Flying in Space

Today, the day that my daughter first got on a big plane and flew to China, was also

1) the day that the real NASA space shuttle Atlantis took off again, the first in 2007, with seven astronauts, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, headed for the International Space Station, and,

2) on "Numb3rs", a repeat of the episode when Dr. Larry Fleinhardt took off in the space shuttle, too!

Also, JD Drew broke out of a persistent slump, hitting 2 3-run homers against the Arizona Diamondbacks . . . nothing to do with flying, really, except the ball flying through the air . . . but notable!

And finally, an amusing quote from Numb3rs:

Dr. Larry Fleinhardt: You know, here's a discussion: Why is it that we remember the past and not the future?

Charlie Eppes: That's a tough one, Larry.

Can't you just see the two of them standing there, saying that?

Hope you're enjoying your trip! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
