From Denny: The past month I've been busy rounding up what the readers enjoyed throughout the year on all the blogs. It's amazing what people find intriguing - like the crazy humor post about the sloths over at Dennys Funny Quotes. The sloth post has gone past 30,000 views. People just love the cute little guys in the video. It's for a good cause too - a sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica.

Cosmic Bloodhound: Hubble Telescope Finds Distant Ancient Galaxy?

Check out what Hubble has found in the primordial beginnings of our universe.  
Views to date: 10, 024.  Thank you!



From Denny:  The Hubble Telescope continues to range far into the universe, chasing the scent of the ancient galaxies, pointing the way for us to find. Astronomers are excited about the latest find. How often every day do you find an ancient galaxy? When your spouse asks you how your day was when you arrive home you get to say, ever so  nonchalantly, "Oh, we just discovered an ancient galaxy today that took its light over 13 billion years to get here just to say hello."

Check out some stellar political cartoons chronicling social issues and politics throughout the year, news analysis and opinion.





From Denny:  What a list of news that happened this year! Whew! Sometimes the news and politics were as toxic as the weather - and we all felt like we needed government issue gas masks. Take a look at some of the highlights:

Haiti earthquake
Volcanic eruptions in Iceland and Indonesia
BP Oil Spill Disaster in the Gulf of Mexico (my backyard in Louisiana)
Floods around the world
North Korea threatening to launch nukes
Finally getting the beginnings of a national health bill reform in America - which needs a lot of tinkering to perfect
Another woman appointed to the Supreme Court - not before the GOP humiliated her publicly and drug her through the mud for not being Christian enough - she's Jewish.
WikiLeaks documents released about the Afghan War
Unemployment high around the world like in America and the world economy floundering
Obama's popularity up and down, according to which fool he is listening to as the It Advisor Of The Moment.
The Republicans marching goose step as The Party of No Conscience, No Sense and Don't Care About the Middle Class

What Is The 200 Year Mystery of Epsilon Aurigae?

Check out the latest findings to answer the 200 year old questions baffling astronomers.



Artist rendition of Epsilon Aurigae

From Denny: For a couple of centuries now astronomers have been baffled by the star Epsilon Aurigae (pronounced EP-si-lon au-RYE-gee). They have been frustrated to discover the reason why the brightness of the star always dims for about a two year period. The star's light fluctuates regularly in a cycle of about 27.1 years.

In the winter sky this time of year look up to see Polaris and to the northeast The Big Dipper. Now track along to Capella and just to the right of that is Epsilon Aurigae and it's quite faint. We are in that dim cycle for the star from 2009 to 2011.

Check out the popular science stories this year that fascinated us like the volcanic explosions and earthquakes.



From Denny:  Thanks for all your support this year! What a year of massive planet wide geologic changes: polar glacial ice caps melting rapidly, high scale earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and around the world, volcanoes spewing lava high into the air in Iceland and Indonesia - stopping air travel. It's been a humbling year for the human race on planet Earth. Floods, blizzards, mudslides, oceans rising, the Earth is changing and we are here to witness it.

Just this December we got to see the first lunar eclipse on a Winter Solstice, the first in almost 500 years.  The next one is scheduled for 2094.  Here in my region of the world we experienced the British Petroleum Oil Spill Disaster.  As usual Big Business and the governments like America and Britain have shafted the locals who have gone bankrupt, personal and business.  The millions of barrels of oil still lurks on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and continues to wash ashore.  There are now light orange alligators found off the coast of Florida.

Here in Louisiana BP's oil spill devastated our fishing industry, killing the oyster beds and safe fishing grounds for everything from shrimp and spillway crawfish to salt water fish.  The fishing industry has declined by 70 percent with no help from BP or our federal government.  Big Business is just plain greedy and refuses to take care of the planet and future generations.

Out of this oil spill disaster has come some interesting ideas of how to clean up future oil spills.  More ideas abound for new types of alternative fuels using the ocean to help produce it.  Humanity can be innovative and creative if we just curb our greed to use our resources faster than we can replace them.

Take a look around.  There are plenty of humor posts too and lots of technology cartoons for a grin.

28 Awesome Desktop Calendar Wallpapers

Check out the most interesting offerings from some great designers this year.



From Denny: Smashing Magazine has put out some real beauties for the "calendar challenged" where I culled out the most interesting and beautiful choices. Why print up a calendar  when you can display it on your monitor? Check out just a few of these beauties.

They come in several monitor resolution sizes - and without the calendar - if you just enjoy the photo.  You can even vote for your favorites on the site - which I did.  I figure if someone took the time to create, send, choose, upload and post them then I can vote for the ones I enjoyed the most. :)

The designers hail from countries all over the world:  America, Spain, The Netherlands, Myanmar, India, Nepal, Italy, Portugal, Russia, Poland, Romania, Moldova, England.  Be sure to check out their links as most have links and are some interesting design, illustration, flickr or photography sites.  Enjoy - and be sure to let me know your favorites! :)


*** All of these delightful designs can be found in five resolution sizes, with or without the calendar, at Smashing Magazine:  Desktop Wallpaper Calendar January 2011.
