The tale of the lost tail and other things!

I've been waiting for news about Comet Ison, whose demise was reported a few hours ago. However, recent 'news' says there is hope that some part of it may have survived its sun-grazing encounter.

Apparently, we need to be patient for a day or so until NASA can confirm whether any of it has survived, whether it will grow a new tail and more importantly and excitedly for me, whether we will need to get up early and be able to see what was going to be 'the comet of the century'! See here

Other news in our household concerns DB. A little bruise is still present on his cheek bone, but the majority has disappeared. He was also very pleased to report his scab had finally fallen off, (as it was very tight and annoying) leaving a slight dent in his eye brow area. We are hoping that is the residue of swelling, if not, it will be an interesting feature.


Sorry for the slightly blurred second picture but still haven't fathomed out how to do a really close up picture!. Scar wise, I don't think it will be too bad.

  1. Glad he is well on the mend now.
    Cant wait to see if the comet has survived its close call with the sun, if it has I will be 'comet watching' in the coming weeks.

  2. Well that's certainly a vast improvement, isn't it! Hope the pair of you can manage to stay away from medical arenas for a while!

    1. I think DB will be more interactive this week and asked if he can stop one of the pills entirely.
