    The "Super Moon" is supposed to appear 30 Percent larger than normal. I Wonder how the crazies will react?

    Well, I'm planning on running around in the back yard, flailing my arms and howling at it.

    Just for a few minutes though, that flailing bit is really tough.

    Looked pretty nice tonight when it poked out of the clouds. Maybe tomorrow night I'll walk down on the beach to check it out.

    I haven't looked forward to being mooned since lowrider pants came into vogue.
    I remember I was in Korea in 72 and the moon was so full and bright you could actually read by it.

    I'm not ems, but I've worked at a day program for significantly disabled folks and we used to mark the full moon with a big red X. I believe you...

    Saw it last night, and looking forward to spending some more time with it this evening. Beautiful. If you haven't made time to see, you should, if you can, no matter where you are.

    It was too cloudy last night for me to see it! :(

    I'd even bought a six pack of Blue Moon and sat out on my porch;(

    Well that's interesting. I was out fishing last night, and remarked to myself at how big and bright the moon was at moonrise. Snapped a couple quick pictures and went on with catching absolutely nothing and sweating like crazy. Haven't gotten the pictures off my camera but it was really cool.

    Unfortunately we were all clouded up last night so I didn't get a chance to snap some good ones.

    There are the only two I ended up with.
