Mrs. SUG Adds Her HEOC
Part of being a successful Mrs. is to have the ability and patience to "train" her guy. Over the years this pint sized powerhouse has done that with my eating and astronomy. Right from the start my eating and health habits came under her items to "adjust" and I have benefited greatly from her wisdom and insights with exercise, nutrition, cooking, and is a consent voice of encouragement in my astronomy outreach. She enjoys a occasional look through the scope as SUG is in the backyard getting really worked up about the photons he is collecting - more than once she has heard " hey Cindy you have got to see this NOW! " Of course my cosmic timings and hers sometimes do not match up as she is doing her online classes, evening yoga unwind. How do you unwind by getting so twisted up?
The Treat : Cindy's Vinegar Chocolate Cake. This item is the bomb - moist, dense, rich in taste and texture with a gooey cooked topping. No diary in the cake, some butter in the topping and low sugar content with a hint of cinnamon. This cake is simply wonderful and when served with some Starbucks Coffee Ice Cream or by itself your taste buds will sing. This one is for the SUG 'S B-day! Usual lifetime of one of these cakes around here is 12 hours - much shorter than the age of the universe.
The Object: M104 The Sombrero Galaxy of Virgo locale is the object that graces Cindy's school laptop desktop. Soon to be seen in our evening spring skies this celestial spindle of photonic delight is a joy in most backyard telescopes. It's dense core, halo along with it's dusty disk are easily seen even from suburban settings. This is a regular object in my outreaches. Cindy loves the pic. Enough said!
