    All very good picks, but I esp. enjoyed Commander Hadfield singing Space Oddity. Here’s a man with a backup plan, awesome voice! Prelude to War has the immediacy of impending disaster, although I don’t see it happening, cooler heads will prevail. I see us DESIGNING OUR UNIVERSE — Epica — A New age dawns. 🙂
    Watch this, there’s hope for us yet. Be well.

    • I think Chris Hadfield is retired, now. That was recorded on his last space flight. Back up plan, back to Earth. 🙂

      http://www.shiftfrequency.com/ Newsletter and blog to which Zen Gardner is a regular contributor. I occasionally read something, usually by other authors, rather than Z.G. Thank you for the link, but what part of the post, video on Jean’s blog did you want me to pay attention to, in particular? I didn’t see any comments from you, but maybe I missed them. ??? Is this the “Wisdom Counsel” representative hierarchy that you think would be ideal? Or??

      Sorry to take so long to reply. I’ve been away from the computer …. back for a moment …. I’ll check in again a little bit later.

      Have a Happy 😀
