The same to you and those near you-- we're doing OK here in Georgia. No matter what the news is, you still have to do chores, wash dirty stuff, go shopping and cook meals. Life has a way of bringing you back to day-to-day labors and challenges.

A Memorial I did this morning in Photoshop.

I am using this for my desktop. Feel free to use it or post
it anywhere you like.

The Background was taken by Digital Camera from this
shuttle mission.

The rest of the pics are from Nasa's website.

There is a larger version on my website here:
