I think in the movie “Apollo 13” the astronauts and NASA took such dangerous risks to send people to the moon because at that time no one had been on the moon and for people to land on the moon would have been a big achievement for NASA and mankind. They would get more information about the moon and space, which is why it was such a big deal for the Apollo 13 mission. The astronauts were viewed as such national heroes because they made it safely up and back alive, especially since it’s scary and such a dangerous risk.

January is the one month out of the year that I wear glasses. I’ve got time for leisure reading and watching a little TV, and I spend all my work time on the computer.

I’m outside in the barnyard doing animal chores twice a day, but beyond that my hands are staying quite clean.
