I can’t believe how little press and interest the fact that we’ve got 2 rovers cruising around on the surface of another planet has generated lately. Personally, I think it’s one of the coolest things that’s happened in my lifetime! We’ve got these two vehicles moving around, exploring, experimenting and allowing us to learn about a planet that is very much like ours will be in a billion or so years, and no one seems to care! I check in every day and read the press releases and look at the newest photos because I sure won’t see them on the news or read about them in the main-stream press. Thank God for the Internet.

I think this thing is cool.

Gotta give a shout-out to Eddo. He mentioned a new artist to me, Joss Stone, and while I think he noticed her mostly for her looks (she IS cute) I picked up her CD today (The Soul Sessions) and was completely blown away. This girl has got SOUL! She’s got the pipes of Janis and the soul of Aretha…and she’s a 16 year old white girl from England. (in fact, I’m listening to it right now, and she’s got BETTER pipes than Janis…in fact, she sounds like no one I’ve ever heard!!). Pick up this CD if you’re into good blues/soul music (think Blues Brothers soundtrack). It’s going to be fun to follow her career. This CD is all covers of classic soul songs, but her new CD coming out later this spring, is all original stuff. I can’t WAIT!
