Boxing Day

I survived another Christmas. Gorgeous sunrise again today.

(Clicking on photos enlarges them.) 
Of course, OF COURSE, I know the sun doesn't actually "rise"; It's not moving; I know that it's the rotation of the earth that makes it look like the sun is rising but I'm pretty sure that we will always talk about it as though the sun is "rising". Regardless, it's always beautiful to see - to watch, actually. You can actually see the sun move (well the earth move).
The other day someone was talking about how fast the earth is moving around the sun; how fast our entire solar system is moving through space; if there was an atmosphere, the sound would be deafening, destructive probably. (Think of how much noise a fast moving car or a jet plane makes.)
So, like a tree falling in the forest, if no one is there to hear it, does the falling tree make a sound? Duh! 
If the earth and our solar system are moving at an incredible speed through space and there is no atmosphere, is there really any sound? Hehehehe!
Totty comes for affectionate scratches now. That's previously been a good sign of pregnancy! She normally doesn't want to be bothered with that silly kind of stuff.
Time for my second cuppa!
Wake up! Time to get ready for company!
