Catholic Schools Week
Ahhh yes. Catholic  school girl uniforms. Every school boys fantasy. (and probably way too many oldschoolers!)

Oh Excuse me! This is a week to explore the values of Catholic School education. Look for open houses and other functions at your local Catholic School.

I played with your heart, got lost in the game
Oh baby, baby
Oops!…You think I’m in love
That I’m sent from above
I’m not that innocent

Anniversaries of US Space Catastrophes
Its a somber time at NASA this week with the anniversaries of the Apollo 1, Challenger, and Columbia catastrophes.

On January 27, 1967 a fire broke out in the capsule of the Apollo 1 space capsule while astronauts were undergoing flight simulations. The fire killed the 3 astronauts aboard – Command Pilot Virgil I. Grissom, Senior Pilot Ed White, and Pilot Roger B. Chaffee.


On January 28, 1986 the space shuttle Challenger exploded during launch killing all seven crew members – Dick Scobee (Cmdr), Michael J. Smith, Judith Resnik, Ellison Onizuka, Ronald Erwin McNair, Gregory Jarvis, and the first “teacher in space” Christa McAuliffe.

On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated during re-entry over Texas. All seven crew members aboard perished – Rick Husband (commander), Willie McCool (pilot), Michael P. Anderson, Laurel B. Clark, David M. Brown, the first Israeli astronaut, Ilan Ramon, and the first female astronaut of Indian birth, Kalpana Chawla.
