SPRING! / Great Drumming Video / Obama Calls the Astronauts

Several things I really enjoyed have come to me in the last few days….
Here, for your enjoyment, I offer them.
Happy Praying Mantis – looks like he’s celebrating SPRING!
This is a video of a marching/performing drum corps doing their thing – with great precision and a lot of fun! I had a great big smile on my face watching them!
And finally, here are links to videos (three parts) of President Obama’s call to the astronauts on the space station, including questions from kids and a couple of members of Congress who were there with him as he spoke to the astronauts. The view is of the astronauts, all arranged together in a group as if they were sitting on bleachers, but they are sort of bobbing up and down, because they are being held in place by anchoring their toes. If they let go, they would float away. Every now and then a stray object floats by. The woman astronaut’s hair is a big halo around her head, fanning out in all directions. I found it quite interesting and ended up watching all three parts!
