a clean shave for work anyway and would rather just shave it all off than spend the time manicuring. but be that as it may, we still bicker and wanh back and forth about how unfair it is for the other to ask these things :)
you know... we drive each other crazy to keep each other sain.....

we ran into my mother inlaw in price-less today and i asked if she wanted to come eat lunch with us. she asked where we were thinking of going and he replied," i dont know we havent decided yet... but i can tell you its not going to be where i want to go..."
touche honey touche.... lol

looks like i missed everybody....

had fun reading up about everybodys furry family members.
i see some really great pet owners at work but i also see first hand how awful people can be to animals. we get a lot of dogs and cats with their collars embedded in their necks and some on the brink of starvation and even this time of year, anemic from horrible flea infestations. breaks my heart that anyone could put gods creations thru the things they do. i got to go on a call to animal control with my boss not to long ago to help hold down a miniature poodle who bore a striking resemblance to my Joe. they found her half starved and covered in thick mats with twigs and briers all stuck in the mats. when we did finally get her all cleaned up we realized that she had a really bad abcess on her shoulder. once we got it open and were cleaning it up we realized she had been shot with a pellet gun, obviously up close because it had managed to penetrate her skin like that. i couldn't help it i was beside myself balling like a baby. so sad. all the while she was so sweet to us and thankful be getting some love and attention and just happy to have some food and be out of the cold.

the ones who come in with truly pampered pets are borderline insufferable to talk to sometimes, asking a thousand and one questions but they give me hope in humanity also. Ghandi said you can judge the character of a nation by how they treat animals.

Oh me.. I tried to go to sleep, it's not happening yet. My back is giving me fits. I'm having those horrible "electric" shooting pains and there isn't a pill on Earth that will touch it.. Well, I assume there probably ARE medications out there that might touch it, but I personally don't want to touch THEM. I'll go until I can't.. These feel like some masochistic demon is putting a taser to my lower back and taking their sweet time letting go of the power trigger....

Anyway, I've been scouring the web for that web site to view the asteroid from and still can't find it. BUT: As I always seem to do, I get sidetracked onto other interesting tidbits of news.

I read up on that "Planet X", aka "Nibiru" and the quote, un-quote, pole shifts that we hear so much about. Interesting reading, if you can find a web page that is credible.
(Which is rather difficult)...

THEN you eventually get lead to the NASA web sites.
(But who do we REALLY think we can believe)??

I have trust issues with Uncle Sam and his faithful mass media minions. Yet how are we to trust these web publications that thrive on sensationalism either?

Anyway, my conclusion? This bug-out bag and survival stash I've put together is still a good idea as far as I'm concerned....

(continued):

Apparently, someone has compiled a list of the rich and powerful, who by the way are some well known leaders in world affairs and computer technology, who're heading for the hills. They said to have been building underground bunkers which are well stocked highly secret, secluded, etc.

It WAS kind of ironic to read just who all has been leaving very lucrative business careers with no plans of employment or strategies of any kind. Just up and quitting their jobs, fading into the abyss with no explanations..

Odder still is the fact that these elite from our own country are moving away from the coastlines and the mid-western regions. They're leaving well known areas with fault lines, potentially flood prone areas such as seashores and coastlines, etc.
Some of them, no even one knows where they've gone..

Pretty strange, huh? Then again, what are we supposed to believe.

Hey, if it's on the internet it HAS to be the truth. They can't lie on the internet, right? ROFLMBO!
(Halfheartedly, I'm ROFLMBO)......
Thank you

Even Adolph Hitler took care of his dog. He tried to enforce laws to protect animals. Although I did disagree with his behavior in the end:( Blonde was beautiful German shepherd.

Yes, you know I heard one time that the truth lies somewhere between fact and fiction. You'll hear a report saying something was discovered one day then find oh there are inaccuracies. For instance, I read several articles on aloe Vera gel. Seems like a doctor in 1997 said it was healthy to consume. It was safe in lab rats. Great for everything;) Here recently, that notion has been reversed. No,no,no use it on the skin only. So, what do health nuts like myself do? I think, I'll research history because I South Americans and Native Americans always used what nature provided not some synthetically created pill that causes liver failure and stomach bleeding. They were more sensible.

I surely hope that is the case. I would hate for Kentucky to "catch up" with some of the weirdness that occurs elsewhere. I take pride in being a 'hick" LOL
