Marching Bands and Flower-Laden Floats Ring in 2016 at the 127th Rose Parade

We love a parade and especially one in Pasadena as we begin 2016. You can “Find Your Adventure” with this year’s theme which celebrates the U. S. National Parks.

“Fishing Follies” epitomizes the spirit of the outdoors and the fun of the sport with 1,000 gallons of water for the pond, two streams and a waterfall.  What a wonderful creation and a terrific theme for this coming year!

As Matt Eisenberg wrote at espnW.com, “To honor survivors like this is an incredible gesture.”

Dozens of women helped to make the epic flyby happen on July 14 when the spacecraft came within 7,800 miles of the planet’s frigid surface. The new photos of Pluto are awesome!

As Cathy Orkin, a deputy project scientist, said, humbly, “New Horizons is about a group of talented, smart people who are passionate about the mission. That’s what makes them awesome.”

You can stay in touch with this mission on Twitter #PlutoFlyby and on Facebook.

Scott Neuman details this gutsy international team’s journey to get into the race and find a sponsor at npr.org.  SCA, a global personal hygiene and forest products company, stepped up to the plate and came up with “the estimated $15 million to $25 million it costs to mount a competitive campaign,” writes Scott.

We say, “Go Team SCA!” Best of luck completing your eight-month sailing adventure. Bravo to SCA for sponsoring them. We’ll be following your amazing race on Twitter!
