Back to earth — and sea

I watched NASA TV this morning and the smile on Nicole’s face went from ear to ear as she operated in zero gravity aboard Discovery. How happy we all are for her.

Now back on the rock they are having a bit of a problem with the Portugese — and before I am accused of racism — I mean the man’o’war variety. That’s the jelly, or jellyfish, as we used to call them. For the first time in five years they are coming inshore around the south of the island. Nasty stinging things they are, too.
