See this image and more, HERE.

Those tricky devils on Mars not only stir up the red dust, but they leave the dark surface exposed where they have spun.

NASA reports the Martian Dust Devils have been cleaning the solar panels on the rovers.

I had some blood
drawn this morning for some tests. That tiny red dot in the picture is the needle site. I am always happy when someone is good at what they do. Especially if they are doing it to me. Some people can draw blood and you will hardly notice, while others can make the same procedure a painful, wounding ordeal. I guess some people have a knack for sticking us with needles, while others give us the karaoke version.

Here in Redding, we are enjoying a little welcome rain.
