These are some of the most beautiful astro-photography pictures I have seen.
Although, I still enjoy visual astronomy, astrophotography has gained the upper-hand and requires my full commitment. Had I forseen what amount of time, perseverence, technology, know-how and – in the end – money would be necessary in order to produce first-class images, I would have had second thoughts about it – only to pursue the same path again!

Make a dollar look like a shirt.
At least they have in one franchise:
You can still order up a Big Mac and fries at the only drive-through McDonald’s in this Eastern Oregon farming town, but you’ll have to go by way of North Dakota.
That disembodied voice directing you to the next window is coming to you live from 1,300 miles away in Grand Forks.
The fast-food restaurant along a busy stretch of U.S. 395 is one of only a handful in the country using a call center designed to speed up service.
McDonald’s owner Lee Adams is lovin’ it, but some customers aren’t so sure.
Adams sees it as an opportunity for his franchises to become friendlier and more efficient — and bring in a lot more business — by freeing up workers to concentrate on making the food, not taking orders.
The humor here
is, for the most part, unrehearsed and unintentional. Hundreds of quotations are listed. There are lines spoken by people intending to say something else. There are lines spoken by people who misunderstood something or other. They may or may not have known any better. The intricacies of human language may have fouled them up, or perhaps unfortunate slips of the tongue led them to ignominy. Whatever the case, there’s a lot to laugh at.
Such as the following from the Accident Report section.
“A pedestrian hit me and went under my car.”
“Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don’t have.”
“To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the pedestrian.”
