My Dad takes the most spectacular photographs of the stars. I like to post them here whenever he sends new images to me. This time although not of the stars, its still the sky. A double rainbow no less. **Notice his mini observatory in the lower left corner of the second photo.

I had never been to Comicon until this year.
I've been to all the other cons and always avoided Comicon because I thought
it was too commercial. I take it back. It's all about the fans!
I had a blast. What makes it so great is the fact that 180,000 people attend which means 180,000 people are excited. Excitement is contagious.
As soon as I got there, I was walking alongside Ray Bradbury who was being pushed in his wheelchair. Right then I got a call from my friend who said, "I just saw Brent Spiner. I think he just left."
To which I screamed, while standing next to the legendary Ray Bradbury, "BRENT SPINER!! BRENT SPINER!!??? WHAT? WHERE? HE'S GONE??"
I think I need to get my priorities straight.
Sunken thinking he'd left I headed over to see the new "V" screening.
In the middle of the show right before the lizard reveal, I recieved a text.
"Brent Spiner and Leonard Nimoy are at the Star Trek booth."
I rushed out of the new V, ran downstairs, got lost, panicked, and then found 2 people in Star Trek uniforms who then showed me the way to Star Trek booth.
Sure enough there they were. Android and Vulcan, standing together with no more than 4 people waiting.
As approached, a woman working the table asked , "Are you here for Leonard Nimoy or Brent Spiner?"
At which point Leonard Nimoy was standing next to me and waiting for my reply. "Mr Spiner" I said with a giggle. I then turned and said, "Hello, Mr Nimoy" and he laughed.
Brent Spiner then shook my hand and I said "Thank you Mr Spiner for everything you have done. I find you truly inspiring."
"How then do you find me inspiring?"
"I appreciate your dedication as an actor and well, I also make my own science fiction television program that is inspired by the spirit of The Next Generation."
To which he replied,
"Jennifer I hope that one day you can inspire others the way I have inspired you"
I no longer have the ability to complain.
p.s. and Johnny Depp was at Comicon and I didn't care.
