    as I had to go to bed earlier - exhausting day.  When it went off I sprang out of bed like it was Christmas morning.

    I think I'll take today to celebrate by watching this news on different venues all day and ignore the petty, negligible politicians.  This event will live across time; most of them will never make it to any history book.

      Good news is always welcome.  And it was sort of like Christmas.

      but then the BBC Announcer said that Curiosity had safely landed, I bounded to the desk and turned on DK for DarkSyde's post.

      Now back to bed. Fascinating!
