STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT

Tonight you ought to bundle up and spend some time with a hot-blooded someone out under the stars. That's right, I said under the stars!

It's time for the annual Geminid meteor shower (the biggest meteor shower of the year!)which scientists claim should produce up to 120 meteors per hour, and believe me it's usually worth braving the cold! If you haven't watched this spectacular display of Mother Nature's fireworks before, check out this article, Year's Best Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight , at Space.com.

I missed the show last year because of rain and this year I'll have to get some sleep, but hopefully I'll catch a few shooting stars on the way to work at 4 AM in the morning. If I'm awake enough I might even try to take the camera with me in case I find a good place to attempt to take a picture (I'm not in the camera-phone league yet).

Don't forget to take the libation of your choice to fight off the chill. Hot cocoa, coffee, or maybe something a little stronger. Just don't make yourself sick and have a good time.

Ah, man. Meteors. Thanks for the tip. Maybe I'll take a peek.
