Stargazing, Paul-gazing, and computer screen gazing

Tonight is supposed to be the peak night for the Perseid meteor shower. If it’s a clear night, I’ll head out to my favorite place to view. I will pack my parka as this new Wisconsin-summer type weather is much different than the Oklahoma-summer type weather we’d been having.

Here’s the link to review how to find a dark sky.

If you’d like to start your evening with a little Paul gazing, there’s a big rally at the Waukesha County Expo center today. Candidates for the Senate seat are gathering around 3:30 p.m., the doors open at 4:00 p.m., the event is publicly slated to start at 5:30 p.m., but a little birdie told me 6:05 p.m.

The event is free, but you need to register to attend.

From the Republican Party of Waukesha County:

While the event is open to the public, the event will be ticketed. So, you need to go to the following link to register. After you do so, the website will send you an email containing your ticket(s). You can bring you physical ticket with you, or if you have a smart phone, you can download the phone app that registration sends you. It will contain a QR code that can be scanned once you arrive at the event. If you do not register online, we will have registration at the event! Just make sure you show up early so you can receive your ticket there. Just to clarify, this event is free. Ticketing is just to ensure a smooth process for check-in.

I’ll pop up a post tomorrow if I get something as promised. (I have a special task I’ve assigned myself.) Other than that, I’m out for the week. It’s crunch time on this darn project of mine. The spouse is gone all week so I’m going to pull one of those eat-when-I-want sleep-when-I-want finals-week scenarios and get the thing done.

That’s the long way of telling you I won’t be around much, and if I manage a post here or there I won’t be able to play with comments for long.

While the week is big in politics as we will choose a Republican Senate candidate and watch Paul Ryan being launched on the nation, it’s also one of the last weeks of summer before the kids head back to school. HAVE FUN!
