My View On Things

All Contents Copyright 1996-2015 by Ivory Tower Group

Welcome to my view on things of this world. This is where I get to write what I want, when I want, about things that interest me. Expect me to ramble from topic to topic, because that's what I'm going to do. If you like what you see, feel free to bookmark this site. I'll try my best to keep it fresh and updated frequently.

Rain <--click for more

I love the rain. I know a lot of people don't like dealing with the wetness that comes with rain, but this part of the country (California) could certainly use a lot more of it. Otherwise, we'll be facing another drought, and that's something we could do without.

Google Books <--click for more

I've been checking Google Books, yet another Google product that is simply amazing. They've got public domain books, excerpts from copyrighted books, and even thousands of old magazines. I checked out their Popular Mechanics offerings and found that they have issues going all the way back to 1905! If you have nothing better to do, check out one of these old magazines one day. It's a real kick to see the old advertisements and the subjects of interest of yesteryear.

Space Junk <--click for more

There's a bunch of junk floating around in space, just above our heads. A few days ago, two big chunks collided over Russia. Actually, only one was space junk and the other was an operational satellite, at least operational until the collision. Now, they are just debris. I guess that's what happens after 50 years of launching things into orbit.

I hear that we are planning on launching a new ship to take care of some of that debris. The Kirby IV will be deployed sometime next year, and it will use vacuum suction to pull space debris into its disposable bag. The disposable bag is fitted with a rocket pack that will send it to the moon. Once enough of these bags land on the moon, we'll use them to build a monument of some sort. No word yet on what the monument will commemorate.

Mary Appearance <--click for more

Lionel Gonzalez says people are welcome to view the following statue that appeared stuck to the side of his mobile home one day. It does bear a resemblence to the Virgin Mary, but I suppose what it looks like is open to interpretation. What do you think?

Conspiracy? <--click for more

Well, last year, a lot of companies simply disappeared off the face of the earth. And I've heard that many more will do the same this year. Will 2009 be as grim as all that? No one knows for sure, except perhaps those who create the news before we read about it. Conspiracy? Perhaps, but you never know.
