Finally it is here ! The Great American Eclipse day… we found a spot just over the Kentucky border … weather still good. Few clouds. Praying …
Stay tuned ! For those in BELGIUM we have Boudewijn van Spilbeeck with us and we will be on the 19h news !
And some pictures showing Auriga and Perseus. One has a perseid ! All in all not a lot of meteors yet. Fingers crossed for tonight.
This is recommended for a rainy Sunday… The Irish comedian – and scientist – Dara O’Briain followed the world famous scientist Stephen Hawking in his daily life. We get some great glimpses of his work and family and also of his sense of humour, how his face literally lits up when he is laughing ! Dara questions him on his two marriages… And Stephen answers “Women are a mystery to me” and after a pause: “That is the fun”. Brilliant.
And if you still want proof of Professor Hawking’s sense of humour, here is the Little Britain sketch from Comic Relief:
At Madame Tussaud’s…
As you might know I visited Santa in his home in 2013, and even helped out dressed as him in a run. We just wanted to get this message out to you today:
Happy days of Christmas,
Happy New Year 2014 !
We wish you health, love and wealth,
And most of all time to enjoy them…

Now that MobileMe and my picture albums there do not exist anymore, I am posting some images here. I started with my trip to the Lofoten to see the polar lights.
