If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

Saturnshine. I like it. They should make that the name of an after-shave or a song or something.
Also; RUN!!!

I don't have an interpretation. Thank you for the complimentary Rabbi status though, I'm suitably flattered. I'll get back to you on your inability to use the internet later. Busy having a life here. I hope that you understand.

Nice photos. Makes you think that the definition of a moon should be tightened up though to only include those that look slightly ball shaped. I would call this a moonlet.

What a boring little lump. Where are the spaceports? Where are the sentinel satellites?

Does Uranus have a ring of debris around it?
