I want to take a moment to pause and remember 9.11, and to ask you to do the same. Those of us in the U.S. often take for granted the life we are able to lead, and the freedoms we enjoy. Those freedoms were attacked and, likely forever, changed on 9.11. We need to always remember how very fortunate we are.

I have only a couple of things for you this week.

Science News – On the evening of Monday, July 4, barring any problems, NASA’s Juno will be the first spacecraft to orbit Jupiter since Galileo in 2003. Here is a link to an article about the mission. And, for some incredible info from NASA, here is their web presence for the Juno mission: NASA – Juno. It (the page, and space) is worth the exploration.

Interesting quote – (from a character with whom I can relate) Brains first, and then hard work. ~ Eeyore

For my fellow US Citizens – Happy Independence Day! Keep in mind how fortunate we are to enjoy the freedoms that we have. And, remember the price of that freedom. Many have given much to defend it.

Welcome back! Thanks for reading again. I don’t have much for you this week. But, there are three things to, hopefully, initiate some thought.

TED Talk – This week I watched a short TED talk about mindfulness. The talk is by mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe. Puddicombe, a former Buddhist  monk talks about the importance of taking a break – from everything. The talk is worth the 10-minute investment. All it Takes is Ten Minutes 

Interesting study –  Do you think food tastes better with some music? There may be proof that you are right. Professor Charles Spence (Wikipedia) is conducting research on how sound and music affect taste. Prof. Spence is an experimental psychologist at the University of Oxford. Here is the Oxford website for the study of food. And, here is the sound and taste study abstract.

Quote to ponder - “Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of”. Charles Richards. BrainyQuote.com, Xplore Inc, 2016. http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/c/charlesric170739.html, accessed June 24, 2016.
