A break from regularly scheduled knitting content

The “60 Minutes” NASA segment that aired on Sunday was about the new Constellation program that will head back to the moon, then on to Mars: www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/04/04/60minutes/main3994925.shtml

My husband is the guy at the laptop running the robot. You see him more in the second segment below, one of the “director’s cut” videos my sister found. Phil was on the real show for several seconds, and we found that very exciting. 🙂

Bathroom project: Updated picture to come as we had a sudden surprise last night. Our sewer drain backed up into the same bathroom that we recently dried out! The nice man who helped with the previous problem had this to say when I let him into the house: “I know I said we’d like your business again, but I didn’t expect you to call so fast.” The problem seemed unrelated, and (small blessings) was well timed since we hadn’t built back any of the deconstruction yet. I wish I didn’t have to look for the silver lining in such a stinky cloud, though!
