Basement, etc.

This past week did you see the SuperMoon? The name SuperMoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, defined as: ...a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit (perigee). In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth.

I guess it appeared 14% bigger than usual and this phenomenon occurs only once every 18 years or so.

Here is a picture I found on-line, taken in Indonesia. Wow!

It is officially spring now. And all the birds are twitterpated (term from "Bambi"). We have had this male cardinal beating himself against our study window for the past 3 days. I googled why a bird would do this and one source said "It is mating season and the cardinal sees his reflection in the window and is trying to chase the 'other male bird' away from his girl."

We are continuing to work in our basement. Recently I put up these pictures in the game room.

Al has off work today so we are working on tiling the guest bathroom in the basement.

We lay the pattern of the tile on the floor.

It is going to look so nice!

Missed the moon. It was too cloudy where we were. Your basement is looking great. How wonderful you are able to do the work! Look forward to seeing it completed. Cardinal photo is great. I haven't seen one this year, except on the winter flag I had on my deck. Had to have SOME winter color!
