Grant. That almost looks like my bathroom. The vanity sink cabinet is even closer on the left side. The empty toilet paper holder is poking me in the ribs on my left.

Well...

That design works fine with the old waterproof Izal Russian-style greaseproof toilet paper of old...

Ouch!

Good to have moved on since those days of old...


Enjoy!

Long weekend here in Darwin with the local show on.
To add to that, some people decided to give driving across the harbour another go, after the previous attempt 40 years ago had to give up due to a rock ledge in the way.

Great news.
NASA restores contact with Voyager 2

Controllers sent the wrong command to the 46-year-old spacecraft and tilted its antenna away from Earth.
NASA's Deep Space Network sent a new command in hopes of repointing the antenna, using the highest powered transmitter at the huge radio dish antenna in Canberra. Voyager 2's antenna needed to be shifted a mere 2 degrees.

It took more than 18 hours for the command to reach Voyager 2 — more than 19 billion kilometres away — and another 18 hours to hear back.
The long shot paid off.

The spacecraft started returning data again, according to officials at California's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Maybe a mere angle, but it means that Voyager would have been transmitting and listening to a point 660,000,000 km away from Earth.

And Earth at that distance is a mere period on the page. Earth->.<

Unbelievable. :-O

Florida cemetery buries widow with wrong husband — not once, but twice.

For the second time in the past year, a deceased widow has been interred with the wrong late husband at Florida National Cemetery.

The veteran’s cemetery, located in Bushnell, first came under scrutiny last August when the cremains of a woman were mistakenly mixed with the wrong veteran’s cremains.

This summer, there was another mistake: A widow’s casket was found in a crypt with the wrong late husband.

Jack Hales, a Texas attorney who specializes in cemetery and funeral home negligence, called the mistakes “horrendous.”

“It’s a very special type of trust that you’re giving and it opens that floodgate for, ‘What else was wrong?'” Hales said. “If they say they fixed it, can I trust that fix really happened?”

Local morticians who were contacted by Nexstar’s WFLA declined to comment on the mix-ups, due to their working relationships with the cemetery.....
