Life goes on. Oh, yes it does. And I'm awake at just a little before 4 AM, a normal enough time for me to be stirring. I have my coffee (1/2 caffeine) and Boo the Cat is now inside and asleep in her favorite spot. All is well with my world; for now. But, then again, I haven't looked at the headlines. But…I did look at the quotes for the day and found the one below. It's something to contemplate when you're outside on a clear night and enjoying the spectacle of a star filled sky.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
