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.
