Anyone see it? I missed it, unfortunately...I am too far north for another view.

Those who live in the southern hemisphere can still catch it, I believe...this beautiful picture was taken in New Zealand.

Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
