    Hm, I see what you mean
    I think since most of us have our pages broken up so we're not seeing posts from 2010 and the formatting thereof, it's not such an issue, but I also think that since this topic has been running for three years it's about time to roll the darn thing into a new version anyway. Stay tuned.

    Thank you, marye
    You're right. I had my options set at 300 posts per page, changed it to 10, and now it looks fine. Thanks again.

    I think it's just you
    although it may be a function of how many posts you're choosing to display on a page. I'll go take a look at cc's post of 9/30/2010 and see if anything's odd.

    Hey, is it just me, or does this page not display correctly? The post boxes seem much narrower here than in other discussions. Did someone not close a < table > tag? < edit > It looks like all the posts since September 30, 2010 are nested as replies under c_c's post on that date.

    Gotta love LDS missionaries
    They are always young and enthusiastic and well dressed and educated. I like them better than Hare Krishnas or Jehovah's Witnesses, which I don't see around anymore. Moonies either. Ocho freaks are gone too. Ohh well, guess we're stuck LDSers and other minor cults. I don't mind giving them a drink and discussing their cosmology with them. Their version of world history is like a Disney movie! But, you know, whatever you want to believe. More freedom to you.

    Mormons, Lilly. Sorry about that. I'm partial to referring to them as LDS, since it somewhat dyslexically resembles one of my favorite acronyms. I thought about asking them about Romney and the Etch-A-Sketch uproar, but I was feeling pretty mellow at the time and didn't want to get into with them, politically.

    Last Night
    I live in the mountains of southern California and at dusk last night, Jupiter was visible just above the horizon, Venus was higher in the sky and the Moon hung above them both. I was standing out on my front porch taking it in when a couple of LDS missionaries walked up and asked me how I was doing. I told them that it was a good night to be pondering the infinite and when they tried to work that idea into the introduction of their spiel, I told them that the visible heavens were enough for me and wished them a fine evening.

Directly below Venus towards the horizone the next brightest object is Jupiter. Now turn 180 degrees and you will see mars shining a soft red. Magic!

When I saw the Moon and Venus last night, I looked for Jupiter, which has been nearly aligned with Venus in the evening sky the last couple of weeks, but it seemed to have set. I'll step out a bit earlier tonight and see what there is to see.

March has been a great month for viewing the waxing moon, Jupiter & Venus.When Venus passes from the evening to the morning sky on June 6, 2012, it’ll swing directly in front of the sun. This is called a transit of Venus. Transits of Venus are rare, happening only two times in the 21st century, with none in the 20th century. I think Mars can be found within Leo: will advise.
