The new 14.4 foot telescope is 30 miles from Flagstaff due to city lights. But still a Lowell project, and a win for America.
And it was here in Flagstaff that Pluto was discovered, simply because Lowell saw a timing difference in the annual solar trip by Neptune.

Thanks Dave. My doctors appointment in Vegas is Nov 5th. I'm thinking of rescheduling to the 18th so we can be at a certain Birthday Party in town on Nov 20th. Waiting to get down to St. George before I decide and or call it in.

We will then move to Bullhead City for a few days to a week. Then Wickenburg, Peoria, and Apache Junction... we will make something happen I'm Az... just need to get there first.

This should be fun!
Just make sure you don't stand UNDER the forms, Tim. Actually, I watched such a pour about 12 years ago on my boss's home. They had to use a huge concrete pumper truck to send the mix over the house to the back porch. They used a special lightweight concrete. Very cool stuff.

Tim,

I have some distant relatives who specialize in concrete apparel.
The only problem is theirs always went on the feet.

Tim, if you want to PM me, I dont have plans after lunch today..

I am ALWAYS open for a GROUND FLOOR - SOLID Opportunity if there is room for me to get in on the deal...

Sounds like a permanent position that could take care of me for the rest of my life...

Just Sayin'...

Yep.. we've both been hacking and sneezing and dripping. But it's so beautiful here it's almost worth it... lol.

I can't post pics for a while cause my Pay Pal is messed up and I can't pay my $15.03. Have tried several times. Geesh. Hard to be a supporter sometimes - but worth it in the end...
