(Charlie Rood)   Why was I not here on Thursday?   I had a “Father-Son Event”.   No, not me as the Father, but me as the Son.   I was with my 90-year-old father in his hometown of Mt. Clemens to attend a men’s club gathering.   It’s called “The Old Crowd” and it started back in 1880.    Dad needs help getting around so I was happy to take him.   At the event, he was recognized as the longest attending member, starting back in 1954, now 63 straight years!

Another advancement in 3-D printing:

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) _ Spacewalking cosmonauts have set free the world’s first satellite made almost entirely with a 3-D printer. In total the Russians
ended up releasing five nanosatellites by hand. One by one, the tiny craft _ no more than 1 to 2 feet in size _ tumbled safely away from the International Space
Station. The exterior casing of the first one tossed overboard was made with a 3-D printer. So were the battery packs inside. Researchers want to see how
3-D-made parts weather the space environment. It contains regular electronics.   It also holds greetings to planet Earth in a variety of languages, courtesy of
students at Siberia’s Tomsk Polytechnic University, where the satellite was made. The other satellites deployed Thursday have traditional spacecraft parts.

Wake Up Song of the Day:   Sean Kingston “Beautiful Girls“.   Friday Flashback song, when you “flashback” ten-year decade increments to find Number One Songs at that time, songs that are still remembered today or long forgotten, the same for the groups and artists that perform.   This song was Number One for four weeks just ten years ago in 2007.
