Today is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, when Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. Later he would say:

[B]“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth.
I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.”[/B]

Seven months earlier, on Christmas Eve 1968, Astronaut William Anders had taken the iconic photo “Earthrise” from the window of the Apollo 8 Command Module, in orbit around the moon. That photo shows the Earth as Neil Armstrong would later see it.

Clint…since you have switched your avatar I feel as if I don’t know you. :eek:

It’s kind of weird how you associate people with their avatars so much.

and for a quote…

“When I eventually met Mrs. Right I had no idea that her first name was Always.”

[B]Hi, sandpipper[/B]

I know what you mean about avatars. I especially like Phil’s avatar. If I ever find out that he doesn’t look exactly like his avatar,
I will be really disappointed.

Your quote reminded me of this one:

  • Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

Not sure who the created this one, but this is a what I pray to myself every morning.

“Today is a brand new day. I have been given this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; and in its place is something that I have left behind… let it be something good.” - Author Unknown

“The only thing more stupid than being stupid is not knowing that you’re stupid, Stupid.” - mastergunner99

Very nice quote.

“I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don’t do things half-heartedly. Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.”
