    Like you I was also fascinated by the small dots up in the sky. Still fascinated today but different. Now I question everything in life. Are we alone or are we not alone? No answer would satisfy me enough so i keep digging to find meaning in life even if there is none. What would be more scary, being alone in the universe or being not alone?!

    As it becomes clear that almost every star out there has a collection of planets it becomes statistically more certain that some of these exo-planets will harbour life. I personally don't believe we are alone.

    Yes. Up to 400 billion stars in the milky way and up to 2 trillion galaxies. So there are more stars then all the grains of sand on this planet. We are a young species and many other species out there have a lead of millions if not billions of years.

    Yep they have been and still my first love. They have been a life long obsession. My life has been built around this love of horses. Mrs C do you still have them ?

    We have to talk. I have an issue with my Pom. She barks constantly whenever anyone gets up to move. It is terribly annoying. Any advice?

    Could be she's keeping everyone rounded up and in place or maybe thinks she's going for a walk, would be my best guesses.Dogs can be weirdo's at times and never cease to make liars out of their owners,or mine do.

    Right she wants us all tog. Perhaps a herding instinct. It is so annoying.

    Yeah, we get dogs as pets and companions to fit in with us but you end up trying to fit in with the dogs.The jack russells are the hardest to live with among the dogs I've got.The whippets are very laid back and quiet,so get to live indoors.

    They are from the Spitz breed...and Poms are natural watchdogs because of it. My Harley is the same way. A butterfly passes the window and I know about it in summer. Snowflakes? Sure! I know about them.
