I have been meaning to answer your question about how I got to achieve google page rank 1. I have been thinking on that. I just know that when I type in most the blogs that I visit frequently I come up with those blogs easily. But I can't find yours easily. I have to go back to 1000 Days Lost in Space and your comment to find you. I type in another blog I started 4 months ago and it comes up 1st also.

Oh!! I just noticed that you have a story about Goddard Space center. Did you know that Mark Goddard (one of the actors in Lost in Space) was actually related to to the man for whom the Space center was named?
