2023 April 20 SpaceX’s first Starship launch

SpaceX’s Starship, the largest and most powerful rocket ever built, is about to blast off in the biggest rocket launch in history for the first unmanned orbital flight.

STARSHIP boosters failed to separate from shuttle. They chose to destroy the rocket and caused it to self-destruct. Though it failed to complete it’s mission, it is still the largest rocket to ever fly. This is a historic flight of three minutes and fifty-nine seconds just as the Wright brothers first flight of twelve seconds forever changed our world.



DAY 79° Cloudy. A chance of showers and thunderstorm this morning then showers and thunderstorms likely this afternoon. Highs in the lower 80s. South winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 70%. NIGHT 64°. Mostly cloudy. Showers and thunderstorms likely mainly in the evening. Locally heavy rainfall possible in the evening. Lows in the mid-60s. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph becoming Southwest 5:00 to 10:00 mph after midnight. Chance of rain 70%.

I SET the trash out into the hallway even though I doubt that anyone will be around to pick it up. Even if it doesn’t storm, they’ve just been given an extra to not go to work tonight.

IT was lunch time at Over The Hill Gang. Pizzas, salads, and fruit

THERE were in excess of thirty for lunch today. We have space for double that.

THERE were about a dozen choices for dessert today. I had these with lunch and went back later for cherry pie and ice cream.



FOR supper I ate Ella’s leftover prime rib.

TONIGHT was bingo night and Ella had taken over The responsibilities since I haven’t felt up to it. Calling bingo is not something I enjoy. I started doing it simple as a way to get it off the apartment for a little while. At this point I doubt I’ll return to calling it.
