Lissa and Isaac Get Blue Shirted! It's Hot. The Imaginarium.

Hello Space Fans,
Yes, I'm still in Arizona on a quest to experience what life on Venus must be like. The heat here is nothing, as long as you stay indoors. And be sure that your indoors are cooled with an ACME PowerBlaster 3000 Air Conditioner.  I've learned not to be fooled by what I see when I look out the window. It may look inviting. It may look sunny. You may want to step out for a walk in the deceptive breezes blowing through the trees and around the cactus. But as soon as you open the door its PHASER SET TO KILL! 

Two Voyager Club Cadets are Recognized.

I'm sad I'm not home to cover the latest breaking news from the Space Center. I got it from the Space Center's Facebook page. Congratulations to two members of our Voyager Club for being recognized for their outstanding work.  Lissa and Isaac are the Space Center's two newest Blue Shirts!  

Lisa technically outranks Isaac because she got hers first and was placed on the payroll. Because all the other Blue Shirts are higher ranked than Lissa, she has nobody to boss around but Isaac.  And I'm told there's a lot of that going around.

Hello From Cave Creek! The Imaginarium.

Hello Space Fans!

Today's Troubadour post is coming to you from my sister's beautiful mission style living room in Cave Creek, Arizona.  Ghost Adventurers is on TV. My niece watches the show while ridiculing it every few minutes.  

Hot is the word for today. Outside temperatures according to the car's digital display range between 104 and 109 depending on the road surface.  I look out the window at the back courtyard. Normally, I'd go outside for a nice poolside read. I'm working my way through a book on World War I naval warfare.  I'm thinking of gathering the inflatables and staging a reenactment of the Falkland Islands Battle in the backyard pool. I'm sure my nephew and niece would appreciate the historical simulation.  Should the water wings represent the British or German dreadnoughts?  One step outside and onto the hot tile convinces me to surrender the battle and retreat back into the comfort of 72 degree air conditioning.  

The Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center will be closed next week so Central School can clean and wax the floors.  School starts in two weeks.  The summer has gone by too fast.  I'll be her for a week or so with plenty of time to work on a few to do items from my Project Voyager Gotta Do List.  One of the items is to finish the Writer's Guide to the Voyager's new sci-fi universe.  Writing a new Long Duration Mission for our Voyager Cadets is something else I'd like to accomplish.  I'll keep you posted.  

Voyager Cadets, this will be an awesome school year with our new Voyager simulator.  If you're not a member of our club, now is the time to join.  Go to for more information.
