Total Eclipse of the Sun
If you are the person Carly Simon was singing about, “you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia to see the total eclipse of the sun.” If not and you are like most of the rest of us, you have always wanted to see a solar eclipse. I know I have.
One week from today, on July 22, 2009 the next solar eclipse will occur over portions of mainland China and the Pacific Ocean. If you are in Shanghai next week, and the sky is clear, you will have the experience of a lifetime. It may be too late to book a trip to Shanghai, but solar eclipses occur on a regular basis and they have been projected out for many years.
In the world of diplomacy, as we could expect after taking leadership of NAM by Egiptian President i see real tectonic moves in the swedish-american direction that is realy shocking and worring me. It looks that they are just falling blindly into this nazi sheme as silly muttons. Lieberman must be most happiest man on the earth right now. But it can be real steep backward not only for me but for all people... The problem for NAM will realy be it corrupted leadership - i see it on Al Jazzira in Palestine. Nothing to worry?
