Misc Ramblings
I know its been a while, but.. lets see where things stand.

First off.. we say farewell to Zoramac who left us during this last month. We hope he finds a new home that will cherish him as much as we did.

We would also like to welcome some new teammates...
nexus, Weezy, and Zemus all of whom felt we might be worthy of their efforts. Welcome aboard my friends, and may we justify your faith in us!!!

We had 9 gold stars during our haitus and lets all give them the honor they deserve!
First off, lets congratulate those who have turned in their first 10,000 credits... kerbel17ken, and Rudolf
Next up is our newest 25,000 members, Shannon Marie Myers, and puddly
Our newest 50,000 Credit member, tooeasy
Our newest 250,000 Credit members, bobpeasley, cjthomas1970, and Humfrog64
And finally, the second member of the team to pass 2,000,000 Credits, Dave Rave.
W O W ! ! ! ! ! You guys are incredible!!!!!

Olive was our top cruncher this month with 84,788 credits, with Dave Rave (* DOUBLE *) in a close second with 83,213 Credits. 3rd place went to squito with 38,807 Credits. And lets not forget Humfrog64 who landed a double by taking 7th courtesy of 23,335 Credits.. BUENO!!!!!

Rudolf was our top mover this month using just 20,337 Credits to manage an astonishing 100 places on the team charts.. by far the biggest mover we've ever seen.. amazing!!!!

Believe or not, we only had 3 movers and shakers this month. Starting off with Trofast who managed to make the move up into the big dogs, and followed closely by Rudolf (* DOUBLE *) and SeaMax USA, both of whom have made a name for themselves by entering into The Chow Hounds with a great show of work. Good job to all three of you!!!!

Anyways, thats all I have for you right now.. Hopefully I'll get back onto the ball with this real soon, So keep your hopes up!!! WOOT!

Earth from Saturn

Explanation: What's that pale blue dot in this image taken from Saturn? earth. the robotic cassini spacecraft looked back toward its old home world earlier this month as it orbited saturn. Using Saturn itself to block the bright sun, Cassini imaged a faint dot on the right of the above photograph. That dot is expanded on the image inset, where a slight elongation in the direction of earth's moon is visible. Vast water oceans make Earth's reflection of sunlight somewhat blue. Earth is home to over six billion humans and over 100 octillion prochlorococcus.
