In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

For the Coldplay fan in all of us

I think this may be my new favorite picture of Coldplay.

Wait a minute, what's up with Will's hair? And does this mean he's a redhead?

Music list

So I am compiling a list of music I would like to have on cd. I have racked my brain and come up with quite a few good ones, and even gotten some suggestions from a couple other people.

This is your chance to suggest music you think I would enjoy listening to. Musician or composer (i.e. for classical music).

I look forward to getting LOTS of suggestions!

I decided to list some of the musicians already on the list, to give you an idea (cause Dad was saying Gene Autry and Chet Atkins, and I'm not so much a country music fan, though I do have Johnny Cash on the list).

One Republic
Franz Schubert
Claude Debussy
Dan Fogelberg
Lily Allen
Irving Berlin
George Gershwin
Cole Porter

Never fear, I am going to come up with a special list of just Coldplay stuff I don't already have:)

What's your favorite astronomy picture?

I love the Astronomy Picture of the Day website that NASA has. I learn a lot about astronomy and science and see some of the most spectacular sites in the universe. It's a great thing. So I thought I'd post 3 pictures that I've gotten off that site and see which ones are your favorites (only pick one). Tell why you picked the picture, too.

This is called the Central Molecular Zone. I'm not sure how the image was taken or changed for it to have these colors, they may not be what would be visible to the naked eye.

A black and white image of Saturn's rings

I don't think this is a natural color image. But anyway, this is Mercury.

So pick your favorite!
