Keeping an eye on

Comet Macholtz C/2004 Q2 will pass by the Pleiades on the 7th. With new moon on the 10th, I might even stand a chance of spotting it from here. But I'll probably need an optical aid. Note to self: look for cheap binoculars.

Things I want in my medicine cabinet: a WHO Emergency Health Kit. They don't do things halfway there. One kit is designed to meet the basic health needs of 10,000 people for 3 months. That's a link to UNICEF's catalog, so you can order them as needed. Well, probably not you. The NYTimes says the WHOs shipping in 15 to Sri Lanka.
