Look Up!

You might want spend tomorrow looking up and have on a pair of sneakers in case you need to make a run for it as a big piece of space junk comes down from above.  This website has a cool video taken by a Frenchman of the falling satellite on the 15th.  Of course, you only have a 1 in 3,200 chance of getting squashed by space debris, but wrong place/wrong time and all that.  NASA is actually keeping tabs on the thing and will let people know who'll be in the 500 mile circle of space garbage raining down as they continue to track it. Hope someone's house isn't in that swath - not much they could do about it!

While it seems unlikely that we'll be dodging rubbish from the cosmos or getting much from tropical system Orphelia, we are hoping to run/walk/climb in the Independence Anniversary Brimstone Hill Run for the Fit & Fearless on Saturday morning (well, maybe hoping is too strong a word) and watch our friends struggle to kayak from St. Kitts to Nevis during the Turtle Tours 2nd Annual Kayaking Challenge (for charity) Sunday morning.  I'm not really sure why we do these things to ourselves, but it certainly keeps life interesting (see Calendar for details).
