Apollo 11 -- 40 Years Later


The above image, Apollo Moon is also available as a Desktop Background

Today's song is Moonlight Feels Right by Starbuck, released in 1976.

Forty years ago yesterday, the NASA Apollo 11 Moon Mission took off. That manned spacecraft would land on the Moon on July 20, 1969 and soon afterwards the first human to touch the surface made history. Some recently discovered footage of that moment is now available.

I recall listening to President Kennedy's May 25, 1961 speech at that time about sending a man to the Moon. We still reap the benefits of his vision.

My digital image, Apollo Moon page mentions the mp3 link to my cassette tape recording I made on July 20, 1969 of the TV broadcast. I sat watching the TV all day back then.

I'm noticing my fitness improvements through my weekly routines at the Tri-City Wellness Center located in Carlsbad, California. That beautiful facility has it all for me. I'm meeting friendly people each week and hearing their ideas on fitness too.

Back in the late 1980's I created many applications based on Apple's HyperCard product. I was in the Apple Developers program during the years 1983 to 1990, HyperCard was just one of my interests.

Yesterday I found a video link from 1987 with Bill Atkinson and Dan Winkler, discussing that product.

I met and briefly spoke with Bill Atkinson in October 1987 after a HyperCard Demo before the Apple User Group, The Rest Of Us, presented at the First National Bank Bank building in downtown Chicago. I was a Board member of that User Group at the time. Here is my podcast of that story.
