Have You Walked on the Stones of Years?

Despite the snow, Spring is coming. I know this because I've been listening to "Tarkus" and that's a sure sign of Spring. And indeed we are having a snow event. It stopped for an hour then restarted where it left off, a lunchbreak I guess. Must be union workers.
Anyway, here's some Tarkus for you

There's a big stone in the news.
I'd love to see how this pans out but I don't want to be that old.

Okay, I'm going to put on a fireplace video and watch the snow. It's a rare scene this year. I want to remember it in case there's no snow at all next Winter.

You always find such interesting things to read! I do think that a 460-foot wide rock is no problem though. One missile, and that thing will be a whole bunch of 1-foot wide rocks...no problem. :)

Thanks, STG! Yeah, It's an office building in space.

Hey Laura,
And now we March into Spring....
Now all I need is to have a reminder of Tarkus. I was listening to Tarkus just the other day. This 'Eddy is ready'!

Gary!
And March is coming in like the proverbial lion over this side of the pond.
