A Special Blog

Envy is a sin not to be encouraged, yet I do envy those who can, well Robert Heinlein put it in the book Have Spacesuit, Will Travel, those who can "trundle in a wheelbarrow full of money and buy a ticket."

Billionaire Charles Simonyi has paid an enormous amount of money to spend two weeks in space. Fortunately he is willing to share this as much as he can with those of us bound to earth.

He is keeping a special blog while he is in space.

Read it here.

I especially enjoyed his "tour" of the ISS.

You would be less than human if you didn't envy this, Shoprat. What a once-in-a-lifetime experience! I went to the link and tried to watch the video but for some reason I'm having a problem with videos right now. They're coming in choppy. I saved the link and will try again later. Thanks! Walt will love this too.

Well, I went there but all I got was a spinning satellite. Maybe that's a T-shirt I'll print: "I spent a billion dollars and all I got was this stupid spinning satellite blog."
