The Lutherans sure got a bargain in Grandma; she was the most devout woman ever.

Similarly, it was only in the 1990s that my OH (adopted) discovered that his genetic family on his mother's side (other than his maternal grandmother, obviously, or he wouldn't be here) were also all rounded up in Austria and died in the camps.

According to the comic strip BC, April 20th was another anniversary.



48 years ago makes it 1972.

I can't help but wonder why the artist used it. Had it been an earlier Apollo mission and, of course, a different date, the "one day..." comment would have had some relevance but this was the 5th moon landing.

In my mind they are all remarkable events and I was glued to lift offs, splashdowns and many events in between and Apollo 16 landed on the moon on the 20th. It just seems to me that this strip should have been for Apollo 11.

Maybe the artist had run out of ideas and just looked for inspiration from anniversary dates. Or am I missing something glaringly obvious?

Apollo 16 landed on the moon on Apr 20, 1972. That's the anniversary bit. Cavemen couldn't go to the moon, and that's why he is frustrated.

I am everywhere but in the kid’s case I like to creep up and surprise him.

What's happening when you try to access the site? Seems unlikely it would be hardware related.

Ah, so it's not the website itself. That does sound like a hardware issue, but it could just be the power supply if it's turning off. I've had power supplies die completely on me.
