"Crying on a suitcase"
by Casey James.............♠......
Watch 'full screen and volume up high.......;)))..



Boy don’t wait, don’t think, don’t lock the door behind you
Run and jump into your truck, hit the gas, burn some rubber up
Yeah your time’s running out
Do it now

Take a shortcut, take a back road, take the shoulder to the exit

Skip the parking, screw the ticket, hit the curb and leave it sitting
Whatever it takes
You gotta get to that gate

She’s cryin’ on a suitcase

Sittin’ at the airport
Waitin’ on an airplane
Bound to take her out of here
Ooh
They’re gonna call her number
She’ll sit down by the window
The plane’ll leave the runway
And fade into a goodbye sky
You better run while you still got time
She’s cryin’ on a suitcase

Admit it boy you blew it, you really messed it up

You can make excuses if you really want to lose her
It’s all on the line, do or die time
Getting on your knees time

Tell her that you want her, need her, love her, gotta have her

Everything good in your life begins and ends with her
Lose your pride while you can
Come on man be a man

She’s cryin’ on a suitcase

Sittin’ at the airport
Waitin’ on an airplane
Bound to take her out of here
Ooh
They’re gonna call her number
She’ll sit down by the window
The plane’ll leave the runway
And fade into a goodbye sky
You better run while you still got time
She’s cryin’ on a suitcase

Fireball Over Belmont, CACredit: Wes JonesWes Jones caught the fireball over Belmont, CA, at 7:44 PM PDT, Oct. 17, 2012, using the camera at http://astrobytes.net/AllSky3.html.


Check this cool video...............of the 'Meteor' shower over California.........on Wednesday night............!!.. 
The video  takes a major turn for the worst.........when some 'knucklehead biker'..........opens his mouth.....!!
Apparently the sky isn't the only place where there's ROCKS...........!!!!!!!!!!!!







WOW....!!!!

A meteor lit up the skies over the Bay Area in California in....... what experts say... is debris from Halley's Comet.



Hundreds of residents from Oakland, San Francisco and Santa Cruz called
 ABC News station KGO-TV, reporting a loud boom, explosions and streaks of light around 7:45 p.m. local time Wednesday.


NASA.com reported that the 2012 Orionid meteor shower is set to peak Saturday night into Sunday morning!!!!!!
"Earth is passing through a stream of debris from Halley's Comet, the source of the Orionids," Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office said in the NASA.com report....


Excited residents took to Twitter and YouTube to post photos and videos.... of the streaking comet.
"Happened to look over, saw like a crescent shaped object, reddish orange in color....
"As it went away it started getting larger.....
 Kind of expanding."


"Basically, you saw small car-sized pieces of rock and metal from the asteroid belt, crashing through layers of earth's atmosphere, ionizing and setting the air on fire in its wake," Jonathan Braidman, astronomer at the Chabot Space and Science Center, told KGO.


The Orionids are one of two annual meteor showers produced by icy pieces of Halley's Comet.....
 The other shower, called the Eta Aquarids,.....
 peaks each year in early May, according to NASA.


Since 2006, the Orionids have been one of the best showers of the year, with counts in some years up to 60 or more meteors per hour.......
Halley's Comet might just be the most famous comet of all time, passing earth every 75 to 76 years.
The last time it passed earth and was visible with the naked eye was in February 1986.

Did someone make a wish on that sucker?!?!? Imagine!!!

Thanks for this post, Jules. I love watching "shooting stars"...

Actually, I love looking up at the night sky ALL THE TIME! It is so...so ...beautiful. No, PERFECT.

I always watch those "mind f*ck" shows that try to teach the lay people the incredible mysteries of the visible universe and the other goodies out there and how everything was created. Just incredible stuff!!!

Sigh.

Too bad it is raining right now. I would go somewhere, away from the city lights, and marvel at the heavens.

Happy upcoming weekend to all.

Love,
GG
