Starting today I am on vacation. This is my first time off since my Dad passed away last September. I am not planning on doing much. One day I want to go to Chattanooga to Lookout Mountain and stop at the Chicamauga Battlefield on the way home. That is weather permitting. We have been having rain for the past week. We really can't complain though considering the drought. The only other thing is my Mom will be coming down and we will be going to the Aquarium in Atlanta.

Over at Winthrop J. Quiggy's blog, Quiggy's World, he did one of those 5 thing memes yesterday. Here are mine.

5 Things You Didn't Know About Me

I'll cheat here. I already did the 25 things.

I don't like tagging people. Anyone else want to do these go for it. I did leave one out. 5 things I would do if I were a millionaire. I couldn't come up with 5.
Volly and Travis both knew that division is the inverse of multiplication.

Have a great vacation.

By the way, my opinion is that should be a first grade level question, but then I was an astronomy, and by extension, a science fiction freak at an early age.

Obviously the answer is mars.
